There was a news about this firmware sometime back. PR1.1 is already out for N8 and other S^3 devices, that firmware had nothing big to talk about. With PR 2.0 you can notice the real improvements in lacking areas like Web browser, split keypad inputs, email. Those changes are demoed in this unofficial video. The final fw might have better improvement from what you’re going to see now.

Check out the video for yourselves.

Things that one can notice

  • Smooth homescreen.
  • Refreshed email UI with better mark, select delete option.
  • Improved keypad, On-screen Qwerty finally.
  • Revamped web-browser with multiple tabs option, address bar at top, better input option.

Expected date of availability of this firmware is around mid march. Not confirmed though. This firmware update would fix most bugs and is said to improve the performance and user satisfaction rate of the N8. Later this year a new redesigned UI will hit N8 and other Symbian^3 device. This is the most wanted updated for all S^3 devices.
