The Nokia Lumia 900 has been turning heads since it appeared on store shelves in May. As part of our ongoing commitment to our Lumia owners, today we’ve announced the availability of a software update that brings numerous enhancements to the Nokia Lumia 900 in the United States and Canada.

Many of the enhancements released today are a result of feedback we’ve received on TwitterFacebook or by leaving comments here on Conversations.

Thanks to those who have given us feedback on the Lumia 900 experience. 

As soon as you have the opportunity, be sure to update your Lumia 900. To get the update, you can use Zune for Windows:

If you’re a Mac owner, you can use Windows Phone 7 connector to update your device.

Please note: For this particular update, there will be three updates to install and the entire process will take up to 30 minutes to complete.

You’ll see the following messages on your phone:  “Success! Your phone has been updated” followed by a message “An update is available…”.

There is no need to tap “close” or “ok.” The phone will continue to the next update automatically. This will happen three times before you should disconnect your phone.

For US Lumia 900 customers

This update brings the following enhancements for US Lumia 900 owners:

  • Flip-to-silence feature
  • Camera performance enhancements
  • Battery performance enhancements
  • Startup sequence performance enhancements

Most Nokia Lumia 900 owners will appreciate the Flip-to-silence feature, which mutes your ringer if you turn the phone over. This will come in real handy if you’re in a meeting or with a close friend and you wish to not be interrupted.

Also, the enhancements will allow users to more reliably be able to open the camera when the phone is locked using the dedicated camera button.

For Canadian Lumia 900 customers

This update brings the following updates to your Lumia 900:

  • Flip-to-silence feature
  • Support for Contacts Share app, to send and receive business cards as text messages
  • Proximity sensor performance enhancements
  • Removes purple hue which affected some phones in low-light conditions
  • Startup sequence performance enhancements
  • Camera performance enhancements

The updates mentioned are available beginning today for Nokia Lumia 900s in the United States and Canada. We’ll be rolling out more updates in the future so stay tuned!

We appreciate your feedback and are listening.
