Updated with Nokia’s response below. I updated my Nokia N900 to Maemo 1.2 and wanted to start everything from scratch. The first thing I wanted to set up was my email. To get push email on the Nokia N900, I needed to add my Gmail accounts through the Nokia Messaging option. To my surprise, it was not listed as an option after I updated.
Summer is approaching and ending for others, but it won’t stop me from fishing for apps at the Ovi Store. It’s time again to share my catch.
