Description Otto Kekäläinen (reporter) 2010-01-18 12:05:48 UTC
1. Take a brand new out-of-the-box N900 shipped in January 2010
2. Start it and then it asks for you language and locale fill in
3. In settings, go to text input and check what language is in use.

The vocabulary used by text input should be by default the same as the language
a new user chose, in this case Finnish.

The vocabulary was "English".

I don't know, since I can't rerun the new user settings dialog that appears
when one opens a brand new N900. I guess somebody at Nokia could reproduce this
with ease..

Trying to reproduce here with the latest internal release:

I reflashed my loan N900 from Maemo Summit in Amsterdam with English/Dutch
hardware keyboard layout, hence it defaults to Dutch in the interface after
starting it.
By doing this, language proposal in the start screen is reset to "Nederlands
(Nederland)", but it somehow correctly remembers my Region setting "Ceska
Republika" here.
Anyway, in that dropdown I choose Language == "Suomi (Suomi)". Region (Alue)
also gets reset to "Suomi". I click "Apply" (Tallenna) and let the UI start.
Then I go to "Application Menu > Settings > Text Input" (Asetukset >
1st language (1. kieli) is set to "Suomi (Suomi)",
2nd language (2. kieli) is set to "English (United Kingdom)" (the latter is by
default a new setting in PR1.2 and hence not a bug).

Hence I'd say that this will be fixed in the next public release (PR1.2).
Comment 2 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2010-03-15 20:56:05 UTC
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
