Nokia has started rolling out the much-awaited and hyped, Nokia Belle update for its Symbian Anna handsets. The update brings significant UI improvements to Symbian handsets, along with some new features.
Users can now have up to 6 home screens, resizable widgets, new notification bar, an improved camera app, and a much-improved browser. The update also installs some Microsoft apps on your Symbian handsets, like MS OneNote and Lync, which would be appreciated by workaholics. Nokia also states that Belle would bring a noticeable improvement in the performance of older Symbian handsets. The update also includes many other minor and major changes, which would be appreciated by long-term Symbian users.
The Belle update is being rolled out for all older-generation Symbian^3 handsets including the Nokia N8, E7, C7, C6-01, and the Oro. The Nokia 500 will get its Belle update sometime in the next few weeks.
The Nokia Belle update is already available in majority of markets including India, Russia, UAE, Poland, Germany, Italy and Indonesia. Readers can check out whether the Belle update is available for their handset in their region or not via this page from Nokia.
The Belle update is not being rolled out via OTA (Over-The-Air). Instead, users need to use the latest version of Nokia’s PC Suite to install the update on their handset.
