Even though Nokia has already ditched “the burning” Symbian OS as a viable mobile platform for its handsets, the company has promised to roll-out Symbian updates until 2014. Nokia’s recently released camera-monster and probably the last Belle powered handset from the company, the Pure View 808 runs on the latest version of
Symbian Nokia Belle FP1.While the Finnish company has not announced anything about the next version of Symbian, it looks like it’s silently working on Belle FP2 a.k.a Symbian Donna.
A video has surfaced on YouTube that shows a pre-release version of Nokia Belle FP2 in action on RDA (Remote Device Access). The video clearly shows all the new changes that Belle FP2 will bring with it including a new swipe-to-unlock system, new transition effects, new camera UI, new widgets, an enhanced keyboard with a predicition system, a much better gallery and web-browser and many other UI enhancements.
Below is the near 5-minute video in question -:
The video also shows a new music player and navigation bar, which should please quite a few Symbian users. Symbian Donna in all probability is going to be the last major update to the “burning platform” and should keep the software engineers are Nokia busy, until Windows Phone 8 powered handsets from the company hit the shelves later this year.
