Only the latest Nokia smartphones will be upgradable to Belle, i.e. Those that can run Symbian^3 (e.g. N8, C7, E7 etc).

say what?
What does using android have to do with some similarities in the UI?
The statement was about using Android that is so bound to one company. Not saying it was a bad os per se.
And nokia ha for some time had extended funtionality in statusbar at the top.

I have a C7 with Anna on board of which is already turning heads with its clever UI. Belle is probably the best OS on the market in terms of mass production. I have seen it for myself and I would ditch Android or iOS straight away and go for for Belle. It trully is better designed and fresh. Do you remember the story of the tortoise and the hare? Belle is Best - And once people have a play, I'm very confident that apple and android will have to make way for the best OS on the market... I mean it! It can do way more and the quality is second to none. There is a hacked version for the N8 already and can also work on the C7 but make sure you know what your doing... I would give up on Android and iOS any day once Belle officially comes out - It really is the best OS - Please use it yourself if you don't believe me. Oh and for the record. - Google and Nokia did help each other a few months ago when they where in talks before Microsoft gave a great helping hand to Nokia. And thanks to a compromise we have a new kid on the block - BELLE!
