What about Belle or at least, Anna for 5800XM...? It's been over two years without FW updates for the tubes. Nokia has dissaponted me as a loyal user by not making updates for old phones. I think my next phone won't be a Nokia again... ;(

I hope the N8 with symbian belle installed would come out soon, I was not able to flash the new os to a old N8 successfully. The N9 on the other hand only accept microsim.

It's also got the best satnav, best sonic experience, best loudspeaker, best call quality, most file format supported, richest connectivity options, most robust build, excellent battery life. Only the software needs a little polishing which Nokia will be delivering early next year. Others, including myself, have Belle already.

It's pointless to brag with one good thing cause you need overal balanced good device and N8 is far from that, that's why it flopped.

GSMarena Will probably add a page to the original N8 review, like they did with anna. But, if you look at the negatives in the first page, most of them would be wiped out by Belle ...

The N8 is rock solid, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. And with symbian belle? Best phone for the price on the market, no question about it.
