Nokia 500 Belle update is now finally rolling out - read the full textNokia 500 is running Symbian Anna out of the box, but its performance is quite disappointing. The reason is quite simple - there is no GPU in the Nokia 500 and its CPU is handling the GPU calculations instead. We can't promise you the things will get better with the Belle update, but still - it...

Belle works great on the Nokia 500! Very smooth and finally has angry birds.

seriously gsmarena, you are being mean to nokia and their users. this news is so bad having a positive headline and a negative content.

i hope you do remember your posting rule:

Please no foul language, be polite and use common sense
No expressions of hatred
No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand
No trolling - deliberately antagonizing other brand/model users

so please say sorry.

A couple of the reasons some people still prefer symbian is the onboard ovi maps as not everywhere is covered by cell coverage and the voice dial without having to have a net connection. I'm not a symbian,android,bb,apple user but a good old fashioned feature phone user

So basically this article says they're upgrading the dead OS (come on, Anna was dead before it even came out!) on a boring phone that never worked well in the first place?

Why did they even make Anna if they were developing Belle in the background?

I don't get it , the Headline for the news says "Nokia 500 Belle update is now finally rolling out" BUT yet GsmArena is bashing nokia about no gpu, belle is terrific update and if in their testing they see it wouldn't be beneficial to end user Nokia wouldn't release it for the 500, they did it,users are happy, that's what's up, not more criticism, I sense so much criticism from Gsmarena towards nokia for some time now
