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?
hey everyone.. I just updated my nokia 500 to nokia belle.. nd it is awesome.. its beautiful, simple and a great improvement on usability.. :) finally i am happy with my phone.. :)
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
FYI: angrybirds works so perfectly fine with nokia 500 belle os....
after update to belle:
1. got a refreshing interface
2. camera has a better performance
3. browsing using opera mini is sooo fast
4. browsing using the nokia browser is waaaaaay so laggy

Tiaan, 16 Feb 2012Same here in souther africa. Nobody cares about android, symbian or wat ever. The know of ipho... moreu mean rich guyz ipod haha, y spend all tht cash when u can't make reliable calls?
ChocolateFhunder, 16 Feb 2012Just say it, it makes better calls than the iPhone. If the Nokia 500 is just for phone calls I... moremy point is even a $50 nokia makes better calls than an iphone. ppl forget all those apps is useless without reliable connectivity(net).
i'm sure nokia has optimise belle on dis even without a gpu, ignorant ppl.
