ok, this is weird.
How can some thing named "Carla" before, now become FP1?
If they meant it, why don't they said it in the first place, that FP1 is Carla?
Or they just don't want bad reputation that they have canceled Carla, and maybe Donna?
FP2 will be Donna?
And what about the promised they had made a couple of months ago about upcoming "Donna devices"?
Wow, Nokia, you such a good lier, and admire that!
Well, guess no more Nokia's products for me then. What if someday they don't support even their Lumia-s anymore?
Goodbye Nokia, your time has passed.....

This Update has already been received by all Belle users 6 weeks back and the CPU has been over clocked to 1.3Ghz. This is outdated news. If this is Carla update then I think my phone is already running Symbian Carla. Dolby 5.1 surround is present. HTML changes can also be found. What is it that Nokia is trying to say now.This is total fake news!!

Look at sofware version of the device used in the test beside the Carla/Belle FP1 name in both links. The FP2 in bug report 862 is killing me, because it is suggesting there is FP2 before Belle FP 1. I came to the conclusion which goes like this: "First there was Symbian^3 then Symbian Anna(FP1) then Nokia Belle (FP2) after which came Nokia Belle FP1(Nokia Carla)& Nokia Belle FP2 (Nokia Donna).

I'm thinking...
why develop an OS who is expected to die ???
sorry fans, me included, but symbian is DEAD and there is no ressurrection.
but good news nokia will find his beloved son Symbian soon in another world, when it also dies.

Nokia, we're all tired and fed-up with your endless broken empty promises & see-through lies. Maybe it's time someone gets a contract out for wacking Mr. Elop and a change in it's leadership would help clean up all the dirty tactics in dodging your 2016 commitments as you had previously loudly promised us. Liars burn in HELL!!!

> In reply to steelicon @ 2012-05-25 18:25 from 7Xcx - click to readFrom where I stand, you're really making a ton of sense. I can't believe nokia has resorted to such tactics. They want to manipulate instead of convince their customers into buying lumias. Any sober person would market more what seems to have better popularity and if I'm right 808 on symbian and N9 on meego seem more appealing to many as compared to lumias. Exactly why nokia officials cannot comprehend this beats the bajeezes out of me

I dont get it. How coud it be canceled in the firs place? A friend af mine got the update 2 or 3 weeks ago on his 701. The FP1 version for 701 is 112.110.1404 and build date is 30.03.2012 .
This news is wrong. How will start rolling out shortly when its wlready availible. You can check it on Navifirm.

Nokia seem to have mastered the art of self destruct.

1. Meamo never launched globally, when it reached market it was already announced replaced by Meego.

2. S60 replaces Symbiam3. Excellent move, but launced no device with Auto Focus camera. Fixed focus can't scan QR codes. E7 wasted as a top class business phone.

3. Masterpiece never rolled out of factory. N9 oh such a waste of effort. I might just buy one for heck of it, but for that it has to be sold.

4. Symbian showed glimmer of hope with Anna, just then annouce Accenture will now support the product.

5. Excellent experience with Belle. Roadmap of Carla and Donna shown to customers. 808 announced. All very positive past half a year. Now we come to know about this story. Forget camera for a minute, give me a good second reason why I buy N808.

Guys I think MR.Elop is killing symbian before the 2016 commitment and wants NOKIA FANBOYS to move to Windows.... According to this link nokia was working on carla which was supposed to be released after fp1 and fp2 but now they have cancelled it which means that fp1 and fp2 are minor updates and ofcourse the LAST UPDATES FOR SYMBIAN..... *cries*
