But you know people, someone tells someone something he's heard from a friend of a guy whose dad works for someone whose brother in law lives across the street from a woman whose sister's nephew has some blog, and the rumors start, and the people start arguing...

I wonder how long it'll take before this gets 100+ Comments and turns into a flame war? Hmmm... 1 hour, tops is my guess.

This all looks simply too weird. If Carla and FP1 have always been the same thing, why weren't they kind enough to mention it before? Now they seem to be merging names to hide the shame. Will they later say FP2 equals Donna? I smell the horrid odor of broken promises around. I hope you play nice Nokia.

BUT ALSO PROBABLE

That Italian guy is telling the truth and the rest of Nokia is lying.

Sometimes FACTS are stranger than FICTION.

I wouldn't be surprised, because the same situation HAS HAPPENED BEFORE.

This is no guarantees news, only a rumor unless verified by various sources.

Smoke and mirrors.

The cat is already out of the bag. I'd love to believe otherwise but in the light of the events it's hard to trust Nokia's CEO and BOD now.

Symbian's loss is Microsoft's gain but not necessarily equitable to Nokia's gain as well, might even be the cause of the demise of the once great and admired Nokia that we once knew of, my dear friend.

Here is my take:

1.) MAYBE they were really working on Nokia Carla; then
2.) MAYBE they CANCELLED the devices for Nokia Carla to pinch pennies in favor of Windows Phone 7.5 / Windows Phone 8; then
3.) MAYBE they also CANCELLED the devices for Nokia Donna that runs DUAL CORE for the same reason above; thus
4.) MAYBE to save bad publicity they DECIDE to call Nokia Belle FP1 as "Nokia Carla" and Nokia Belle FP2 as "Nokia Donna" WITHOUT committing to DUAL CORE. Think of it as a RETCON (Retroactive Continuity). Trying to cover up their gaffe by REMAKING their Nokia Symbian Development Path.

Reason? To avoid bad PR, to promote current Symbian devices AND MOST IMPORTANT to FREE UP RESOURCES in favor of Windows Phone.

It has been done before to Nokia N8 and Nokia N9.

Nokia, don't think we don't know what you're trying to do.

There is no secret that can be kept hidden forever.

I say it is a load of bull. Nokia, don't you think we are not keeping an eye on you? Do you think we'll let you off the hook that easy? You have been caught many times before lying between your teeth. You have been caught with your pants down. Admit your faux pas, the cat's out of the bag. DELIVER YOUR ORIGINAL PROMISED SYMBIAN DEVELOPMENT PATH!!!

Now Nokia have 808 Pureview which i will buy it just for the camera, i wish Nokia put this camera in a S40 phone, a featurephone with a superb camera, that's what i need.

You see? it's not that i love old technology, i just don't buy or use anything that i don't need or want.

It will come out at the end of this month in India, Russia and maybe UAE. Europe will get it in June , UK also in June and maybe some country's will get it in July.

As many of us know dat symbian can handle single core without lags. . . And it can also shoot 1080p. . Why one wants a donna update. . . Wit dual cores?. . . . And in my view donna would.nt be as complicated as android or ios. . To use dual core. . . . . So y dat in btw
