Even if the 808 is not widely appreciated history will judge it kindly as a revolution in imaging.

Misses: multiple Exchange support still missing from email applications.

603@India. Update 113.010.1506 showed up on both OTA and Nokia Suite, but none worked. Just refreshed Nokia Suite and update is gone, SWUpdate shows up OTA, but Settings>Phone>Phone Management>Device Manager - Check for updates doesn't bring anything. Eager to install, I'm sure Nokia is on it to make it available for 603@India.

Updated my 701 about 4 hours ago. Decent update for so called a dying OS.

I liked the following :
Keyboard similar to Lumia, with auto Correction definitely mucr more usable however placemats of keys as compared to previous version causing some grief. Example where Back button used to be, now there is Enter. So out of habit you may be pressing Back but you hit Enter. Hopefully I will be habitual after couple of emails.

Music player has brought Artist sort as against Album only sort available previously. Pretty good and useful. Sound quality on headphones appeared better or could it be that I was listening to Michael Jackson who would've sounded exceptional no matter what.

Additional widgets.

Lock screen looks neat.

Improved eyecandy. Menu flow looks better.

DLNA play comes in.

MS Office apps update available as a separate 45 megs download.

Upon update to belle FP2, for brief period the phone was slow in response, but gradually picked up performance and looks quite neat in smoothness.


entering lock code on the lock screen shows battery monitor app briefly. Or could it be just me.

Keyboard doesn't have a scroll back or forward keys,just in case you want to move around to make changes,just takes away everything from a exceptionally brilliant keyboard experience.

I updated my Nokia 700 to Nokia Belle FP2 here in Romania. I changed the product code of the smartphone with NssPro v0.48 to 059G21. Running smoothly, a lot and very nice improvements, good job Nokia.
