I'm using leaked Belle. Works fine. User interface is not ergonomic. Everywhere 9pixels x 1pixel fonts are used. I don't wear glasses but it is not comfortable for eyes to read all those small labels. Fonts still don't have antialiasing. In my opinion UI should be redesigned from roots. I'm doing my own theme for it so I see how UI is build. Nokia ignores older user. Fonts are often smaller than on E52 or N97 or any S40 devices screens. Also Nokia font is not display and eye friendly. I heard about new Nokia PURE font implementation /similar to Arial, Helvetica/. It is good idea cause same size fonts are better to read.
Also Home Sreens are really messy. More I wrote on http://conversations.nokia.com/2011/08/24/symbian-belle-the-facts-the-features-and-the-pictures/
i can't see any official details in nokia website can any one tell this is official release date or fake
Waiting for super high-end Nokia Windows Phone 7.5 device! Mango is sweeter! Symbian Belle is the past.
Waiting for Nokia 801 Symbian Belle release ....
iPhone 4S KILLER !!!!!
Google cannot sue anyone.:-). By the way who will copy that buggy android os
I have n8 using anna its gud and now i get nokia store its to gud and i hear belle update will arrive on 26 oct on diwali bt i hope they improve cpu clock speed and nfc support for n8
Symbian Anna has some conflicts with standard Japanization tools. It may come from Qt libraries. Hope to be overcome it in Belle. Or I'm also eagerly waiting for genuine Japanization tools by Nokia.
Does Nokia also provide us upgrade passes to WP7.5?
I need to argue, 08 Oct 2011Copy copy copy. No innovation pure copy. I hope Google sue Nokia hard.Most of it is Maemo, not Android. Why you bother anyway, this is a software upgrade thread for those who have the relevant Nokia phones. You're not effected by the upgrade, dont need busybody(since you're doing it all the time)
Oh! That is what I too was thinking as soon as I read the article. That the Australia, Canada and United States release of Anna was would be held canceled and that we would get a custom Belle-at-once update.
The closest thing to being a copy is the HTC flip block looking clock. Android is the OS that is made up of "barrowed" and "blatantly stolen" code."
Also haters, Symbian Will be officially supported by Nokia until 2016 (per contract with Accenture).
I can't even get my N8 to update to Anna, how in the world are they trying to push Belle.
beckon, 08 Oct 2011Savour it guys...for this going to be the last.There is a Symbian "C" that will be released next year.
FireDragon, 08 Oct 2011Only if they start listening to me they might get us all some good and functional UI and featu... moreIt pays to stick to company that has performed over decades instead of jumping to buy another phone which are more or less copies of one another. C7 when I bought phone it had symbian v3, now they gave anna with unlocked nfc which is not even mentioned in specs. Now belle.. apps are less but then again. what will you do with million apps. install them at rate of 100 a day still your life time won't be sufficient..
already love anna on my e6, now nokia gonna bless mine with belle...love u nokia
I need to argue, 08 Oct 2011Copy copy copy. No innovation pure copy. I hope Google sue Nokia hard.Only if they start listening to me they might get us all some good and functional UI and features without compromising much and without 'copy' tag. Al though I dont think they copied from Android much, as one other person said its mostly coming from Maemo. I really wish if they want to copy then copy Sony Ericsson's UIQ (also Symbian but much better to use, sadly dead now).
UIQ was the only reason I said yes to use Nokia, since it was Symbian. I hope Belle will give some comfort to use.
I need to argue, 08 Oct 2011Copy copy copy. No innovation pure copy. I hope Google sue Nokia hard.actually most of the android is a copy of maemo os, and its ok to copy (but only the good things :)
it in the end we are the one who benefit! Us, consumers, we cant be devided bcs thats exactly what companies want, brainles fanboy who buys everything from them...
