My N8 is fine with Belle.
The only reason android fanboys whinge about updates is because they're desperately waiting for critical bug fixes. i.e So their phone is updated from a "completely useless POS" to merely a "complete POS".

It costs a lot of money to port new OS to old devices. It's people like you who ruin Nokia and because of you it'll soon go bankrupt. Without new sales there is no money. The "fun" won't last very long if you don't chip in to support it.

People expect Nokia (company) and Nokias (devices) to live forever. Forgetting that without sales the company will die and that support for many years costs more than a few hundred dollars that are paid only once.
Nokia brought this problem on themselves, d quality of their products are too superb that pple with old super devices continue to expect upgrades. E.g My N82 is still working & till today I still keep checking for updates. Thank God my 701 was listed, can't wait to take delivery of Belle fp1 enroute to Carla & Donna.
If you're truly Nokia fan show your love & loyalty keep & enjoy your old devices on Belle & get new products that can continue d Belle upgrade journeys.
Nokia should try and bring sumthng exciting for their old cellphones like the E72,E7 ect.as other users of nokia smart fones wud like to join in the party. we knw our older fones are capable..
manufacturer are usually ships a device with everything underclocked, due to pro long the device live, let say this, maybe actual CPU speed of those device is 1.5Ghz, then it was shipped with underclocked to 1.0, then they considering something and reduce the underclock until 1.3, it all was possible.
for those who says their device manufacturer is better than other, it was yes and no.
every principal has their own calculation on which device will getting update or not, as you guys maybe dont know, R&D cost of the upgrade is not cheap.
as i know, the criteria of a device will getting update or not is mainly about the market share and the capability of the hardware itself.
hopefully this will answer all your guys question.
thnk a lot to Nokia ,
u wll again be no 1 even in smartphone era soon....
There is some info that 1st gen devices will still get some updates but not the FP1.
Processor speed, ROM size, memory size GPU memory size could be the deal breaker for FP1. Especially thinking about the GPU memory which is only 32MB in 1st gen devices.
But as far as I know the Browser in Belle for example should now be able to update separatedly.. so I hope we get some new widgets and browser update at least for 1st gen devices
good news for nokia belle users...im waitng for fp1..but im afried that all my apps r gng away frm my phone..nokia want to do sm thing...
Anon, 02 Mar 2012lmfao... Tell that to galaxy s owners who bought one in the last 6 months, only to be told by ... moreI'm one of those, who bought it a little over 7 months ago, expecting full well that it was an older model, but i was new to android so before making a mistake of buying say an SG2, i thought i'd take baby steps with the SG1 instead, loved it, all the high end games work on it quite nicely, so i presumed i'd have the same luck with the galaxy 2, half the big game titles crash on the SG2 are unable to render the objects properly due to the poor capabilities of the Mali GPU(compared to a powervr in the sg1) ...
But wow, Why are nokia still pushing Symbian? and increasing the cpu speed? what's the purpose of all this?
nokia gives the best update support for its devices.....currently using 603 it got all da updates....see android buy dual core phones then u will get future updates....wats da use .....Nokia \m/
its not fair on the part of Nokia
old symbian 3 devices that are running with belle should atleast get widgets and c.p.u bump up to 1ghz
its a minimum requirement
unless giving belle to older devices is worthless.
Better give an option of going back to symbian Anna.
Viswanathan, 02 Mar 2012Hi guys The software update is possible. But how is possible to upgrade hardware throu... moreDevice manufacturers have to the option of overclocking or under clocking the CPU. So looks like these models were under clocked to 1 GHz when they were released. Now they increasing the clock speed to 1.3 GHz thru the FP1 update.
Squirt, 02 Mar 2012So... Will these devices get fullHD video recording too (701 and 700) ?No, 700 & 701 will not get Full HD (1080p) video recording as their camera module will not support it. As of now only Nokia 808 PureView on Belle OS has Full HD recording.
Nokia 700 & 701 will have 720p video recording.
Viswanathan, 02 Mar 2012Hi guys The software update is possible. But how is possible to upgrade hardware throu... moreit is possible, much like Android, where you just need to flash an overclock kernal and you can get higher CPU speed. My Asus Transformer comes with 1.0Ghz, but with overclock kernal flashed into it i can get it runnning at 1.6Ghz. The same theory applies, the FP1 will just make the CPU run faster.
I want to see DEMO for Microsoft Apps On Nokia can?
