i dont know why you guys are making a big uproar on old devices not getting update.nokia had spend a lot of time tweaking belle to support old hardware.and nokia is not exactly giving upon old devices they have confirmed some features will come to old devices.
Lets check the case of samsung they are giving ics update to only dualcore phones.android gives a support of only one year.sometimes not even that.
The software update is possible. But how is possible to upgrade hardware through software that 1 to 1.3ghz? no way to increase as per my knowledge.
If any technical person read this, please kindly reply. It's possible to update hardware through software or not?
poor N8 user, 01 Mar 2012 I hate nokia ! Can't they provide us at least with this update??? Why apple managed to supp... morehahaha .. you talk as like a child, do not compare belle with the IOS, this is different .. I think you do not know when it's updating(means iphone 3gs) your phone to ios5 will make your phone is running very slow .. try to think logically, if nokia n8 get this update will make your phone slow, that's why nokia did not plan the updating to all nokia phone that have been using the belle system, .Nokia has thinking the risk before making an update to their phone.
So... Will these devices get fullHD video recording too (701 and 700) ?
It's this thing with us ((Human beings)) , which is Pretty damn weird ....so if I was from planet Mars, I Would "shoot my self"....
Meaning : If this FP1 update came out now for all Belle devices , including the 1st generation ,,, then after only one week Another Major update was announced for the (701 ,700,603 ) , we're still gonna complain like Nagging wives ......
no point, 01 Mar 2012geezz..honestly did u guys expect (hope) that they will continue updating older devices foreve... moreTotally agree with you man. These fanboys are waging war to each other while the companies themselves don't have much love to their old devices.
Yaser, 01 Mar 2012Nokia Realeased Anna and Belle for N8 and the other Symbian 3 phones !
now we have to buy n... moreBe happy that you had so much support till now...
Anyway, it's time for the 808 PureView!!!!
wiseguy70502, 01 Mar 2012Is nokia trying to alienate its consumers because this kind of service reflects poorly on noki... morelmfao... Tell that to galaxy s owners who bought one in the last 6 months, only to be told by Samsung their phones' won't be updated to ice cream sandwich.
This is "Feature Pack 1", not Symbian Carla. It's designed specifically for the 1GHZ Broadcom Chip

why don't mobile companies create a fanbase group that handles updates for devices that the company has given up support? or anyone who has indept knowledge on mobile software to do that by getting other techie guys and gals online and work up something...just to keep the old legacy.
but what about nokia 500? it also has 1GhzCPU but 2d GPU. either it will get the FP1 or not, im fine with 500 belle.
Got SGS way back 2010 but not able to update due to network restrictions. Got N8 the same year and able to update to Anna then Belle. Who has better update support?
geezz..honestly did u guys expect (hope) that they will continue updating older devices forever?
in the end, its business that is important..old devices die, new devices sales pick up.. fan service wont help them survive this vicious battle in the mobile world.
on another note, how far can we overclock the cpus in those belle family..lets find out!! hahahahhaha
making it hard to decide on what phone to get!
windows phone 7 or symbian ????
meego im not to fussed by, wasnt to keen on what i have seen!
a dual boot... that would be good!
I hate nokia !
Can't they provide us at least with this update???
Why apple managed to support iphone3Gs(680Mhz,256Ram,,same as N8!!)with the most advanced mobile OS in the world(ios5),while stupid nokia can't support us with simple belle FP1 update!! I'm not nokia fan boy any more, thumbs up for iphones & Androids.
You guys are funny. Mobile phones uses Operating Systems the way computer do. Does a a specific version of Windows, Linux or Mac Operating System support all hardwares?! Think before you post and complain.
hkr, 01 Mar 2012the oroginal clock speed of N8's processor is 772 Mhz but which is rather downclocked to 680 M... moreif what we think was possible ....WORLD would be a different place bro....if somehow they give d update to N8....& it becomes clumpsy & laggy .... u wud bash NOKIA dat they didnt optimised it & so on.....those r engineers & real people who knw what will wrk on what.....they did a gr8 job by opmitizing 680mhz N8 for BELLE....PLS dont expect more....U jus need to stop crying alwayz , u cant get every thing what u want in a LIFEtime ;)
