If I were feeling particularly nasty I'd say that this news will affect all of the 16 people who will buy the 808... as it's carrier unsupported (so you have to pay full price for it ON TOP of a contract)... but I assume that older phones are affected by this too... again the few that own them...
I assume the 808 is already out in the UK, but no carriers are showing it on their websites... nor places like Carphone Warehouse...
In reality, what this shows is that Symbian is really on its last legs now, whether it's good or not, no developers are going to bother with new apps, and it makes the 808 pretty much dead on arrival...
And whether or not people like it, that's the truth. It has 1 or 2 years left if at all...
It's a real shame they didn't stick with Meego, I think it would have been an Android beater.. but as it stands, it's going to be playing catch-up for a very, very long time... let's see what fortunes the Lumia Pureview give Nokia next year... but again, that relies on Microsoft pulling their fingers out and creating an OS that doesn't feeling like it was created in 2005... with the functionality to match...
belle fp1 is already running on 701, 700 and 603 since last month...
then why we are discussing about it...???
NMo9, 25 May 2012I don't think Belle FP1\FP2 is the Carla\Donna update we all were waiting for. They may be str... moreLet's call Nokia's and Accenture's bluff. Suppose we say that Belle FP1 = Carla, so now they have to product Belle FP2 = Donna = dual core support.
Your move, Nokia and Accenture. :-p
what about the html5, and bug reports of symbian carla what they were fake or all of it was canceled because Elop wants to kill nokia, so that microsoft could buy them cheap
Who cares about Nokia now anyways...with so many good phones from Samsung, Sony, HTC , Apple ?
Gsmarena, this is not new news!
700 and 701 has already been updated, 808 already has belle FP1. We know N8, C7 and this generation won't get the full update but a short version of it. But this is not called Carla.
NMo9, 25 May 2012I don't think Belle FP1\FP2 is the Carla\Donna update we all were waiting for. They may be str... moreNokia is ashamed to call bug-fixing/some minor ui tweaking for a compete new release. And forget dual-cores. 808 is the last one with Symbian onboard. WP is all you will get from Nokia.
I don't think Belle FP1\FP2 is the Carla\Donna update we all were waiting for. They may be stripped-down versions of it..
If Carla is really Belle FP1, will FP2(which then should be Donna) support dual-cores??
M99, 25 May 2012I'm getting confused here. Belle FP1 is already out for 603, 700, and 701 since last month. if... moreCarla was ment more like a new iteration. FP1 as we know it today is just some bug-fixes + removed functionality (poor e-mail client, crimped power-button-menu, removed week-view from calender, crimped aspect ration in video player)
I'm getting confused here. Belle FP1 is already out for 603, 700, and 701 since last month. if FP1 is really Carla then it is truely not cancelled.
Khalid Abdu, 25 May 2012who caresThan what are you doing here if you not care ! We care understan you better understan _ andriod always copied ios windows phone and symbian _ now the will copy some option from hp webos
That itilian guy who said that "symbian Carla" is cancelled is absoluteley an 'Idiot" he misleaded So many PPL bcuz of his Pea-sized Brain!
BTW, FP1 is available for the current Belle devices since last month
Khalid Abdu, 25 May 2012who caresyou care reading the news and commenting ;)
My Nokia 700 runs 112.010.1404
release: Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1.
It looks more like "Bug_Fixing" not like new OS iteration. Actually it looks more like functionality_reducing rather than any improvement at all.
Not every bug-fixing release deserves a name!
Umm, the FP1 update for existing devices is already rolling out for some weeks.
