I was wondering why I have 250 emails to read this morning. Lots of hubbub again over Symbian^3 firmwares.

You guys have been emailing us that Symbian Anna is available where you are (I don’t have it yet, NSU/OTA 🙁 )

Have you updated already?

From Nok Conv – Acknowledgement of Belle – ‘more to come’ not more countries – that’s already mentioned in other countries coming in next three weeks.

Where and when?
