Video: 6 homescreens on Belle

| September 6, 2011 | 22 Replies

 

Earlier today (previous post), a more recent version of the Leaked Belle firmware became available. Here’s a demo of 6 homescreens from Belle by Vlado/ which I think is now standard for Belle?

Some folks have mentioned that there’s even versions that will allow 100-1000 homescreens! That’s crazy. Haha. I think 10 at most is enough :p But nice to see the option is there if you want more (I am happy with about 4. ). I think with a simple enough ‘hack’, even old Symbian^3 could have more homescreens than standard.

Reports so far on twitter (e.g. from @bharadc23) says N8 is handling 6 homescreens fine.

I think this is reminding me of my homescreen use on Maemo 5. I had no need of the menu of apps upon apps stuck in grids. I can have them placed where I want, and access them from particular homescreens I remember. e;g; homescreen for work stuff, for games. It’s a little more than folders as you could even have relevant widgets (e.g. email widget next to note app and voice recorder shortcut).

I can’t wait for Official Belle. Like GSM Arena said yesterday, ““Maybe if it had come out earlier, it would have helped Symbian cling to its top spot in smartphone platforms””. Imagine if we got Belle last year? 😮
