No Belle update for October 26 (+More anna variants)

| October 9, 2011 | 84 Replies


I was concerned about the source GSM Arena used that claimed October 26th would be the date for Symbian Belle Update.

Yvonne (Promotions Manager (Software Update Management) aka Skyee – who, odd fact, I think looks like Elizabeth Banks/Kate Beckinsale) says that whilst Belle update is coming, it won’t be the 26th October.

and I can already tell you that this one is just a rumour & definitely not happening.

As you all know we are NOT announcing any dates for our software updates in advance. Plus: At the moment our focus first is to get Symbian Anna out to our customers in the US, Canada & Australia. Symbian Belle IS coming – but definitely not on 26th October as some blogs are claiming.


It’s still coming, priority is to get Anna out first.  BTW, It seems that I missed one of Yvonnes mails on an update (or I’m having amnesia on posting it)

But here’s some more Anna variants:

- Israel –Partner IL

- Italy – 3IT

- LATNAM – Peru, Chile (except C7 Entel) & Venezuela

- Russia – MTS

Cheers @Hdrules for the tip!

    I’m in Australia and everything is agonizingly SLOW to appear here,especially from nokia who are just LIARS. I have installed the SPB3D front end/GUI from spb software and it’s really smooth. Looks Fantastic. SHITS on Nokia’s excuse for an effort and it’s only $14.00

    Most of the bugs have been ironed out as it’s a constantly evolving product,but for $14 who’s complaining??
    The N8 is an awesomwe phone but unfortunately,just like everything else,it wasn’t really ready for release with the CRAP software it has at present. I hear that Belle is not too bad but Anna…why bother?

    They can not release Belle the 26 October. It might draw attention away from their WP release during Nokia world. Then Nokia will delay some more to make people buy their WP phones. My guess is that Belle will be available for existing devices earliest February 2012..
