Symbian Belle confirmed for “early next year”. No more Q4 2011

| December 8, 2011 | 81 Replies

Following the news that Belle might not be out as an update until February 2012 (for Thailand) Nokia UK tweeted yesterday that yup, it’s not coming in Q4 2011 at all.

This confirms what my other source had been suggesting but obviously could not fully disclose. Furthermore a couple of days ago we got forwarded this email (let’s say from anonymous) of an email exchange with “Stephen Elop” or who ever looks after that account – I’m doubtful he has the time to answer all of these user emails.

Anyway he said:

Hello there,

There was not a specific date promise that I am aware of, but my
understanding is that it will be during the first quarter of next year
that it is available.

Thanks,

Stephen

The Q4 date was not ‘officially’ mentioned. It was just during the launch event in that chat box thing where people can read what was being mentioned, and then later during a virtual Q&A with some Nokia managers. At least it wasn’t as relatively official as Anna.

Seems like a repeat of PR2.0. You guys have already discussed much in the last thread. Belle is already here in the 701, 700 and 603.

It’s just the case of getting that on the older generation hardware, on different variants (e.g. n8 specific for the camera), different languages, countries, networks etc, plus the possibility that it is just Symbian possibly getting more difficult to change without possibly accounting for all bugs.

There’s also still Carla and Donna to come – which look like they will at least look awesome on new Symbian devices.

Cheers David for the twitter tip!

      Oh come on, how does a late FW affect phone usage? Did your Nokia phone suddenly become worse than it was yesterday before this news? if it is, why donät you just install the leaked Belle on it, you know the same way Andoird and iOS need to be rooted to get the latest unrestricted FW into them in timely manner.

      Sometimes I think I’m way too old for the internet and especially commenting on anything because the discussions seem to be full of cry babies.
