Belle to roll out to EVERYONE at about the same time

| December 22, 2011 | 32 Replies

Yesterday we got wind finally of some definite official dates for Belle on the pre Belle devices.

That’s February 2012. Due to the updates being complex, in several countries, in various languages, in various networks, it takes time to roll out each variant. That’s why Anna is still not on all devices (it’s on most and was in the first month right?).

Nokia twitter’s tweets suggests that this staggered (long staggered) updates may not be as stretched out as Anna.

Apparently, Nokia plans “to roll it out to everyone at about the same time” possibly in the frame at least of 2 weeks to a month, no?

Now some might find it odd that Nokia can ship N8 with Belle but not get it out to current devices. Well, consider it was the same situation with Anna N8s. Nokia has to picture in the actual update process, as opposed to loading Belle fresh themselves.

Many of you I’ve read have already put leaked belle on your devices as you couldn’t wait for the official ones on the N8 (and now other devices). I’ve read how it’s such an improvement for you guys, you just can’t even look at Anna anymore. I can’t wait to get official Belle for N8 too :D. That same change over Anna is what a lot of other users talk about when they refer back to even Maemo 5 or even other platforms that make the whole touch experience pleasant. It’s night and day right? Not something to be overlooked – user experience is key and usability possibly more so than the features makes up most of that.

Thanks bhavanishankar for the tip!
