Nokia Carla, Mid-March for Nokia 603/700/701? And some info on Belle (February release)

Remember we asked you before what was Symbian C before it was more widely known to be Carla? It's still not official but it's pretty much on the same level or recognition as Belle before that was launched. The more eagle eyed of you had noticed that the name was there all along in the image ;p


ICEman tipped some info below such as Nokia Suite showing a banner for the Belle update, some app incompatibility and it will definitely be for february. I looked up ICEmans past comments and he seems to have been commenting precisely on certain information way before anything was official. Such as the exact screensize and form factor of the Nokia E6 in January before we even really knew anything about it. I’m not sure where they’re from but they’re very specific.

Most interesting is that the Nokia 603/700/701 will get Carla in mid March 2012. He suspects it may have Office/Skype. He notes that Belle v111.030.0609 was available for the newer models in December but the older ones for February.

About Symbian Belle update:
– only via Nokia Suite 3.3 (and later versions), will be displaying huge banner for Belle update
– no FOTA update
– device will be cleaned (e.g. you’ll lose all your settings, some apps), personal data (sms, contacts, etc.) will be backuped and restored, mass memory and memory card completely untouched
– “some apps won’t work with Belle” – guess no Skype release on the same day
– update possible both from Anna and S^3
– will be there in February
– SW version is 111.030.0609, same as leaked. Not sure if it will be renamed to “Nokia Belle”

On Nokia Carla, only info is that current-gen Symbian devices (603/700/701) will probably get it mid-march 2012. No word on N8/C7/.., could be at once, could be a month or two later (see december for 111.030.0609 for newer devices in December and only February for older ones). No changelog as of now, my feeling is that Carla will give us Skype & MS Office
