Official: Nokia Belle coming on 8th February 2012 (to Vietnam). #Symbian

| January 29, 2012 | 57 Replies

Now I’m not sure about everywhere else, Nokia most likely will try to get a close to a global release as they can but at least there is a confirmed date somewhere.

Mark this in your diaries.

8th February 2012.

That’s on time based on the official Nokia Belle update dates (though not if we remember the Q4 2011 expectations). Apparently there was a critical bug that meant that those Anna, S^3 handsets could not be given the update. Belle seems to be fine on the original Belle units but of course, their hardware is slightly different and geared towards Belle.

These official dates can be seen from Nokia Vietnam. I’ve checked a few Nokia sites in other countries but can’t find a similar page.

You can see this belle information here:

Thanks to @Nokianesia for the tip!

  2. stylinred says:

    id like to get the HK version of belle so that i can have chinese support as well as english

  3. Adam says:

    Why isn’t the c7 not mentioned in the bottom? Its shown in the pic but not mentioned on the bottom???

  4. Stound says:

    haha I its shocking how belle runs on my n8 smoothly :) a truly different experience from anna (I have a leaked version)

  5. Gerii says:

    No love for the Nokia 500?

  6. SequeStyle says:

    the beta belle is already stable, is there anything new in the final belle? does anyone know?

  7. misterstu says:

    Great story Jay – many thanks

  8. Ashish says:

    the guide on nokia Vietnam site makes it clear that belle will not be available over the air and the phone can be updated only using nokia suite.

    • jill says:

      that was true from the beginning ..

      as per what i have read .. it will completely flash ur phone .. u can restore back the data u have backed up .. certain applications will not work etc etc

  9. nyapinkid says:

    maybe in official belle we will get microsoft office that promised before

  10. amoshydra says:

    But those microsoft office isn’t even available in the new Belle device e.g. Nokia 701 yet…

  11. Michael Faro-Tusino says:

    I have seen it stated several times Belle is only via NSU as such a large update would cause issues like Anna did to S^3.

    Also, although no release date, Nokia Sites such as the Australian and New Zealand one, have the user manuals for N8 with Belle. Yet no notification of when Belle is coming.

  12. alben says:

    yes, Symbian Belle will be officially released this February 8. Isn’t exciting for the Symbian 3 loyalists? Sure. Take a look at here>

  14. kaxa says:

    Can’t wait…expectation greatly prolonged

  15. Patata says:

    hope there will be a few more “belle widgets” and apps with new widgets after belle gets availible for more devices.

  16. Linh says:

    Hope its build number is bigger than 609, the 609 build works badly with GPS, it takes too long or cannot determine location.

    • incognito says:

      Try using instead of for the location server – in many areas Google works much faster…

  17. Sammy says:

    Can’t wait… I have Anna right now and it’s so horrible with response time. I really hope Belle improves it… considering getting rid of my E7. Just can’t take it anymore :-(.

  18. BellGo says:

    I am not sure if should get my hopes up, but this seems official enough.. So, looking forward to it! =)

  19. Ali Abdulla says:

    I don’t think there was any critical bug in Belle.

    my guess would be, Nokia suite is just too buggy for a mass world wide update. I was NEVER able to update via ovi suite, using 3 different computers and for my past three Nokias… and I can’t imagine that Nokia suite is stable enough… thanks God for Phoenix.

  20. freen8apps says:

    Nokia vietnam Belle page removed..NOKIA is really cheating us..

  21. sanura says:

    What about the Nokia 500? Earlier it was mentioned that it will go to Nokia Belle.

  22. Ashis Mishra says:

    nokia belle confirmed on february 7th.just now recieved a call from the custumer care and got the 110% confirm news that belle launching on 7th of feb.wheepee and no OTA update, nokia suite process have to be followed. 100000000000000000% sure that on 7th of feb call guys nokia custumer care if u dont belive me.

  23. Kuttan Pandey says:

    Yes guys, even i called nokia customer care and they told that belle will be available for current anna users from 7 February. There will be no OTA , you need nokia PC suite to update to belle.

  24. Debby Javier says:

    I hope there will be no bug on Belle. I’ve waited for it for so long.

  25. For the reason that the admin of this site is working, no uncertainty very quickly
    it will be renowned, due to its feature contents.
