Nokia posts 'major' Sym... er... smartphone OS update

Belle, end of Symbian?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Nokia may be obsessed with Microsoft's Windows Phone OS, but that hasn't stopped it rolling out the latest version of its other OS, Belle, to a seven handsets.

Step forward owners of Nokia N8, E7, E6, X7, C6-01, C7 and Oro phones, you can now download Symbian - no, don't mention the 'S' word... - Nokia Belle for your gadget.

If you own a Nokia 500, the Finnish phone giant said, you'll have to wait a few more weeks for the upgrade.

Is Belle the last of its kind? It seems that way, especially now that Nokia has canned all but one future Symbian smartphones.

Nokia Belle delivers new personalisation options than before, including six home screens for all your favourite apps and services. Larger live widgets can be dropped there too.

Nokia Belle adds HD video recording at 30fps and a "visually improved" browser which enables the viewing of web videos. The menus have been simplified and a notifications bar has been added to make accessing key settings or features fast, Nokia said.

The Nokia Belle update requires your phone to be hooked up to a PC running Nokia Suite 3.3 or later. ®
