Symbian Belle Update Made Available to Multiple Nokia Handsets

Nokia, it seems, has no intentions whatsoever to ditch its home-grown Symbian OS platform in favour of its new crush - Windows Phone OS. And, just to make the point loud and clear, the Finnish mobile giant has dished out the latest version of the Symbian OS - "Belle" to as many as seven handsets.

Belle, which happens to be the successor of Symbian Anna, has been made available by the company for the owners of Nokia E6, E7, N8, C6-01, X7, C7 as well as Oro handsets. Nokia 500 users will have to wait for a few more weeks before they can get their hands onto the latest OS.

Apparently, the Belle update seems to be the last iteration of Symbian - the OS that once, used to rule the global smartphone arena before finally being thrown out of the scene (well, almost!) by the relatively newer players such as Android and the iOS.

Nokia Belle brings along with it a bunch of new and improved features - for example it provides users with half a dozen of home screens for all their favourite services and applications.

The Belle update also includes HD video recording capabilities and improved web browser that would allow users to view web videos.
