Symbian Belle is the latest update after Symbian Anna! Nokia announced that Belle will be the OS of four new smartphones, the Nokia 600, Nokia 603, Nokia 700, and Nokia 701. They also announced that Belle would be coming to all existing Symbian^3 devices in the last quarter of this year, for example: Nokia N8, E7, C7, C6-01, X7, E6 and 500.
Symbian Belle adds to the Anna improvements with a pull-down status/notification bar, deeper near field communication (NFC) integration, free-form re-sizable homescreen widgets, and six homescreens instead of the previous three.
- Free-form, differently-sized, live widgets
- More homescreens
- Improved status bar
- Modernised navigation
- New apps (I played Angry Birds without a hitch!)
- Informative lock screen
- NFC devices (share pictures, connect with accessories, & check-in – with just a tap)
- Visual multitasking
