The new Nokia Belle (previously Symbian Belle) user interface will soon be available for download to some existing smartphones and begin shipping with a selection of smartphones that are already on the market.
The UI launched earlier this year with Nokia 701, Nokia 700 and Nokia 603 smartphones and it will come preinstalled in the new versions of Nokia N8, Nokia C7 and Nokia C6-01. The updated phones will arrive first in China and then around the world, according to Nokia.
For those already owning a Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia E6, Nokia X7, Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7, and Nokia Oro, the wait for Nokia Belle is almost over. Starting in February 2012, Nokia will release the all new Nokia Belle software update to its existing customers.
Nokia Belle brings more home screens, expanding the current three home screens users get with Nokia Anna to six. The home screen widgets have been improved and made more functional. Plus some of them, such as the email widget, give now much more information making reading emails much easier at a glance.
