Starting on February 8, 2012, all users of Nokia devices with Symbian S^3 were able to install the operating system Nokia Belle.

Nokia Belle is the latest (and probably last) version of the Symbian OS. From Nokia’s press release we know that it comes with an improved user interface and some elements of ergonomics. It worth to be mentioned the home screen’s number from 3-6 (very close to Android which has 5 or 7 depending on phone model).

The good news is that the partnership with Microsoft is a benefit for  Nokia users without Windows Phone 7.5. Nokia announced that Belle OS users will have a few free tools such as Microsoft Lync and OneNote. Unfortunately, the update will not be available OTA (Over The Air). Those who want to make the transition from Symbian S^3 to Nokia Belle will have to have installed Nokia Suite 3.3 or later.

The models will receive this upgrade are: Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia E6, Nokia X7, Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7 and Nokia Oro. Also, it seems that Nokia 500 will be upgraded in the coming weeks.

Also, I found nothing about those who have already made ​​the upgrade of Symbian Anna. Most likely the upgrade can be made for both versions (it’s hard to believe that goes for Symbian S^3 and it’s not working for Symbian Anna), but it might be good to see a Nokia Care Center representative before the upgrade.
