Belle rolls out to the Nokia Devices starting today
Its been a year now after the Burning platform memo, and Nokia released second major update for its Symbian devices N8, E7, C7, E6, C6-01, Oro and 500. Its been rolled out simultaneously in most parts of the world. Connect your device to the PC and launch Nokia Suite to verify.
The update is at the version 111.030.0609 and will be available for all the devices except 500 at this moment and will be delayed by a few weeks.
I don’t have a Nokia device to try this out at the moment. I would update if I get additional information. Here are a quick bunch of videos from Nokia and others about Belle.

To update your phone, you’ll need to connect it to a PC via a USB cable and then start Nokia Suite (make sure you have the latest version 3.3.86 installed) – as Nokia Belle is a major upgrade, it is not possible to update over the air / OTA and the update also won’t be available in Nokia Software Updater. For a step-by-step guide, you can check the Nokia support pages and we have also done a video that tells you everything you need to know. Please note that the update to Nokia Belle removes your apps & music licenses, but you can re-download compatible apps easily via Nokia Store and your music licenses can be restored by playing the respective track. (We’ve done more detailed explanations in the FAQ pages, so check here for more infos.)
If you get a notification on your phone that the Nokia Belle update is available for you and it doesn’t show in Nokia Suite, please make sure that you have the latest Nokia Suite version 3.3.86 installed and then use the refresh button there.
