Nokia Belle might arrive prematurely to older devices, starting next week
Nokia hinted the Belle update for 2010 Symbian^3 devices to come February, about six months after the last Anna update was issued, and it might deliver even better on that promise.

Nokia Belle might arrive prematurely to older devices, starting next week
On its Twitter feed, the Finnish cell phone giant answered a question about the Nokia Belle update, saying that it will start rolling out to the first handsets as soon as next week.

Not bad at all as a timeframe, but seeing that the Anna update took 3-4 weeks until everyone got it, we will probably be going through the Belle process throughout the good part of February still. Not that a lot of people didn't install the unofficial Belle already, but being legit is a whole different feeling.

In any case, your trusted old N8, which 15 months after release still consistently scores at the top of camera comparisons, will finally also get a zippy and functional interface to round it off. For more info, you can read thorough Belle impressions, along with a video demo, in our review of the Nokia 701.

Nokia's been pretty solid in supporting the 5800XM long after it was retired. At least 16 firmware updates over its life-cycle. That being said, the N97 never really got that much support. I ended up going with a Custom Firmware (from PNHT) on my 5800XM because i wanted active homescreen widgets at that time. From what I saw, there are lots of very good, proven custom firmwares for the N97 too. Most get rid of things like Over The Air updates...which take precious C drive space and frankly...haven't been much historical use for the N97. These CFW's tend to be very tailored for performance, which is obviously something needed to assist the N97 vis a vis limited free RAM and free C dirve space. They do not typically boost CPU speeds either, so battery performance on the most popular CFW's are usually pretty good. Just my opinion.

Now its very difficult to trust nokia on update release dates.
They always delay new updates.
I hope this time Nokia finally bring this Belle update.
