Nokia Astound for T-Mobile will not get updated to Belle
Once upon a time, there was a cute Symbian smartphone known as the Nokia C7. It was announced back in September of 2010, and by April of 2011, it was released in the U.S. bearing the Nokia Astound moniker, courtesy of T-Mobile.

Now, as we reported yesterday, the Nokia Belle update started rolling out to select Symbian devices bringing lots of goodies both on the outside and the inside of the platform. And since the Nokia C7 is on the list of smartphones that are getting it, one would assume that the Nokia Astound would be treated to an update too as it is practically the same device. But to the misfortune of all Nokia Astound owners, the Nokia Belle update is not meant to meet the humble Astound, as it was announced via the Twitter feed for Nokia US.

Perhaps it is time to move on and pick a new handset? If you are happy with being a T-Mobile subscriber, the T-Mobile Valentine's Day sale might be a great opportunity to upgrade. All of the carrier's phones, top of the line devices included, will be priced at zero, so feel free to stop by a retail store or visit the T-Mobile web page this Saturday.
