Nokia delays Symbian Belle until next year
Belle is the latest version of the Symbian OS, bringing lots of improvements. That's why we have been happy to that Nokia has announced it will update a handful of pre-existing phones with it. Nokia's official Symbian Belle page has the update listed as "coming soon" to a handful of devices - the X7, E7, N8, E6, and Nokia 500. Previous information pointed to a 2011 release, however, a new tweet from Nokia UK has said that the update has been pushed back to "early next year".

Symbian Belle (aka Symbian 10) is looking to put Symbian on par with other modern smartphone platforms by adding features that we've seen elsewhere. This includes: a pull-down taskbar/notification tray, live widgets in a variety of sizes, sharing via NFC, an upgraded web browser and an increased number of homescreens. To see more details about it, please check out our Nokia 701 Review.

No word on exactly when next year we should expect the update to start rolling out, but we'll let you know when we find out.
