RUMOUR: Symbian^3 devices may never see Carla/Donna update, to work on 1GHz processor only

13 Feb , 2012  

So MyNokiaBlog is reporting that a substantial rumour is doing the round that Nokia’s next expected update, the Nokia (Symbian) Carla and Donna update never arrive for the current set of Symbian^3 or Anna device which received Belle update which include Nokia N8, C6-01, E7, C7, X7 and E6 due to hardware limitations.

No-Carla-Donna-S-3-rumour
It is being said that Carla and Donna will run only on 1GHz processor or more.

So the current range of devices which have only a 680 MHz processor will never see Carla and Donna and Belle update that they recently received would eventually be the last thing that users of the above mentioned devices ever see. This rumour comes to light after dsmobile who is a known insider related to Nokia/Symbian posted it over in the comments related to a query of Belle bugs reporting. So this is indeed heart breaking to know, even if it’s just a rumour.
No-Carla-Donna-S-3-rumour-1
But the current Symbian Belle devices which launched with a 1GHz processor will indeed be able to hold the Carla and Donna onboard them. So if you own a Nokia 700,701 or 603 then you are indeed the lucky ones out there.

Dsmobile also went on to throw a little light over the N8 successor that we have been hearing a lately and said that it will have the same 3.9 inch screen as that of the N9 and it’ll be curved at the sides. Only disappoint in this is that the screen resolution will remain same as that of the current Symbian devices.
