Good news dear Nokia 500 users! It looks like the Nokia 500 WILL get the Nokia Belle Refresh update along with the Nokia N8, C7, C6-01, X7, E7 and probably E6 too.
The new update will bring lots of new widgets and usability features along with a slightly redesigned user interface which is more in line with the latest Qt UI. This means that the native Belle apps will be even harder to distinguish from the usual Qt apps. It also means that the user experience will be more consistent than with the current Belle OS.
I do hope that with this new update we’ll also see Belle themes applied to Qt apps too. But it might just be wishful thinking.
The update is expected to roll out soon, but I wouldn’t expect it until Q3 2012.
