Yvonne from Nokia Care has just announced the release of another stunning update from Nokia called the “Nokia Belle Refresh”. According to her:
great news! We just started to roll out our next update for Symbian called Nokia Belle Refresh for Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia C7, Nokia C6-01, Nokia X7 and Nokia Oro with version number 111.040.1511 (Nokia E6, version number 111.140.0058, will follow still this week, Nokia 500 updates will start to be launched within the next few weeks).
This update again brings new features to Symbian smartphones, for example:
– a new browser with HTML5 web apps support, a new set of homescreen widgets, and the previously released Microsoft Office Mobile App and Nokia Maps Suite 2.0 in one package.
– Nokia N8 will have some extra apps for imaging
The update will be rolled out in phases, starting with the vanilla versions (ie. basic software variants without any specific operator or country configuration). Country and operator variants will follow within the next weeks, depending on local and operator approvals.
pS: Just like after updating from Nokia Anna to Nokia Belle, some apps may not work due to compatibility issues. If you need more information on available apps, please contact your local Nokia Care support. Furthermore, you can also contact the respective App developer to enquire about the compatibility.

Update (30th January, 2012): Just like we thought, it was a typo error!
It seemed like a joke just yesterday how our tweets were geared towards the forthcoming update. We posted on how anxious we are on receiving our dear Nokia Belle on the fore runners of the Symbian^3 devices. As usual we were suggesting best practices that would make migration to this new wonderful platform a great one. Then, @nokia replied Ondrej Farkas’ tweet! Guess what they posted?
Could that be true or was it a typo? There was no further addition on this tweet and this leads us to one particular question. Is Nokia Belle really arriving next week? Next week will surely tell. Stay tuned to @NokiaTips, we will sure give you feedback on this topic once there is any.
In Addition, here is the link to the tweet: You could follow up the conversation and maybe ask and do let us know if there are any more updates.
