    For all the Symbian^3 users, the Symbian Belle update is now available. I am installing now on my Nokia N8.

    I am ok with it, they did nice job with it. I am concerned about updating my wife's N8. It takes her about 6 months to become familiar and comfortable with the OS of a smartphone, and by then I am sure we'll have a couple of Lumia 900's. :D

    The small picky things I don't like are:

    The new email widget takes up 3 spaces on the screen, but that can be resolved by using the email shortcut icon

    The new WiFi widget is really different, and it turns blue when it's connected. I liked the old WiFi widget better

    I really don't like, need or want the big on digital clock on the main screen, since the time is on the upper right hand corner of the main screen, but I am sure you can remove it. The default wallpaper is hideous, but I already changed that.

    I lost a lot of applications, but I am sure it's because they weren't Belle compliant. That's no big deal, I can re-download them.

    A little bit more than that.

    I guess I am more impressed with it than not impressed with it. It a lot better than the stock Symbian^3 or Symbian Anna.

    I was a Palm guy for many years, so all I am really familiar with is Palm and Windows phones. I still like Mango the best, and I am really excited about the new Nokia phones coming out. I think Nokia made the right decision adding Windows.

    When I updated my wife's iphone to iOS 5 I updated facebook too, since she never updates her apps. She was mad at me because she thought updating the software on the phone had changed the way facebook looked. Sometimes I can't win for losing, lol.

    Absolutely palandri. :P

    How's your Belle of Symbianness doing, still OK, no buggettes ?

    My friend was asking if he could get it on his Nokia C5 but I think that's too old for it.

    I think it was the C5 he said anyway. :dry

    It's all good for me. There are a few minor bugs, but nothing that bothers me: How to: overcome or work around some common Belle update issues With my wife's N8, I made it as painless for her as possible, by adding shortcuts on one of the screens

    There was a thread a couple days ago about which OS would you chose if Microsoft ditched Windows Phone. At first I choose iOS but thinking about it, I'd probably pick Belle. It customizable like Android but without the added clunkiness. It also receives timely updates like iOS only without the added patent suing ******-baggery. :D

    Patent suing douch-baggery, I like that, adding it to my list now F8D. :D

    You haven't copyrighted it have you ?

    I'm not wishing to participate in any of that copyright suing ******-baggery you hear about. :lol:

    I have no interest in the 801. I actually prefer the one piece aluminum body of my N8, Now a Lumia 900 with a 12MP camera is different story. I'd buy that on the release date.

    Just got a social update on Belle. It's a nice update, but the widget takes up two slots on your screen, so it's a little bit big, but it's a nice update.
