On August 24 2011, it was officially launched for three smartphones namely Nokia 603, Nokia 700 and Nokia 701.

Some of the changes were free form resizable home-screen widgets, replacing the previous 3 home-screens with 6 home-screens, pull-down notification bar similar to Android and few likely ones. So now with this update pretty much rolled out for all the supported phones, what exactly is new here and if you should go ahead and download the update, let’s find out.
The new range of Nokia Belle (renamed from Symbian Belle) gives users an eye-catchy design and high-performance experience with virtual keyboard and flexibility. The latest leap with Belle was made with the launch of Nokia PureView 808 (yes that’s the phone with 41megapixel camera).
