Nokia renames its flailing Symbian OS 'Nokia Belle'

Nokia's issue hit Symbian smartphone operating system is to be renamed with the negative connotations of the 'Symbian' moniker to be replaced

 

Having failed to wow smartphone users with its flailing Symbian operating system Nokia has enforced a key change on the unappealing software re-branding it Nokia Belle.

Previously entitled Symbian Belle, Nokia looks set to drop the ‘Symbian’ moniker in the coming weeks with the next update to see the struggling OS become Nokia Belle whilst added a bevy of new features in attempt to regain a loyal following.

Ensuring the renaming of its budget OS remains a relatively low key affair in a recent official release simply stating “The all new Nokia Belle (previously Symbian Belle) user interface will soon be available for download to some existing smartphones.”

Nokia Belle Features

Set to be compatible with a host of existing handsets including the Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia C7 and the Nokia X7, the software patch adds additional homescreens to handsets whilst improving the functionality of homescreen widgets.
