There was a time when Nokia had marked an implausible success in the smartphone market by its Symbian OS. But due to inferiority of the Symbian compare to other OSs, like Android and iOS, the company had denied to continue the shape up of its own baby and, rather, adopted to work on Microsoft’s Windows Phone Platform. The worldwide responses have compelled the company to continue with Symbian OS upgrades, resulted in the decision to go on but with a twist – addressing the OS with the name of “Belle” instead of Symbian.
Last week, Nokia has announced that its next operating system might come in February this year for selected number of devices. After the declaration, it has been concluded that the existence of the ‘name’ of Symbian won’t stay longer.
While accompanied with Microsoft for development of WP7, the company has streamlined numbers of its brands like Ovi Maps and Ovi stores with Nokia Maps and Nokia stores respectively. But dropping of the international well-known brand name “Symbian” in such a way is considerably more difficult. That’s why, Nokia’s blog is facing the ‘heaps of questions’ concerning the mutation of its OS Symbian. The company has persuaded to head of Symabian division to draft an explanation which would satisfactorily explain the mutation of Symbian to Belle.
The company has revealed in its blog, “We are still using Symbian Belle with some audiences like developers but now we also have the flexibility of using Nokia Belle when referring to our greatest and latest Symbian software update. And also Nokia Belle will make such a big difference in the user experience, and it is a major software update. We are progressing well in bringing Belle with a new look and feel to millions people across the markets at the same time, and are anxiously looking forward to delighting our consumers with Nokia Belle.”
Prior to the rollout of Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, the company marked a tremendous triumphant in different market by its own Symbian OS. The company’s Lumia lineup run on the WP7 platform and its success in the market has enforced it to work continuously on the same platform. But the encroachment of folks from different countries like India has inflicted the company to upgrades its OS. The company has truly consoled the masses that Nokia’s new updated Belle will definitely be proved as a real innovation and experienced OS.
The Nokia Belle updates are scheduled to roll out on the wide lineup of devices, including Nokia N8, E7, E6, 500, Oro and the C7. Some of the company’s products, like brand new N8, c6-01 and C7 phones, will be well equipped with the pre-installed Belle OS.
Presently, Nokia has gained an immense work experience with Microsoft windows Phone7, and the company might blend some ideas and functions in its upcoming updated Belle. Currently, Nokia seems bullish to work on its own OS in order to contend the big fishes like Apple and Google. Samsung’s decision to continue with its own OS “Bada” might be inspiring factor for Nokia to toil on its own OS.
