Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1 update released

There have been some rumors on Twitter about the upcoming Belle Feature Pack 1 update for the latest generation of Symbian smartphones. Some said it should have been released at the end of March 2012. Obviously that didn't happen. But, today users of Nokia 603 and Nokia 701 reported they got the much awaited update over the air.

It looks like the Nokia 603 too got a bump in CPU speed, from 1GHz to 1.3GHz even though officially Nokia announced that only the Nokia 700 and Nokia 701 will. The update can be seen on NaviFirm as well, so those of you who didn't get the update from your phones, can flash it whenever you want. It seems that all variants for all countries are present in Navifirm. Operator versions may take a while to appear, but they surely will.

The update dubbed 112.010.1404 brings new widgets, an improved notification system that is quote "completely non intrusive", a new task manager preview, updated contextual menu layout and many more stability fixes.

Some trusted sources have mentioned that the Nokia N8, Nokia C6-01 and the Nokia C7 will also get the update in the coming months. I don't know what to make of this, as Nokia officially announced they will not get the FP1 update. The source however successfully predicted the exact date of the Belle update, and many other updates and device releases in the past. We'll just have to wait and see how it plays out.
