Nokia Belle FP2 update reportedly rolling out. Probable changelog as reported by 808 PureView owners.

We just reported how Belle FP2 firmware was seen at NaviFirm and one of the device owners have flashed his device and posted some screenshots and changes he could see on his 808 PureView.

Now what seems like reports coming from many sources that Nokia Belle Fp2 software update has already started rolling out to devices and many 808 PureView owners have received it via Nokia Suite. Check the below forum links below where users are discussing availability for their devices. Tough luck though for my 808 PureView !!

    Can someone tell me how I can change back to belle from FP2 on my nokia 701? I really do not like the new predictive input using the alphanumeric keyboard. I’ve tried to get use to it but I really don’t like it. Also, I usually use facebook via the web browser not the FB social app because the app isn’t very user friendly. However, since the s/w update I’m unable to view FB on the browser. help me 🙁

    • Surprising to hear that you are not seeing FB on browser!! Anyways Facinate is a great Facebook application and it is free as well.

  • athresh

    Does skype work well with 808 can we do video chats please let me know,I checkd out a demo phne,it was lagging bit,menu button on the screen not that responsive ,when is fp2 rolling out ?? Very much planning to buy in the coming week

  • 7atem

    Can 3rd party use navigation bar to display notifications at least for Facebook and email like in android ?

    • Facinate a facebook client already uses push notifications.

      • 7atem

        But it is annoying to have the notifications on the Homescreen like whatsapp ,facinate and nimbuzz ..I was hoping these applications can use notification bar in FP2 bec i heard that the bar has missing API so app cant use it

        • Someone with better knowledge of Belle Fp2 APIs can answer that!!

  • can somone tell me what the web browser is like with belle fp2? if its good ill get the nokia 808… even though im an australian

    • The web browser is definitely an improvement, html5 wise.. Now I can watch videos on motogp.com when previously I can’t.. Other factors like javascript & flash I can’t comment yet though.. Overall, a good improvement I’d say..

      • true the web browser is much improved.no need of any third party browsed like opera.

  • alright everything seems fine but could someone please tell me if there is alphanumeric support or has nokia removed it and totally replaced it with qwerty keypad

    • Read the changelog carefully. It has a improved Alphanumeric keypad with better prediction than before.

  • dnd

    is it true that the new keyboard support multitouch? I love this feature

    • Yup, as informed by some of the users 🙂
