SYM­BIAN BELLE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

Comes from: Nokia

What’s new: Sym­bian Anna is go­ing to yield place to Belle, which is much eas­ier to

use. What used to be stan­dard box icons on the home­screen have been en­riched with dif­fer-

ently sized wid­gets for per­son­al­is­ing the screens. The lim­ited 3-win­dow home­screen has been

ex­tended to six. A no­ti­fi­ca­tion bar ap­pears when swip­ing from top to bot­tom. This in­cludes ba­sic

set­tings along with pend­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tions. Life has been added to the locked home­screen as

well. With NFC all set to be­come the next big thing in phones, Nokia has ex­tended sup­port

by al­low­ing the user to share im­ages, con­nect to an ac­ces­sory and per­haps do a bit

of e-buy­ing with a sim­ple tap of the phone.

Hand­sets: Nokia 700 and 701. (N8, E7, C6-01, E6 and

X7 are upgrad­able).
