Nokia Belle FP2 Just Hit My 808

Posted on 02 October 2012, Last updated on 02 October 2012 by

It’s just become available on my Nokia 808 (A generic UK version) and despite a few download restarts due to the damn WiFi dropping out (one of the known issues I’ll be checking for) it’s installed and updated without issue.

Go check your 808 for updates now (settings –> phone –> phone management –> device manager –> (menu) check for updates.

On top of the download there’s a set of four new apps.

I’m on the lookout for the new browser (better HTMLS support, HTML5 apps) gallery updates to allow multiple select and common gallery app across system, ‘New Social’ apps, the WiFi issue fix and a better keyboard.  But there’s also a new lock screen, new clocks and other widgets,

Apps are installing now…takes a good 15 minutes with one reboot required to get the final app installed.

I’ll get a video up for you ASAP.

Update: My WiFi issue isn’t fixed. It drops out constantly (for example, 1 second into streaming a YouTube video.) so i’ve got a phone here that effectively doesn’t connect to the internet unless I enable my data plan (which I usually don’t do unless i’m away form home.)

Screen unlock: OK, it’s new. A swipe instead of a press.

Gallery: Now seems consistent across the OS although 1) No multiple select for sharing 2) OS ‘social’ is different to the camera and gallery ‘social’ and remains disjointed. Image information is welcome. Multiple select for ‘delete’ works.

New keyboard: Much improved

New Browser: Better HTML5 support. Seems faster (although we always tend to say that on upgrades!) and you can now save an HTML5 page as a desktop app link.

NokiaPoweruser have a changelog which probably doesn’t cover everything.
