It looks like Nokia has just released a minor software update for Belle smartphones. Sadly, this is not the hotly anticipated Feature Pack 1, but a maintenance update, which brings a single new feature “Upload to SkyDrive.”
We’re not sure if the small update is now available for download to all Nokia Belle smartphones, but there’s a high chance that all those who own such a device will be able to grab the update at some point.
In order to download and install the 170kb update, simply check out “SW Update” section. If the update
does not show yet, we recommend users to check back later as the software might be pushed in stages, so it might take a while until it reaches all regions.
As we already mentioned earlier, this update enables automatic photo upload to SkyDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage service. The official changelog of the update reads:
“Upload and store your photos right when you take them with the all-new Upload to SkyDrive app. SkyDrive is your personal online storage space, accessible from anywhere – all you need is your Windows Live ID. If you don’t have one yet, go to www.live.com. Upload to SkyDrive users Wi-Fi to save on data costs, but you can use your data connection as well
In the same piece of news, Nokia is expected to deliver the Feature Pack 1 software update to Belle smartphones in the following months. For the time being, the only smartphone to be shipped with FP1 onboard is the Nokia 808 PureView.
It is also worth mentioning that the PureView 808 is rumored to be slated for another major update, Feature Pack 2. According to the latest hearsay
, this FP2 is expected to arrive on all Nokia 808 PureView devices by the end of the year. Stay tuned for more info on the matter.
