Latest software release for Nokia N8 is Nokia Belle (111.030.0609)

I have an unlocked N8-00 running Belle. The Latest software release for Nokia N8 is Nokia Belle (111.030.0609), howevermy phone and Nokia Suite reports that I am up-to-date. I have ATT, however they did not provide me the phone. I should not be restricted by the service provider in this case...Can I download Nokia Belle (111.030.0609) directly from Nokia?

@hp2009

I've not been able to find that information anywhere on the web. Can you please provide a link to Nokia's official announcement about Symbian going into maintenance mode and their plans to support Symbian until 2016? Thanks!

Thanks! I was finally able to find it on Nokia's Q4 2011 interim report which, by the way, also reports on the outsourcing of Symbian software development and support activities to Accenture through 2016, as well as the transfer of approximately 2,300 Nokia employees to Accenture.

 

This report, however, doesn't mention any market research conducted on behalf of Nokia about the domino effect that an announcement like this has on the market. I am talking about the confirmed decision of independent software development companies to immediately drop Symbian as a target platform for their apps in anticipation of Symbian's demise.

 

It will be interesting to watch what happens to the last Symbian devices released by Nokia this year, like the 808 Pureview.

@GEN82012, this is probably the wrong thread for enquiring on updates but...

No you can't download directly from Nokia if the update hasn't been released for your product code.

Updates are by Product Code, type *#0000# on the Call screen. For example mine is 059C7R0.

These codes are country and operator specific.

Be aware there is a difference between a "Vanilla" handset brought directly from Nokia and an "Unlocked" one.

If a carrier "Unlocks" the handset it means you can use it on other networks but the Product Code will remain the original one and can't be changed.

If the phone has been repaired at some stage it may have a non standard board in it as well and I think those can only be updated at Nokia Care.

If you take the phone to Nokia Care with proof that it is legally unlocked they may be willing to load the local "Vanilla" variant for you.

Note; mine has recently updated to  111.040.1511.

N95 (RM159) V31.0.017, N8 (RM596) Belle 111.040.1511

Maintenence mode means updates to fix show-stopping bugs and to accommodate changes made to online services. An example of a show-stopping bug is the 3G reception making the phone reset on the 808 or timezone updates. An example of the latter is removing client support for Nokia Messaging as Nokia Messaging for Symbian 3 devices is being dropped. I wouldn't really expect much more. All this is wild conjecture of course.

The latest version is 111.040.1511 Symbion belle refresh. I think that is the end of symbion era, only minor update like colorzit,microsoft application etc will be there. The big question is will N8 get windows OS? processor of N8 will not be able to do so, then what next? I do not know. Somebody more in this field can give detail feasibility of windows OS on N8.
