OS update for Nokia C6-00

Is Nokia planning to release an OS update for C6-00, so that it atleast comes closer to symbian^3? Does Nokia really takes the feedbacks seriously? Please do this... everyone who has C6-00 wants an udate to it's OS!!!!!

C6-01 has symbian^3, and it supports HD and 3D gaming; why not Nokia C6-00 then?????

 

Please Nokia, do something!!!!!

Re: OS update for Nokia C6-00

THE NOKIA c6-00 is S60 v5
THE NOKIA c6-01 is S^3
this is why the C6 wont have the C6-01 features nor will it
check with nokia software updater for updates for your phone

If  i have helped at all a click on the white star below would be nice thanks.

Re: OS update for Nokia C6-00

I also know abt the OS's of these two handsets Jimmy. I think I have clealry mentioned in my post, "why doesn't Nokia releases an OS update for C6-00? Why there is so much diff bt C6-00 and C6-01? Shouldn't Nokia have released C6-00 with symbian^3 instead of releasing another similar handset differing just by the figure '01'? Bec of the OS diff, 3D acceleration is not supported by C6-00! It is really disheartnening for me and all those who have spent money on C6-00! What was the need to do this? Really, it was not expected and it should not be done. It is like, Nokia has released N8 on sunday with all amazing features and suddenly it announces the release of N8-01 having some other mighty OS making N8-01 more powerful than N8! What the customers having N8 would feel like?????"

 

My only request to Nokia is that, "kindly release an OS update for C6-00, whether it is symbian^3 or not, but atleast enhance and include some new features in C6-00! Please Nokia, its a request of a 'consistent, noble and regular Nokia user!!!!!"

Re: OS update for Nokia C6-00

S3 reuires hardware accelerationwhich the C6-00 cannot provide

C6-00 chip and memory are also not up to running S3,

 

Trying to get a C6 running S3 would be like me digging out my old 388 and expecting it to run windows 7

 

C6-00 is esentialy running an OS at the end of it's lifespan and whilst there may be further upgrades to improve performance and perhaps bring an S3 look and some features to the UI it's never going to come close to the performance of a 6-01

Re: OS update for Nokia C6-00

Yes, anyone with a little bit of knowledge on mobile phone OS would no that there is no way C6-00 are capable of running Symbian^3.

However, I do hope that Nokia unify the Symbian^1 experience on recent phone pretty much like what they did on Symbian^3 phone. When there is update, all of the phone with the same OS will receive the same update. I would hope that all recent Nokia Symbian^1 phone such as the N97 brothers, 5230, 5530 and for sure the C6-00 would receive update that make it pretty much the same as the latest Nokia C5-03 which has a rather good single tap UI and pretty much everything polish.

That seems to be very plausible and it's all down to either Nokia would spend their resource on old user.

Re: OS update for Nokia C6-00

That's what I am saying! I know it can't uphold symbian^3 OS, what I want to say is that. "Nokia should release an upgrade which could atleast give it a symbian^3 look and some new features"

And it should be done, Nokia can't behave hastily with a lovely mobile like C6-00!!!!! Please Nokia do have a look at this! I also request the coordinators and contributors to have a look at this issue! Please!:smileysad:

 

Again I repeat and clarify: "I know C6-00 can't uphold symbian^3 OS bec of its hardware structure but what I want to say is that, Nokia should release an upgrade which could atleast give it a symbian^3 look and some new features"

@ Kunal_Swami
you are just going to have to be patient like everybody else who waits for updates thats the way it is and will always be nokia cant jump ship just to suit you maybe you might be better of contacting nokia directly where you will get the same response
http://europe.nokia.com/support/contact-us

updates are released when ready updates vary by region and product code if your device is branded you may have to wait longer


so understand please be patient and WAIT
