Nokia has just released firmware V188.8.131.52 for NOKIA N97 and I have it running on my phone. It has also increased free C drive space to 256 MB. Phone has a very Symbian Anna like look, but not sure if this is real Symbian Anna or Symbian Belle. I am going with Symbian Belle. It also looks very similar to Nokia Evolve theme and HTC nonsense type clock on home page.
Thanks to Nokia for releasing such a wonderful software and supporting phone even after several years of service.
The update took more than a year… and was late, but is one of the best.
Keep it up Nokia
I am attaching a few screenshots of my N97 for your viewing pleasure
A Happy Nokia N97 User

Why do you tell us only rubbish? It isn't true that the phone Nokia N97 will get the Belle update.
This phone don't get the Belle update. Go away please, If you report only rubbish.
Unfortunately Symbian Belle will not be available for N97. Nokia models for which Belle will become available can be found at the end of this page. Latest software version for N97 is currently 22.0.110, and can be checked from this page.

how you can update your Nokia N97 with Belle OS ,,,
*removed private information, publishing this on a public forum is not advised.
Sadly this information is out of date . Neither page which Jampe references actually point to the correct pages any more. For example, the list of handsets which DO support Belle is no longer here http://europe.nokia.com/symbian-belle. And it is no longer possible to find what the latest software for your N97 is using this URL http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/n9
Anyone have current versions of either or both pages???
I am the user of N97. when I gone to ask to update my N97 to Symbian Belle the Nokia care cetre people informed that there is no such updates. Is it true that the N97 has symbian belle updates legally......???? Please anybody reply....

The N97 cannot run Belle, as it does not have the hardware to support it, especially the required graphics processor
Searching the web you may be able to find some unnoficial firmware variants for this device but nokia's policy is not to allow discussion of them here and nokia will take no responsibility for any consiquences of someone trying to install them onto their phone
