The release of firmware in any country is governed by lots of different things. Things such as Government regulation, carriers agreeing to it, world trade situations. the regionlisation of the firmware.
Just because firmware is available in one country does not mean that it is or will be available in all countries. firmware is designed initially as like a general piece of software, it is then sent to Nokia regional office, who have to change the code to suit the local telecommunication laws, and to suit the local carriers requests. Once this is completed and tested by Nokia, its then sent to the carriers who will recheck the firmware. The carrier may ask for more changes, to which nokia will have to make, then retest and then send back to the carrier. It the carrier then agrees its scheduled for release shortly after. If however the carrier simply says NO they wont allow it at all, Then Nokia are not allowed to release it, no matter what. Even though Nokia has spent all that time design and changing the code to suit, the acrrier can say no and no one will get it.
Its a big job, one that can take months of negotiation, with the carriers. not to mention the time to make the code suit the local requirements, in the first place. Also otherissue can come up from time to time, where due to global laws or individual country laws, companies are banned from trading or working with certain other countries. These are usually political issue causing these sort of things to come up.
That phone you are mentioned also look rather low spec considering some phones that nokia have today, and worst of all it runs andriod, the worst most phone software on the market for hackers.
See if you are less or more happy with Privacy invasion and virus' respectively ;-)
Remember Nokia has released 3 major updates in ONE year for the N8.
How many have Apple / Andriod release in a YEAR for their one or 2 phones?
Also FYI - Nokia don't cause delays after official release.. its the Telcos.. Go chase them for your updates.. Chances are they have not passed the realease.
Please get your fact straight first thats all.
NOTE that I am not promoting Nokia either, just stating facts thats all.
Hope you take this in the right spirit.. :-)
Hi satisfied and dissatisfied Nokia owners,
If it is really true in a technical sense of reasoning that carriers are the bottleneck of the roll out of any updates, how is it possible that at the same time Nokia is selling and delivering phones with that same update pre-installed? This happened in the "Anna period" and is going to happen in the "Belle period". I had the Anna update on my N8 long before the product code of my N8 was declared ready for update and nevertheless that situation, I could use my phone without meting any problems. The cooperation of carriers is needed indeed, however, it goes too far that the date of the release of an update is more or less ruled by the slowest carrier in a certain country. Nokia has to maintain a strong relationship with carriers, because many phones are sold by those carriers. Nokia has made a choice in the past, when the competition on the phone market was not so heavy as now a day. I am not amazed that Nokia never gives an indication for the time when an update will be released. Nokia has simply not the power and the independence to do so under the actual circumstances. Hang in there friends.

I made clear that Nokia is not entirely free in releasing updates on its own. Of course Nokia can release every update for every product code within the capacity of the servers of Nokia. The bottleneck I described, is not a technical matter, but a matter of policy. I'm convinced that between Nokia and carriers commitments have been made and not on a central level, but on the level of countries and regions. These commitments limit the independence of Nokia and protect the interests of local carriers. Carriers don't want to be blamed for the delay, because that can end up in losing customers. Unbranded and/or simlock free phones are not treated differently. Their product codes will not receive the update prior to branded phones. Why? I suspect that this is also a part of the deal between Nokia and carriers. You are right Sarveshwar in stating that Nokia is slow in releasing updates worldwide. I only try to explain the reason for the delay. I'm not defending the policy of Nokia and the choices Nokia made and, obviously, still makes. Have a nice day.
