Faster and smoother browsing
The responsive touch screen and increased processing power of the new generation of Nokia smartphones all adds up to smoother web browsing, faster downloads, and easy multi-tasking.
Our new Nokia Belle phones offer fast internet connection and increased browsing speeds. That means you can keep on top of what’s going on in your world and stay updated with all the latest news from your network of friends and family.
Share & pair with NFC
One of the exciting features that make our new Nokia Belle phones really come into their own is their NFC capability.
Whether it’s sharing photos, videos and music, pairing with other NFC enabled smartphones, or progressing to new levels in Angry Birds – you can do it all in just a tap. NFC tags also allow you to easily access a whole world of exciting content, including film trailers, songs, microsites, maps, money-off vouchers and much more.
Note: The Nokia Belle update will not provide NFC to devices that do not support this feature.
Six Home screens
Stay on top of everything, and personalise your Home screens to express yourself.
Tailor your live feeds to show what is most important to you and see the very latest updates from your social networks at a glance. Six Home screens give you many more opportunities to tailor all the different areas of your life, whether it’s timeout or your work life.
Note: Nokia Belle update for the Nokia 500 provides only 4 Home screens.
Live widgets in five different sizes
Your favourite contacts, email, music player, your clock or your calendar - whatever you reach for most you can keep handy across six Home screens.
And not only are the widgets more handy, they have also been redesigned and now come in five different sizes, rearranged to create a completely customisable apps set. And new ‘Toggle’ widgets now make tasks like switching on Bluetooth and changing profiles even easier.
Note: Nokia 500 does not support the FM transmitter widget, and features Nokia Maps SR6 instead of SR8. Nokia 500 also receives the Angry Birds app with the new update.
All your notifications are in one easy to find place – and it’s as simple as sliding down a single tab from any screen.
The new taskbar includes access to your settings, as well as notification of incoming messages, missed calls and everything else you need to keep an eye on. You can also manage your connectivity from your pull-down taskbar, turning your Bluetooth or wi-fi on and off.
