Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1 – Screenshot & Video Tour

In a surprising move, Nokia released the Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1 update for the Nokia 603, 700 & 701 Over the Air yesterday. If you own any of these 3 phones, I suggest you open the SW Update app on your phone & update to Feature Pack 1 right away!

Here are some of the major changes introduced with the Feature Pack 1 update :

  • Processor speed bumped from 1GHz to 1.3GHz
  • Dolby Mobile 3.0 with Dolby Headphones support
  • New Multitasking UI
  • New Widgets
  • New Web Browser
  • New Maps Suite

Apart from these major changes, there are various neat tweaks & modifications to Nokia Belle which take the user experience to another level! Here is a video tour by Cj introducing you to Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1, followed by a screenshot tour highlighting the various new tweaks & changes brought about by Feature Pack 1.

      Ajeet, event on my 701 Google is not available as an option for the browser based search. I will have to investigate more to confirm if Nokia has removed the Google search option or now.

    Thank you for the pictures and overview. I can’t wait to get a 808 Pureview with FP1 and future enhancements.

  • Malc

    Shame that this not available to the N8.

    • ccsvchost

      you can get a custom firmware which gives you all this…

      Quite a few of the FP1 elements will be coming to the N8 & other 1st gen S^3 devices in a Value pack sort of update for Belle Malc.

    Nice overview of the Nokia Belle FP1. Very detailed. But I would like to ask, how does the “1 new message” SMS pop-up appear now on Belle FP1? Before in Belle, it pop-ups on the center of the screen, just like the one on your screenshot (I assume it’s from What’sApp). Does it? now show on top of the screen as “toast notifications”, like the other pop-up notifications (e.g. USB Connected, Charging, No connections available, etc…)? It would be nice if it is that way, so that there are no more “in your face” pop-ups. Any reply would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Unfortunately, the SMS & Missed call alerts still show up like in Belle. I too wish they used the new Toast notifications.
