From a Nokia 808 Pureview launch event in Milan, guys over Nokialino have managed to get some information about the future of Symbian from Nokia marketing manager Mattia Fiorin.
Here is the transcript of info they got about Symbian from Nokia marketing manager Mattia Fiorin in a Q&A session at the event:
FP1 for N8 will be available soon, and will include, in particular, the updating of the browser to the new version 8.2 and Nokia Social.
The update will still be small compared to the official FP1, already available for the S^3 terminals that support it, adapted to the processor on the N8 (already exploited almost to the limit with the latest updates).
Probably there will be a minimal overclock the processor (as far as possible for ARM11 mounted on N8).
According Fiorin always, then, N8 will also FP2 (as Carla was shelved ).
Well, there is a good news and the bad one – Good for Nokia N8 users as they are getting lite version of Nokia FP1 andFP2 updates and bad news is the next version of Symbian update codenamed ‘Nokia Carla’ has been cancelled. Instead, Nokia will come out with Nokia Belle FP2.
