In addition to the ETA for the Symbian Belle update, Nokia announced on Wednesday that the operating system would be renamed to Nokia Belle. While I’m sure most of us didn’t flinch or even bother to ask why, Nokia has kindly took the time to write up a blog post that somewhat addresses the name change. Here’s what Nokia had to say:

“We are still using Symbian Belle with some audiences like developers but now we also have the flexibility of using Nokia Belle when referring to our greatest and latest Symbian software update. We are really looking forward to making Belle available to people as it will truly bring a new experience to everybody.”

It still doesn’t explain why Nokia changed the well-known Symbian name, but I guess like the removal of Ovi – Nokia wants all their users and devices to have the same unified Nokia experience. Nokia also updated the list of phones that will be getting Nokia Belle. The full list now consists of: the Nokia 500, Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia E6, Nokia X7, Nokia C6-01,Nokia C7, and Nokia Oro.
