Nokia Astound T-Mobile

Earlier this week Nokia announced that the Belle update had been made available for download for a number of Symbian handsets, including the N8, E7, E6, X7, C6-01, and C7. However, one phone that won't be getting a taste of what Belle has to offer is the Nokia Astound on T-Mobile. That's the news from the official Nokia U.S. Twitter account, which recently sent out a tweet revealing that the Astound will not be updated to Nokia Belle. No explanation for the decision was given.

Kind of a bummer, no? It's worth noting that the Astound's international brother, the aforementioned C7, does have access to the Belle update, making this news even more of a disappointment for T-Mobile Astound owners (and leading some to suggest that the decision not to update the Astound was T-Mobile's). The Astound did receive an update to Symbian Anna late last year, so here's to hoping that any owners of the device out there are happy with what they've got. Do any of you out there have an Astound on T-Mobile?
