Posted by

The first Nokia phones featuring Symbian Anna, the Nokia E6 and Nokia X7, are now shipping. The X7 will be available in Europe, Eurasia, China, India and other Asia/Pacific countries, while the E6 will be available in Europe, Eurasia, Asia/Pacific, as well as the Middle East and Africa. As a hardcore fan of the Nokia E71 and E72 form factor, I’ve been dreaming of the day when I could touch both QWERTY and screen – and here it is with the E6.

Symbian Anna Update for Existing Devices
Sadly, for all those waiting for Symbian Anna on their N8, C6, C7, and E7, Nokia has a bummer for you – Symbian Ann will be available for you in the coming months. Months? Cripes.

With delayed devices and updates like these, it is small wonder that the Finnish manufacturer has been forced to lower sales and margins expectations in its key devices and services unit in the second quarter.

  1. well the only part of the update I appreciate is the all-in-one web browser, I hope it will be able to handle unto 6 tabs. Months away! Mhen that sounds like years

  2. Yeah, updates in the coming months … rubbish, marketing strategy or what ? if you can’t wait for months then buy the E6 or X7 huh ?? is that it Nokia ? it’s so embarrassing when I’m typing in portrait mode and I feel like I’m using the old nokia 3310 .. does it make sense ? it’s really annoying for real.. crap
