Nokia have announced that Symbian Anna will be shipping with new Symbian^3 devices, and then be available for download to older Symbian^3 devices by end of August. This was confirmed by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop at the ongoing Nokia Connection 2011.
If you are planning on buying any of Nokia N8s, E7s, C7s and C6-01s soon, these will start shipping with Symbian Anna in July, so hold off a bit. If you already own one of these devices, you can take a holiday till end of August when the Anna download will be available for you.
Straight from Nokia Conversations:
At the Nokia Connection event in Singapore today, Nokia announced that it will start shipping Nokia N8s, E7s, C7s and C6-01s with Symbian Anna in July. If you already own one of these devices, you can download the software by the end of August.
End of August? Shoot me if that doesn’t mean some of us current owners won’t get it in September. Now I know that Nokia are determined to test my patience. I am tired of fantasizing over Anna on my current devices. Can I wait that long? I am mighty tempted to switch to hunting mode and go look for another hot babe to keep me company right now.
Oh, Nokia also say to expect 10 new Symbian devices in the next 12 months.
