Symbian Anna Update for August 2011

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.

    It may take long, but a stammerer will eventually pronounce ‘HYSTERECTOMY’

    Patience!

    “Oh, Nokia also say to expect 10 new Symbian devices in the next 12 months.”

    Looks to me like Windows phone 7 is not yet where Nokia wants it to be, and they will use both Meego and Symbian devices as stop gaps until WP7 is ready. This is just my assumption.

      Spacyzuma,

      Those sites are misreading things. Nokia Conversations say new N8, E7, C7 devices will SHIP with Anna from July 1, while existing owners will be able to download the software by end of August.

      Check the Nokia Conversations link in the above article.

    Finally. Just hope this is not a little too late. But many are still delighted at the announcement despite the protracted launch time!
