Both devices herald Symbian Anna, the much anticipated update to Symbian^3 bringing an improved browser, portrait QWERTY input and better Ovi Maps. The update is expected in the third quarter of the year for existing Symbian^3 devices, which should translate into a couple more months from now, but while that might seem like a lot given the lengthy wait for the update, it’s still comforting to have a confirmation that it’s indeed coming.
The Nokia X7, on one hand, is a multimedia-centric 4-inch handset with preloaded games and an 8-megapixel camera with HD 720p recording. Designwise, it ships in a combination of toughened glass and stainless steel.
The Nokia E6, on the other, will appeal to corporate folks used to portrait QWERTY candybars but not shy to use touch input. The E6 falls in the legacy of Nokia’s business E series coming with direct access to Microsoft’s corporate services like Mail for Exchange, Communicator Mobile and SharePoint. An 8-megapixel camera with no auto-focus, but capable of recording HD videos brings the finishing touch.
