Nokia E6, X7 confirmed, coming with all-new Symbian Anna

UPDATE: Nokia just confirmed that Symbian Anna is to come "as standard" on newly shipping Symbian^3 phones like the Nokia N8, E7, C7 and C6-01 in the next months. You'll - of course - be able to download the update for your Symbian^3 handset. Espoo also assures us that Anna is just the first of many upcoming updates for the "burning platform." With that news the fire in the Symbian camp might just have died down for a while.


Minutes before the start of theofficial Nokia event in London, the Finns have uploaded a promo ofthe long-awaited new version of Symbian^3: Symbian Anna, previouslyknown as the PR 2.0. The video also officially confirms the Nokia X7and Nokia E6, which are given a kickstart as they will be the firstphones to support the latest Symbian^3.



It's not only about the looks, eventhough Anna has a well-honed new set of icons, but mostly about twofeatures long due for an update. You guessed it right – with Annayou have an all-new web browser and portrait QWERTY input. Thehandsets will also come with an enhanced version of OVI Maps, Nokia'smapping service, which is expected to come to future Windows Phone 7 handsets.



Could this be enough for the company topush the next 150 million Symbian handsets? We leave this to yourdiscretion, so sound off in the comments below!

I'm glad I waited to get the C7/Astound; I'll be getting the X7 or the N8 if it drops in price instead!

Looks great, Nokia should've let AT&T pick up this handset for their line. It just worries me that since Symbian is a "burning platform" then why would people want to buy a phone with an OS that is on its way out? I feel Elop's choice of words were none to good.
