Nokia X7, E6 now shipping with Symbian Anna
We’ve been hearing about the Nokia X7 for more than half a year now, while the business-centric Nokia E6 has been known for a couple of months, but they were nowhere to be seen in stores. This is about to change, though, as the first two handsets running Symbian Anna are already shipping, and will make it to shelves in various markets. The Nokia X7 is slated for release in Europe, Eurasia, China, India and other Asia/Pacific countries, while the portrait QWERTY Nokia E6 will appear in Europe, Eurasia, Asia/Pacific, as well as the Middle East and Africa.

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.
