The Symbian Anna update rolling out for the Nokia N8, C7, E7 and C6-01

The Symbian Anna update rolling out for the Nokia N8, C7, E7 and C6-01
Just as promised for the hot summer month of August, the incremental Symbian Anna update is gradually rolling out to Nokia's Symbian^3 handsets, either OTA, or via Ovi Suite on your computer.

The download is around 27MB, and that's if all your firmware is up to date, so Ovi Suite might be preferable here, rather than waiting for the OTA update to hit your specific handset. For now the Symbian Anna update, which takes about 20 minutes if all goes well, seems to grace handsets in places like UK, France, Italy and India, with more to follow in the week(s) ahead.

The more interesting Symbian Belle update also leaked recently for the Nokia N8, but from unofficial sources, so if you want your evolution gradual, better stick to lady Anna for now. The source has compiled the changelog that is confirmed for now, and there are some handset-specific components, like the continuous autofocus and higher frame rate for the Nokia N8, which will roll out separately next week. In the case of the Nokia C7, the update unlocks its dormant NFC capabilities.

finally it is coming, about 3 months after it was announced. Seems like Nokia doesn't care to much about symbian updates anymore, and that's becauseof mr elop.

Thank you again Elop, for discriminating against loyal Nokia Symbian US customers! Oh and BTW, I don't like you telling me what Mobile OS is good for me; that's for me to decide.

So, I don't get it... This "Anna" update is only for Nokia phones with Symbian^3, or is it for Nokia phones with Symbian S60v5 as well? I have a Nokia n97 and I would LOVE to update its software to ANYTHING that is better then this... :/
