We found a new video showing the much awaited, yet-to-be released Symbian ^3 update that will bring split-screen text input and some major browser improvements to phones such as Nokia N8, C7, C6-01 and E7.

The split-screen typing ability is something Nokia touch phone users have been asking for since day one. And we did see a pretty similar video of it before. Way before, actually, back in Oct. 2010. Now that's a long wait!

Here's the previous scoop we made on the browser.

It looks like the split-screen typing works well. But it doesn't look like much. The keyboard looks very uncomfortable. Still we guess most Nokia N8 users will be happy with the upgrade. The firmware seen on the screen is dated February 11th so we guess it's one of the latest revisions.

Hopefully, the update will be available some time soon. Or not?

Enough babble, you can watch the video now:

I was really confused, i have my choice already but some new innovations try to change it. But let me wait for a while. Nokia E5 or Nokia C5 -03?
