The first Symbian Anna phones, the Nokia E6 and the Nokia X7, are now shipping. Announced back in April, these two have been on pre-order for a while and now you can buy one, if you don’t mind a stretched out delivery date.
The touchscreen/QWERTY E-series messenger, the Nokia E6, will be available in Europe, Eurasia, Asia/Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Nokia Germany’s online store still have it on pre-order for €429 while Italians can pre-order it for €399. The Nokia UK online store still lists it as available on pre-order for £349 (€400) SIM-free.
It is shipping now if you want to get it on a contract (phone is free with a £25/month contract with Vodafone or T-Mobile) or on pre-paid for £339 with Vodafone, T-Mobile or Orange. There’s a note saying you should allow 11 days for delivery.
The Nokia X7 and its 4” AMOLED screen will be headed to Europe, Eurasia, China, India and other Asia/Pacific countries. Its pre-order price in Germany (according to Nokia’s online store) is €459 and €429 in Italy, which is quite steep despite all of Symbian Anna’s improvements. It’s missing from the UK store right now.
We’re expecting Nokia’s online stores to switch the Nokia E6 and X7 status to “available” soon.
symbian anna is far better than symbian^3 and android 2.3
When will anna be released? If its taking so long, nokia will further lose their loyal clients like me. Android is promising. Android makes my symbian phone look tiny.. Wake up nokia! Listen to us..
But the fact it doesn't get scratched as easily and that the fact. Nokia has done a very good job on the quality
