Yesterday Nokia began uploading the Symbian Anna firmware for the N8 and E7 on its servers. Luckily, it didnít stop with those two and the Anna updates for C7 and C6-01 also hit the servers later.
Symbian Anna is available now for download via the official channels - either as an OTA update or through the Ovi Suite. All Nokia N8, E7, C7 and C6-01 qualify for the update no matter the region, carrier or color.
Currently, the Anna updates are rolling out in most of Europe and Asia but itís a matter of days before they go worldwide.
In case you've missed all the important stuff about Symbian Anna, it brings along a completely new web browser, a split-screen text input view, a new homescreen, menu icons and visuals plus improved overall performance and a few updates for Maps, Mail, Photos and Calendar. Nokia N8 gets continuous auto-focus in video recording plus a higher video framerate (30fps), while the C7's NFC capabilities are also finally enabled.
Let's hope the Symbian Belle update won't take Nokia as long as the Anna one.
Anna update finally arrived a whopping 2 months after this article was published! At least the update was worth it though. :-)
Hi, I downloaded the Symbian Anna and honestly, it's not as great as it's been made out to be! Now I want to revert to the earlier S3 version and am unable to do so! What can be done to regain the old version of the OS?
Is anna alresdy available in south africa?
