Symbian Anna Update To Be Available For Download By End Of August

Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop has just announced at the recently concluded Nokia Connection event that the existing Symbian^3 based handsets will be getting the Anna update in August.

Nokia will start shipping the current bunch of Symbian^3 handsets (N8, E7, C7, C6-01) with Symbian Anna pre-installed beginning from July. Existing Symbian^3 handset owners need to wait until the end of August, to download the update for their handset. Yeah, that’s how Nokia respects its loyal users.

Symbian Anna will be bringing some much needed changes to Symbian^3, in a bid to make it more competitive with iOS, Android and WP7. First and foremost, the update will bring a new web-browser with a much improved performance, along with support for split-screen text-input. The update will also bring a portrait QWERTY keyboard for easier typing.

Other new features include updated icons, performance improvements, new version of Ovi Maps with simpler and quicker search function, email enhancements, hardware accelerated encryption and a new version of Nokia’s social client.

Nokia is already shipping Symbian devices based on Symbian Anna including the recently launched Nokia E6 and the X7. So, I cannot possibly think of any techinical’ reason as to why they delayed the Anna update for the Nokia N8, E7, C7 and the C6-01.

Nokia Releases PR1.2 For N8, C6-01 and C7

 

Nokia has released a voluntary software update for the N8, C6-01 and C7 smartphones aligning them with the current offerings on the new E7. The aforementioned Symbian devices will be bumped to PR1.2 while the same software is referred to as PR1.1 on the recently launched E7. The main purpose of the update is to address an issue with Mail for Exchange synchronization with servers running Exchange 2010 with Service Pack 1. In addition to bug fixes, the update brings along a new version of the Ovi Store client and adds subway, train and tram locations, real time traffic, safety alerts, updated POI as well as improved search and location sharing functionality to Ovi Maps.

The update is available to unlocked devices and will come bundled later with the upcoming PR2 software for customized operator subsidized phones. Since this is a voluntary update, no software will be pushed to handsets and users must explicitly check for updates on their device for completing an OTA update (WiFi and cellular are both supported) or can check via the Nokia Software Updater which is part of the Ovi Suite.

Nokia has just released a new firmware update for the recently released business communicator Nokia E7.

The PR 1.1 (v14.002) software update for the E7 is a minor update and does not bring any noticeable improvements or changes. The update mainly improves the performance and stability of the handset, along with fixing some minor bugs.

Nokia E7 owners will be automatically prompted by their handset to download and install the update. However, users can manually check for the firmware update by using the SW Update’ application in the phone. The update will be slowly rolled out by Nokia in different regions of the world, so users need to be patient before the update hits their phone.

Nokia E7 Delayed To Early Next Year

During the Nokia World 2010, the Finnish giant announced the biiiiggg’ Nokia E7. The E7 sports a huge 4-inch screen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Many people consider it to be the successor to the last Communicator’ E90. When Nokia announced the handset, the company said that the device will hit the retail stores before the year end.

However, now All About Phones is reporting that Nokia has delayed its highly anticipated handset to early 2011.

NokiaE7

Apparently, the reason for the delay is a minor durability issuewith the E7 hardware. However, due to the delay the E7 will be missing the holiday shopping season now I am pretty sure the sales of the handsets are going to take a hit.

Also, next year we will be seeing the launch of some awesome Android devices with NVidia Tegra 2 processors. I seriously wonder how the E7 will be able to compete with them next year.
