At the Nokia Connection 2011 event today, Nokia had more to announce than just the upcoming MeeGo N9 phone. The company hasn’t forgotten about its loyal Symbian customers as well. Nokia has announced that all existing Symbian^3 devices will be receiving the Symbian Anna update in July. This means users of the N8, C7, C6-01 and E7 will be getting breath of life in their phones. All new Symbian phones from Nokia will be shipping with Symbian Anna pre-installed.
This is the first major update for Symbian^3, something a lot of users have been waiting for. It brings new icons, easier touchscreen typing, a brand new web browser, enhanced Ovi maps and more. While I’m sure we’d all like to have an exact date, take comfort in knowing that July is only a month away. Hit the break to watch a promo video for Symbian Anna:
