Even with the previous announcement that Nokia was going to focus on Windows Phone, it’s nice to see the company didn’t forget its existing Symbian users.
The new update, Symbian Anna, is available on Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia C7, and Nokia C6-01. The update brings a lot of good changes to the phones including:
UI changes – crisp icons, multiple usability enhancements, QWERTY keyboard available in portrait mode, and split screen viewing
Maps/Navigation – enhance Nokia Maps with better search, public transportation routes, check-in ability for geo-tagging apps
Browsing – faster browser, quicker page loads
Business – improved data encryption for business users to access company intranets with IPSEC and SSL VPN
NFC (Near Field Communication) – Nokia C7 users can tap their phones to share contacts, photos, video, pair NFC-enabled accessories, and read NFC tags
The delivery schedule of the new update has not been released, but will depend on the market that users are in.
