Nokia Announces Symbian Anna Update; Also E6 and X7 Handsets

Labels: , , ,

Today isn't just HTC's day, Nokia announced two new handsets today as well as Symbian "Anna" which is an update for the N8, E7, C7, and C6-01 and will be the first of a few more updates to the outdated OS. In brief, the Anna update will have new icons, a better browser, a new version of Ovi Maps, a portrait QWERTY keyboard, and "real" homescreen scrolling. Let's get back to the devices, shall we?

First up we'll talk about the Nokia E6 which is above. It's a portrait QWERTY keyboard packing handset and it's, obviously, their best one so far. It packs a 2.46-inch VGA (640 x 480 resolution) touchscreen display (326ppi), an 8MP camera with a dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, GPS, WiFi b/g/n support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 1,500mAh battery, and Symbian Anna. This one will be available in Q2 in black, silver, and white. I'd still rather wait for a Bold Touch but the choice is yours.

Next up is below and it's the Nokia X7 which has leaked many times before. This one packs a 4-inch AMOLED display, an 8MP camera with a dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a microSD card slot, 1GB of ROM, Bluetooth 3.0 / WiFi b/g/n support, a 680MHz CPU, and Symbian Anna. This will also be available in Q2 for €380 ($547 USD) unlocked. They're both pretty interesting handsets, but I'm still waiting on their first Windows Phone 7 one.
