Nokia Confirms U.S. Delivery of Symbian Anna
Nokia has confirmed that owners of Symbian-based smartphones in the U.S. now have access to the Anna system update. Anna will be delivered to the Nokia N8, C7, C6-01 and E7. Symbian Anna uses a new set of icons on the home screens, offers a portrait software QWERTY keyboard, and makes usability improvements to the photo gallery. Nokia targeted some of the new features towards business users, including instant messaging with Microsoft Communicator Mobile, and meeting request support and hardware-accelerated device encryption within the email program. Symbian Anna also includes the latest versions of Nokia Maps, the browser, Nokia Store, Nokia Suite, and Nokia's Social application. Symbian Anna also activates the NFC hardware in the Nokia C7. The update will be provided over the air or via Nokia Suite.
