Nokia releases Symbian Anna phone update for US

The Symbian Anna update for Nokia smartphones has gone live in the US for the C6-01, E7 and N8 smartphones. This was confirmed by Yvonne from Nokia via an e-mail to My Nokia Blog. The update, 025.007, brings with it a number of improvements, including a new interface that includes fresh icons and wallpapers.

This includes a split screen view messaging, mail, the browser, contacts, the calendar, and maps. The full QWERTY virtual keypad also gets a split screen view and quicker access to special characters. The browser is faster and easier to use. A new Maps version improves the search function, gets a public transport network view and a Check-in feature.

There are also new versions of Ovi Store and QuickOffice as well as general performance, security and usability improvements.

We've experienced Symbian Anna in the Nokia X7 review, where we concluded the OS needs some work to be competitive.

A very similar update was released for European C6-01, C7, E7, and N8 phones in mid-August.
