Nokia made an error back in April when it officially announced Anna. Why? Because it's basically nonsensical and confusing to announce it - just because you've got the E6 and X7 coming out - but all us N8 and E7 and C6 and C7 owners have to wait MONTHS AND MONTHS before we get to update to Anna. I just counted: 5 months. That's a long time in the mobile phone world.
I will say this though: my E7 runs just fine without Anna, and I'm very happy with it, even with the browser (am I the only one? haha) I just hope Anna doesn't bring any problems with her, like Ovi Store suddenly not loading up, for example. I am tempted to wait a while after she's released, because I am of the "if it ain't broke why fix it" school, and right now, my E7 sure ain't broke!

Try almost 9mths for us early adopters..(never again)
Also have E7 and it was terrible slow, until i installed Skchan Mods.. But even so , its not as good as Anna.on my N8.
The E7 is a nice phone, but alas, has no portrait qwerty , nor a decent browser , among many other things..

The last time I had a smartphone with a touchscreen and a landscape hardware qwerty keyboard, I never bothered with the virtual portrait keyboard. Mind you, this was the HTC TyTN II, which required a stylus for the tiny onscreen keyboard - a major challenge for one-handed operation
Exciting stuff! I am looking forward to an improved Calendar and hopefully, lots of bug fixes. I hope someone can provide an official changelog. We've heard about the 'big' changes for so long now (new browser, calendar, portrait qwerty and maps) I would like to know what has been tweaked 'under the hood'. A few random restarts and freezes on my E7 has me hoping!

how long would the official anna be out OTA after appearing on the servers?
If it appears on the servers for your product code it means it is ready for your handset for updating via Ovi suite or Nokia Software updater. Not sure about FOTA update availability though.
Guys anna is finally out!!!
as of this post it is out in India and alot of the Euro region
As far as I know it is only available for a handful of Indian product codes. Don't know anything about it being available for European product codes.
go check the servers through whatever means you guys tend to use :L
don't want to get banned or anything... so wont say too much... but atm its out for alot of europe product codes, india, malaysia and more.... depending which server u check
this is for N8 btw
It's definately available for some of the UK handsets.
I have Product code 059C5Q5 (orange color UKCV) and it's available for it
Anyone have any info on availability of Anna in the US? I'm starting to worry that Nokia's "big pull out of Symbian from USA" might include no Anna update too. Doubt it bit you never know
I don't see any US product codes at the minute but it think the reason for the big delay is that Nokia wanted a global simultanious release, so i'd expect to see the all the different product codes loaded over the next few days....then an official announcement when they're all ready for download

It was first released for Indian region. its avialable for All the indian product codes
Updated My friends E7.....Its very fast No Lag at all
Yeah that makes sense. More patience required!! Nice to know that the ball is rolling though, and that early adopters in India are seeing a faster UI. Very nice work boys and girls. Looking forward to it!
I cannot connect to servers via Ovi or FOTA here in UK so hopefully their loading Anna up at this moment
