Re: Symbian Anna

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. 

 

 

Nokias: 232, 3210, 3330, 6230, 6101, 6021, 6126, E75, E73, N900, N8, E6, E7, N9. There's a Samsung in there somewhere too, but...we don't talk about that.

Re: Symbian Anna

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!  :smileyhappy:

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 :smileyhappy:

Re: Symbian Anna

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!

 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.

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.

Re: Symbian Anna

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  :smileyindifferent:

Re: Symbian Anna

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

Re: Symbian Anna

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!  :smileyhappy:

Re: Symbian Anna

yeah it wasn't available yet for my N8 via PC Suite but I was able to get it via other semi-official methods. I have a sim-free UK CV orange color handset but i noticed a lot of other UK variants in the list...including operator variants
