For those who are using Nokia Symbian 3 devices, here is good news for you. Nokia has announced a new update for devices like N8, C7, C6-01 and E7. You can now update your OS to Symbian Anna. We have covered most of the new features of Symbian Anna OS way back.
Currently it will be available in Belgium, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, Germany, India, Indonesia, Kuwait, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Thailand, UAE, and UK. Others can expect it in next week.
Improved text messaging
There’s a portrait QWERTY keyboard for fast, single-handed typing.
There’s also a split-screen view while you’re typing, so you can see the web pages, forms and message threads you’re replying to.
The browser is easier to use and faster, and offers better compliance with recent standards.
Ovi Maps now has a simpler and quicker search function.
It also includes public transport routes.
And you can check in to social networks, send emails and SMS messages sharing your location.
Email improvements include full meeting request support.
Hardware-accelerated encryption of your phone’s data for true business-grade security.
Secure intranet access for business users who need IPSEC and SSL VPN enablers.
Symbian Anna also activates the NFC hardware in the Nokia C7, for easy sharing, games, use with NFC-enabled accessories and reading NFC tags on other items.
Here is How you can Download it
The Symbian Anna update will be available through Ovi Suite on the PC or the SW Update app on your phone. This is a large download, so for speed and reliability, the Ovi Suite method is best. We do not recommend that you attempt to update over-the-air unless you have a strong and reliable WiFi connection.
