Symbian Anna changed the attitude to the Symbian OS, and I am sure the walls between people and Symbian will be demolished with Symbian Bell and its “sisters.” According to an earlier announcement, Nokia will develop its operating system until 2016 so there are several years and everything can be changed yet… Maybe Nokia will change its mind and launch devices running both Windows Phone and Symbian. However, this time it is not so important, as we have 4 cuties that are ready for Symbian Anna.
I’m speaking about the Nokia N8, the E7, the C7 and the C6-01. They are different, and you must realize Symbian Anna will look different on them. We have already posted those fresh videos Nokia had made earlier, but don’t you want to know how Symbian Anna will look on each smartphone and what goodies it will bring? So, let’s go!
The Nokia N8 is the most popular smartphone from the N-series, and it is not accidental as the phone boasts a 12MP camera that seems to be able to do everything. Symbian Anna changes the appearance of the OS completely, but it mainly depends on the screen size and the phone design. So, as Nokia N8’s advantage is its camera, we can easily assume Anna will make the main changes here. And we’re right — the Nokia N8 supports 720p/30fps video recording due to the update.
The Nokia E7 sports a larger and sharper display so it is quite obvious the update will look more attractive on this phone. But as the E7 features a hardware QWERTY keyboard, we must understand the changes will be directed here. So the main advantage brought by Anna to the E7 is the introduction of a portrait-style on-screen keyboard. Moreover, now the handset provides a faster browser and a revamped calendar.
The Nokia C7 is known for its inclination to social networking. So, everything related with it is now more accessible than ever. Although Symbian Anna brings such functionality to the C7 other handsets can’t provide — the phone now supports NFC. There is still not much to rejoice, but this technology is progressing and the Nokia C7 can benefit soon.
Finally, the Nokia C6-01, which is equipped with a smaller screen than the others, but sports a physical QWERTY keyboard and costs cheaper, also has received a number of goodies coming with Symbian Anna.
Of course, I have my own anticipated handset in this list that will undoubtedly look more attractive, but it’ll be nice to hear your feedbacks.
