Owners of the Nokia C6-01, E7, and N8 U.S. models can download the Symbian Anna update at long last, more than two months after it was first available in Europe. This version of Espoo's burning platform includes features such a split screen touchscreen keyboard, a faster browser, a new version of Nokia Maps, improved calendar, and better performance. The update is available over the air or via Windows PC using the Nokia Suite software, but there are some early reports of installation issues, particularly for users that installed "Nokia Bubbles" — click the Nokia US Support link for a few solutions.
We still don't know when or if these U.S. phones will receive Symbian Belle, which was announced alongside a trio of smartphones in August, but don't hold your breath. The Finnish company just unveiled its first two Windows Phones, the Lumia 710 and Lumia 800. Naturally, those devices aren't arriving in the U.S. until early 2012.
