N8 Firmware Update: Anna's features

In Singapore, Nokia Connections was the venue for more announcements about the upcoming Anna firmware updates. Nokia will start shipping N8, E7, C7 and C6-01 with Symbian Anna in July but it will be possibly August when existing owners can get the download. If you don't have a new Nokia, it's probably best to wait till July and get one with the new firmware installed.

The new firmware promises the following features:
  • New interface 
  • Faster web browser (and we all know we need that!) 
  • Portrait orientation QWERTY keyboard on screen 
  • Improved OVI Maps allowing Public Transport options and location sharing
  • Access to Intranet and Business level security for emails
  • Social media integrated to the address book and homescreen
