Anna update scheduled for existing devices in August

It will be just about a year after the release of the Nokia N8 when we will be getting the update that was talked about during the release. According to a post on Nokia Conversations, Anna will ship on new N8, C7, and C6-01s that are bought starting in July while the E6 and X7 already have it loaded. As you know, my Nokia Astound also has Anna and I love it! I also have my own Nokia E6 coming this week that has Anna preloaded so by the time it comes to existing devices I may no longer even have those devices.

Speaking of existing devices, I had to pass my orange Nokia N8 on to my wife since her blue one is a lemon and hangs and shuts down on her all the time. You do not want a wife with a goofy phone that you recommended and since I prefer the E7 to the N8 myself I have no problem passing it along to her.

Hopefully, Nokia can keep this August date at least since I told my wife when we bought her blue N8 back in February that Swype in portrait would be coming very soon and these update delays are killing my reputation.

Nokia lost me today, as the new N8 and such will ship with Anna in July, but we can not update until end of August. I am officially searching for a new phone.

Will the Anna update be available for the E-7 as well?

I have a nexus one and find the E-7 to be very impressive. Android seems like a toy, while the E7 seems very serious. I don’t need all those apps and games.

Speaking of the E7, I had to return mine to Newegg to exchange for another. When I plug in the ear buds, I get a loud humming. If I plug in half way and move it around, I can get a pop up on screen that says headPHONES/mic and then plug in all the way and no humming. The music however sounded distorted. Tried the headset on my mac and they sound great.

Anyway, I see elsewhere on the web that the E7 will receive Anna, which makes perfect sense.
