Nokia Symbian Anna out next month

N8, C7, E7 and C6-01 will all start shipping with new software.

If the MeeGo-packing N9, announced officially overnight, hasn’t set your juices flowing, perhaps the news that Nokia’s spanking new Symbian Anna software is due for rollout will.

The boost to Nokia’s old-school smartphone platform will be sitting pretty on all Nokia N8s, C7s, E7s and C6-01s that are sold from July onwards. Those already touting one of those phones can get the new software from August.

Symbian Anna is Nokia’s latest attempt to bring its OS into line with Android and iOS. A new homescreen makes it easier to navigate, while a portrait virtual QWERTY should mean tapping out text is easier. There’s also deep social integration, with status info appearing alongside a friend’s contact details.

Nokia says it’ll be releasing ten new Symbian phones in the next year, that despite switching its top-end focus to Windows Phone later this year.
