YESSSS! It has finally arrived. After over 6 months of suspense and waiting, the newest Symbian^3 update which is called Symbian Anna has been officially released. This update comes out gradually in various regions of the world, and I can confirm that I got the update too from Nigeria, West Africa.
The update I got asked me to use the Nokia Software Updater or Ovi Suite to update my C7. This means that I cannot update it using OTA.
Various sites indicate that in other regions of the world, the update can be done through OTA as well as through the Ovi Suite.
The easiest way to know if it has been released in your region is by tapping the SW update on your Nokia C7 to see if it has landed in your region. You can also do so using the PC applications: Nokia Ovi Suite or Nokia Software Updater. Symbian^3 devices have UDP (User Data Preservation), which preserves your personal files even after update. Yet, it is adviced that you backup your files on your PC before going on with the Symbian Anna update.
The good news and a point to be proud of about your Nokia C7 is the fact that this update activates the NFC function on your C7, and this is only available for the C7. Even N8 lacks that feature. Isn’t that COOL?
I will try to post the Changelog as soon as possible. Enjoy this first and feel the fast and elegant difference.
