Nokia Astound on T-Mobile Finally Gets Symbian Anna

Just yesterday, we were looking at the progress Nokia’s making towards bringing Symbian Belle updates to several of its smartphones. It’s easy to forget, though, that some have been waiting just as long for Anna to get here. For users of the Astound on T-Mobile, we’ve got some good news, as it look like your Anna updates are finally on their way.

The Astound is better-known to the rest of the world as Nokia’s C7. Unlike the Astound, the C7 started shipping with Anna over the summer and updates bringing the OS to existing handsets started arriving back in August. Now T-Mobile is catching-up with the program, and the 11MB Anna update is currently being made available for OTA installation on the Astound.

What can you look forward to with Anna? Well, besides getting that one step closer to a current Symbian build, you’ll notice the new, faster web browser, much-improved on-screen text input, new icons… it’s a lot to take in, so get that update installed and start looking-through what Anna has to offer yourself.
