N9 and Windows Phone: Banquo’s ghosts at Nokia’s Anna banquet

N9 and Windows Phone: Banquo’s ghosts at Nokia’s Anna banquet

It was supposed to be an event to launch the first handsets running Symbian Anna in India - the Nokia X7 and the Nokia E6. And yes, most of the talk from Nokia at the dais was about the devices and the Anna update to Symbian ^3. But looming over the event, rather like a pair of Shakespearean ghosts at a Macbethian banquet, were two names with which Nokia has been associated: Windows Phone and the N9. Many was the media person who asked the Nokia team about the "phone without buttons" (the MeeGo driven N9). And when the floor was thrown open for questioning after the quartet of Gul Panag, Soha Ali Khan, Diandra Soares and Sagarika Ghatge (who we were told symbolised Anna - but THAT is another story) had sashayed down a makeshift ramp with the newly launched handsets, many of the questions that were directed at Viral Oza, Director Marketing, Nokia India, were about what Nokia planned to do with the troika of MeeGo, Symbian and Windows Phone.

Hands on with the Nokia E6

Hands on with the Nokia E6

Even as Nokia transitions from Symbian to Windows Phone operating system, the handset vendor is still busy tweaking the soon-to-be-defunct platform. Nokia calls this new version of Symbian 'Anna' and will soon launch the E6, which will be one of the first smartphones running this operating system. We spent some time with this 'Touch and Type' smartphone today and we feel that this could be one of the better offerings from Nokia in a long while. The phone feels sturdy to hold and the new user interface comes as a whiff of fresh air. Having said that, Symbian Anna is no where close to Android or iOS, which justifies Nokia's decision to go for Windows Phone. Hit the break for our first impressions and a mega hands-on gallery of the Nokia E6.
