According to AllAboutSymbian, the Finnish mobile giant is set to handout firmware updates that come with Anna's improved browser Web 7.3, updated Ovi Maps, the addition of emoticons for SMS and MMS, and more.

The following handsets are in the frame:

The updates will roll out in stages, with unbranded phones set to receive theirs first and operator-branded phones at a later date. For more information, check out the detailed run down on AllAboutSymbian. ®
