The team over at Nokianesia received a nice surprise in their email box this morning – a set of screenshots that are said to be of the upcoming OS update from Nokia codenamed “Carla”. This update is expected to be for the Nokia 700, 701, 603, and the Nokia 808 Pureview. According to the sender of the images, there are no plans to bring this update to 1st gen Symbian^3 devices, such as the Nokia N8, E7, C7, and C6-01.
Based on the images, it appears that there is a new on-screen QWERTY keyboard that is very Windows-esque, if you will. The lock screen losses the unlock button in favor of a swipe to unlock method. The Nokia Browser has been updated to a new version with some UI improvements. Finally, the UI of the Music player and the Options screen also received facelifts. Interestingly, the new Options screen appears to be reminiscent of the Meego Harmattan interface.
