Trying to steal a little bit of the spotlight from HTC today, Nokia has some introductions as well that should pique the interests of business people and entertainment fans alike.

Both the Nokia E6 (pictured right) and Nokia X7 (pictured above) will be the first handsets that will ship with the complete update of the Symbian software already onboard. (That update, a.k.a. Symbian Anna, will also be pre-loaded on newly-shipping N8, E7, C7 and C6-01 devices and will be available as a download for previously purchased models.) The updated software includes all the usual enhancements such as a faster browser and improved text input, and it will also have some new icons and a refreshed Ovi Maps.

But let's break down the specs on each of these devices. Starting with the BlackBerry-esque Nokia E6, it sports a full QWERTY keypad and is made out of stainless steel and glass, among other materials. Furthermore, the business-minded handheld provides access to Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Communicator Mobile and Microsoft SharePoint.

Continuing on to the Nokia X7, this one is all about entertainment with that 4-inch touch screen and copies of Galaxy on Fire HD and Asphalt 5 HD games pre-loaded. Users can make their own multimedia using the 8-megapixel camera that also shoots HD video.

Expected to start shipping in Q2, pricing and exact release dates haven't been revealed for either of these smartphones just yet.
