Today, orvvan from DailyMobile forum posted the leaked firmware files for the so-called Symbian Belle. I downloaded it. I installed it on my N8. Now, I found an interesting thing to note. On the Device manager of my N8, it states that it has Software version 022.014.28.01 and Software version date of 2011-07-05. We know that the Nokia X7 already has Symbian Anna installed. It's version number is 022.014 and the date is 2011-07-05. Now what I think is the Symbian Anna for the N8 and other Symbian^3 devices will be different on the ones that shipped on X7 and E6. Another thing that also adds support to my speculation is that me and other users said that Symbian Anna version 022.014 is already available at Navifirm! Could it be the final Anna that contains new UI? I know you are confused just as me. Just take a look at the photos...

Well, let's just wait for a few days or weeks. Or if you can't wait, download the version 022.014 files for N8 on Navifirm and flash it with Phoenix. Be sure to leave a comment on what it is. :)
