Nokia’s N8 finally gets a date to dance

It’s been quite a run for the infamous Nokia N8. The phone has shown up in photos, blurry cams, spec leaks, price speculation, you name it the Nokia N8 has been there and back. But today brings the world some great news. The Nokia N8 gets a time frame for launch. This little N8 is big in the britches and is surely a phone to remember, and will most likely be a hit – at least overseas.

Ok maybe not an actual date, but the Nokia N8 goes on pre-order today. For the UK folks the unit is priced at £429 off contract and £35 per month in the form of contract. The N8 is also now available for pre ordering within the US as well, the N8 is priced at only $549…only. If you’re really interested UK folks can check out and you American’s can check out to get your pre-ordering on. The pre-ordering starts today and the device is slated for an “end of September” time stamp. This is not the last we will be hearing of the N8 as it’s a sure bet that it will be all the rage at Nokia World, which essentially is a worldwide press conference is held by Nokia. The General Manager of Nokia UK had this to say about his new N8 in Nokias press release “The Nokia N8 is a great multitasker, packed with market leading innovations, which include the best picture and video capability available on a smartphone”. We shall see.

The N8 is a Symbian ^3 powered device with some pretty cool features. The N8 has a 3.5″ Capacitive touch screen with a 640 x 360 resolution, it carries a 12MP Carl Zeiss optics camera, 16 GB of internal memory and expandable micro SD memory up to 32GB, five colors to chose from, and the list goes on.

But go check out the new N8’s specs at, and let us know if there’s something in there that makes you go uhhhhh. I mean a 12 MP camera with HD recording capabilities and video editing, don’t sound too shabby to me. But I want your take on the N8!
