The Nokia N8 was expected to go on sale at the end of September, although now it seems that it may be delayed a couple of weeks, according to a recent statement that Nokia has released.
So it looks like Nokia N8 fans will have to wait until October to get their hands on Nokia’s latest smartphone, full details below.
The amount of preorders has exceeded our expectations and we are working hard to deliver the Nokia N8 to the market. In some markets, we had planned to start delivering the Nokia N8s to our pre-order customers by the end of September. To ensure a great user experience, we have decided to hold the shipments for a few weeks to do some final amends. We’re thrilled with the response that we’ve had to the Nokia N8 and assure everyone who’ve pre-ordered it already that it’ll be worth the wait! We expect consumers to get their Nokia N8s during October.
The Nokia N8 features a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels, and it features 16GB of built in storage, plus a microSD card slot that can take up to 32GB cards.
There is also a 12 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and a Xenon flash, plus integration with a range of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and updates are delivered directly to the N8’s home screen, and it also feature access to a range of Nokia OVI services.
