The Nokia N8 has finally been slapped with an official release date. Direct from Espoo itself, the news comes nearly six months from the phone’s initial announcement and a month after it was supposed to hit shelves.
In a statement, Nokia said, “The much-anticipated Nokia N8 will be on-sale at the Nokia Online Shop for £429 SIM free or on contract from £35 per month. Pre-order now at www.nokia.co.uk/N8 to make sure you're one of the first to get a Nokia N8 when it goes on sale exclusively at the Nokia Online Shop during the last week of September.”
If you don’t fancy some of the pre-order action, you can get your N8 from 1 October from T-Mobile, Vodafone, Tesco, Carphone Warehouse, Three, Virgin, Orange, O2 and Phones4U.
With the 12 megapixel packing Symbian 3 phone finally lined up, the rumour mill will doubtless turn the to the MeeGo-powered N9 for its next fix.
