Nokia N8 UK release date 23rd September

N8 arriving sooner than expected on Nokia's website

Confusion and mystery has surrounded the Nokia N8, ok, mainly confusion, but now it seems the wait is over.

Nokia itself has inadvertently revealed that the Nokia N8 will be available online from 23 September. In buying up Ad Word space from Google the company has revealed that us Brits should be able to get our hands on the much heralded smartphone from Nokia's website, a whole week before it's general release.

The Nokia N8 has been arriving slowly and amidst some confusion over its release date, with the arrival being pushed back further and further then finally brought forward. With its anodised aluminium case, 12MP camera and HDMI-output the N8 is to be the flagship of Nokia's smartphone range and also the first standard-bearer of Symbian 3.

Featuring also a 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen with pinch-to-zoom capability Nokia is resting its hopes on the N8 being able to keep up with the likes of the HTC Desire and Apple iPhone 4. This of course remains to be seen, and if this news turns out to be correct, the comparisons can begin a whole lot earlier than expected.
