All three service providers are offering the N8 with similar two year packages that will include unlimited text messages, unlimited browsing and a free mini HDMI TV cable to further enjoy the handset's HD recording capabilities from a bigger screen.

Separating the three network packages, however, is the inclusive anytime minutes. Whilst Vodafone and O2 are both including 600 minutes forcustomer's £35 per month, T-Mobile appears to have trumped the competition offering the Symbian 3 device with 900 anytime monthly minutes.

Available in five colours the new Nokia smartphone will feature a 3.5-inch multitouch capable screen, 16GB of internal storage and a dual chip processor for speedy use of apps available through the Nokia Ovi store.
