Nokia N8 arriving before end of August?

It was back in May when we got hands-on with the Nokia N8, but as yet, the finished handset has yet to hit our shelves. That wait could soon be over.

According to Nok Nok, the first Symbian^3 smartphone has appeared on the site of online retailer MobileFun, with a release date of August 26th and a price of £420. Of course, that's a sim-free price, expect to pay something nearer nothing for contract purchases when it lands on the networks.

It's a much-anticipated handset and could be a major turning point for Nokia. The company is still shifting a lot of handsets, but at the high end of the market, it's finding competition fierce.

That said, the N8 could be a seriously tempting proposition, with a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen, an all-new new interface and a 12-Megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and HD video support, not to mention an integrated battery and external slots for both microSD and sim cards. If it's hitting the sim-free market, we expect it will hit the contract market around the same time, so look out for announcements about that very soon.
