Nokia N8 landing October?

Nokia N8 landing October?

UK Nokia fans will have to wait until October to get their hands on the brand new N8 smartphone, according to the latest industry murmurings.

The official announcement of the N8 was made in April and Nokia hinted that it would be hitting shelves at some point in the third quarter of 2010.

Now it looks as though the latest in Nokia's NSeries range of high is going to arrive in the UK at some point in October, suggesting that Nokia has pushed back its original launch plans based on the latest sources from tech site Omio.

It seems as though the network providers in the UK were already getting ready for the N8's launch far in advance, with preview pages popping up on Vodafone's website.

The Nokia N8 has high definition video recording capabilities thanks to its 12 megapixel camera and it will also be the first smartphone to use the Symbian 3 platform.

It has come under criticism far in advance of its launch because of underwhelming software, so Nokia could be taking its time to tweak the final version.

The N8 could cost as little as £309 when it is released, which could result in it becoming a great contract mobile phone, although pricing could change over the next three months.
