Nokia’s new flagship NSeries smartphone will hit retailers on October 22nd, the Finnish phone maker has confirmed, after a series of delays that have done little to help the ailing company in the OS wars.
The phone was originally unveiled way back in April, but has been repeatedly postponed, most recently to enable Nokia to iron out some last minute glitches with its software.
The N8 is the first handset to showcase Nokia’s revamped Symbian 3 platform. Other standout features on its spec sheet include an industry leading 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and HD video recording.
The handset also comes loaded with film editing software for cutting your mini movies together and offers Dolby surround sound.
Shipments of the phone for customers who have pre-ordered the phone SIM free via Nokia’s site should be receiving their handsets imminently after it was confirmed that shipping begun last week.
However, those who pre-ordered the phones on monthly contracts will have to wait until October 22nd.
