Nokia N8 Release Postponed To October?

Nokia has once again delayed its prestigious smartphone Nokia N8, which was supposed to be released in this September. It’s getting some final adjustments to face tough competition from Apple iPhone and other successful Android based mobiles.

Nokia N8 is the Nokia’s first model based on the new generation Symbian^3 OS and offers integration to all social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and more on the top screen in aluminium coated design. Looks wise it is quiet similar to the Nokia E7, and the major external change is an additional sliding QWERTY keypad and the 8MP camera.

The Nokia N8 features 12 Megapixels(4000×3000 pixels) with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash & 720p HD video recording, 3D HD capacitive touch screen, 3G, HSDPA, HSUPA, WI-FI 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS, 16GB inbuilt storage with SD card slot support up to 32GB, Adobe Flashlite 4.0, film editing software and Dolby digital surround sound.
