If you have already placed your Nokia N8 order, there is a chance you’ve heard today N8 is delayed with a few weeks. Nokia denied the flagman needs any further work, all pre-orders should ship in time.
Earlier today Nokia sent emails about delaying N8 because of “some final amends”. Here is the statement:
"The amount of preorders has exceeded our expectations and we are working hard to deliver the Nokia N8 to the market. In some markets, we had planned to start delivering the Nokia N8s to our pre-order customers by the end of September. To ensure a great user experience, we have decided to hold the shipments for a few weeks to do some final amends. We're thrilled with the response that we've had to the Nokia N8 and assure everyone who've pre-ordered it already that it'll be worth the wait! We expect consumers to get their Nokia N8s during October."
Following this, Nokia just issued an official press statement rejecting this. The company still has 30 September as a launch date for pre-orders. Any possible delays would be related with the shipping itself and not with additional work on the phone.
Pre-orders will start shipping on 30 September. In the worst case scenario you’ll get your N8 in the first days of October and if you mind, you should take it with the postal service.
Are we the only ones who find the contradictory statements disturbing?

UPDATE: Reason for the delay is apparently because not all colours were available for shipping on first day of launch, which would have left some people without a phone on 0 day sales. I have just been informed we are looking at w/c 25/10/10 for ship...
