At last, an official date for Nokia's N8 flagship Symbian^3 handset. This one's been a long time coming, featuring the first of two major Symbian updates meant to bring Nokia's smartphone division in line with the competition. Look for it in the "last week of September" at Nokia's on-line shops for £429 SIM free, or free with £35 per month contract. Otherwise, it'll hit the UK high street shops on October 1st. See the full announcement after the break.

Sony, 08 Sep 2010Why is there not Android in this the N8? This is a big negative thing.. I would never ever buy... moreWhy should it have android? I might not buy it if it had one?
It's still not really a mature OS, I think it's been reported that even idle it sucks shitloads of battery. It's helluva lot heavier than Symbian.
It's not bad, but it's not godlike either. I'd prefer Symbian myself.
N8 indonesia, 08 Sep 2010Nokia, you make us bored and dissapointed. Why so long2 time until now not yet available? Hufh.... Cos they probably weren't supposed to announce it so early, but they were "forced" to cos of that Eldar guy publishing a review of a prototype, so probably that's why so long time between announcement and release.

It will be at par with radio station sound quality. Theres a demo in youtube and 'www dot autotv dot com dot my'
[deleted post]you are a funny fellow.
the only thing the iPhone 4 beats the N8 in is Apps and smooth interface other then that N8 beats iPhone hands down.2 out of all features.
The iPhone is a little upgraded from the 3GS.
N8 is in a league of its own..

I'm amazed at all of the hate on Nokia.
The only reason for it that I can come up with is that the Apple Fanboys and the Sammy Boys are just jealous.
Jealous of the fact that Nokia is STILL the top dog worldwide and it's NOT going to change anytime soon.
They know it's not going to change and they can't stand it.
Can anyone else come up with any other viable reasons for the hate.
It's not opinions they are posting, it's spewing jealous hate
