Nokia N8 Launch Put Back
Nokia originally announced a September launch for its much awaited N8 handset. However, reports now suggest this date has been put back to the third week in October.
It would be surprising if you haven’t heard about this new smartphone but if you haven’t then the N8 features a capacitive touchscreen, a 12 megapixel camera with xenon flash, autofocus, a Carl Zeiss lens and 720p HD video recording.
The device will also run Nokia’s latest Symbian 3 operating system.
Everything is covered in anodised aluminium casing with a matt metallic sheen. This apparently gives the phone strength without it being heavy, something that early Nokia phones tended to be.
Despite the delay in the launch of the Nokia N8, a number or deals are beginning to surface in readiness. Vodafone for instance is offering the handset for free provided you are prepared to pay £25 per month.
Talking of Vodafone, the network company has announced that BlackBerry lovers can now get the BlackBerry Torch 9800 very shortly – the 27th September to be exact.
You can however pre-order the RIM device.
Vodafone are offering a number of contract deals in exchange for a free phone. For instance, if you pay £40 per month for 24 months you will get 1,200 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.
There is a shorter 18 month contract available but you will have to pay £55 per month although you also get extra call allowance plus BlackBerry email service.
