Nokia N8 Release Date Confirmed for the UK
Apparently, retail workers across the pond are far more knowledgeable when it comes to high-profile devices, than they are here in the States. We’re only saying that, because if we were to go into any store here and ask when, say, the Motorola Shadow was going to be released, we’d probably just get stared at. Maybe even asked to leave. But, maybe it’s Pocket-Lint’s good looks that got them to get the information they were looking for. They’ve just confirmed when the Nokia N8 is going to launch in the UK.
The new powerhouse from Nokia is set to launch in Germany on August 24, but obviously those in the UK were hoping that they might get it before that. Probably because that’s a long ways to wait. It doesn’t help that Vodafone has a registration page for the device on their site, either. Well, unfortunately for the Brits eagerly anticipating the device’s launch, it looks like they’ll have to wait another day after Germany gets their mitts on it. That’s right: looks like the Nokia N8 will be hitting the UK on August 25th, 2010.
If you’ll recall, that means on that fateful day, customers will be able to get their hands on 720p video playback, a 12MP camera, and Symbian^3 for your mobile Operating System (OS). But, if you need more reasons why you should think about getting the device, check out our hands-on with the device, where we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised (even if you don’t get to see the device powered on).
