Nokia N8 on its way to Vodafone UK

Vodafone UK now have the Nokia N8 on their “Coming Soon” page, so it seems a pretty safe bet that Nokia’s new top-end Symbian ^3 powered handset will indeed be “Coming Soon” to Vodafone UK.

You can probably also safely bet that the phone is “Coming Soon” to other carriers, too… but I don’t have a handy reference page for any other operators. Sorry.

There is no official release date yet, but rumours have it pegged for August 24th, and pre-order pages over at are asking €469.50 (that’s US$575 for the curious Americans in the audience) for the flagship device.

The strong-point of the handset so far seems to be it’s video recording, which looks, well, superb, even though some people are questioning the device’s very existence.

We’ll just have to wait and see how production models stack up against the first impressions given by the pre-release samples/leaks.
