Nokia N8 – timing, price, upgrade, where it will be sold

| July 31, 2010 | 30 Replies

According to a blog post by Eldar Murtazin, the Nokia N8 timing, price, and other info are apparently as below:

  • Price: 420GBP (iPhone 3Gs on play at 599GBP)
  • Release: Late September (September 25) – hmm, what about those August 25th rumours? Apparently due to revision of the cost, as told by Nokia PR director back in may
  • Asian markets will get free stylus. Russian markets apparently have a free silicone case. Eldar says N8 looks much better without the case. Seriously though, what manufacturer of phones that makes a beautiful aluminium handset puts a coloured casing to hide it huh?
  • Further changes into N8 firmware, with DivX being installed (hence why DivX probably wasn’t confirmed/denied during launch interviews, only in later posts from NokConv)
  • New firmware (to be flashed mid August). Stability improves significantly week on week, but still with some niggles (perhaps right now, not the final sales piece?)
  • New browser supposed to be coming Sept, but now Oct (Rafe has always said new browser was coming Oct, no?) N8 first to have new browser – will it be MicroB grade?
  • Hardware changes final
