Is the Nokia N8 coming to AT&T in early 2011?
I just posted on the North American Calling All Innovators contest and then started checking out the contest site in more detail. As I stated in that post I was wondering what device people would be using to download the applications to, but if you go to the Judges and Awards page you can see writing about New Device Tracking Period and New Device sales. What is this mysterious New Device? All the evidence suggests it is a Nokia N8. I think blue and orange Nokia N8 devices would perfectly match the blue and orange AT&T colors, don’t you?
More evidence of this is on the Rules page where the details state, “Qualifying apps must be designed, developed, fully compatible with, and published for, the Nokia N8…” Wow, doesn’t get much clearer than that, does it? I can’t imagine that Nokia is just counting on those of us who will be buying SIM-unlocked N8s and the evidence is mounting that AT&T will be picking up the N8.
OK, here is more evidence in the contest pages, “Nokia will release a new device (“New Device”) in the United States which is compatible with Apps developed for the N8, in early 2011 (“Release Date”).” Uh, OK, this HAS to be the N8 then.
