Nokia N8 gets unboxed, rumored 26 August UK release too
I know I wrote about hesitations of getting a Nokia N8 here before, but forget all about that since I will be getting one for sure. I want to get an orange one, but would buy a blue or green one too so it just depends on what becomes available and where. I just read over on The Handheld Blog that they had a chance to unbox a Nokia N8 retail package at an event in India. It looks like Nokia is using that great slim, low profile packaging that we saw with the N900 and other recent devices. I also like seeing the HDMI converter and USB-to-go cable so that people can get up and running right out of the box.
There are rumors of 26 August UK release date and if that is the case I may be able to buy one in the UK when I go back to Nokia World in mid-September. I just purchased my flight tickets late last week and am taking my wife and oldest daughter along too. I imagine that we will see more hardware announcements at Nokia World given that the N8 should be launching before Q3 ends and I am hoping I can cover the event with the assistance of a Nokia N8 too.
