Amazon Germany has apparently begun cancelling Nokia N8 preorders, according to FinestFones, informing customers by email that while the retailer had attempted to source the smartphone in a timely manner, they had been unable to do so with the Symbian^3 smartphone.  Interestingly, they also say that while they try to ensure their database is up to date, manufacturers sometimes change their release plans; it's unclear whether Nokia has been delayed in its release intentions for the N8, which many had expected sometime in August.

In the company's recent financial results call, CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo confirmed the N8 would ship toward "the end of the third quarter"; that could suggest a late September debut.  Previous rumors had suggested August 25th as the date the N8 might arrive in the UK, though there's still no solid confirmation from the Finnish firm itself.

Amazon Germany began taking preorders for the Nokia N8 back in late May, with the handset priced at €469.50 ($587).  Both price and preorder option have now been removed.
