Nokia N86 8MP NAM Edition arrives in US (at long last)

Nokia's N86 NAM edition has finally shown up for sale in the US, offering S60-loving photography addicts what could be the perfect smartphone for their dual desires.  Announced all the way back at Mobile World Congress in February, the N86 packs an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and Carl Zeiss optics, and is priced at $468.99.

The phone had been previously tipped for an August 22nd launch in the US, a date which merrily wheeled past with nary a sign of the high-spec snapper.  Still, there are plenty of people who have seen this as a smartphone worth waiting for, offering as it does 3G HSDPA/HSUPA, a 2.6-inch OLED display running at 240 x 320 QVGA resolution, and 8GB of onboard memory augmented with microSD cards.

For more on the Nokia N86 8MP, check out our hands-on from Mobile World Congress and the video demo below.  There's also more detail at Nokia's own site.
