Nokia N8 Delayed for a Few Weeks, Due Some Time in October

Nokia N8 Delayed for a Few Weeks, Due Some Time in October

It looks like rumors about the Nokia N8 being delayed were true, after all. In a recent report last week, Indian analyst Gaurav Hasabnis claimed that Nokia would be delaying the N8 smartphone until October, saying that it was in fact a global delay. But Nokia said that everything was still on track in the same report, pointing out that they would still be making that late Q3 2010 launch window. Press material continued to state that, by the end of September, the N8 would be available and in customer's hands. However, that's all come crashing down, as Nokia has officially delayed the N8 for a few weeks.

A Week with the Nokia N8: Can Symbian Survive?

A Week with the Nokia N8: Can Symbian Survive?

I'm in London this week at Nokia World and it's a defining moment for Nokia. Last week Nokia announced their CEO's departure, and new CEO (and Microsoft alum) Stephen Elop. Nokia phones once defined state of the art and the S60 platform defined the modern smartphone era in 2002. Today, in a world dominated by news of the latest Android and iOS devices, Nokia looks to drive forward their relevance and innovation.

Among the plethora of news, one of the highlights is Nokia officially unveiling the N8, their flagship device for the Symbian^3 platform. I've been using one for the last week or so and I can safely say it's the best Symbian phone I've ever used. The question remains, though: is that good enough in today's competitive market?

There are only a few days to go until Nokia World 2010, but over at the company's blog they're already getting in on the crystal ball gazing fun with their Nokia U concept.  The product of a "Design by Community" effort, it seemingly demonstrates that when you ask Nokia fans for their ideal device they throw in every high-end specification of recent months in a chassis that looks like a slimmed down N8.
