Having already heard that Nokia N8 preorders are likely to kick off in early July, there’s now movement from carriers too. Vodafone UK have updated their “coming soon” page to include the N8, though there’s still no sign of a firm release date.
Similarly there’s no sign of any pricing for the Symbian^3 smartphone, though we’re guessing it’ll be offered – as with most subsidized UK handsets – from free with a new 18- or 24-month agreement. Someone at Vodafone needs to check up on the N8’s spec-sheet however; we doubt it’ll actually come with a stylus like the “what’s in the box?” tab promises.
Earlier this week we discovered the N8 wouldn’t be the first handset to arrive on the market running Symbian^3, with that honor being saved for an unnamed Asian manufacturer. Still, the N8 is probably the most-anticipated Nokia in a good while.
