Nokia N8 hits Amazon preorder

Nokia's N8 smartphone has shown up for preorder on Amazon Germany, with the handset listed at €469.50 ($587) though with no estimated release date.  No surprises with the hardware specifications, so we're still expecting the same 12-megapixel autofocus camera, 720p HD video recording and HDMI output.

Nokia themselves have only committed to a Q3 2010 launch, and the MRSP – that admittedly excludes taxes – was lower than Amazon Germany are asking too, at €370.  Still, we're guessing that carriers will be offering it from free with a new contract, so if you're not feeling flush you'll still be able to get your hands on the Symbian^3 handset.

We grabbed some hands-on time with a Nokia N8 prototype earlier this week, so make sure to check out our first hardware impressions.
