Nokia N8 US preorders start: $549 for end of September

Nokia has begun accepting preorders for the US version of the upcoming Nokia N8, with the Symbian^3 smartphone set to arrive at the end of September 2010.  Priced at $549, the N8 has a 12-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, a five-band WCDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100 modem suitable for both AT&T and T-Mobile USA, together with 16GB of onboard storage.

As well as the N8 itself, Nokia include a fair few accessories in the box, too.  There's the usual USB cable, a stereo headset and travel charger, but also the HDMI adapter cable (for plugging in the N8 to your HDTV and outputting up to 720p HD video) and the USB OTG cable which allows the smartphone to access external storage.

There's more information – together with details on our hands-on report – on the N8 over at its SlashGear Roots page.
