Well Nokia promised a Q3 release date for their new N8, and in the spirit of procrastinators everywhere, waited until the very last possible day to live up to that promise. The N8 shipped out today and looks pretty nice if we do say so ourselves. The N8 is one of two phones that the Finnish giant plans on releasing that are supposed to breathe life into the company’s beleaguered Smartphone division. We ourselves blogged about the recent shake up at the top at Nokia just a couple weeks ago, and wondered if the cell phone manufacturer had fallen too far behind in the Smartphone race to be a major player again. The N8 certainly doesn’t disappoint in the looks department. If features a full QWERTY keyboard (wonder if Dvorak will make a comeback someday), a 3.2 inch display, a mind boggling 12 megapixel camera that puts the Galaxy S series cameras to shame, and turn my turn navigation. As far as cell phone accessories, this bad boy comes with the standard wall charger, earphones and data cable. If you’re not a fan of the light blue metallic sheen, you’re going to need to get your own cell phone faceplate. Nokia has taken a bigger beating by the Android revolution lately than Rocky took from that guy who played the bad guy in Universal Soldier 1. If this is their attempt to shake off a potential TKO, we have to say we like their chances. We just wonder if it’s too late for them to catch up to the other major players that have passed them by the past couple of years.
