Nokia N8 pushed back from a late May release to mid July?

14 April, 2010

Yesterday's big announcement came and went and still no sign of Nokia N8. Sigh! We received an interesting tip about that mythical 12MP cameraphone - a possible release date and a potential carrier. We canít confirm or deny any of the rumored specs, but they suggest we're soon going to see more of the yet unannounced Nokia N8.

Here's what our tipster had to share - the Nokia N8 was originally targeted for an end of May release but recently it's been pushed back to a mid-July release.

We don't know what happened but we noticed that none of the three phones announced yesterday runs Symbian^3. And the Nokia N8 was rumored to be the phone on which Symbian Foundation's latest touch OS would debut.

Anyway, our tipster obviously works at O2 UK and says that the Nokia N8 is on their stock update, so there's a good chance that O2 UK will carry the N8. There aren't any specs our tipster could confirm or deny - the 12MP camera with 720p video recording is still not a certainty.

As July approaches, more info about the Nokia N8 should surface, to keep the leak-hungry satisfied, so stay tuned.

Thanks to our tipster, keep them coming!
