Nokia N86 8MP starts shipping, cameraphone fans leap with joy

10 June, 2009

Today Nokia finally announced the start of the shipping of the highly awaited Nokia N86 8MP smartphone. Usually the model can be expected to actually hit the shelves within a week of such announcement so don't head for the store just yet.

The hotly anticipated Nokia N86 8MP is the first 8 megapixel cameraphone to sport a wide 28mm lens. There are also other camera goodies onboard such as a mechanical shutter and Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia N86 8MP is also the first device with variable aperture F2.4/F3.2/F4.8. That means the device does better in low light situations thanks to the wider aperture of F2.4 and takes sharper shots in bright daylight thanks to the F4.8 aperture value.

The other goodies on board the Nokia N86 8MP include 8GB of internal memory, a microSDHC card slot, a 2.6-inch AMOLED screen, FM transmitter, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity, a 3.5mm audio jack and TV out. There's also quad-band GSM and tri-band HSDPA support for a truly worldwide voice and data roaming.

When it was officially announced back in February the Nokia N86 8MP had an estimated price of 375 euro, before taxes and subsidies. As usually though early adopters will have to part with slightly more than that as the lowest prices available for pre-orders online are along the lines of 425 euro (600 US dollars).
