Nokia N8 confirmed for August....in Germany

Nokia's latest flagship handset, the Nokia N8 is due to be released in Germany on 24 August, with the price being about 370 euros. It's going to be on sale via Amazon Germany, so you could order one from there, although we're hopeful that a UK release date will be around the same time.

The N8 can shoot 720p HD video, via its 12-megapixel camera and runs the new Symbian^3 operating system.

When we got our paws on an N8, earlier this month, the Nokia bods wouldn't let us turn it on to see the new OS in action as it was unfinished. However, we did take lots of pictures of the handset, so take a look to see if you like its style.

We'll bring you the official UK release date and details as soon as we have them. If you're too impatient to wait then you could kill 34 minutes of the wait by listening to the all new Pocket-lint Podcast. Clearly, we don't mind a bit of shameless self-promotion.
