Vodafone just loves showing off when it gets a new handset for its lineup. Recently we've seen registration pages appear on its site for HTC's Wildfire and Samsung's Galaxy S and Wave smartphones.

Today, it's the turn of the Nokia N8. The N8 is the Finnish giant's latest top of the range handset and features 720p HD video shooting, a 12-megapixel camera and runs on the new Symbian^3 operating system.

We told you recently that reports were suggesting a launch date of 24 August in Germany. Hopefully this registration page from Vodafone will mean we'll be getting the N8 even sooner. We'll confirm the exact launch date, as well as the pricing details as soon as they are known.
