Nokia N96 goes on pre-order in UK

Nokia has set a date and price for its new N96 handset in the UK, months after its initial announcement in February.

Available on pre-order from the Nokia store, the handset that promises 16GB of internal storage and a 5-megapixel camera will be available to buy sim free for £535.

The company says the phones will be in stock on 24 September meaning you could have it by the end of the week, a week ahead of the October launch nationwide.

Nokia fans keen to get their hands on the new handset, that also comes with GPS and Wi-Fi, can opt to pay £9.99 to get an "Express 1-2 days" delivery.

The price, say Nokia includes 3 months Nokia Maps and an N-Gage game.
