Nokia names N8 release date, pricing

Much in demand, apparently

Nokia's N8 smartphone will go on sale at the end of this month priced at £429 for the SIM-free version, the Finnish phone giant said today.

The Pamela Anderson-promoted handset will arrive in the "last week of September" - presumably Monday the 27th - at Nokia's online store, before appearing on carriers and retailers websites - all the usual suspects, in point of fact - and shop shelves on 1 October.

The "much-anticipated" N8 promises "flick scrolling and pinch-to-zoom, plus a faster and more responsive user interface" - so iPhone-style operation, in other words.

It also has a 12Mp camera capable of recording HD video. It has HDMI output.
