Nokia N8 Delayed

Despite the earlier plans of Nokia, its flagship smartphone Nokia N8 will not be available by the end of September. According to the latest news the device will not be released untill late October.

Nokia is saying that the pre-orders for the N8 blew their expectations, but that they have been forced to hold back the shipments of the device. In some markets, and that includes the United States, Nokia does confirm that by the end of September they had intended to deliver the N8, but that’s just not going to happen now. Nokia is currently in the processes of making sure that the user experience is the best it can be, and therefore making some final amends to make sure that happens.

Still, at least the delay is only a short one, and hopefully it won’t dampen the enthusiasm towards a phone

Check out the official statement:

The amount of preorders has exceeded our expectations and we are working hard to deliver the Nokia N8 to the market. In some markets, we had planned to start delivering the Nokia N8s to our pre-order customers by the end of September. To ensure a great user experience, we have decided to hold the shipments for a few weeks to do some final amends. We’re thrilled with the response that we’ve had to the Nokia N8 and assure everyone who’ve pre-ordered it already that it’ll be worth the wait! We expect consumers to get their Nokia N8s during October.
