May 27, 2010, By Atul Roach

The UK smartphone freaks are now excited about the arrival of the new Nokia flagship dubbed the Nokia N8 and now the good news for them is that the 3.5 inch AMOLED touchscreen display laden handset has been confirmed by Vodafone UK. With this Vodafone has become the first UK carrier to list the device and although a specific release date hasn’t been announced, Vodafone has listed it as coming soon.

Nokia N8 is not just the new Nokia flagship, it is also the first Nokia handset to feature Symbian^3, the open source version of the Symbian platform.

Nokia isn’t keen to jump on the Android bandwagon and therefore as an alternative, it has come up with the Symbian^3 laden N8. Other attractions on this smartphone include a whopping 12MP camera powered by Carl Zeiss optics. It is assisted by a Xenon flash and the camera is also capable of 720p HD video recording.

HSPA, Wi-Fi and A-GPS also make it to the standard features list while the integrated memory count sits at 16GB. What is more is that it’s performance is amazingly better than its predecessor, the N97, and that is again a big reason which makes the N8 an eagerly anticipated handset across the globe.
