Nokia N8 shipping details update
ESPOO, Finland – There have been a few stories this morning about the N8 availability which we feel need clarification. As we have previously said, we still expect to start the shipments by the end of the third quarter. As with every global launch, when the device reaches the hand of the customer will vary by market and operator.
We have received a record number of online pre-orders for the Nokia N8. We had targeted our online pre-order customers to receive their N8s by the end of September. As it can take time from the beginning of shipment to arriving at their doorstep, in full transparency, we have advised our pre-order customers that they should expect their new Nokia N8 in October.
Just a copy paste from NokiaConvBlog. So coming to the point, Nokia are committed to their launch. End of Q3 2010 is what they’ve announced and around October mid or end device would be in hands of those who have already pre-booked the device.
