Recently, the Nokia N8 has started becoming available for pre-orders in countries such as Italy, German etc. Now we have good news about the launch of the Nokia N8 in India.

We have news that the Nokia N8 will be available in India within 4 weeks. This has been confirmed officially according to a source.

It is said to be launching at a price of 22,000 Indian Rupees which maybe before subsidies and taxes. The colours confirmed are black, green and silver.

The handset is also expected to be made available as pre-order to customers very soon.

We also expect the Nokia N8 to be available in other countries such as Singapore, Malaysia and the Middle East region at around the same time as India.

UPDATE 1 : Nokia India’s official twitter account is hinting about a Early September launch.

UPDATE 2: We spoke to Nokia India and they say it will take longer than 4 weeks to arrive.

Thanks Gaurav

      Everything is connected to everything. I mean human beings, their actions and consequences.
      Nokia’s new CEO hails from Microsoft — a notorious failure at mobile phones.
      With the departure of Olli Anssi Vanjoki and Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, besides losing its Finnish character will Nokia fade into oblivion too? What with the market pressure from Android and iOS?
      What do you feel?

    I think this phone is going to revive Nokia in the smartphone market. also the 12 mega pixel option is great. This might a game changer.

    • Ram

      I agree with your view.
      This phone has many good things going for it.

      The 12 megapixel sensor is only one of those things.
      Just to recapitulate:

      01. Carl Zeiss optics lens with autofocus, 12 megapixel 1/1.83” sensor size
      02. Xenon flash
      03. 720p HD video recording @ 25 frames per sec.

      19. Proximity sensor for auto turn-off
      20. Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate
      21. Body made of solid aluminum block in variety of body colors

      As a long time fan of Nokia, I wish them very well. Wish they regain their mindshare and value share, vis-à-vis Apple and Google, at the high profit-margin top end of the smartphone market.

    Hi I am Amit, Please let me know when Nokia N8 will be avaialable in delhi.i am also intrested in HTC Legend,Kindly suggest me which one is best.

    • Jijo George

      I had an inclination towards Legend but it doesn’t have a front camera, and nokia made me used to its front cam which i use often in FRING hence N8 was a better option.

    Friends:
    My view is that:

    * Manufacturers should not artificially inflate demand by over-hype, delays and short-supply, followed by premium pricing.

    * New products should flood the retail stores and sustain market acceptance or rejection based on their own merits/demerits.

    * Pre-booking forces customers to commit money based on advertisements, the blogosphere and even market hype which in some cases could be no more than vaporware.

    What do you feel?
    Do you support the pre-booking initiative of phone manufacturers?
    Am I missing something?

  • Amit

    Hi Ram,

    Today i have called to many Nokia dealer for pre-booking and also know the actual price of Nokia N8.The price is approximate 25-26 thousands in all shops in delhi and noida.Please suggest me where we can get the good price of N8.
