Nokia N8 delayed until October
Nokia has a lot riding on the N8. The flagship device, originally pegged for launch in September, will now be delayed until October so that Nokia can make some "final amends". The Finnish based manufacturer said in a statement that the number of pre-orders exceeded expectations, and to ensure a great user experience, the N8 will be held back for an October launch.

That is the bad news. In the same release, Nokia assures everyone that the final result will be worth the wait. And while some other reports claim that the handset won't be launched until November because of software problems, the word directly from the manufacturer seems less dire. The first device to run on Symbian^3, Nokia needs to have a problem-free launch for the N8 to be the huge success that the company is counting on. And with the largest pre-sales total in company history, the pressure is on Nokia to deliver a phone that works as expected. With this in mind, the delay seems like a conservative tactic just to make sure the "t's" are crossed and the "i's" are dotted.
