Nokia N8 pre-orders are now live for the US market - September bound
Missing out on all of the summer festivities we've witnessed thus far, which can be seen either as a good or bad thing, the Nokia N8 is finally showing itself to US consumers thanks to pre-orders going live. When you think about it, having a summer launch would've placed the Symbian^3 powered device in a predicament since it would've placed itself in some heated competition between some of the top tiered devices out there. Even though it'll be the first device in the US market to boast a 12-megapixel camera, some may be more curious to experience its new and revamped platform experience – which is being garnered as being a reboot for their long time Symbian platform. In addition, the Nokia N8 features a 3.5” AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels, HD video recording, HDMI port, Xenon flash, Wi-Fi, GPS, 16GB of storage, video calling camera, and of course Ovi Maps with free navigation. If all of this sounds appealing to you, then you can probably be the first on your block to own one by simply placing a pre-order through their web site. However, it won't ship until late September, but at least it'll be in time for the new school year.

yes, this phone can run both T-mobile's or AT&T's 3G, because all the UMTS 850/900/1700/1900/2100 frequency are in one device. However, you are right, T-mobile's 3G speed is way faster than AT&T, so get this phone working with T-mobile will be your right choice.

Now let's talk about this, AT&T, what's on your mind? Your speed is slower than T-mobile, and you are asking for higher price for the plan? Is it becuase of you got better nice looking phones? No, there are so many unlock phone out there, and they are better looking than yours. People can just get unlock phones, like nokia N8, and use with T-mobile. Drop down your price for the plan, otherwise, everybody is going to leave you, and going to T-mobile. Remember guys, i am talking about GSM carriers, don't get verizon involve in this topic.

I’ll wait till some user reviews are out before I think about this one. I don’t give a crap what some website reviewer who spent a half hour with it has to say. I want to hear from people who have used it in real life/real time. I read enough user forums to get information closer to the truth on any particular item than any reviewer can ever give. But i’ll just say for now, an unlocked phone capable of picking up both T-Mobile and AT&T North American 3G Signals is pretty tasty. And if I like the phone and decide to pick it up, I'll still buy it unlocked regardless of whether it is subsidized or not. $@!% the subsidized phones and the rip-off contracts!
