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.
