Nokia N8 Delayed Until October

Posted Sep 22, 2010

Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) was originally planning to launch the Nokia N8 by the end of this month, but it turns out that the phone has been pushed back to October so the company can make “some final amends.” The company is seeing a strong pre-order demand so it makes sense that the company is extremely concerned about its perfection. Below is the full statement about the delay:

“The amount of preorders has exceeded our expectations and we are working hard to deliver the Nokia N8 to the market. In some markets, we had planned to start delivering the Nokia N8s to our pre-order customers by the end of September. To ensure a great user experience, we have decided to hold the shipments for a few weeks to do some final amends. We’re thrilled with the response that we’ve had to the Nokia N8 and assure everyone who’ve pre-ordered it already that it’ll be worth the wait! We expect consumers to get their Nokia N8s during October.”
