Vodafone Gets Nokia N8 Exclusive

Vodafone has managed to convince Nokia to give it the exclusive on the forthcoming N8 smartphone in one colour only ... lime green.

Why Vodafone choose the green version rather than a more neutral colour like white, black or grey is something of a mystery.

Still, we'd expect O2 to opt for the blue colour, T-Mobile for the pink one and Orange for the eponymous colour should Nokia decide to sell the N8 in these colours.

The phone will be available towards the end of the year with an official launch in September 2010, possibly during Nokia World.

It will come with a Symbian^3 operating system, a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, Dolby Digital audio technology, a 12-megapixel camera, 16GB onboard memory, 720p video recording and a mini HDMI port.

Interested parties can preorder the phone at Vodafone here.
