Nokia N8 Available For Preorder On T-Mobile UK

Nokia's flagship smartphone, the N8, has been spotted on T-Mobile UK with a placeholder page and a registration form for those looking to get an early start.

Vodafone was the other UK mobile phone operator to have listed the N8 as a soon to come model nearly two months ago now but we've yet to see it in flesh.

The phone is likely to run on Symbian^3 rather than on Meego (as some have posited), a 12-megapixel camera, a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, an accelerometer, HDMI, Wi-Fi, a proximity sensor and the ability to record 720p HD video.

Oddly enough, we've heard that it will be powered by a last generation ARM v6 (AKA ARM11) processor running at 680MHz, which would be strange given that the N900, which was launched last year, ran on an ARM Cortex A8 (ARM v7-based).

We expect that other mobile operators will soon start taking preorders on the handset and that it will be available from £35 per month on a two year contract, which would put it on the same level as the iPhone 3GS and around £10 more than the HTC Desire.
