Ok so the N97 is finally close to hitting the streets but truth be told, it’s not for everyone. Sure it’s sleek, well equipped and relatively powerful but not every S60 fan is looking for a QWERTY keypad and a touchscreen — or a $700 price tag. So what about the rest of you? The N97 breaks ground in that it’s Nokia’s first Nseries to sport a touchscreen and S60 5th Edition but the N86 8MP is a unique handset as well. Nokia, long known for producing amazing camera phones, has finally issued its first 8 megapixel-equipped handset in the N86… Oh, and it touts a few other cool new features as well. Now that the support pages are live, the N86 8MP should begin shipping within a few weeks with an expected retail price around $530. Anyone plan on snagging one?

Thanks, Buster!
