Touchscreen not your thing? QWERTY not your bag? It looks like the new kid on the block will soon have a cheaper, photo-centric neighbor as Nokia has just announced that the N86 8MP is now shipping globally. As for when it might touch down here in the US… Soon. The N86 8MP is two parts camera and one part smartphone, touting an 8 megapixel sensor, variable aperture, automatic motion blur reduction and half the processing time between snaps. It also sports 8GB of internal storage and up to an additional 16GB thanks to microSDHC support, ensuring your photos and videos have plenty of room to breathe. Pricing in the US has still not been revealed but the N86 8MP was announced at €375 so we should be looking somewhere just north of $500.
