Thanks to Eldar Murtazin we had our less-than-favorable first look at the Nokia N8 earlier this week and today Nokia has made the handset official. The N8 will be Nokia’s first Symbian^3 handset and will be the flagship for its new and improved Symbian OS. The Nokia N8 has a knock-out set of specs that include:

  • 3.5 inch capacitive multi-touch touchscreen with gesture support
  • Multiple homescreens with widget support
  • 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon Flash
  • HD recording and on-phone editing
  • Facebook and Twitter integration via homescreen widgets
  • HDMI support
  • 16GB on board storage
  • WebTV, Ovi Store
  • Ovi maps with walk and drive navigation
  • Symbian S^3
  • Anodized aluminum casing

Folks looking to get their hands on the new hotness from Nokia will have to exercise patience as the N8 is not slated to launch until Q3 2010. When it finally hits the retail shelves later this year, the N8 will debut in select global markets with a price tag of €370 ($494 USD).
