Final “amends” required before release.
Yesterday, Nokia issued a statement announcing that its much-awaited Symbian^3 smartphone N8 would be delayed for a “few weeks”. The Finnish company said it requires to make some “final amends” to the device before it is set off too launch. Here is a quote [thanks Engadget]:
“The amount of preorders has exceeded our expectations and we are working hard to deliver the Nokia N8 to the market. In some markets, we had planned to start delivering the Nokia N8s to our pre-order customers by the end of September. To ensure a great user experience, we have decided to hold the shipments for a few weeks to do some final amends. We’re thrilled with the response that we’ve had to the Nokia N8 and assure everyone who’ve pre-ordered it already that it’ll be worth the wait! We expect consumers to get their Nokia N8s during October.”
It is uncertain if the delay pertains to the UAE launch as well.
