‘Exceptional high demand’ forces Nokia to open pre-books for its Symbian^3 device.

Press release:
Due to the exceptional high demand for the new Nokia N8 smartphone, Nokia has introduced pre-booked orders once again to ensure that consumers who want the N8 are able to get it as soon as it becomes available again in the market.

“The response to the Nokia N8 has been really overwhelming.  People are very excited about it, and due to the high demand, those who were not able to buy it immediately have to wait for new stock to come in.  We have introduced the pre-booking orders again for those who need to guarantee that they will be the first to own the N8 when it becomes available in the market again,” said Lee Northmore, Head of Retail, Nokia Lower Gulf.

The Nokia N8 introduces a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and a large sensor that rivals those found in compact digital cameras. Additionally, the Nokia N8 offers the ability to make HD-quality videos and edit them with an intuitive built-in editing suite. Doubling as a portable entertainment center, people can enjoy HD-quality video with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound by plugging into their home theatre system. The Nokia N8 enables access to Web TV services that deliver programs, news and entertainment from channels like CNN, E! Entertainment, Paramount and National Geographic.

Powering the Nokia N8 is Symbian ^ 3, the latest edition of the world’s most used smartphone software, which introduces several major advances, including support for gestures such as multi touch, flick scrolling and pinch-zoom. The Nokia N8 also offers multiple, personalizeable homescreens which can be loaded with apps and widgets. The new 2D and 3D graphics architecture in the platform takes full advantage of the Nokia N8’s hardware acceletration to deliver a faster and more responsive user interface. Symbian ^ 3 also raises the bar in performance by delivering greater memory management allowing more applications to run parallel for a faster multi-tasking experience.
