Nokia N8 Review
There has been a lot of rumors surrounding Nokia’s new smartphone, which looks like it will be named Nokia N8. It was suggested earlier that it could be called Nokia Vasco, but seems that this is not going to be the case.
The phone is going to be relesed on the third quarter of 2010. Nokia N8 can boast with cutting-edge hardware and the latest version of Symbian OS.
