Today Nokia finally announced the start of the shipping of the highly awaited Nokia N86 8MP smartphone. Usually the model can be expected to actually hit the shelves within a week of such announcement so don't head for the store just yet.

The hotly anticipated Nokia N86 8MP is the first 8 megapixel cameraphone to sport a wide 28mm lens. There are also other camera goodies onboard such as a mechanical shutter and Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia N86 8MP is also the first device with variable aperture F2.4/F3.2/F4.8. That means the device does better in low light situations thanks to the wider aperture of F2.4 and takes sharper shots in bright daylight thanks to the F4.8 aperture value.

The other goodies on board the Nokia N86 8MP include 8GB of internal memory, a microSDHC card slot, a 2.6-inch AMOLED screen, FM transmitter, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity, a 3.5mm audio jack and TV out. There's also quad-band GSM and tri-band HSDPA support for a truly worldwide voice and data roaming.

When it was officially announced back in February the Nokia N86 8MP had an estimated price of 375 euro, before taxes and subsidies. As usually though early adopters will have to part with slightly more than that as the lowest prices available for pre-orders online are along the lines of 425 euro (600 US dollars).

8mp is so like 5 months ago :p
Yeah, thats why Apple are only now releasing a 3mp phone :p

Sure, there are 12 megapixel phones out there - but this is a Nokia - what it does might be a little old, but it is of a quality you have not experienced before.

The sample pictures I have seen of this phone, with its 28mm wide angle Carl Zeiss lens, is amazing. If the 3rd generation LED flash lives up to expectation then this might well be the phone that dethrones then N82 as king of the Nokia camera phones.

Of course you get a lot more than just a good camera with the N86. Its a dual slider with a beautiful 2.6" AMOLED screen, FM transmitter a nice ARM 11 434 MHz processor (more than enough for Symbian) and the whole bag of usual N-series goodies.
