Nokia N86 On The Way to Stores


Commence your rejoicing, Nokia’s 8 megapixel upgrade to their popular N85 model is now shipping! The N86 was announced at MWC back in February, and has already enjoyed an imaging award thanks to its blur reduction, quick processing time, and low-light sensitivity. After passing through the FCC late last month, we were ready to receive Nokia’s bounty with open arms, but for those of you unfamiliar with the N86, here’s a quick spec run-down:

  • 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, dual LED flash
  • 8 GB internal memory with microSD memory card support
  • aGPS, FM transmitter, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth
  • 2.6″ AMOLED QVGA screen
  • Running S60 3rd. Edition
  • Bands:
    • WCDMA 900/1900/2100 (HSDPA) and EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WLAN
    • WCDMA 850/1900/2100 (HSDPA) and GSM 850/900/1800/1900, WLAN
    • WCDMA 900/1900/2100 (HSDPA) and EGSM 850/900/1800/1900

The N85 is a hot little number, and will provide a solid alternative to the equally awesome N97 which just hit flagship stores yesterday. Presumably those same stores will be getting the N86 in short order, and carriers will be stocking up over the next few weeks. Will one of these two phones have a chance at swaying folks who are too impatient to wait for the iPhone 3GS? You can get a closer look at the N86 here, or scope out the data sheet here.
