Nokia's N8 is now available for pre-order - for an eye-watering $549.

This is the first Symbian^3 powered handset, so there's bags of new features there for the hardcore geeks to play with. The N8 also has some nice bespoke features - a nice camera, a nice lens, the ability to record and edit HD video, 16GB of memory (yes, show me a handset that has that much other than the iPhone), and free turn-by-turn navigation, but that price is still really steep. If I were in the market for a handset, that price would cloud pretty much everything else about the handset.

The handset will ship at the end of September.
