There is a new addition to the list of the best camera phones on the market: the Nokia N86. Released this week, the 5.2-ounce smartphone is packed with an 8-megapixel camera, a 2.6-inch display (but not a touchscreen), a dual LED flash and a 28 millimeter wide-angle Carl Zeiss lens lens. Fancy features include 20x digital zoom, autofocus, panorama mode, and red-eye reduction. Reviews have found the Nokia N86 to live up to its promise of quality photos, although, like most camera phones, it hasn't proved to take nighttime photos well.

However, this camera will certainly cost you a pretty penny, as it costs $500 unlocked. But with such a powerful point-and-shoot camera built-in, perhaps a potential buyer could just budget for a new phone and new camera model in one device. Would you be interested in buying this camera? What would you like to see added on to it?
