So it appears that the long wait will finally be over soon.
This morning, TechPinas received an invite from Nokia Philippines to attend the media unveiling of new smartphones by the company. Note that it's smartphones, with an S; So clearly, if Nokia N8 will be launched in this event, it won't be the ONLY phone hugging the spotlight. Hmm, I wonder which other smartphones will be unveiled.
This media premiere will be held sometime next week; I believe official market release of each device should happen a few days after that.
