looking at the specs it looks quite good, only downside is that they are using a rather out dated android platform, (nuggat) where they could of used a more uptodate version to boost the phones credibility in the market and push it against HTC's and Blackbery's
Nokia just doesn't do it for me anymore though I would like to try one instore and get a feel for it. At least it's android now so it could be a good seller, many people are still loyal to the brand.
Eh...outdated? It comes with the latest version of Nougat and will be one of the first devices outside of the original Pixel and Nexus devices to get Oreo. HTC and Blackberry's are on Nougat and will remain so for some time. If you were talking about Marshmallow or Lollipop you'd have a point. But Nougat? Not a valid criticism.
According to this article it looks as if O2 won't be stocking it ...
The Nokia 8 is available for preorder now from Nokia.com, EE, Carphone Warehouse and Virgin, and will be available to buy in the UK on 13 September from Carphone Warehouse, EE, Virgin, Amazon, John Lewis and a range of high-street and online retailers.
Though as said, only @Chris_K can confirm.Though they will be a little 'late to the party' as it's been available since September....
