It'll be a few more weeks till the Nokia N8 ships out.

Originally slated for a late September release , Nokia says it will now ship the Nokia N8 in October, in order to make some "final amends" to the smartphone. The company didn't elaborate on what kind of changes it was making to the device, but said it was to ensure the best user experience.

The Nokia N8 will be the first smartphone to run the revamped Symbian 3 platform. Nokia said preorders for the N8, which began in mid-August, exceeded the company's expectations. Anyone out there preorder an N8?
