Nokia announced on Friday that it will bring the Nokia N86 8MP to its U.S. flagship stores in the coming weeks. The N86 will also be available for purchase online and go for pricey $558 unlocked.

First announced at GSMA 2009 , Nokia N86 features an 8-megapixel camera with a CMOS sensor, a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, 20x digital zoom, and other advanced camera functions. Nokia even claims that the smartphone will allow you to replace your point-and-shoot digital camera, but we'll see about that.

The North American version of the N86 will support U.S. 3G bands and will come preloaded with Ovi services, including Ovi Maps, N-Gage, and Ovi Files. You'll also be able to upload photos to social networking sites through Nokia's Share Online client. No word on exact availability date, but we'll let you know as soon as we do and get a review unit.
