All mobile phone-loving eyes may be on Barcelona, where Mobile World Congress is currently taking place, but we've just spotted some breaking news from Singapore. Nokia's Far East showcase is showing off none other than an 8-megapixel camera phone: the Nokia N86.

Nate Lanxon and Andrew Lim, our men on the show floor in Spain, will be seeking out a hands-on opportunity with the N86 quicker than you can say " Sony Ericsson Idou ." In the meantime, we'll share some leaked specs with you. It's a slider phone with a 2.6-inch OLED screen, 8GB of onboard memory, micro-USB and microSD, and integration with Nokia's new Ovi app store .

It includes a 3.5mm headphone jack--hurray!--but the camera is the feature we're most interested in. A Carl Zeiss lens with autofocus and shutter capable of snapping at 1/1,000 sec is supported in low light by a dual-LED flash. Crave isn't sold on the idea of pictures captured on an image sensor the size of a backstage buffet during New York fashion week, but what do we know--the kids are bound to love it.
