Nokia has announced their brand new mobile phone handset, the new Nokia N86 which comes with 8 Megapixel camera for the first time. Nokia’s best mobile till now had 5MegaPixel camera (maximum), and even the much awaited mobile Nokia N97 is a 5megapixal camera too. I was wondering myself that when Nokia is going to realize that it is lacking behind with the camera in their mobile phones. Companies like Samsung were releasing phone after phone with cameras more than 6MP. It is supposed to be announced in MWC09.

    I really like the 8 pixel camera and so long supported music playing time. Although I think this phone is kinda thicker than it should be. :)

    Thanks for sharing cool info. I wonder how much it will be priced…
