    The long-awaited Nokia N8 smartphone will be released in "just a few weeks" according to an interview with Dolby, courtesy of ElectricPig, just in time for Nokia World 2010.

    Dolby will be providing the first 'true surround sound' to a mainstream smartphone, with the Nokia N8's key feature of Dolby Digital Plus. Among other features, the smartphone will also include:

    Symbian^3 OS
    3.5-inch, 640x360 capacitive touchscreen
    12 megapixel camera with 1/1.83" sensor and xenon flash
    HDMI out
    802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
    Pentaband 3.5G radio

    While surround sound on a mobile phone sounds a little like lipstick on a pig, the N8 sports some very impressive features that hold up against even the top of the current smartphone crop. Christmas 2010 is going to be very interesting for the smartphone industry.
