Nokia N86 camera phone official in Canada
Rogers this morning claimed the title of first North American carrier to pick up the Nokia N86 8MP. Already on display for a few days, the phone is one of the first more quality-focused camera phones and has a variable aperture and high shutter speed that often aren't included on phones. A flash, dedicated camera controls on the two-way slider and an OLED display help refine the final shot further still.
The Rogers edition supports HSPA-based 3G on North American networks but is otherwise very similar to the European version, which also brings GPS, Wi-Fi and 8GB of internal memory for guaranteed storage. In Canadian guise, the N86 sells for $100 on a three-year contract with a data plan and should be available today in a dark indigo blue.
