Symbian 3 polishes up the OS that was so smart on the Nokia N95, but soon felt out of date on the Nokia N97, adding more intuitive touchscreen gestures that iPhone users already know and love -- multi-touch support, flick scrolling and pinch to zoom.

The N8 will drop in the UK this autumn for around €370 (£320) SIM-free.
