Nokia says "third quarter of 2006", which means some time in July / August / September.

You'll get a first clue about it being released when they remove the "coming soon" label on the phone list:,,73,00.html

After that it's usually another few weeks before it makes it into the shops.

Yes, it does have a mechanical shutter, here's the official specs:
