Yes, eight phonemes. That's one less than Nicole's six consonants & three vowels. But I seem to remember someone (Wasn't it Jacques Guy?) a few years back with a conlang of just three consonants and three vowels; indeed, if my memory serves me right, there were only three possible syllables: ka, zi, mu. So I'm sure how one classifies the phonemic inventory; as the vowels depend on the initial consonant and all syllables are open, I'd say that was only three phonemes.
