A camera phone with insane camera that blows every other camera phone (including compact camera) out of the water. I would probably run and line up to get this phone but since it runs on Symbian, a dying OS, I rather wait for one that comes with Windows Phone.

[size=150]Nokia sets a new industry standard with the first in a range of high end experiences based on exclusive Nokia PureView imaging technologies.[/size]

Barcelona, Spain - Nokia today ushered in a new era in high-end smartphone imaging with the Nokia 808 PureView. This is the first smartphone to feature Nokia PureView imaging technologies, bringing together high resolution sensors, exclusive Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia developed algorithms, which will support new high-end imaging experiences for future Nokia products.
The Nokia 808 PureView features a large, high-resolution 41 megapixel sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology. At standard resolutions (2/3, 5 and 8 megapixels) this means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture seven pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable. At high-resolution (38 megapixel maximum) it means the ability to capture an image, then zoom, reframe, crop and resize afterwards to expose previously unseen levels of details. With superior low-light performance and the ability to save in compact file sizes for sharing in email, MMS, and on social networks, the Nokia 808 PureView makes it possible for anyone to capture professional looking images in any conditions.

In addition to superior still imaging technology, the Nokia 808 PureView, also includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom and the world’s first use of Nokia Rich Recording. Rich Recording enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality, previously only possible with external microphones. The Nokia 808 PureView also features exclusive Dolby Headphone technology, transforming stereo content into a personal surround sound experience over any headphones and Dolby Digital Plus for 5.1 channel surround sound playback.

“Nokia PureView imaging technology sets a new industry standard by whatever measure you use,” said Jo Harlow, executive vice president of Nokia Smart Devices. “People will inevitably focus on the 41 megapixel sensor, but the real quantum leap is how the pixels are used to deliver breath-taking image quality at any resolution and the freedom it provides to choose the story you want to tell.”

I’m pretty sure if some smart dude wants to,
they can probably ROOT it to android or some other more popular OS…

41 Megapixel…wow…

Even if can ‘root’, it would be pointless as Android/WP/iOS running on the Nokia 808 would not be able to run the camera unit properly.

Think of it like running Windows 7 OS on a desktop build in 2001. While you can run Windows 7 OS, you might not be able to run the graphic/sound/network because the lack of proper driver support.

i’m just watched this Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone (preview) suddenly Nokia 808 Pureview with 41 Megapixel camera phone! omg! :lol:

true enough…

basically useless

41MP with those crappy optics???..I never lol’d so hard
oh and how many shots can you take before the memory is full?..If I am not mistaken it would be around 10 only

10? Per pic the size can be roughly 10-15MB. If you have any sort of math skill at all, you would know that it can store more than 10 pics.

Crappy optics? You never heard of Carl Zeiss optics?

Come on, learn to think before you talk. You only make yourself look like a fool for spouting nonsense comment. :roll:

I have to give it a thumbs up for the ‘Lossless’ digital zoom due to the MegaPixel digital cropping.

But i’m skeptical about the lens and sensor. Well it’s a Carl Zeiss :slight_smile: Have to wait for proper review of both pictures and videos from the phone.

Remember MP does not mean much in camera’s. Bigger MP does not mean better quality. Have to consider the lens, sensor and imaging processor.

@sedative
Nokia says that the compression is very good so it won’t take up so much space.

True. So far you can get f/2.0 on HTC One X and HTC One S, they even have a dedicated Imaging Processor. But the sample photos i’ve seen online so far not that impressive. We shall wait for the retail unit in April :wink:
