Dead man walking: Nokia brings 41-megapixel 808 PureView Symbian phone to U.S.

Nokia 808 PureView Release Date

Nokia on Tuesday announced that its “unique” 808 PureView smartphone will soon launch in the United States. Nokia’s new smartphone is indeed unique in a number of ways: it’s the first Nokia phone to use a 41-megapixel “PureView” camera that oversamples pixels and combines up to seven pixels at a time to create one “PurePixel,” which the company says helps to eliminate noise. The device is also unique because it is powered by the Symbian operating system, which is currently in the midst of a long, drawn-out walk down the green mile, having been replaced by Windows Phone. Nokia 808 PureView preorders will be available from Amazon starting next week, and the device will cost $699 with no service contract. The smartphone will operate on both AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S., though data speeds will be limited to 2G on T-Mobile’s network.
