Back at the end of February we let you guys and gals in on the possibly gimmick/possibly game changing phone from Nokia known as the Nokia 808 PureView. What made this phone special wasn’t the general specs, those are slightly below par for today’s phones. It was actually the 41 MP camera. As was mentioned in our previous article, “The 808 PureView does contain Carl Zeiss optics which are a step up and when combined with the Nokia’s oversampling technology you are supposed to end up with a clean, crisp image. The PureView technology is to provide 3x lossless zoom for stills, and 4x zoom in full HD 1080p and for 6x lossless zoom for 720p HD video.”
The 808 PureView has received “multiple awards, including Best Mobile Device at Mobile World Congress 2012, as well as an award for Best Imaging Innovation for 2012 from the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).” According to Jo Harlow, the Head of Smart Devices at Nokia, ”PureView has completely raised the bar on imaging performance for the whole smartphone industry – and Nokia is not stopping here,” “We’re going to carry on developing PureView for our future smartphones in ways that will again revolutionize the imaging experience.”
As we alluded to in our earlier post the device is slated to be released to select markets in May. These select markets will be in Russia and India. There is no mention of when we will see the device here in the States.
I still pose the question to our readers, “Is this a gimmick or a game changer?” Let us know below.
Until next time.
