Nokia PureView 808 enters FCC, gives US tiny hope

Nokia PureView 808 enters FCC, gives US tiny hope - read the full textBack in March we learned Nokia PureView 808 won’t be coming to North America – understandable, given Nokia’s decision to pull off Symbian smartphones from this market. Since the N9 skipped the NA market, we had no reason to expect the Finns to have a sudden change of heart for the 808 PureView....

I was waiting for that phone to hit the market somi can get ma hands on it. Unfortunatly apple stole the idea " as expected " and released the iphine before 2 months of black box launch. So benq seimens simply dissappeared.

The bottom line Nokia copied the design as usual.

can you guys just quit the arguing about copying and shit?! Everyone copies everyone. The companies dont mind ( save for apple) you dont see RIM suing Nokia for "copying" their qwerty phone. you dont see nokia suing every other company for putting cameras into their phone.. there are different OSs out there, giving you the right to choose what would really suit you. if you like what you have, good, now stfu. if you dont, oh well, too bad, time to try something else.

1. apps and games (specialy intensive gpu games)
2. resolution.
3. new type of processor arm11 is armv6 type cpu it is a very old type of cpu its a 2002 cpu ) same features in 2002) symbian will fasten its development if new feautures in its processor will change. in the long run if new features was introduce in mobile symbian will die. and its main reason why nokia pureview had two GPU. the cpu chipset it self does not support it. if they want a good browsing performance on par with other high devices change in cpu is the answer. symbian browser performance is on par with low end android devices despite how light the os is.

I re-verified with the info i have and found this.

I just wanted to certify my accusations.

(1)Nokia copied BlackBerry.
A-Nokia E61, 10/2005
B-BlackBerry 6230 6/2003 "Older in 2½ years

*How funny Nokia fanboys mentioned Communicator! it has full qwerty and its rectangle which its on PCs for ages before Nokia existed!
I'm talking about the small square qwerty on BB which it is unique and Nokia simply stole the design as usual.

(2)Nokia copied Siemens SX1
A-Simenes SX1 8/2003
B-Nokia 6600 12/2003

*Look at the edges! complete copy for SX1 by putting buttons on the edges and in stealing the almond shape!

(3)Nokia copied Android buttonless style.
A-Nokia N9 7/2011
B-LG G-Slate 2/2011

*As you can see in G-Slate no physical buttons and released before N9 in 5 months so its clearly Nokia just ripped off the idea of no physical buttons and claimed it to them as usual!
And there are other tablets too released before N9 in a year but this tablet G-Slate "Optimus Pad 3D" i owned before N9 released.

(4)Nokia copied Android idea in naming OS by names
A-Android cupcake 1/5/2009
B-Symbian belle 1/6/2011
*Android is older in naming OS editions in 2 years and Nokia used to name their editions by numbers "9.1 9.3 S60".
Clearly Nokia ripped off the Google way in naming their OS while Nokia is in the market way before and they never though about it until Google came with it!

(5)Nokia copycats IPhone
A-Nokia X6 8GB 10/2010
B-IPhone 1/2001

*People say Nokia has phones with fixed internal storage but in same internal storage of IPhone (8-16-32) and screen size! I do not think so! Nokia failed to compete with Apple in honorable way and every sales expert will tell you Apple smoked Nokia before Android released.
So Nokia as usual used their cheap trick by copying the style as they did with BlackBerry and Siemens so they said what the heck will happen if we copy one more style.

#And about Camera MP you keep mentioning it
I was just saying if have 8MP camera which its equal "3264x2448 pixels" so 16MP has to be 8MP X 2 which equals "(3264x2448) X 2 = 6528x4896" because 16 is double the number 8.
So why this PureView called 41MP and it has "7152x5368 pixels"! which equals to 18MP

This is one Nokia I want.

What I want Nokia to do is launch a feature phone with this camera.

a simple non touch, non qwerty , candy bar device with great sharing features.

The underrated motorola zine zn5 was one such device. It had a Kodak branded camera

There is not a single phone in the market today that comes with a xenon flash.
