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....

And who are you to tell a complete stranger to change his user name to retain respect?

MP count doesn't matter at all and this make 808 Pureview even better. It's not about taking 41MP photos, it's all about pixels oversampling. An 8MP photo oversampled from a phone senzor of 41MP is 100 times(minimum) better than a 8MP photo taken with a phone senzor of maximum 8MP.

Those who are telling, better buy a DSLR. I am asking them, can u carry ur DSLR everytime u go, out of ur house. If u don't like the phone, don't buy it. Simple. It's a phone for camera enthusiasts with having a decent smartphone features. No smartphone camera(even the N8, ) does not come close to it. It's a fact. Even Gsmarena admit it.

the pureview means excellent pixel in all pixel of image.for example instead of one pixel in one point of one image there is 7 pixel in one point.usually the cameraphone of nokia is the best between the all phones.i can proved it beacause i compared the picture of nokia n8 with other phones.

> In reply to TheMan @ 2012-05-06 18:22 from fqfx - click to readyes u r right .. ONLY if it doesnt have:

1- Aperature f/2.4 !
2- Sensor Size 1/1.2" greater than all compact shot to shot digital cameras and some entry level dslr
3- ND filter
4- Nokia in-rich voice recording cd quality recording during videos
5- up to 12x lossless zoom and 4x loss less zoom in full HD mode
6- it takes readings from 7 pixels then downsampled to 1 giving u amazing pure noise free 5mp
7- Xenon flash with high aperature with marvelous sensor size !
so do u still think the tiny sensor 1/2.3" of the note can over ride this LOOOLL

Guess ur disappointed with ur Galaxy S3 having just tiny 8mp camera. U ppl had lot of expectations about s3 camera but it was shattered.
Nokia is a legend of mobile technology. It has 10000 patents which are being licensed to companies like apple,samsung,rim n others.
For ur info apple paid $600million to nokia for its Q1 iphone sales.
Nokia gets money for every phone sold in market
your samsung has least patents bcos its busy in copying others.

And change ur user name from samung fanboy pro if u want to retain ur respect..

You have to wonder if Nokia is its own worst enemy. The N9 and the Nokia 808 are two devices which thanks to their uniqueness have the highest selling potential. range. Yet both are not being sold in the worlds biggest market.

And you know what? Nokia agrees with you on MPs isn't everything theory and thats why they released a white paper explaining the true use of this insane amount of MPs.

Thank you Nokia.
For maintaining the legacy of the premier art of phone making and delivering the elite and classic products in this idiotic frenzy of cores and specs.
Thank you for not acquiring the OS that is a disgrace to the elite, audacious and gorgeous art of code building. Take away that disgraceful piece of coding away from others and there is nothing left to boast about.
Thank you, for not designing devices for human beings but designing devices to connect human beings.
Thankyou, for not connecting us with devices but connecting us with people.

Pureview it will give you bigger pics not better... MP doesn't have to do anything with pics quality and that is a fact!
