41mp sensor technology can be handled by android and iOS through proper engineering. And the tech people can do just that. What's keeping android developers and Apple company from having their own is the patent. 41mp sensor is patented by nokia.
Nokia is protected by this patent law. We all know about Apple suing nokia, samsung and many others because of patents. And Apple is also facing lawsuits from other parts of the world by these same companies.
The bottom line is business... Money... You do business, you make money.
We have to accept. Technology-wise, other manufacturers can. Business-wise, their hands are tied.
Nevertheless, I love both my SGS3 and N-808. But more on N-808. Cheers! (",)
Have a nice day, guys...
hello everyone.:) i bought my pureview 2 weeks before from a nokia shop based in suburbs in mumbai.. First impression its so heavy then i give it a go its just coz of camera but its very good built bright screen just loved the camera.. Have the habit of taking pic anywhere to show off what my nokia can do be it day or night.. I an totally in love with this phone.. Few days later was checking reviews bout this phone which bought me to a notice of purple tint....i thought my phone doesnt have that issue.. Suprise suprise after reading how to check finally i can make out my phone suffered from this issue.. Even i compare with my old nokia n8...which seems to produce perfect colors unlike my pv...called up nokia they said its a hardware issue and need to take my phone to ncc...was lucky to jump in the shop when there is a head of branch who take care for whole mumbai ncc was there and acknowledge the issue and said will repair and give within a week.:-( still waiting for that masterpiece.. Dont care about androids coz they are a chunk and battery eaters which i hate them for..i still trust nokia and i believe it should get sorted out soon.. Will post the response once i get my pv back.:-).
Always nokia rocks
Excellent that you can make video calls with 808,I have tested and works great both on N8 and 808.

RaMeez, 07 Aug 201241 Megapixel is really something ....but it could've been better if it didnt had symbian O/s!!
Only Symbian OS can handle the 41MP Sensor, DSP and Technology as of the moment. Android and iOS cannot currently use beyond 20MP sensor, nor can Windows 7.x allegedly handle the DSP.
PureView 41MP is going to take some time on other platforms, or probably even not in the nearest future. If you want PureView 41MP, then this is your only ticket, no ifs, no buts.

the reality about manipulation and soopid people...
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2012Expensiver than DSLR camera...
Absolutely not...How much is a 31MP sensor DSLR camera? $12,485.80 USD
How much is the Nokia 808 PureView? $700 USD
The Nokia 808 PureView is a phone, not a DSLR. DSLR is not compact, can't take calls, etc., but the Nokia 808 can, and also take pictures. Thanks for the comparison, anyway. :-)
They should have made the secondary camera 8MP, if the 1st is 41MP then why not...
If only this magnificent technology was enclosed within a modern smartphone... I'd buy it right there because there's simply no competition to this PureView tech. But... instead you end up with a 640x360 screen and Symbian OS. Pity.
Ideally this would be an Android device, with fully customized camera app from Nokia. With Android the company just takes the source code and makes all the adjustments they want. Now they are stuck with Windows Phone, which they can't modify directly to cater their needs. Pity the decisions like sticking to a particular OS are being made not by engineers but by top-level execs, who often don't know anything about the development.
This PureView technology is likely to be found in a WP 8 phone but what's worrying me is that it may be limited by Windows Phone OS. Or by Nokia itself - by design.
So for example we will get 20 MP sensor instead of 41 MP, so the oversampling will be limited, so the quality will be worse. Or they will cut some other features so the phone will be cheaper so it will sell "better"... But this would be wrong in my opinion, Nokia has the potential here to stand out from the crowd and should use it! There's no other phone like this and if people could buy a WP 8 phone with this tech that's a little bit more expensive or bulky than the other without PureView tech, they would buy it.
If only 808 was a modern smartphone also, it would sell like hotcakes. Now we have to wait and see.
