Nokia 808 PureView in focus: Interview with D. Dinning - read the full textThe Nokia 808 PureView certainly made a splash at MWC 2012, pinning the company back on the cameraphone map in an extremely advantageous position. We had Nokia's Damian Dinning tell us more about his team's baby and how it came to be.

Simple widely used ideas like spinning while firing a rocket, have not allowed due to "prior art". All one has to do to get a patent for an idea that has been in the "public domain" is to describe the idea with different words. A very easy task to do in English.

If Nokia can seem to develop better cameras for its mobiles,why couldn"t they be able to Develop Symbia further as is its been about for ages,but then Nokia put a man in charge who didn"t seem to think about Nokias loyal users an had is own plan worked out with is old employees,who were struggling to compete in the Smartphone market,an then he knew that money would be invested into Nokia to save them,an on Febuary 11th 2011 is plan started by saying "Symbian is Dead" an then Nokia have really struggled to compete in the Smartphone market but were not bothered with Microsoft paying Nokia 250million dollars to pick Windows,an Mr Elop thought Windows would be succesful buts its not,an lost alot of Loyal Nokia users switching to Android,because Windows is to Restricted an more like copying the iPhone,hope the 808 shows to Nokia that Symbian is alot more popular than the Lumia phones

They have also just hit 13 million downloads a day and that number is rising! Vimeo is about to release their new app on the Nokia Store for example.

I absolutely love the fact that Nokia developed this. This phone is exactly what I've been hoping for - a supercamera smartphone. I'm just not looking forward to the price. :o

Thank you, Nokia. Even if your sales are being diminished by other platforms, this development is truly remarkable and you should consider yourselves pioneers and be proud!

please GSMArena review this phone with DSLRs as soon as possible.
And I say to the interviewer: 'you are professional, you have made an interview better than that on Nokia conversations so thanks to you and all Gsmarena team'.

Thirdly, there is nothing said about barrel distortion and some other important parameters. Fourthly it is to be produced in huge amount, thus, economy on scale.

"The [manufacturing] precision is ten times greater than with SLR [lenses]"

That does not mean the lens is ten times sharper. And how come the phone doesn't cost 10 000 euros then, if it has better optics than the sharpest SLR lenses? Because it has less glass than a SLR lens? There's no such thing as a free lunch.
