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.

This phone will probably sell better than all of the WP7 phones from Nokia. The world wants this phone but Nokia is embarrassed to sell it because it will prove how wrong the Microsoft move was.

-only pitfall for this device is screen resolution and maybe OS(ive been using symbian before and i can definitely say its not that optimize for touch but that was long time ago)...everything is OK...maybe few more cool apps

> In reply to [deleted post]Well, I think you might be a bit over-exaggerating here regarding the X7 display... When I owned one and showed it to my friends, they couldn't actually tell that the display was low res until they reached the phone approximately 10cm from their nose!
Two of them have SGS II by the way...

Put this camera on a Lumia and I'm sold... I'd gladly give Winmo a go for a couple of years...

But as it stands, it's an amazing camera feature on a very poor phone...

I remember having an N93i! fabulous looking 'transformer' phone... but even then optical zoom wasn't that good...

I would have loved to see a full working optical zoom alongside this...

Isn't the screen resolution 640 x 480 or something? really poor resolution (surely a pin-sharp screen would have benefitted a camera phone like this...)

Sooooo close.. maybe next year the ultimate Windows camera phone?

I've been following the 808 coverage closely on the net and I have to say this is the best interview I've read so far. Thanks!

The best question would have been: "Do you have a patent for this?"
I doubt it. And I wonder what would have happened if Nokia would have gone the Android way.

I love symbian more than my girlfrnd. Only symbian knows what exactly is multitasking and resource optimization. Rest of the crowd is just small boys who dont know what to do that with that xtra cores

great interview GSMarena.. bravo!

You could tell that the 808 is something special.. Dinning won't be as excited about this, if he wasn't sure in the product.
