Read your article... bought the phone....very happy. Very nice article...the ending made me want to cry.
I'm an owner of 808 with FP 2. I'm very satisfied with this phone. Before I intended to buy 4S or Note 2. 4S Camera disappointed me and Note 2 the usability too complex. I had N8 before. So 808 its a great Upgrade. Thanks Nokia!

below link is the user reviews from the owner of 808PV:
Whats the point of having the best camera on the worst operating system known to man?
Its like having a Lancia Delta Thema (Prone to Rust) in an Amazon Rain Forest!!!
Pity this great PureView technology, even if incorporated into WP 8 phones, will be kind of destroyed because of the lack of proper support from the Windows Phone operating system. And instead of a 41 MP sensor we will probably see something like a 21 MP.
Sticking to WP 8 ONLY was a big mistake. Compare for example Nokia N9 with Lumia 800 - the N9 is superior almost in every aspect, including camera features. The explanation is simple: Nokia could adjust MeeGo in N9 in-house, to their needs, they had access to the source code, they could do everything with it. Now they are Microsoft-dependent, that's what it is.
The workflow for Nokia is now like this:
Nokia has an idea --> Nokia has to KINDLY ask M$ to implement it --> M$ implements this or NOT (like for example they quite surely won't support 41MP cameras in their WP 8 - a feature that "outdated" Symbian does support) --> Nokia can or can't work further with the feature.
Compare this to having access to the source code like for example MeeGo or Android. WP8 = fail for Nokia.
Could you do a shootout amongst Nokia 808 Pureview, Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S 3, HTC One X, Sony Xperia S and a Canon DSLR.
The battery is to small - I hope Nokia puts something serious into their next PureView phone.
When will the manufacturers learn that users want good battery life? I don't care if the phone is 1,5 mm thinner, I prefer better battery life to it. But HTC, Samsung, Nokia - they won't learn.
I am a very satisfied 808 user the best ever! Could anybody be so kind as to inform me how the slide show works up to now I was unable to switch it on.
this is the first Nokia phone ever that impressed me with one and only 1 feature... the "STILL CAMERA" performance. nothing else.. Stills are really awesome.... but the cam drains a huge amount f battery though .... At least a 2500 mAH battery was due for this... really poor on battery backup..
A few clarifications u ppl aren't aware of and making an illogical hell out of here...
1. NFC: Samsung D500E(way back in 2004) was the first NFC equipped mobile the world saw.
2. Symbian started off as a joint work between Sony Ericsson, Nokia, NTT DOCOMO and Symbian itself, with Symbian, NTT and SE being the top contributors to the OS arch. Wat Nokia did was only design its S60 UX before it bought Symbian in 2008. Symbian still continued to be an open source platform, but the interest of others started rapidly dropping. So, now Nokia became the major contributor to Symbian's code, since it then possessed the development resources for both the Symbian OS core and the user interface.
By 5 April 2011, Nokia released Symbian under a new license and converted to a proprietary model as opposed to an open source project.
And the present, Accenture is taking care of Symbian till 2016, Nokia has already washed its hands off and by 2016 Symbian would be a completely gone-off object....

The Android so called ecosystem is over rated, and the iphone is too expensive. I dont waste my time playing games all day and dont use facebook or other other social network that runs your life. Great mobile and will get it.
