AnonD-24259, 09 May 2013hey friend could u tell me one thing. The price of 808 slashed from 34500 to 17000 in India. I... moreYes you are correct in your observation. I was tracking 808 from last july when it got released in India for Rs 34000 and that was too costly for me to buy at that time and hence could not get that last year.
Then in January this year Nokia actually announced price cut from Rs 34000 to Rs 25000.
But now its price is again slashed to Rs 17000 couple of weeks back but this time Nokia hasn't made any announcement, may be due to the fact that 808 is not available on Nokia priority shops or on its online portal.
But at Rs 17000 its really a good steal, even if we forget pureview technology or 41MP sensor, than also its a good price just for phone and its other features.
Otherwise we all know at this price you will only get junkie Lagroid phones only and 808 is way ahead than those phones.

The price of 808 slashed from 34500 to 17000 in India. I got it for 25000 2 months ago and regret to some extent. Such a huge price drop in just one year after launch. Didn't get what nokia did with the monster 808. Stopping the manufacture of n8 and 808 for 17000. I shall have waited some time...!

Carol, 08 May 2013Hey, thank you for your word, but i'm just a normal guy. Like you here or anybody else in this... morecarol. How are you? I am facing some problem with my nokia 808.....would u like to tell me what is your facebook id?
12xu(George), 08 May 2013Good morning Carol and have a nice day :) Annotations like yours (especially the last one) ar... moreHey, glad to see at least some people who thinks like me:). Is very hard this days;)). Hail to Grece:)
we have Egyptian quote says "the words which comes from heart...goes to the others heart" and this How I can describe your great post you wrote today and I agree with you about every thing you said, may be I have some different thoughts about smartphone than you but the concept for you and me is one.
and this concept who makes me go to Symbian again, I swear that with the money I paid at my 808 I could get Xperia S, GS3, HTC one X and Lumia 920 (used), so why I just go for the Symbian again...
I need the hulk camera and media phone, The real mature OS...the ultimate media phone which supports every thing in every thing I could imagine + some extra spicy features like FM transmitter, HDMI, Usb On the go, Rich audio recording sound recorder...Symbian like old Eagle but still very strong and dominate the multitasking capability and no phone will ever give me all of this the way I liked and loved, keep supporting Carol you such kind and great guy.
I'm really happy with your beautiful words about my video, and about calling your friend...really this is the best part, special thanks and I hope you too go for small trip with your 808 to the abandoned homes let us unleash our imagination...thank you my friend :D ;)
hey guys where can I purchase wide angle and macro lense for my 808 in India ?
Would we see pureview with 41 mp sensor on windows OS this time, or if the wait is gonna get longer?
But now the pureview 808 price is getting very tempted here in India Rs 17000 (330$ appx) and if windows OS pureview is not released on May 14th Nokia event then I will go for Symbian pureview 808 and will save some money on it that will use for windows OS pureview whenever it is released.
Carol, 08 May 2013Hey, thank you for your word, but i'm just a normal guy. Like you here or anybody else in this... moreGood morning Carol and have a nice day :)
Annotations like yours (especially the last one) are indeed enjoyable because they put it in our mind some concerns that unfortunately too many people intentionally or unintentionally not even enter the trouble to think. Probably what's wrong is the operating system of the mind of certain people (as you said the magic words "advertising" - "manipulation" ) and not Symbian!
Glad to "see" you in the forum, take care :)))
NB: about the video of our friend Ziad Mohamed is very nice indeed and I agree completely with the associations you did. Sometimes we meet also at work (collect sample water from old wells for chemical analysis) small communities abandoned but some homes only, no more than ten or fifteen.
@ Ziad Mohamed very good video indeed liked it!!

Like you here or anybody else in this forum, or in this world:). I'm not that ”fantastic” or expert, i'm more a somebody who learned a system cause he had a chance to have and use symbian devices since the biggining of smartphones. And loved them all:). That's about it. Back then there was a purpose for smartphones, and that wasn't: how many games can be installed, or apps. Or how many cores do i have and how big the screen is. The purpose was more greater then this. You had a premium device with the fastest and real mobile operating system. You had a taskmanager (the most important future and the single one that really defines a smartphone). How can someone call this useless operating systems (out there today) ”smartphones” when they lack the only future that separates smartphones from futurephones?! The phone that ”changed” the era of smartphones was not having nothing new and more worst than that, it is a futurephone crap in front of symbian (not that today there were made to many changes to it). I'm talking about iphone, the most advertised ”smartphone” ever, more like futurephone (this is what manipulation ca do, is not about quality, is about how you sell it). No native apps, imposible to install apps and games, no taskmanager, no memory card, no nothing. A simple and locked pice of crap started the new era of touchscreens even though. Touchscreens are old story for nokia or sony and symbian. Anyway, back to the subject. So the purpose of the smartphones was to have more futures and capabilities. You could listen to music while taking photos, or surf the net. You could send a mail while chating. Futures futures futures. This is the real purpose of a smartphone. To have real everyday life useful futures in a small device. And believe, the so well adopted games were the last thing i ever thought about. And right now i think the same. There is no point in having need for speed in a phone, is useless and childish and has nothing to do with a purpose of a smartphone, or why were smartphones invented. What they should really do? The answer to this question stays in symbian and it's devices. What this devices can do are the only real everyday life need of a mature man. And camera is one of the most important...
I think that Lumia 720 is a great device, very beautiful and slim and WP 8 will be very smooth at your hand, so I think it's better to get the full experience of it and know the advantage and disadvantage so when you sold it and get the 808 pureview you will be happy switching to symbian and very satisfied
and before I send you this, if you are the camera guy, if you can sell the Lumia 720 and get the 808 pureview as quickly as you can so do it, cause my old lumia 800 makes me hate the life when I opened the camera :P
sorry for my bad English at the first post...I typed It very quickly.

To Carol and pureview_is_best
Thanks carol and I hope I always have chances like this to go with my 808 to new places, I hope you enjoyed with promise to enhance my videos the next time.
for Pureview_is best
I thank you so much for such kind words, I really appreciate every word my friend :D
Carol is very trusted and dear expert who makes me always feel safe about my Symbian phone and feel that he always on the duty for all users and definitely yes, Carol becomes very important part of Symbian community now days and a must exist one.
and about me I love Symbian, it's a real and fully features OS comparing to Bada, WP 7.8, Android ginger bread, IOS....but believe me I'm not a star and not anything actually comparing to any one, I'm a very normal guy who loves to see Carol and all guys give him Help, thanks again and BTW, I believe that If Nokia will make an android device, so it will be the most awesome android device ever cause of NOKIA ;)
Keep Pureviewing :D
