Guys! Nokia 808 Pureview is now in Abuja, Nigeria. I saw it with my ery two eyes last Staurday here in Abuja. The colour is black. The price is N130,000 ($820 USD). I will get mine before the end of the week.
Jason, 02 Jul 2012I am glad that you like it so much pal.
I also wish to get one when i am eligible to renew ... morethe S3 is a perfect device by the way i used it for a couple of days .. but its perfect in what it excels as the internet browsing and social app.
on the other hand am into cameras more .., a kind of person who take lots of pics day and night and concerts and the S3 failed in that so much. its camera su cks and was designed for casual shooting and for people who dont mind Noisy blurred pics and distorted videos.
So be sure for what suits u more.
if u r into apps and browsing all the time and little camera go for the S3
if u r into Imaging and video recording zooming and little browsing get the 808
by the way the 808 do browse but not as fast as the S3
i use voice calls via skype, whatsapp, video calling via fring and faciante (facebook app) and twitter.
u wont find many other apps that do cross-platforms other than those so be careful what u choose.
Does this phone support a skype video call like the iphones and iphone 4S's? I like the specs of 808 but just want to know more if it supports skype because I'm now a heavy user of skype video calling. Pls.respond...
I bought the PureView after many thoughts & i must admit i as not sure if I should buy a Symbian powered device. Also, i had a feeling that the camera would be good, but should i take the gamble. I am so glad that I took the gamble & have chosen a winner...PureView exceeded all my expectations, its very fast,the screen is crispy - no missing the "super AMOLED", the sound quality is outstanding, the business feature are cool, it feel very solid in hand - top notch build quality, its not bulky as many think...in fact its the most comfortable in hand. Above all, the telephony is amazing...i guess thats what a phone is meant for. Top notch telephony... crisp & clear sound, very strong antennas, no signal loss, no call drop etc etc...This is one of the best phones available today ! NOKIA - A great job done after a long while. I'm sure you will bounce back...keep rocking. Love the 808 PureView !!! Bravo

I also wish to get one when i am eligible to renew my mobile contract with Starhub (One of Singapore Network Provider) on 29th July.
But too bad Starhub still do not and might not want to subsidize Nokia Pureview.
I am still wondering if i should get Samsung Galaxy S3 instead and sell it off and buy Nokia Pureview from Nokia store?
But not sure if i can really sell the galaxy s3 off at original price before subsidy after i bought it.
I am so sad and disappointed with Starhub, Singtel and M1. Singtel and M1 does subsidizes it at first but later Singtel only show "out of stock" and M1 completely take down the phone from it store.
AnonD-261, 01 Jul 2012Yes it can play flv format, and just in case I downloaded a mp4 file but changed the extension... moreThank you for answering my question about pureview being able to play flv.
Thats one of the reson i want to buy pureview.
Nokia for good
But m' still Waiting for Window phone 8 Nokia smartphone, which doesn't have OS Expiry Date (unlike Symbian OS).
To be frank, Lumia phones has 101 functional problems to scared away millions Nokia customers to other platforms.
mks, 28 Jun 2012Can pure view play flv fomat? :-) please reply. Anyone who has pure view please answer. T... moreYes it can play flv format, and just in case I downloaded a mp4 file but changed the extension to flv, I converted a video that was downloaded from Youtube and converted it to flv using Format Factory and then transferred it to the 808 and it worked.
My impressions after 3weeks of use:
1- Solid performance fluid fast smooth
2- The charger is the fastest on the market 1.4A charges the battery in about 1.5hours, my last s2 took 4hours for an example, the charger in 30minutes filles about Half of the battery.
3- Fastest image upload to facebook i've ever seen in no more than 20sec. over 3G
4- The camera is best in class from the majority of all point and shoot cameras in quality lowlight noise free zoom and at last image Size !
5- the pureview 5mp image takes about 800KB while the S2 takes 3.5MB while the Pureview quality is 10x times better !
6- Video recording is Superb the Nokia rich recording in concerts is amazing pure CD-Quality.
7- Very strong reception for network.., other samsung drop signals while the 808 gets 2 bars or even 3
8- Wifi reception is 3x stronger than my previous S2
9- In-call voice quality is Superb
i guess i've never been happier with a cellphone more than the 808 really the perfect choice for an outgoing person.
