Wondering why Nokia chose the name "NOKIA BELLE" instead of "SYMBIAN BELLE" for this phone?
It's because Pureview 808 is so QT (kyut) as in CUTE!
The OS itself is built and being developed using QT same developing tool used on N9.
I think Nokia is moving on and letting go of Symbian's (the platform) past failure to the market. They don't want to retain the shame that the old SYMBIAN platform has brought to the brand (speaking of s60v5 and the late s^3). Instead they rebuilt and improved the platform(with symbian roots), using QT and incorporate most of the great things they've done from maemo and meego including symbian belle and made it into one amazing feature pack which is "NOKIA BELLE". (And maybe that's also the reason why SYMBIAN is now DEAD.)
But wait, it rose back from the dead. BELLE is a ZOMBIE?lol
With this kind of development, NOKIA can now buid a new UI experience including apps using QT. Just like what they've done with maemo and meego.
I personally still have high hopes with Nokia especially on what they are doing with their new platforms (not to mention WP8 in the near future). Belle is here, next updates should be more breath taking.
Nokia is becoming more QT(cute).
Sooner or later they will regain their throne and become The King again.
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2012this phone will be a failure..and nokia will fall flat on its facekkkkk you wish!
The processor is outdate 1 core only ? and front camera so lame. Btw Im very interested in this phone. looking foward till release date, i'll keep watching*bookmarked.
I love taking picture and this the only phone caught my attention after seeing it. Keep it up Nokia, Hopefully this will be great camera phone ever.
Nokia is still number 1 in terms of innovation. Other manufacturing phones are just copying,i bet this other phone manufacturers have headache and spend more money to hire some scientist and genius jerk out there on how to beat this beast.Congratulations Nokia
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2012this phone will be a failure..and nokia will fall flat on its facei love nokia 808 pure view 41mp camera OK it is a marvelous phone which i ever seen in my life this is the first time iam seeing this mobile
if you don't have the money to buy it means shut your mouth and sit down in the corner you fucker's
how many memory it consist? for about 1 minute for example?.. 38MP lol 1 minute is equals to 1gb?
Olawalex, 03 Apr 2012pls how much is Nokia N8 and Nokia 808
"price" or "currency"
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2012why put in 41 megapixel sensor then only produce 38 megapixel image. what's wrong with 41 mega... morewhy only 38MP and not 41MP? if you were to take a photo with the full sensor the photo's would be circular. so they crop the image 4:3 or 16:9.
Dark stallion, 03 Apr 2012Now a days nokia is rocking so Samsung should pack thier bags and quit the mobile making busin... moreYou are right dude. Samsung is nothing without Android. If Samsung think they can beat Nokia, they should do this with their own dumb Bada OS, like Nokia does with their own Symbian, Maemo and Meego OS.
Now a days nokia is rocking so Samsung should pack thier bags and quit the mobile making business and go back to thier AC making business!!!!
this phone will be a failure..and nokia will fall flat on its face
Once i get the phone then i can review, in the mean time i will not compair with others . So people relax till the release date .
[deleted post]lol, it is definately an 41mp sensor!! You should better read, than you would also know what oversampling means -> this is when you e.g. shoot an 5mp image (in the pureview mode) the 808 pureview is nevertheless taking a full resolution(!!) picture to take take the best pixel around of 7 (so you have there your 5mp shoot without noise)...
Vivin.N.L, 03 Apr 2012Its like we buy a 500GB hard disk but you can use only 483GB of it. Look here why it's a 41mp sensor (and shoots pictures with 34mp in 16:9mode and 38mp in 4:3mode): http://blog.gsmarena.com/the-amazing-science-behind-the-nokia-808s-mammoth-camera-sensor-explained/
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2012Again i ask, what are you getting here?? a smart phone with a camera or camera with an off th... moreHi mr ms anonymous. I guess u dont really see the POINTS. I own both galaxy s2 and a note now, and an n8 before. Though i prefer a device that rocks in all around features, its stil something worth keeping a phone that does better in taking pictures as its what im fond of, and that goes to a lot numbers of people, not just me. Thats what nokia myt be thnking, and it is there they plan to invest more, its their business after all... And i dont see the point of comparing it to dslrs since its a smartphone, a cameraphone, not a camera.. I hope you just dont look at the sun, but to the things you can see With it..
For the never-ending question about the nHD resolution because people don't bother searching, here is the primary reason why Nokia chose nHD: App Compatibility.
Most apps for Symbian developed in the past few years are optimized for nHD resolution. Honestly, I tried using an application optimized for lower-resolution on a higher resolution phone, and it got pixelated - a lot.
It is quite understandable to use this resolution to ensure maximum backward compatibility for old applications. Lower resolutions also consume less power. Although the pixel density may not be enough to make sure that individual pixels cannot be distinguished by the naked eye on close-up, I am sure at reading distance it won't be a problem. I used phones at that pixel density at reading distance, and I wasn't bothered at all. I pay a lot of attention to detail, but I didn't usually see individual pixels clearly unless I was really looking at them. And I doubt anyone would be looking for individual pixels every time they use their device.
