Nikon has claimed that it's not worried
by the new Nokia 808 Pureview
smartphone, which features a 41
million pixel camera and Carl Zeiss
lens, instead claiming that it is still
growing in a shrinking market.
Speaking to TechRadar, Jeremy Gilbert,
UK marketing manager for Nikon UK,
said "As long as people come into
photography, then that's all that
"We're not thinking too hard about it, if
we started worrying what the mobile
phone industry was doing then that
would complicate matters."
Last year, the Nikon Coolpix S3100 was
the best-selling compact camera in
Europe, while earlier in the year James
Loader, product manager for Coolpix
claimed that Nikon had yet to feel the
bite from the rise of smartphones.
The news comes after it was revealed
that compact camera sales were down
30% in 2011, when compared with
"We're still growing in a declining
market," Gilbert said, "We're still
building our proportion of the market."
Gilbert also said that Nikon was the
top-seller of compact cameras during
February 2012, knocking the previous
leader, Fuji, off the top spot.
"Our L series [Nikon's budget range] is
doing extremely well, and we have
worked hard to get a much broader
variety of cameras in supermarkets to

cameraphone and one of Nikon's
Ghost, 09 Mar 2012Camera is hot in this model.ok but do you think left is ok?why Nokia dont make a phone with du... moreandroid requires high specs to be able to run smoothly/properly its because its an inefficiently designed OS, mainly because its rather new, especially when compared to Symbian; we can use the same apps on Belle that you use on Gingerbread/ICS without issue so what does that tell you about androids inefficiency?
my N8 with 680mhz and 256mb ram can run Belle smoothly the 808 has 2X (double) the N8s specs which is more than enough for Belle far more its overkill what that means though is the 808 is able to upgrade to future iterations of Symbian without any worry
mvrck, 09 Mar 2012why is nokia going back to stone age when it comes to battery..?because their stone age battery lasts longer than your android device
If Nokia wants to return to its former glory it has to create a revolution not evolve. Ok here it created a hype with 41MP but for what? Cameras are not the issue for smart phones anymore. They have the chance now as Apple have stalled too. Its evident that the saturation point has been reached.We have to admit it that the "new iPad" is not what was expected. Only a small evolution from the previous one. I do not know what the next generation iPhone will be but i believe Nokia has to act now. Personally the worst decision that Nokia have taken is to create a partnership with Micro$oft. Well only time will prove me and many others right about this stupid decision. IF Nokia wont take the chance now and create the impact needed, its going to be doomed .... and fast.
[deleted post]wht performance u need tell us then we think dual core need or not
its very good and its camera is awesome but other things a similar to other high tec cell phones..
[deleted post]Wake up ,android needs 4Ghz 8 core 25000 Mhz battery 6 Gb ram & 5 more years to have a 41 MP CAMERA . While belle only 1.3 single core 512 ram to use a 41 MP CAMERA .
