Nokia 808 PureView

Nokia just launched its feature phone, the Nokia 808  PureView at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona.  I think this is a very good move by Nokia trying to win back old fans like myself.  The most obvious of those features is the massive 41 megapixel sensor and Carl Zeiss lens and then turn it into a detailed 5 megapixel photo and just imagine one of your favorite iOS apps oh well, let's say Instgram - your Instagram stream will never be the same.  It also runs on the latest Symbian OS, Belle.

There are 5 things you need to know about the Nokia 808, PureView. Let me just sum it up here but you can read the full post from Nokia Connects here.

  1. It has a massive amount of pixels
  2. It has an amazing zoom
  3. It’s the best lowlight Nokia camera ever
  4. The wide angle is really wide
  5. It has incredibly striking bokeh

So how does PureView Imaging Technology works?  Read the documentation below and also this blog post  from AllThingsD.

Here are some sample photos straight from the Nokia 808 PureView.  You can download the sample photos here.

These are stunning photos given that they are shot from a camera phone.  The one thing that I am excited about PureView technology and anticipating greatly is when it makes its way to the Nokia Lumia family.  Windows Phone + PureView is just legen... wait for it...

When I tried the Nokia Lumia 800 last December, I know I'm on my way back to Nokia.  With this, Nokia has nailed that resolution.  ...dary!
