Nokia 808 PureView hitting shelves this month, Nokia and Carl Zeiss to extend cameraphone partnership
Nokia just sent us two press releases - one that the Nokia 808 PureView handset will be reaching the retail shelves this month for all of you eager to buy the best cameraphone out there, and the other that it is continuing its collaboration with the German optics maker Carl Zeiss.

The 808 PureView surely made a splash at the MWC expo not long ago, after it became clear what groundbreaking for a cameraphone technology the Finns have crammed in the 41MP sensor inside it. The gigantic 1/1.2" sensor allows for 4X lossless zoom, superior low-light photography, and 1080p video recording, accompanied by the Nokia Rich Recording enhanced stereo audio.

In the next piece of good news, both Nokia and Carl Zeiss issued statements that they have signed an extension of the 7-year collaboration between the two companies, which brought around some of the best cameraphones out there. The best part is that Nokia is planning to use the PureView technology in future phones, which we hope to come soon in the form of Windows Phone 8 devices.

Similar here, except I'll just buy it full price instead of with a new contract. It's replacing my C7 Astound

this shows that nokia's windows 8 handsets will be able to distintively rule above other windows 8 handsets by samsung and upcoming LG and Sony windows 8 phones. Samsung might rule in the android enviornment but nokia is starting to dominate early over windows phone. Nokia FTW!

You’re wrong. I love Nokia from day one and I still a strong supporter of Nokia but look at their result all these years how much have they improve in catching up with the rest of the OS and others phone maker. What can Nokia 808 bring about???
Can they turn the company around???
Think about it! How many serious photographer will buy this phone and how many Smartphone users will buy this phone? Neither here or there..... frustrated.
