Nokia 808 PureView in stock at Amazon
the phone would not be coming to the States. It wasn't that Nokia didn't feel that Americans were worthy of the new PureView technology, it was the Symbian OS that led to the decision. Americans do not have any loyalty to the OS, but they do love technology, especially consumer electronics. As soon as the device was announced, a cry came up in the U.S. for a Windows Phone, Lumia branded model with PureView. Nokia VP Richard Kerris says that is going to happen, but with U.S. smartphone fanatics demanding the Nokia 808 PureView, finally Nokia gave in. Of course, with RIM and Nokia competing to see whose stock drops to zero first, Nokia needs to collect coinage wherever it can, so at the end of the day it probably was not a hard decision to make.

Super! I'll either get one with my bonus this month or wait for a Lumia PureView. The low resolution on the 808 it would be a bit difficult in comparison to know best what's going on with the sensor

I say YES for PureView technology but say NO for Symbian and low specs.

Hmmm. So that's where all the Nokia 808 PureView stocks went from global distribution to Amazon.
