Nokia 808 PureView wins Best New Mobile Handset award at Mobile World Congress 2012

It's an award that recognizes novelty and things we haven't previously seen, rather than what's already out there, therefore it is not very surprising that Nokia 808 PureView won the Best New Mobile Handset award at Mobile World Congress 2012...

I couldn't agree more about it winning. I hear alot of people bashing the camera talking about it will never replace a DSLR. We understand, but it is suppose to replace a basic point in shoot but deliver better quality. It doesn't even takes pictures at that Resolution it just uses the resolution for the lossless detail digital zoom. So so what if this phone has this flaw that you all blatantly searched for. It wasn't meant for the purpose you have in mind anyway....

It's high time for Nokia to quit the phone business and start developing digital cameras. LOL. Pure view 808 is a waste of money. Ages old ARM11 Processor and a dated OS. What's the point of buying this chunky little device? It dosen't look premium at all. No where near the N8's design. If you want a good cam then buy a digital SLR. HTC One X deserves the title.

Yeah, a good point and shoot camera with such a huge sensor would be a slap in the face to Olympus.

Can you tell me in which way Nokia Belle FP1 (present on 808) is outdated ? Actually this OS is able to run smoothly on 1.3 GHz ARM11 processor, unlike Android which needs at least dualcore CPU. This just proves how well Symbian is optimized. Argument about buying DSLR is just ridiculous. Are you going to run around 24h/7d with DSLR around your neck ? 99% of people just want small pocketable device, with as good quality as possible - and this is exactly what Nokia 808 offers. Also, tell me a single reason why HTC One X should get a title ? Hauwei managed to do the same and it's obvious they are improving themselves at much faster rate than HTC.

HTC did not invent anything, they just put all the parts that were available together.
