And if this isn't what Nokia has hyped it to be I'm sure I'll get the Ativ S. However, I hope to get a Lumia.

Hopefully Nokia match words with action this time.

But PureView is nice so we'll see.

Respect from the core of ma heart for both Nokia & Sammy.

I want Sammy to dominate the market of Android with its beast phones (including my new monster Note 2;) ) and at the same time give a good competition to Nokia on Win 8 platform.

Would love to see this respectful competition from the most respected brands.

No problem with this. Respectful and challenging all at once.

Nokia has a lot riding on WP 8. Bring it!! Love a good Smartphone war!!

If you just need an ordinary photo, 8MP is more than enough. If you love making photos, nothing can replace reflex cameras.

Kepler telescope uses 90 MP cameras to catch planets, why should I use a 41 MP camera to shoot myself drunk in random places?

At this point make a nice reflex camera instead a cameraphone and challenge Canon and Nikon

plannetery photos seriously u kiding but no one is harmed if a phone can take a pic nearly good as dig cam for price of one device and u missed the point of 41mg sensor it was to get better zoomed and low light pics which sucks in phones cameras with lot of noise PV has managed to reduced that

im not the richest person on earth so all i need is the best camera phone... and i hate bringing to device like dslr/digital camera and a phone..and the 808 pureview will just be right for me!!!

the pureview tech is one revolutionary technology in smartphone world!!!

even sony and samsung makes dslr/digi cam, they cant bring a very powerful cameraphone in their phone lines..

i want sony to return cybershot series.. a direct competitor of nokia camera phone! :P

and the 808 pureview is par to the canon 5D mark III and it even kick the butt of nikon,olympus and sony's slr!

Well obviously Nokia will need to bring their A+ plus next week. They are after all the top dog of WP.
I hope we get some new desings too. Not that the N9 hosuing isn't gorgoeus but ya... let it rest in piece.

Please enough of this Hot Air from Nokia. Samsung delivered yesterday so enough with the cheap talk and DELIVER because if you don't Nokia will be history.

I'm sure Nokia will strike with it's design. One things I don't understand though why are they after Samsung?
Is it for marketing purpose so that when people type Samsung name on Google, Nokia will appear along the Google results?

Nokia is obviously riding on Samsung's popularity.
