Damn!! If Lumia comes with PureView in next 2 quarters I'll be so mad at myself for not waiting long enough :X.. Just got me a Lumia 800 n it has awesome written all over it. UI is freaking fluid...

Im pretty sure Lumia PureView will not be ready before 2013.

Yup...!!! this is 2012 not 80's or 90's.
A phone with a thickness of 18mm would be a total faliure in these days...
anything more than 10mm is thick.
On one side where other companies like sony, samsung, apple, htc, lg, motorola are going for better cameras while maintaining the slim waistline, this stupid nokia is continuously increasing thickness of phones

You do realize to fit that large of a sensor requires extra room, right? Its the same reason DSLRs don't fit in your pocket like a $100 point and shoot does. The tech will eventually slim down as all tech does, but considering just how much they fit in a relatively small area, I'm impressed. I'd have one and not care about the slight bulge because I know I have the best camera phone in the world, period.

First of all, Nokia 808 is 13.9mm thick. Another thing is that it's much more comfortable and fits much better in hand than those super-thin devices.
What's the point of thin, but so wide device, that u can't comfortably use it with one hand ? Good for kids (games, movies) maybe. Not for serious use though.
Some of my friends who have SGS2 or iP4/4S are complaining how fragile their devices are while taking photos. They're so thin u can't hold them properly.

it's 18mm thick at the camera end... which is enough to completely ruin it's overall dimensions

just imagine how it would feel to hold a >4 inch screen phone with 18mm bulk in hands...

As the article refers to future Windows Phones, there would be a choice of screen sizes. The 808 PureView's screen is 4", plenty sizeable. It's a full half inch larger than an iphone's. As for bulk, I've been hearing the 808 is decently balanced and with the curved bulge is less noticeable than the setup on the N8 with its stand off bulge. Good cameras require space. Eventually the camera module will get smaller with the same quality, as more R&D goes towards it instead of being a side project

Once again, it's 13.9mm thick. And it's much more comfortable to hold it than say SGS2, not even talking about SGS3. I already had 808 prototype in my hands 2 months ago, and it's on heavier side, but fits perfectly in hand.

They need to have the pureview WP phone ready for the launch of WP8. What a great launch device for the new OS that would be. 41mpx pureview, 4.3 inch 720p screen 1.5gig ram, A15 dual core, and a 2000mah battery good for 2 days, and W8.
That would turn a lot of heads in microsofts direction

Lol remix, I would be all over that device, but I don't think that's going to happen. They probably will have the dual core, up to 720p screens, and pureview technology, but it will probably be 12-15 MP, 1 GB ram, 1600-1800 mah battery.
