Nokia's head of imaging talks shop again, says Lumia 920 camera update is just one of many
Juha Alakarhu, in charge of Nokia's digital imaging, gave a lengthy interview at CES, commenting on many things around Nokia's groundbreaking mobile imaging achievements we witnessed last year, such as PureView Phase 1 in the Nokia 808 PureView, and Phase 2 in the Lumia 920.

Unfortunately, just like in the interview yesterday, he was light on details about the goods we can expect from PureView phones this year, as the competition is watching and listening, but he did say great things are coming, and, seeing the results so far, we are inclined to believe him.

One very important piece of news for Nokia Lumia 920 owners also came out of the interview - the update that fixes the somewhat "softish" photos coming out of a camera that is otherwise great in low light shots, will be "one of many," and PureView Phase 2, as present in the 920, will keep getting ironed out and improved.

I'm somewhat confused with your comment.
There're 2 parts...the first one tells me that you are skeptical about Nokia and the second tells me you are confident... Which one am i supposed to believe?? I can't decide which thumb to give you...haha...that's a joke.
All is well that satisfies the customers... Hope more updates come soon with major improvements.

don't expect much from a person who puts an "i" before a word and uses it as an screen name.

"People get confused with too many decimal places." Direct quote from Damian Dinning when I asked him about this.

The iPhones don't come out perfect. They get reboots (3Gs, 4s, 5s) after a while. The Samsung GS3, read about the phone conks out after a few months? That's what updates are for, man.
