Pre-orders for the Nokia 808 PureView in the UK reveal a $711 price tag

Pre-orders for the Nokia 808 PureView in the UK reveal a $711 price tag
Last time we heard about the Nokia 808 PureView, we reported that Nokia started accepting pre-orders in Europe – where it’s believed to arrive sometime in May. This time around, we’re getting word regarding its impending availability in the UK courtesy of mobile online retailer Clove UK.

Instead of the $785 cost associated with Nokia’s pre-order, Clove UK is only asking $711 (£449 excluding VAT) for its pre-orders. Although it’s a hairline less, it’s still one heavy investment that’s sure to drain a huge chunk of your pockets – then again, it does stand out immensely for its 41-megapixel camera. Sure, the Nokia Lumia 900 might be getting a lot more exposure right now, but if you’re more concerned about image quality with photos, you ought to check this baby out.

Just as a refresher if nothing but the Lumia 900 has gotten into your head, the Nokia 808 PureView features a 4” nHD (640 x 360) AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass, 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 41-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, DLNA, and a 1,400 mAh battery.

Pre-orders for the Nokia 808 PureView in the UK reveal a $711 price tag
Unfortunately, Clove UK doesn’t have a definitive release date for the Nokia 808 PureView. Nevertheless, it’ll more than likely arrive sometime in May as previous rumors have suggested.

Symbian is a more versatile OS than Android; there is more built-in functionality in Symbian/Nokia phones. Little details such as a more complete Bluetooth stack, better USB connectivity (especially with Nokia provided tools such as Multimedia Transfer, iSync plugin, etc etc), native WebDAV support for remote filesystem browsing, etc.

Then there is the fact that Nokia keeps producing the best cameras. For this reason alone, the only think that would make me trade in my current N8 would be this puppy.

Of course, with Elop having hijacked the company and turning it into one last-ditch futile marketing apparatus for Windows Phone, there is already a glut in new applications being developed. For instance, we don't see Angry Birds Space (yet? ever?). Even though Nokia themselves develop some of the best applications on the planet (think: Maps, Internet Radio, Public Transport, Situations...), this is not the plaform for app junkies anymore. Sad to say, even if I get the 808 (and it will be difficult here in the US; grey market/no warranty) it will likely be my last Symbian^H^H^H^H^H^H^H Nokia phone. :(

Question is, when "smartphone market" will catch Symbian in terms of functionality and battery effectivity.

Although that most of the diehard nokia fanboys have moved to the WP bandwagon, I'm glad to see that there're still some who are and will always defend the nearly dead symbian.

Symbian being discontinued by nokia doesn't make it any less functional. Infact, the are still working on it and rolling out more update.

I don't think most of nokia fans moved to WP. Many of them still can't live without much more open, battery effective and customizable Symbian (not saying that WP doesn't have it's own strenghts - i have both N8 and Lumia 800 so i can compare).

And you can also make calls, listen to music, browse the web. All that on your DSLR camera.

You got to love this baby.

None of my DSLRs (let alone my film SLRs) fit in my pocket, access the internet, or make phone calls.

Yea, still one of the most functional and open OS (together with Android), and most battery effective.
