So? Don't buy it. Innovation doesn't need to stop just because you're satisfied

if apple would have presented something like that and a Z1 equivalent, everybody in the conference room would have went berserk and because of the excitement even shi* themselves... but yea no excitement at all.. it was a boring Sony presentation Japanese style .. sad :(

This is stupid. You already have a camera on your phone that should cover 90% of your everyday usage with acceptable quality, and if you want more, you can get a cheap but effective zoom/macro/wide lens off ebay. To buy these expensive lenses you then need to get out of your bag, get out of it's case, get your phone out of your pocket, attach the two together, unlock your phone, turn on the lens, turn on lens app then shoot is way too much hassle. Both just using your phone or just using a compact camera could do it MUCH faster and more conveniently, and if they are not quite enough, then DSLR is your answer not these expensive toys. You can get the PureView 808 for $500 for crying out loud!

You get the Pureview 808 then what? $500 for a dead-weight Symbian phone which is not even "smart" to be called as "smartphone"?

It's a lot smarter than a $500 lens HAHA.

sorry Nokia we will miss you really. no other company can innovate camera on a smartphone. every challenger brings a bulky Lens like galaxy zoom and Sony z1.

I totally agree. NOKIA innovates the camera smartphone technology both on paper and hardware sides.

Does this take retard Sony SD cards only? Hate them Sony pro duo/psvita card.. Its like Sony only wants you to use their products.

Its pretty cool but not the price.. Most I'll pay for top of line is 300$ for this..

Would like to slap this on the note 3 :D

a fool and his money are soon separated

imagine the bulk this thing adds

people say that nokia phones are bricks with humps but competitors have yet to reach the level of nokia

plus this thing cost more than the og 808 pureview....
