they made this in 5 years without us knowing?! Hmm... I would love them so much if they actually worked on a hexacore 1080p HD device for the past years and we wouldn't know until Nokia Prodigy.
not that we need those specs, just that it would be truly "an amazing everyday"

actually, when it comes to rumors, i like it better on nokia. there are no leaks whatsoever. before they released the n9, we didn't expect nokia to create such a unique design, and we in the other hand didn't expect 41 MP on the pureview...
unlike apple and (maybe) samsung and others, rumors come out but some are usually false and we end up somehow disappointed.
more power to nokia!

Same here. I watch the Nokia Labs blog, and they sometimes give tantalizing little hints, but the PureView tech was kept under wraps, as it should be, and was why it was awarded so well. No one had any expectations, and so the bar was set very high with the release because of it

Damian D. said once that N8 was just a fracture what they are capable to:)

They're good, but I was expecting more of a top-tier compact camera, this doesn't match the qualities of the Canon S95 or S100, which are still the best in class. It's still the best phone camera in the market.

well in that case you have to put a gigantic sensor in the phone with all the heavy moblie hardware with battery too so it would become a brick in time yes u will get those things as well

I haven't seen a comparison between an 808 Pureview and an S95/S100 yet, so I will withhold judgement. I do own an S90 however, and that does take some fantastic photos for a point and shoot, but the 808 Pureview's pics (at least in samples, haven't handled one myself yet) seem to be better.

5 years behind could also describe the software running the 808 and the management running Nokia.

Considering Symbian is still (and has been) more capable than Windows Phone or iOS, two operating systems which have come out in the last 5 years, you could argue Nokia is 5 years (or more) ahead. If they had the hardware like Android does (multi-core, huge screens) then it might be a more relevant OS, only hobbled by its older framework and decreasing adoption rates for "prettier" OSes (though Belle has changed that part). I own a Symbian, a Windows Phone, and an Android, and the Symbian is the one I use for my personal daily-use phone; the other two are mostly for internet and work. That being said, if the 808's tech were on both a Symbian and a Windows Phone of equivalent hardware, and priced the same, it'd be a very very difficult choice. I'd want the Windows Phone for its ease of use and ability to do what I want without a problem or stutter, but I"d want the Symbian for its dedicated call/disconnect buttons, more capable OS, and the ease that comes from years of using the OS

Had Symbian Belle come out in 2009 instead of late 2011, the platform might have had a chance to catch up to the others. Not only do my wp7 running Focus S and Android GS2 blow my Belle running Nokia 700 away, so does the even older Palm Pre 2. Its old, slow and clunky, and the things it does that others don't, most users don't care about, part of the reason Palm and its true multitasking is also in the dustbin of history.

It's a nice phone but I don't like symbian is, so sad nokia used it in 808. Btw jeraldjamescapao are I a Filipino? Just asking. .. :-p

people calling Symbian outdated well maybe Nokia made the 808 run on Symbian because Symbian is the only OS that's capable of running the pureview technology
unlike other OSes and it's also such an open source and not a limited OS and it still does it's job as a phone

why is there no Windows 8- 41 megapixel smart phone around this is crazy because Windows is Nokia's main smart phone OS. Nokia I think is missing a great opportunity here.
