if its not megapixels that count, then why did they opt for 41 mp in the 808 ?
would have rather gone with 12mp..y get r hopes so high by sayin that PV will b available in wp8..

I have never been a smart phone Camera freak I like to take pictures with a for real cameras like Nikon SLR's I use not add on cameras. do not put this smart phones camera down until the Pro's review it. PureView is about image processing if Nokia's People have got it right then 8 megapixels will be all you need for a great snapshot

I was an early adopter of the Lumia 800 and suffered 8 months of grief, as it took a series of software updates before the phone finally achieved decent battery life, included the marquee Nokia software and could do wifi tethering. At the end of all that, it was finally a pretty decent phone and then I lost the damn thing. All the talk about Pureview got me thinking that I would buy another Lumia despite my lousy experience.... but if it turns out to be an 8MP camera then forget about it. With Nokia and WP8, you're getting a slick OS and pretty nice hardware but also sacrificing a lot in terms of apps to choose from. To compensate, there needs to be a proposition like low price or awesome camera spec. 8MP just doesn't cut it, no matter how great the tweaks and algorithms.

When you say "people" I assume you are talking about the people who read and comment on blogs like this, you do realize the those people are an incredibly small fraction of all the people who actually buy a smartphone or will buy one. I have found that a good portion of the people that actually own a smartphone do not even know what a megapixel is let alone how many there particular phone has.

I'm disappointed about the pureless view 8MP, but I'll probably get the new Lumia as I'm a complete sucker for the pretty colors...: )

now this guy again trying to calm us down like he did when nokia released all the S^3 phones without AUTOFOCUS except for the N8, trying to explain that "we dont need" that feature, f**k you, we(the consumer) are the people who decides what we want to pay for, not you nor even nokia, nokia should know WE want a ridiculous large camera with pureview, and dont say "hey but the phone would be bulky/fat" liar there are 16mp phones (like the titan 2) with nearly the same thickness of the lumia 900, how much can add a 21mp sensor?

nokia this is your last chance, you CANNOT disappoint us

Some might be interested in the Camera on Windows 8,but its the Functions that need to Improved to make consumers invest into buying them,like Bluetooth Sending an Recieving an the use of micro sd cards on Windows 8,as its got no chance competiting with the Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 5,if these are not made available

i just wish that it will be 21MP... nokia is being blind again... yes to us it doesnt need so much pixels but to the consumers eyes, pixels matters... thats why they bought DigiCam and DSLR that has millions of pixels on it!!!

but if it wont be par to 808 pureview's camera that is really groundbreaking, then consumers might think that nokia isnt serious about the game.. they need to bring the pureview tech to lumia in order to survive and they need to make it par and matches the camera lens of 808 pureview...
