Nokia 808 PureView countdown timer goes live, T minus 108 hours

Nokia 808 PureView countdown timer goes live, T minus 108 hours
It looks like the Nokia 808 PureView is finally ready to hit the shelves, at least in some markets. If you visit, you will be greeted by a countdown timer suggesting that the smartphone will launch in India on June 5, or in approximately 108 hours as of this post. The web site seems legit, so those of you who are anticipating the 808 PureView launch can mark the date in your calendars.

Last time we checked, the Nokia 808 PureView was supposedly scheduled for a May release in Russia and India, with other markets to follow after that. In the U.K., however, the smartphone is not likely to be in stock before the second half of July. Eventually, U.S. consumers will be able to get one as well, but at full retail price.

UPDATE: Nope, this is when “Pre-Launch Activities” shall begin, as it was officially confirmed. Sorry, folks, no Nokia 808 PureView release next week.

Hey, I'm not dissing Nokia's Symbian at all, and I know nothing about it, so can you tell me why it's so good?

Rather than bringing a bulky camera and a phone, you can have them both in one small device. ^_^

got your point but you cant do all the things which a dslr camera can do.

You also can't get a dSLR that takes equivalent photos for the same price. And no dSLR makes phone calls or runs an operating system as robust as Symbian, so there's a lot more in fact that a dSLR can't do than it can do.

i know but my only complain is why Nokia is concentrating on their phones camera only !! apart from that camera it has nothing impressive.Look at the other companies!! in india it costs around rs.30000. with that price you can get almost a galaxy note or much better phone than 808.maybe an one s or think if your dad gives you that much money will you buy it or you will go for a phone which has 8 mp camera which produce an image enough to say excelent and along with that u will get more features and upgraded hardware and softwares. ps- I still use a nokia 5800.

Hope fully u dont know nothing and putting silly comments mate.Nokia have Free satnav which tells you speed camera and let you aware of your speed and the biggest of all its free in the whole world which your smart phones take internet data.Secondly it have FM Transmeter which allows you to play song in your mobile and you can listen from your FM radio either on your car or any other FM enable devices.Third it have USB on the Go which allows you to plug your usb mouse and use mobile like pc and u can plug your usb memory device and you can transfer or take any data.It have NFC which is more faster than Blue tooth and thousand of more but hopefully haters like you cant understand what is nokia making

you gotta be kidding me !!! you are talking about apps,internet data,FM,USB...LOL ...before buying a phone most of the people see the phone's Screen,CPU,GPU,Storage,Camera,Battery and THEN what were you talking about...I guess you live in india...fair enough bro...In India most of the people prefer Nokia because of the support they get...Listen mate once i used to hate Samsung and crazy fan of Nokia...Nokia is like a Legend but its becoming history now whereas they still exist in d market and thats what pissing me off.If you have a budget of small amount u shud go for Nokia...but if you have a big budget then u have to go for sam,Htc,moto or apple unless u prefer windows phone...bcz u dont have any other options :)

Nokia is the most successful company in India, wanna know the reason?? The reason because this is the only company in India which cares for it's users, and gets us every phone and updates early on time in contrast to the other parts of the world, but here other companies like Samsung , LG, HTC, Apple etc... have very bad support and only rarely some of the phone are launched by these companies in India Samsung only launched some smartphones last year in India, Galaxy S II, Note, R, Y, and that's all and even the update for the Samsung Galaxy S II in India came just a day before yesterday, that is very late in contrast wit the time in which other countries got the update It is very good to see that nokia is launching the phone first in India, it shows that how much they care for the Indian market and also no wonder as Nokia earns a lot of money from India; from every 10 people who have got mobile phones, 4 people have a Nokia in hand

Completely agree with my compatriot. In India we love nokia and heck why won't we, Timely updates, rock solid phones/customer care and Value for money. I have Galaxy S for which I never got an update(not even 2.3), so why would I buy any other galaxy. If I buy 808 I am sure for next year and Half i'll have updates coming in from Nokia. Nokia Rocks

I think that Samsung has launched the Gingerbread Update a very long time ago even in India, connect your phone to your Kies and then start the update.. I hope that i am not wrong..!! to confirm about that google it and problem solved

Yeah! N808 Pureview uses symbian belle and if u have got a Android then symbian is same but more beautiful, faster and more features. For more info search SYMBIAN BELLE

It does look pretty nice, but I like the look of ICS a little better. Have you seen how smooth and speedy the operations in ICS are? Then again, I've never had a Symbian, so I wouldn't know. :P Hope the PureView comes to the U.S. so I can try it out! :D

Nokia is the best mobile phone company. Who cares abt the dual core and quad core processor. I need a phone not a super fast computer. Tell me one thing which Iphone or any Samsung phone can do and Nokia phones can't. I just hope this time on 5h June Pureview does get launched. Have waited long enough.

To start with one: Skype video call is not possible in most of the top symbian and none of the lumia phones. It's a shame for nokia.

Get your info. right. Most of the top symbians can do skype calls and in lumia They can do but the app itself cannot run in background.

It's time get your info right. Most of the top symbians and all Lumias (except 900) doesn't have a front facing camera. How is video call possible without it? I didn't say they cannot do skype call but said video call skype or any.
