Nokia 808 PureView gets a product page on U.S. site
The other day we told you about some teasers Nokia released that pointed toward a U.S. debut of the 808 PureView. It looks like that will, in fact, become a reality. Nokia’s U.S. website has been updated to feature a product page for the 808 PureView.

Interestingly, despite previous reports that claimed the Nokia 808 PureView would never makes its way to the states because of its Symbian operating system, this latest product page debunks all of those speculations. Unfortunately, there are no further details on pricing, launch date, or carrier availability. There have been previous rumors that if the device made its way stateside, it would be sold unlocked similar to the Nokia Lumia 800.

The device will be available in red or black and, of course, feature the drool-worthy 41-megapixel-sensor camera. We can’t wait to find out more about this release.

808 Pureview is not a true 41mp camera when comparing to a stand alone camera Pentax 645D Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) 40mp it will cost around $10,000. How much is 808 Pureview cost?

Wow, you're ignorant. Nokia has never said it is a true 41MP camera, just that it is rated that high due to how it takes photos and oversamples them. It's a phone with a better camera than most (maybe all) point and shots, and rivals some lower-end DSLRs

Oh god. Can't you even understand what you have said? It's a phone with a camera whose sensor has 41MP. Dude, you really need to read more about PureView before even coining it on a comment. It makes you look dumb.

I wonder if they will make any hardware changes to the US variant. The things that bother me are the low screen resolution and the processor, not Symbian.

I'd like that but it's unlikely. Too expensive to change it for one market, with it being small but with lots of justified hype

If it had better specs like screen resolution and speed i would consider getting it but just a camera cant be a selling point unless you're a photographer

It's good that people will have the option, but anybody who's at least somewhat serious about their phones won't even consider this as an viable option.

Plus, the other high-end handsets from Apple and Sammy, HTC on the Android end are getting closer to the bar set by Nokia. I wonder how well the photo sensors in the high-end handsets being sold December, 2012 will compare to the PureView? Good enough?

I'd say it'll be close enough but I doubt anybody is going to dethrone the pureview for quite a while. Just look at how long it took to start making cameras better than the N8. Manufacturers seem to be making a solid push to consistently improve on their cameras as it is an important feature when making any type of flagship phone. I'm also hoping they start taking a more serious look on the front-facing cameras as well to improve the image quality for video calling.
