Well, the nail-biting wait is no more, we have a new claimant for the best cameraphone category, and it is called the Nokia 808 PureView with 41MP camera, and the sensor is likely headed for a Windows Phone as well...

Nokia have never stopped ruling the mobile world, dude! They just took a break for a few years. Actually, in the near future the only competition of Nokia and WP will remain Apple. Even now, every other yellowish brand becomes faceless.

You should try Nokia Belle first, before commenting.

Dude don't you have a f*ckin brain !!! Can't you understand this bad ass phone is not about the OS, this is about the monster camera. The camera freaks would buy this anyhow, they won't care about the OS inside...

just because you don't like his opinion it doesn't mean you can be such a d**k. And yeah camera freaks would buy it but the sales aren't gonna be that badass because we are looking at a few people here.

if a Windows Phone Version of this comes out for Verizon (hopefully with Apollo) then i'll probably get it.

This camera sensor is unbelievable. Sony is a premium camera maker, with the greatest know how you can ask..yet here goes Finnish phone maker and turns everything upside down.

However ..all that this phone has, is the camera.
The rest is a joke compared to high end androids.
640x360 pixels on a four inch is a relic!
And a processor would be great two years ago.
Inferior phone

yeah 41MP run Nikon D800 run.
This is so sad, such a big camera run by crap OS and ruin by huge compression just as on N8, I also hope they chose the material right this time because N8 was bad nice phone but so slippery, I drop the phone more then any other. PLS Nokia put in user compression option.

Wooooaaah!!! Am I dreaming or what ? This is like out of this world. I know its not released yet but Nokia have set the bar too high for the others.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the design which is also quite brilliant. For me its a love at first sight.

I don't understand the negative comments on this news. These are the people who envy their smart phones because they got the most Mega Pixels out there and now they are bashing Nokia just because it would take their beloved phone maker a few years to catch up.

Seriously this is the biggest news at MWC so far, thank you Phone Arena.

nokia didnt just set the new bar.. they ripped the old one out, set it on fire, put it out by peeing on it, and then spraypainted directions to the new bar on it since its so far away.

wow. thats beyond my dreams of improved camera tech for a mere generational leap. I cant wait until this type of stuff gets to american WP7 sets. Thats going to make them extremely hard to resist.

Very good observation. I think some of these people dont even own a smartphone. ALl they seem to care about is dual core / quad core, high resolution display. I dont matter that actually android runs very well on single core cpu and there are few apps optimised for the multi cores anyway. Belle is very much improved over previous versions and will only get better in carla and donna.

All they want is the phone to be future proof, I dont know what is more future proof than these camera.

Guys have a look at these 2 uncompressed images from Nokia PureView.

Note: They are about 9 mb each so please be patient.

Hopefully it comes to WP in a better looking design WITH everything it currently has (HDMI, memory, Dolby, the mics it has), but dump that 4" display for a bigger one..

Despite the abuse Symbian takes it still a very mature OS... It would be hard to convice anyone to invest in one of these with a possible Windows version in the shadows...Especially with no proper guarantee of Symbian's future
