Nokia 808 PureView wins a photography award, while the Finns tease a PureView Lumia announcement

Nokia 808 PureView wins a photography award, while the Finns tease a PureView Lumia announcement
The Nokia 808 PureView imaging technology just won the European Mobile Photo Achievement Award, and the reasons are pretty self-explanatory, if you saw our grand smartphone camera comparison recently.

Nokia 808 PureView wins a photography award, while the Finns tease a PureView Lumia announcement
Naturally, all we want now for the pixel-perfect PureView camera tech is to see it in a smartphone with Windows Phone 8, be it of the Lumia line, or whatever Nokia decides to title its WP8 crop.

It turns out that we might have news about such a development sooner than we thought, judging from a tweeted hint by Nokia, and an interview with its camera guru Damian Dinning. First, see the tweet on the right, which says "keep your eyes and ears open in the next coming weeks", and bear in mind we have a huge Nokia/Microsoft event planned for September 5.

And now, Damian Dinning's words, translated from the interview with a Chinese WP-dedicated blog:


We'd wager to guess a lot of attention will go to the design of a PureView Lumia phone, since Nokia is perfectly aware it's the one that can really put its Windows Phone adventure on the map of consumers worldwide.

"Here are 5 devices that you might want to buy right now, but shouldn't" This is one of my reasons why I should wait.

What so special and good about this phone! Just the camera....! Outdated OS Low specs No Flash Bulky and looks are hideous and to many curves on the phone Arm 2 cpu. When we are in quad-core A9 1.5 Screen res 360+640 Hsda 14. When 21 is on the S3 14mm thick

Dude, the award is a photography award. So yeah all those negative specs you mentioned don't really matter. The 41MP monster on the back matters.

ur comment is out of context here no one ever posted its specs and OS here its "CAMERA" comparison and the bigger news they wanted to higlight .... it can be in winphone8 sooner then we expect if that happens what u complaining will be surely handled if u ever heard of Winphone8

You know, I think it'd be very informative if PhoneArena showed a drop down list or something of all the people that have put thumbs up and thumbs down for each comment. Okay, it's probably not going to happen, but at least it would probably encourage people be more careful with their thumbs down because we'd know who all the trolls are. Since the above option would essentially limit freedom of anonymous speech however, maybe a more feasible alternative for PhoneArena would be for the website to automatically flag a user that spams thumbs down; set a limit of how many consecutive thumbs down you can give, how many you can do on a single article, something like that.

this question targeted at me?? if so, no offence but why'd you want to know? anyway I agree with Penny, but it wouldn't happen though. besides I only commented to see how the sore-thumbs would react. it seems to me that they have no logical reason but just plain hate. Hate after reason, that's understandable, if they have a reason they'd state it and give a logical argument. Hate without reason...... Well i thought android users were open-minded, turns out they might not be any better than the narrow-minded iPeople. maybe even worse?
