Nokia acquiring imaging experts and intellectual property from Scalado
Troubled Nokia has some big changes going along the transformation route it has taken with tough job cuts and yet another reshuffle of its top management, but on the flipside of all the hardship, it has announced that it’s acquiring talent and intellectual property from Scalado for a better Windows Phone camera experience.

Nokia will acquire developers and imaging specialists to help it differentiate itself in the Windows Phone world, but also some of Scalado’s imaging technology and intellectual property.

Scalado is probably best known for its impressive image editing algorithms making possible such things as simply removing objects from photos, virtually without leaving a trace.

Scalado’s expertise seems a good match for Nokia’s groundbreaking PureView imaging technology, which now seems like one key advantage that could save the company in the future.

Right now, financial details of the deal are not available and its full extent is not clear. Scalado is also collaborating with RIM on integrating some of the imaging company’s features into BlackBerry 10 devices.

NOKIA is 5 years ahead of others in camera-in-phone tech... But 5 years behind almost all other things....

Actually, IMO, a Lumia with pureview is appealing.

if nokia thinks that it can make a comeback just on the basis of great cameraphones then nobody can save them from going bankrupt...
