Nokia promises more "cool" PureView surprises, to focus on imaging and navigation

Nokia promises more
Nokia's Chris Weber took to the airwaves at CES to talk a bit about the strategy going forward, and he said the company will focus on its key areas of differentiation - mobile imaging, carried with the PureView branding, and navigation with the Here mapping solution.

As for carrier relationships, the current focus is on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile in the US, and Nokia is gunning to offer WP handsets in all three price points on them. Mr Weber also talked the choice Nokia made with going Windows Phone on us:

Speaking of PureView stuff, a topic which excites us most certainly, in a separate interview Juha Alakarhu, head of imaging technologies at Nokia, sat at CES to say we should expect "very cool" stuff from the talented PureView team this year.

Amen to the three-year old getting a phone and snapping a good pic regardless of the conditions - Apple proved that simplicity and seemingly effortless great results delivered with consistency are the way to achieve mass appeal, and if Nokia manages to pull it off in the phone imaging department, it will have a niche for itself that will be really hard for anyone else to replicate.

damien dinning is a good mentor or leader for a good photography team. but I guess, he left his legacy by giving what the nokia photography team need to know. They are I think knowledgeable what damian wants to happen in the mobile photography.

Yeah sole didn't do a darn thing. Their cameras were no better than most of those on feature phones until the 4S, and arguably the 4. That was 2010. By the sake time we had numerous better phone cameras from Nokia, Motorola, HTC, Sony, Samsung, etc. @Daniel: Edit out or modify that statement to take out the apple reference. It is unnecessary and misleading.
