"Things are about to change:" Nokia teasing the first PureView Windows Phone for September 5th?
posted by Victor H. / Aug 29, 2012, 5:33 AM
Now, that would be big - the Nokia 808 PureView has a mind-bogglingly good camera, and Nokia has already said it’s working on bringing that camera magic to Windows Phone. If it has indeed managed to do this in such short terms for the launch of Windows Phone 8, things might really start to change.
Check out the footage below and let us know what you think - does that look like footage from the first Nokia PureView Lumia?

A pureview lumia with 16MP sensor. That would be great. At least something new can beat my N8 except for it's successor. Thank you nokia. Now make a beastly phone to battle and make a huge comeback! :

16 cant make the much pureview because in 5 mp mode it would only make 3.4 pixels into one and even the 8mpx on the 808 does 5 pixels into one

OMG, I just died... Nokia you have secretly been my favorite and I think its time I came out the closet about my dirty little secret. Nokia I love you and I wanna spend my next 2 years with you on AT&T!!!! But you got some big shoes to fill. My Xperia S is broken again so now I have to use my back up phone which somehow is better than the Xperia S lol (HTC one X) and I will eagerly drop that behemoth of a phone for a Purview Nokia windows phone 8 device. Call me naive if you must but the heart wants what the heart wants....

how could we say that it is a video taken by pureview lumia?

We're just guessing here, but there are two things that led to this assumption. First, the video is pretty shaky, doesn't look like it's taken on a professional camera/camcorder. Second, it makes absolutely no sense for Nokia to show a girl riding a bicycle and... that's a commercial/teaser? The only thing in our view that would justify the existence of this video and actually make it somewhat meaningful, is that this is a sample. Otherwise.. well, it would just be a very awkward way of introducing the new Lumias.

Actually, I'm kind of looking at it this way: I don't think Nokia would release as a shining example of their excellence in mobile cameras a video that is as shaky as this one. It is almost too noticeable, as if they were trying to draw attention to it. Therefore, my guess would be that maybe they are saying that this is the way mobile cameras shake now, but they are going to "change" the way things work right now by introducing a superior camera with superior image stabilization. Just one of many guesses out there.

I don't think that would change anything. What Android needs to do is steal apple's thunder by announcing top-tier 2nd-Gen dual- and quad-core flagships from Sony, Moto, Samsung, HTC, and Pantech, with the tagline along the lines of "choice and power" or something. By November a good amount of upgradeable customers will likely have purchased the new iFail (September) or Windows Phone 8 (October). While being fashionably late to a party may mean you're best dressed, all the food and drink are gone, metaphorically speaking

This better include Rich Recording and a camera that easily beats my N8 in every aspect. My expectations are low for this to be honest though. Nokia has a knack for over selling and under delivering. I'm convinced that they don't know the WP software well enough yet to deliver a camera as good as the 808's or even N8, simply judging by how my 900 performs compared to those or even a Focus S. Time to get my eBay ad ready anyway though for my Lumia 900. Just in case Nokia delivers an 808 with WP on it.
