So here we go, hope you like this summary of why we're looking forward to the Nokia 808 PureView so much.

PureView
PureView is the revolutionary new imaging technology developed by Nokia for the 808 PureView. Besides making extremely sharp pictures, this smartphone premieres Rich recording: the sound in your video promisses to be better than you've ever experienced.

For PureView, the especially developed chip combines all the visual information from several pixels into one, filtering all noise in the picture in the process. And when zooming, the camera zooms into part of the sensor itself, so your picture will always be true and pure. The 808 PureView is the first camera phone offering this technology, but more smartphones will follow in Nokia´s portfolio. Here you may find more about PureView technique

Nokia 808 PureView
The Nokia 808 PureView is not just a new cell phone, we feel it’s a revolutionary new compact camera. It’s the first device offering PureView technology and Rich recording for amazing audio quality.
And it has the famous Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash.

It´s the first compact camera enabling you to directly share your greater-than-ever mobile pictures with your social networks, not only over via WiFi but also over your mobile network. So you can check Facebook and Twitter on the road as well. And of course, you can make phone calls with it. Also, it will guide you during your trips with free Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive. Worldwide. On the road, the FM Radio keeps you informed. It's versatile and extremely multifunctional.

Nokia Belle
It’s not iOS. It’s not Android. It’s not even Windows Phone. So: what is it? Symbian used to be the leading platform for smartphones, supported by all important cell phone companies. Symbian is gone now, and Nokia recently turned it into “Nokia Belle”, making it easy to use on touchscreen devices.

True, it does not offer the amount of applications Android, iOS or even WP7 do. But it's a fast and stable OS, and the Nokia 808 PureView is not about a huge amount of apps and games: it´s all about great pictures, movies and sound quality. And it offers all the tools you need to share your passion for great pictures with your social networks.

Moreover, the battery of a device running on Nokia Belle usually lasts much longer on one charge than smartphones on the other important platforms. We´re not talking hours of difference, but days even – depending on your own use (your mileage may vary). That's another advantage to be cherished.

So there you have it, this is why many people look forward to this device so much. Like we do at the PureViewClub. You're welcome to share your thoughts on the Nokia 808 PureView as well! Below, or in our Forum.
