    Default Nokia 808 pureview with 41MP camera and zeiss lense

    Alittle excessive? Perhaps but what isn't now a days?

    Several of today’s Android phones flare out on the back to accommodate an 8MP sensor for their rear-facing cameras. Nokia says go big or go home, cramming a 41MP sensor topped with Carl Zeiss optics into the Nokia 808 Pureview. There’s no interpolation here. At full resolution you’ll be grabbing photos that pack around 38 megapixels. By default, the 808 is scaled back to 5 megapixels so you don’t overload your storage while you casually snap away. Nokia is proudly showing off unprocessed, poster-sized prints created from pictures taken with the 808 PureView, and they’re reportedly quite stunning and almost completely noise-free. The sensor also pulls in a whole lot more light than its current competitors, thanks to an f/5.6 aperture. That also allows for faster shutter speeds — and less blurry action shots from your phone. The 808 runs Nokia’s Belle operating system and utilizes a 1.3GHz single-core processor paired with 512MB of RAM. That’s nowehere near what you’ll find in other phones launching at MWC 2012, but every mobile OS is different — and Belle will run happily on even less powerful hardware. The 360 x 640 display and sluggish software, however, have given some hands-on testers cause for concern. It looks likely that PureView will be making its way to Nokia’s other mobile platform, Windows Phone. According to the company, that’s something they consider “reasonable to expect,” and you have to think that the folks in Redmond would be pretty excited about a Windows Phone device hitting store shelves with an iPhone and Android-crushing 41MP camera on board.

    The 808 runs Nokia’s Belle operating system
    I stopped reading there.

    When are they going to admit, if it isn't Android/IOS/WP7, it's not worth the time any more.

    Why buy a brand new phone with a "dead" OS

    That being said, 41MP is impressive, although it seems a little like penis measuring at this point. I've seen shots from the new iPhone & Android phones and 8-12MPs seems to produce amazing photos considering they're coming from a phone

    Was discussed in the Nikon announcement thread in the photog section LOL.

    Anyway, the gist is that it's not really the 41MP that's impressive (in fact 41MP alone in a tiny sensor is really just downright stupid from a conventional point of view). It's what they do with it that's really innovative.
    You have a couple of photos that are great... you must be very good at photoshop!

    They can make it the best camera in the world, but if it sucks as a phone it's still going to be useless.

    Except many Nokia phones have always been awesome.
