Nokia's 808 PureView Now On Sale In The U.S.: $700 For a 41MP Cameraphone

Nokia's got a lot of work ahead of it if it plans to regain a chunk of that marketshare it lost to Apple, Samsung and the rest of the Android gang over the past few years, but is this the phone to start that process? With the Lumia 900 already confirmed to be stuck forever as a pre-Windows Phone 8 device, the 808 PureView is something cut from a different cloth. It's a Symbian-based phone, and that's an operating system that's largely dated compared to the other modern options out there. But it does something that no other smartphone does, regardless of cost: shoots 41MP images through Carl Zeiss optics. If photos are your primary concern with a phone, it may be worth the $700 price tag. If so, it's available today from Amazon, marking its debut on sale in the United States. Pricy, no?

I don't know but if as said in the article pictures are a priority for you you cannot get much better than 41Mp and most especially with Carl Zeiss lenses that my friend is a beast camera or phone really.

I would bet if your main thing to get a phone was it's camera capabilities you might not really be so concerned what version of iOS, Android or WIndows Mobo your phone was running as long as it made calls and took incredible photos. The photo rez on this phone is higher than any digital camera I have seen period that is not Professional grade.  That's not even mentioning that it has lense mechanism made by a pure lens specialist!
