Nokia's PureView Camera Technology Soon to Hit Lumia SeriesCategory: Mobile

The Nokia 808 PureView is no doubt a 41 MP technological mobile marvel that outperforms the optics of any other cameraphone out there, but it's simply held back by the underwhelmingly ancient Symbian OS. That may change sometime in the near future though, as Nokia's worldwide developer relations VP Richard Kerris hinted that Pureview technology will be coming to the Lumia series "very soon." This strategy almost echoes what the Finnish giant did previously with the MeeGo-based Nokia N9, where the company first introduced its gorgeous neon unibody design which we now prominently see in its current Windows Phone lineup. Assuming Pureview is seamlessly implemented into next range of Lumia phones, expect a lot of cameraphone afficionados to flock back to the house of Nokia. But if the vague "very soon" release date is too far-off for you, an unlocked AT&T / T-Mobile compatible Nokia 808 PureView is already available in Amazon for $699.
