Over the last few days we’ve been spending time in Stuttgart visiting the Carl Zeiss factory. The purpose of our visit was to try out the Nokia 808 PureView. Nokia’s latest handset running Symbian and equipped with a 42-megapixel camera.
We were blown away by the 808 PureView, describing it as ‘smarter than your average phone and even smarter than your average camera.’
As well as trying the phone we had some hands-on time with some of the accessories, including the tripod mount, portable charger and hard case.
The tripod mount enables the Nokia 808 PureView to be used with any regular tripod. It holds the phone in a horizontal position for shooting blur-free movies and still photographs, a feature especially useful in low-light.
The Nokia 808 PureView’s on-board flash has twice the power of the Nokia N8. This will take its toll on the battery, so the colourful charger is portable enough to take anywhere, yet provides a full charge.
Finally there’s the hard case, protecting your 808 PureView.

The cable is removable and can charge any devcie with UBS charging, recharge the DC-16 using the standard USB ports. Available in pink, blue, black and white, it includes an LED indicator displaying the charging status.
