It has to be said that the awe-inspiring Nokia 808 PureView is more camera than phone. A small but weighty handset endowed with an incredible 41-megapixel image sensor, capable of up to 38-megapixel HDR stills and 1080p HD video at 30fps with Dolby certified audio sounds like a combination not to trifle with. In practise the PureView’s camera really is as good as they say (as you’ll find out in our review – coming soon), but there’s also the fact that it bears the rank of Nokia’s new Symbian flagship, an OS that no longer has a place in the company it previously relied on.
Many have been waiting with baited breath to get their hands on this influential device and the time has come for those people to grab their credit cards and head online. We’ve collated prices from the most popular online retailers currently offering the 808 PureView. Bearing in mind that Nokia is only offering these handsets unsubsidised, the pricing may feel rather steep for many of you, rivalling iPhone SIM-free pricing on the whole, but depending on how strong your desire is for this cameraphone king, it’s here, now and it’s waiting for your inner photographer to get creative.
