In August of 2009, I found myself at the crossroads - to leave Nokia for iPhone or not? After weeks of thinking things over, iPhone 3GS, it was.
My iPhone’s turning three soon and I am seriously considering the idea of getting a new mobile device. I love Apple but to be honest, the iPhone 4S doesn’t appeal that much to me [sorry]. I don’t know. I guess I want something new for a change? [yup. That’s a question mark you’re seeing.] The Nokia Lumia 800 has been my first option not until I’ve heard about the amazing Nokia 808 PureView.
With a 41MP image quality Carl Zeiss lens, I’ve completely thought that it was a joke at first. Fortunately, I was wrong!

Earlier this year, I’ve read somewhere about Nokia 808 PureView not being released in Sweden. The news has indeed put a frown on my face. However, sometime in March, Nokia confirms that it is going to sold in Sweden. Yipee! As of the moment, there is no specific released date. Hopefully, soon… very soon!

Price: expected to be around 4,000 to 5,500 Swedish crowns [580 to 800 USD], depending on the operator, contract duration and mode of payment. I really look forward to getting a decent deal from my mobile operator. Wish I may, wish I might, get a good price that I want, oh night!
And for those saying that it does not have a front facing camera, actually it does --- with a 0.3MP which I think is fine for video calling/chatting purposes.
You bet. The Nokia 808 PureView is not a mobile phone with a cam. It’s a powerful camera that comes with a phone and more goodies! Brilliant, isn’t it?
