Nokia's super camera-phone comes to India

New Delhi, June 14, 2012— Nokia has brought its latest smartphone -- Nokia 808 PureView—to India, a phone that is more camera than communication. With a 41 megapixel sensor, Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia’s own Pure View technology, the 808 seems to be pushing the imaging experience as its USP -- together with Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby headphones technology to beef up the audio side. These Dolby technologies enable cinematic 5.1 surround sound for music and movies.

The Nokia 808 PureView promises to makes it possible for anyone to capture professional looking images in any conditions. Says Vipul Mehrotra, Director and Head of smart devices, Nokia India: “What started off with a simple objective to create the most advanced imaging device, the Nokia 808 PureView has evolved into something extremely revolutionary. We are proud of what we have jointly created, world’s first super camera phone.”

The camera phone also includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom and the world’s first use of Nokia Rich Recording. Rich Recording enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality, previously only possible with external microphones.

The Nokia 808 PureView will be available across Nokia retail outlets for Rs. 33,899.

However we have received mailers from offering the phone online for Rs 30,995.

The phone was first launch this year at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and this was our story at the time Analysts are puzzled that Nokia would use the less popular Symbian OS for this phone rather than Windows to which it has moved many recent handsets.
