It will be proposed from the month of may 2012 for €480 HT. Why propose a technology on Symbian and not on Windows Phone, Nokia now preferred? It seems that Symbian development was already well advanced, to maintain its marketing (a bit like the Nokia N9 under MeeGo).

But, has already promised Jo Harlow, the smartphone Nokia, technology PureView a vocation to be responsible on other platforms and terminals. It should also eventually find it on a smartphone Windows Phone later.

MaJ : on its stand, Nokia confirms that photos taken with the Nokia 808 PureView will not compete with the AFN of the market but highlights the possibilities of "Lossless" zoom (up to three times) within the image incorporated, to obtain a relatively clear picture of detail.

The zoom is done very simply by pressing on the area you want in the photo and demonstrations on a scale model reproducing a district of a city are rather convincing (the little visible character below is little more than 1 or 2 cm on the model).
