Quick Note: Nokia PureView Will Get Windows Phone Treatment
March 5, 2012 3:35 PM
Gorgeous camera makes this a must-buy Windows Phone
Remember Finnish phonemaker Nokia Oyj.'s (
incredible "41 megapixel" PureView 808
? The phone was more than just hype -- it was an engineering marvel packing Carl Zeiss optics paired with a sensor that was four times the size of that found in the camera of Apple, Inc.'s traditionally well-regarded (
-- commonly viewed as an industry leader in image quality.
A smartphone to rival discrete digital cameras, the most baffling and disappointing aspect of the announcement was that the operating system involved was Symbian Belle,
a soon-to-be-defunct in-house design
But just as the collective Darth Vader-esque "NOOOO!!!" swept the smartphone community, Nokia has apparently come to its senses, revealing that a Windows Phone variant (in the Lumia family) is on its way.

Nokia SVP of Mobile Phones Jo Harlow broke the good news in an interview with Finnish newspaper
. Better still, other sources say the phone is likely destined to hit American shores in Windows Phone form.
Nokia already has a very attractive Windows Phone lineup emerging in the U.S., led by the
sleek and chic Lumia 900 LTE
. But those attractive models may pale in comparison to the Lumia PureView 808 whose awesome optics would make it the Windows Phone to get -- period -- and perhaps even the phone to get of
smartphone, for photo buffs.
The phone is expected to carry Microsoft's
, and according to Ms. Harlow (translated), "I can’t say precisely when [the Windows Phone variant will launch], but it will not take very long."

So it sounds like a buyers -- possibly U.S. buyers, may be able to get their greedy paws on this marvelous device before the end of the year.
Perhaps this will be the must-have differentiator to finally draw customers to the
impressive Windows Phone operating system
, which arguably leads Android and iOS in intuitive, attractive interface design, though
badly trailing those top players in sales
. Perhaps that
expensive Nokia partnership
is finally paying off, after all.
