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.
“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
