Nokia and bring PureView stateside, but the Nokia 808 PureView will still be saddled with Symbian OS

When Nokia pulled the wraps off the 808 PureView back in February, a lot of mobile phone users were interested in the phone and its groundbreaking camera. The phone boasts a 41-megapixel camera sensor making it more like a digital camera that can make calls than a smartphone with an integrated camera.
The big letdown of the announcement was certainly that the smartphone would be running the Symbian OS. Right on the heels of the operating system as the biggest letdown in the announcement of the 808 PureView was that the phone would only come to Europe.
Now, however, Nokia has announced that thanks to consumer interest it and have agreed to launch the Nokia 808 PureView in the U.S. The smartphone will be offered unlocked and unsubsidized exclusively on for $699. The smartphone will come with a SIM card that will work on the AT&T network. Nokia notes that the smartphone will work on the T-Mobile network as well but only at 2G speeds.
The phone will still feature 41-megapixel sensor that got us excited back in February with Carl Zeiss optics. The smartphone camera will also feature technology to allow the camera to oversample and combine up to seven pixels into one "pure" pixel. That feature promises to eliminate visual noise common in another camera phones. Other features include the ability to record full HD video and the phone can record CD-like sound quality using internal microphones thanks to the first use of Nokia Rich Recording technology.
The mobile phone has a four-inch display and promises 6.5 hours of 3G talk time a full charge. Unfortunately, the phone will run the same Symbian OS European devices use.

Yup as I watch all the Android people I know now tell me how much they hate their android phones. The shine has worn off people want a phone that works. I dont even mind if they go to iPhone its much better than Android.

Windows Phone 7 doesn't have a memory slot - Problem solved in Windows Phone 8. There is your negative its all I got about the device.

How many processors do you think Android will need before it catches up to the Nokia 900?

Must suck to pay so much when a $99.00 phone whips your arses.

I love you and Jason's little myopic stories about how your wife switched to WP7, or you did, or your friend. And they love it etc etc. It's just so heartwarming! It's changing the world as we know it.

And after the Galaxy 3 sells 20+ million units like the ones before it, you'll probably still be saying this tripe. Yeah Android is just terrible. Ignorance is bliss.

Ah so I'm a sheep for using Android. Apple users and sheeple too. I guess that leaves WP7 and Symbian for "free thinking" people? Down with the establishment!! Join...errr..Microsoft? lol.

I can only assume you're trying to catch crabs with all that trolling you're doing :)
