Nokia and Amazon.com bring PureView stateside, but the Nokia 808 PureView will still be saddled with Symbian OS
When Nokia pulled the wraps off the
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 Amazon.com have agreed to launch the Nokia 808 PureView in the U.S. The smartphone will be offered unlocked and unsubsidized exclusively on Amazon.com 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.

You are such a bitter opinionated FOOL reclaimer have I and others told you that before? YUPS many many times!!!! But once opinionated always opinionated. You offer nothing in the way of discussion you just offer your own point of views with a never ending condescending tone.
How was he preaching he was describing his own experiences!!!!! How egotistical can you be?!?!? He pointed out the reasons why he likes apple and then Wp7. I don't think anyone here is arguing that their mobile OS is perfect, everyone is arguing their mobile OS is best for them out of what's available today.
And who are you not to call the Lumia 900 a flagship phone? Is it on top of the wp7.5 heap? YUPPPPP. Why would an android phone or a 4S be anymore flagship? Because they have more powerful processors? Example: Would a PC running Corei7 hardware but win95 software be more flagship than a core2duo running win7? Of course not when there aren't any advanced OS's you can install and run. You are buying based on hardware, I and some of the others here are buying based on OS experience.
Seriously does anyone know where reclaimer lives? He needs a baseball bat to the back of the head.

Just make sure you try that on my property. That way when they haul your dumbass bullet riddled corpse away, I can site Castle Doctrine even though you brought a bat to a gunfight.
