Both devices are expected to be announced on Sept. 5

Samsung may have struck the first blow in the Windows Phone 8 battle, but Nokia isn't about to roll over and play dead despite its meager results with Windows Phone 7.x. EVLeaks has posted two images which apparently depict the upcoming Lumia 820 and the Lumia 920 with PureView.
 
Not much is know about either device other than the fact that the mid-range Lumia 820 features a 4.3" screen, while the flagship Lumia 920 features 4.5" screen. As you can tell from the following images, both will likely be available in a number of colors to suit your design aesthetic.

Like I said, I'm not suggesting that the 808 is better than a D800, but the mere fact that it is comparable (in at least some metrics) is astounding.

Don't forget that the D800 is using a pro grade lens stopped down to f/11, while the 808 is shooting at f/2.4 (non-adjustable aperture). To be able to capture more detail than the DSLR combination is staggering.

As to interpolation, almost every* commercial camera does that - it's a function of the Bayer color filter and anti-aliasing filter. The AA filter is probably what's holding the D800 back moreso than the lens or sensor. The 808 is doing a pretty good job here - color moire and jaggies are very well controlled.

I agree with you that a smaller 21MP unit would make more sense to the majority of the market. I'm definitely interested to see how it will perform. I do have some hope that the renders are not accurate and we will at least get a Xenon flash in the 920. Would I consider getting a (hypothetical) 21MP 920 over a 41 MP 808? Definitely... maybe.

* Exceptions that I know of would be the Leica M9 Monochrom and Sigma's Foveon-sensor cameras (SDx, DPx series). But these aren't without their own drawbacks and sacrifices, and are very niche products.

Another interesting camera is the lytro. Waiting on 2nd Gen before I buy one.
