The 41-Megapixel Nokia 808 PureView is finally making its way to US carriers. Unfortunately, it’s doing so unlocked and unsubsidized, and will cost shutterbugs a steep $699.
The HSPA phone will work on AT&T and T-Mobile’s 3G.
As the Nokia Blog originally reported, an error in the phone's spec sheet originally stated the phone would not support 3G on T-Mobile's network - a steep price for a phone limited to two-generations-old network. Fortunately, Nokia responded that it was, in fact, just an error on the spec sheet.
A 41-Megapixel camera might seem like little more than a marketing gimmick – as we’ve seen in the past, a higher number of pixels rarely lends itself to a higher quality picture – but the 808 has a massive matching sensor and a high-quality Carl Zeiss lens.
So what do you think? Is 41MP overkill, or is this a revolution in mobile photography?
