Unlocked Nokia 808 PureView to be launched in the US soon
It looks like Nokia will release its 808 PureView smartphone in the US after all. PC Mag had a chat with Nokia US president Chris Weber, who said that the company is trying to “figure out a way to make that [the 808 PureView] available in the U.S. in the next couple of months.”
Unlike the Nokia Lumia 900 and Lumia 710 Windows Phones, the 808 PureView will not be offered by any US carrier. Instead, customers should be able to buy it unlocked. The handset will be compatible with AT&T’s 3G network.
The 808 PureView runs Belle OS (ex Symbian), and is probably the best camera phone ever made, featuring a 41MP sensor with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon Flash. Other features include a 4 inch AMOLED ClearBlack display with 360 x 640 pixels, 1.3GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and 16GB of storage space. There’s no word on the price Nokia is planning to ask for the 808 in the US.
