Once the rumour for the Nokia 808 PureView began, there has been a ton of excitement and doubt. I won’t say any more on this, the discussion is available there.
Rest assured, it’s high and dsmobile (and various sources) are sticking firm to the high MP count. Here’s another instance where dsmobile confirmed the mp count (cheers marc for the tip!) It’s fair game to not believe what was mentioned in the quoted link. There is a linear way to think about what Nokia would do with such pixels, and then there’s some interesting out of the box implementations.
Now onto the design. Some mock up of the 803 has been floating around and well, I’m not liking it. It looks like a 5800 class device. But dsmobile says that the design is stunning so that can’t be the 808 right?
beside even with huge camera the design is really stunning. It would be perfect device with HarmattanMeego.
dsmobile is quite picky in what he likes design wise.
A perfect design for 808 is NOT that mockup unless it significantly looks better in real life.
Some more specific details. dsmobile counters speculation of no removable memory slot to say yes. You can have 16GB or 32GB WITH MicroSD.
Here’s the mockup of the 803 we saw in a manual a while ago (we can’t even be certain that’s real) created by @brianmfb and posted by Mark from TheNokiaBlog.
