Pureview: Symbian’s amazing everyday!

| February 27, 2012 | 22 Replies

I haven’t had much time to blog lately but, today is no ordinary day.

I woke up in the morning with a feeling that something great was about to happen at MWC. I’m so glad I wasn’t wrong 😀

The announcement of Nokia 808 Pureview is pretty much a dream come true to all of us Symbian/Nokia fans.

Nokia has been a pioneer in must mobile phone advancements, but today’s revelation, in my opinion, surpasses them all; not because of the technology presented (not that it isn’t an amazing achievement), but because it once again places Nokia in the vanguard of mobile device’s technology, in the most mind blowing way!

 A few days ago, we were discussing that the competition was just now catching up with what Nokia brought us with the N8.

There’s nothing out there, that can even be compared to Pureview.

If the N8 was a game changer, I don’t really know what to say about this… 41Mp???!! It’s undoubtedly a shocker for everyone.

It’s a delight to see the brand raise once again to its full potential, specially because it is making use of the house’s OS: Symbian.

Personally, wouldn’t have it any other way.


Contrary to what’s been highlighted by part of the blogosphere today, Symbian is by no means an inferior OS. Although I have to agree that as far as UI was concerned the platform was a bit outdated, the arrival of Belle “cleaned” Symbian’s face, and brought to surface the potential withhold in it. It can be an eye pleaser as well but, more than everything, a functional and feature filled, eye pleaser.

It has matured gracefully in the last decade, and is now starting to make use of the newest pieces of tech/engineering available.

The only problem is that the public’s perception of it, is tinted…

I can only hope that advancements of this nature, implemented in the OS, can start changing people’s view of it, and perhaps, who knows, give it (and/or Meego/Maemo) a clean start.


Congrats to Nokia’s team for the amazing work done with the 808 Pureview!

It is most definitely a marvellous device!


PS:  41Mp??!! AMAZING!! I still can’t wrap my mind around this piece of info 😛

Hi there! Thanks for reading my post. I'm a gadget lover and my enthusiasm towards Nokia began over 10 years ago, when I laid eyes on my late 3210 ;) Since then, I've owned pretty much every flagship Nokia launched, having the 6230, N82, N8, 808 Pureview, as my favourites.
