Mexico follows India and Russia to get Nokia 808 PureView

| May 8, 2012 | 121 Replies

There are a few countries already with the Nokia 808 on their Nokia pages suggesting availability there. The only thing it doesn’t properly indicate is when. Well we heard that India and Russia would be one of the first two.

Nokia said they would update us as more countries become available. Next up, it’s Mexico “but this will occur some weeks later.”

    All the business logic and discussion aside, for purely PR reasons personally I would have sold both the N9 and 808 everywhere. No marketing if it does not make sense, but orderable items if nothing else. They were/are good halo products.

    But then I don’t know what kind of costs and reasons Nokia had to deal with.

    • NobleScarlet

      Honestly, if Nokia spent the same amount for marketing on the PureView and N9, and release them everywhere, Nokia will really be at the top of the game.

      • Janne

        NobleScarlet: I have a hard time seeing how. 808 is a niche product, much more so than N8 was at the time. It is just so large and heavy while phones have gotten thinner and thinner. It is an important product no doubt, but not a Nokia savior as is. N9 of course was more mainstream, but who knows what kind of an ecosystem Nokia could have built for it. But we’ll never know, of course.

          will we ever know? oohh will we ever know.
          Sabotage?

          have you seen on the web how many people will by this phone? there’s more more nokia users that will buy this phone then a lumia! I would be interested to see how much people here would buy this phone!

    I for one don’t understand why Nokia releases the 808 at all. It seems completely inconsistent with their business strategy. The N8 is arguably still the king camera phone, they have nothing to prove in the market and competitors are still years behind. They could have comfortably waited one year to release the technology on Lumias and still generate the same amount of awe about a 41 MP camera.

    Releasing the 808 is even more incomprehensible when they don’t seem prepared to promote it or distribute it widely. Why bother at all if they’re only prepared to sell it in small quantities?

    On the other hand, having PureView or polycarbonate design exclusive to Lumias would have considerably improved their (currently very low) appeal – why waste that in exchange of few 808 or N9 sales?

    My guess is that it must only be due to some internal politics (e.g. PureView team may have left), or maybe some legal commitments with suppliers or third parties…

    Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be the first in line to buy the 808, and I absolutely disprove the WP strategy. I don’t see the 808 as a “niche” product and I am sure it would easily oversell the 900 if priced reasonably and given half the marketing. If anything, I consider the cold and dry WP interface as a much more “niche” feature than the presence of the camera bump. I just don’t understand the business strategy behind the 808 launch (and the N9′s)…

      Because WP is a cancer. The WP is years behind symbian and it’s impossible to make advanced devices using WP: NFC, PureView, FM Transmitter, USB OTG, HDMI, Composite Video Out. Everything I’ve listed is impossible to use in WP. WP is a step back for Nokia’s R&D. I still don’t understand why Nokia chooses WP as a main system. LG won’t make any WP device in future, Samsung or HTC is making niche devices. WP is dead. It’s no worth to buy WP smartphone, when ios has more games and applications than WP. Only PureView, NFC, Maps makes nokia phones competitive. Today nokia 700 is more advanced device than Lumias.

  • lordstar

    I think the 808 is too far along to stop as well. Isn’t it 5 years in the making? That would really upset the imaging team of Nokia if Elop would have just cancelled the device and ordered them to go make the tehnology be available for windows phone.

    • pipo

      exactly. And to please mr. Dinning the lead on the project he agreed to ‘sell it in selected markets’. Which means markets where it wouldn’t hurt sales of the upcomming Lumia 900.

      The bloody bastards.
      Of Nokia doesn’t go full ahead with this then they deserved to burn in hell!

    can anyone tell me here if the 808 isn’t on nokias product page of your country but the lumia 900 isn’t also will that country get it? I’m from South Africa and neither the 808 of the lumia 900 is on their product page. thanks!

  • Rustyknight17

    Janne , u might be surprised at how well the 808 might do if released in all markets ! After all , it attracted a LOT of attention and positive press at CES 2012 !
    Hmmm , if Amazon USA doesn`t carry the PureView , might have to make a trip to Mexico lol !

  • Rustyknight17

    And U will notice that Elop was nowhere to be found at the 808`s intro . Undoubtedly , the reason it ( and the N9 ) haven`t been released in several key markets is because Elop correctly saw Symbian and Meego as major threats to WP !

    IMO Nokia : Let the CONSUMERS decide and vote WITH THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY whether they WANT the Nokia 808 PV or not.

    Release it globally. As a sign of good faith. Nokia, if you do that, we will respect your decision going with WP. If not, then a whole load of sh*tstorm is REALLY COMING YOUR WAY.

    The public has spoken. Heed.
