Interesting snippet from a PCMag interview with Chris Weber, President of Nokia USA:

In the meantime, U.S. phone buffs will soon be able to get hold of the PureView 808, Nokia’s 41-megapixel camera phone. While the phone won’t be picked up by a U.S. carrier, it’ll be AT&T-compatible and sold unlocked here, according to Weber.

We’ll figure out a way to make that available in the U.S. in the next couple of months,” he said.,2817,2404151,00.asp

PureView coming to the US in some way in the next couple of months. Great stuff!


There’s a microscopic possibility he’s talking about a Lumia PureView but the fact that a couple of months is mentioned says it’s the 808 given Lumia PureView is not expected until 2013.

Speaking of Lumia, just before that, Weber was asked about WP8 update:

Both Nokia and Microsoft understand the importance for consumers to keep their devices fresh and updated. Without any announcements being made, we’re working to make sure people have fresh and updated experiences on any device they may have,2817,2404151,00.asp

Similar wording to whether Nokia will get a phone on Verizon.

We’re not making any announcements, but we understand the importance of Verizon and we’re working hard to make that a reality,2817,2404151,00.asp

Verizon have already confirmed they’ll be backing WP and there are plenty of rumours around already of some Lumias heading to Verizon.


Cheers  Zipa, Arts and DKM for the tip!
