Nokia might have made headlines last week with the revelation that its working on a Windows Phone device with its PureView technology, but the original PureView phone, the 808 PureView, is still alive and kicking and apparently ready to hit the UK in the not to distant future.
The 808 PureView was first unveiled in March and since then there's been ample talk of a UK launch, including rumors of an April launch. However, it looks like we might finally have a solid date for this monster camera phone. According to Amazon UK, the phone will launch before the end of the month.
Amazon currently has the Nokia 808 PureView listed with a June 30 release date, which is Saturday week. The price tag Amazon is putting on the phone is £499.98, which is the SIM-free version.
The 808 PureView boasts 1.3GHz single-core chip, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable via microSD) and a 4-inch display. It also has that all important 41-megapixel sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, 4X zoom and the ability to record full 1080p HD. Nokia is using the sensor to target enthusiasts and offer them the opportunity to take high-res close-ups and the ability to crop without sacrificing quality.
