    Sounds pretty cool, though it doesn't sound like a phone, and no "phony" details were mentioned. What OS does it run, hardware specs, dimensions, etc?

    I think 41MP is overkill. Imagine how much storage space you'll need? A 41MP image is probably well over 200MB in size.

    It runs Symbian Belle, although the tech will likely be coming to Windows Phone 7.

    And while the sensor is 41MP, it uses resampling, so it produces images of 5MP, albeit with ridiculously high clarity

    In the hands of a noob instead of a proffesional photographer...these kind of cameras are extreamely dangerous. Highly unflattering...it highlights every damn open pore on your skin daaaaling! Anyone point a high end camera my way and I run like the wind baby.

    41mp should be around 20 - 30mb per pic
    my 12.2MP camera takes 5mb pics

    But why?

    My theory is, if you want to take good quality pics, get a camera. The phone cameras as far as I'm concerned is for the quick pics when you don't have your camera handy.

    They could have made it look better. Don't like the look, but atleast it doesn't look like the N9/Lumia... we need better looking phones Nokia, N8 hint hint?

    Lossless digital zoom. Read the link someone posted above, pretty good explanation. Optical zoom is too bulky and awkward to add to a phone, so this is the answer.

    Look forward to full reviews of this device, just out of interest. Great to see Nokia starting to innovate again, even it is still on Symbian devices.

    That's a higher pixel count than any current top range DSLR.

    "On sale in May, for 450 Euros—which is around $600."

    And for that low price. This I have to see to believe.

    Ok after looking at the sample Photo's I must say this thing has one hell of a nice camera, pity of the OS. Symbian alone is a reason I will not buy it.

    Interesting but useless info, On the MWC keynote they said that the team that took the pictures, came to SA specifically for the sample photo's. Now that is one thing we can be proud of

    If you want to see some of the untouched photo's you can check this link. Warning its 41 meg for only 3 pictures.

    SA is **** for broadband, great for photos.

    For years I've read speculation about what would happen if someone built a sensor with a pixel count way beyond diffraction limits, creating final images by downsampling. No Bayer interpolation artifacts or need for antialias filters etc. I'd never have guessed Nokia to be the one to give us an answer.

    Calling this device revolutionary is an understatement. Speechless!

    Edit: Nokia 808 PureView – revolutionary camera technology; great smartphone
