Nokia (NOK) is working on a Windows Phone containing an image sensor similar to the 41MP sensor found in the PureView 808, The Verge reports. The site adds the phone will use an aluminum body and be sold by AT&T later this year. The 808's camera was widely praised, but its use of Symbian and a mediocre display hampered sales.

  • It's about time Nokia is going to kill the competition


    Not that Nokia wouldn't be a leader in mobile imaging already but when Verge saw 808 camera they said "Nokia is so far ahead of competition it really has no competition"

  • That camera is a game changer, without a doubt and just the kind of thing needed to draw in new people to the superior windows live tile system. You can zoom five times without losing any clarity. Imagine taking the movies from that to your TV through Xbox. No one else has anything even close.


    Long Nokia

  • They don't say so--because I don't think they can--but I hope this gets released on Verizon FIRST.. cripes, I'm getting tired of this AT&T nonsense ;-)

  • Me too Luke. IMO NOK saved that 41MP off of the 920 in order to add that as 1 more upgrade for their 922 or whatever the next release is. They already put in Low-light and image stabilization. If they go 41MP, I may not have to buy a new body for my Cannon Camera. I'm with Verizon though, so have to wait till V can sell me one

  • Great buying opportunity today. Sellers have not been following the stock, just the "Talking Heads". They don't realize that as long as NOK has turned from many quarters of losses to a profit, that they don't NEED as many sales to be viable. It will soon sink in that they sold off a winner. IMO AAPL set the Street into a "punish tech" mode.
    I doubled down at the open.
