Nokia (NOK) is investing in Pelican Imaging, whose technology promises to improve autofocus, depth, and splicing for phone camera images, a move NOK hopes will help it win back customers from Apple and Android users. Array cameras, which mesh multiple optics into one image, "are on the cusp of being commercialized. It's very complicated to do this algorithmically, and Pelican is one of the companies that has mastered this technology," Nokia says.
