Nokia is going big on the camera features in its new 925 and 928 Lumia devices, continuing on in its PureView legacy first introduced back when it was still making Symbian devices. Within that it is adding a few key apps to the device — Oggl from Hipstamatic, the slick video sharing app Vyclone and Cinemagraph — but there is still no sign of popular picture-taking and picture-sharing app… → Read More
Fresh from last week’s Verizon Lumia device launch, Nokia has taken the wraps off a new smartphone in its Windows Phone-based Lumia range at an event in London today. The Lumia 925 is its first flagship for T-Mobile in the U.S. This means that following the Lumia 928 launch on Verizon, and factoring in Nokia’s initial launch of the Lumia 920 on AT&T last year, Nokia now has a… → Read More
According to the FT, which cites people with knowledge of Nokia’s plans, the former worldwide number one mobile maker (whose crown was snatched by Samsung) is planning several high end smartphones this year — including “a device that can work as a phone and a tablet [aka a phablet]… similar in size but with more advanced specifications to Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note”. → Read More
The Nokia 808 PureView was arguably the best phone to be unboxed at last year’s Mobile World Congress tradeshow. Except it wasn’t, because the handset was running the legacy Symbian OS. But, according to the Verge, Nokia is planning a “true PureView Windows Phone” this year — which will have a similar sensor to the one used in the 808 PureView. → Read More
Nokia has recently made efforts to distinguish its smartphones with advanced photographic capabilities, introducing the PureView 808 with a 41MP rear camera. Now, Nokia’s long-time head of imaging and photography Damian Dinning, who has been with the company since 2004, is confirmed to be departing as of November 30. Dinning was also said to have had a key role in Windows Phone imaging software. → Read More
Several months Nokia broke the mold and stuffed a 41MP sensor into phone. Called the 808 PureView Nokia claims it has the best optics in the smartphone world. The initial test shots are great. But CNET took it one step farther and just posted several telling comparison shots against the iPhone 4S and the HTC One X. So how does it compare? Welcome to the future, everyone. The water is crystal… → Read More
The charmingly chunky PureView 808 was the first to sport Nokia’s impressive new imaging technology, but it (thankfully) won’t be the last. In a brief video interview with HowardForums, Nokia US President Chris Weber noted that the company’s lauded PureView camera tech would eventually find a new home on Windows Phones.
“You can expect we’ll be bringing PureView technologies to the Windows… → Read More
I doubt that you’ve forgotten about Nokia’s crazy 808 PureView phone with a 41-megapixel camera. How could you? It’s impossible to dismiss, even if the whole 41-megapixel figure is a bit misleading.
The only issue with it is that it runs on Symbian, a slowly but surely dying platform. Luckily, Nokia has confirmed that its PureView technology is headed to the Windows Phone platform as a part of… → Read More
I think it’s safe to say that the new 808 Pureview handset was a surprise to just about everyone here at Nokia’s press conference. Not only did Nokia manage to squeeze a 41-megapixel sensor (no, that’s not a typo) into a smartphone, they squeezed it into a smartphone that runs on the Symbian Belle OS.
But first, let’s get the nitty gritty out of the way. Ridiculous camera aside, the 808… → Read More
