Nokia fans in the U.S. that were hoping for the 808 PureView to hit the market — there were actually indications of that happening shortly after MWC — were probably excited over the weekend with Nokia U.S. featuring 808-related material on their Facebook page, hinting towards a June 18 announcement.
As expected, the Finnish manufacturer is bringing the 808 PureView to the States. It will be available for $699 from Amazon and, while it will be fully operational on AT&T’s network, it will only be able to generate 2G traffic on T-Mobile. The main attraction of this phone is the 41-megapixel sensor coupled with the Carl Zeiss lens, which produce stunning images because of Nokia’s unique approach to oversampling data. The huge sensor size also allows for optical zoom, if you wish to see it that way.
