    Those of you who have a Nokia 808 PureView are probably annoyed that an image from the Gallery can be directly shared to Facebook but not to Twitter, which requires you to fire up Nokia Social and show it off from there. There are a couple of new updates reportedly going out for the 808 PureView as well as other Belle FP2 phones which seem to address this omission. After being able to finally share directly to Twitter from the Gallery -- via the Share menu option -- the default icon for sharing turns to Twitter from Facebook. It's not a major update but definitely a welcomed one and it ...

    Back before Nokia's 808 PureView launched with its utterly fantastic imaging capabilities, before we even knew its final name, we had heard rumors that the handset would be the last in a long line of Symbian smartphones. Nokia had already made it clear that Windows Phone was the future, but rather than slamming the door on Symbian outright, it planned for a more gradual shift in focus over to Microsoft's platform. Since then, we've seen the company continue to release software updates for Symbian devices, helping to reassure long-term fans of the OS that they wouldn't be forgotten, but ...

    While our own Nokia 808 PureView has not received the latest over-the-air refresh yet, there are several reports circulating over the past couple of days of an update being pushed out to the phone. Those who reportedly received it are talking about a rather fat download, of about 420MB, applied from the computer. While the OTA update could weigh less, the refresh itself should bump the software version of Nokia Belle Feature Pack 2 from 113.010.1507 to 113.010.1508, a tiny little version-increase. While new features have not been sighted, the refresh should definitely bring some ...

    It's that time again when we slowly need to get used to writing a new number when mentioning dates; luckily thanks to our smart devices we don't need to go out and look for a 2013 wallet calendar, unless we really want to. It's that time when we look back at what happened this year, with all the goods and bads, and anxiously look forward to what next year might bring. As usual here at Pocketnow we're happy to tell you what we think, and we're excitedly waiting to hear your opinions, in our upcoming series which will contain both 2012 recaps and 2013 predictions. We'll have something for ...

    On October 2 Nokia announced the Belle Feature Pack 2 update for the 808 PureView and other Nokia Belle-powered devices like the Nokia 603, Nokia 700 and Nokia 701. After some users reported issues while updating Nokia has put the refresh on hold but is available again, with problems hopefully being fixed. For the 808 PureView, it finally brings a Gallery Grid view when you have the phone in landscape, access to more functions when you open your images from the Gallery widget on your home screen, more information about your images, such as image resolution, ISO value, white balance ...

    The Nokia Lumia 920 is out and the Finns have decided to brand its camera as a PureView one. It is not the PureView in its 808 PureView meaning and the manufacturer explains the marketing move: if the 808 is all about lossless zooming and image oversampling, the 920 is all about low light and optical image stabilization. Nokia's camera guru, Damian Dinning, Lead Program Manager of Imaging Experience, took it to Twitter to explain the differences between the two PureView phones: Nokia 808 PureView vs. Nokia Lumia 920, in terms of differences and similarities between them. Camera ...

    Not often we see companies committing product infanticide, brand cannibalization or, to put it casually, shooting themselves in the foot.  Nokia just did that with the PureView technology. Bear with me for a second: despite the fact that the Nokia 808 PureView is running an abandoned OS (and a slow one at that, compared to others), I often find myself showing the phone off. If the person is tech-savvy they will immediately respect that 41-megapixel sensor and the technology behind it; if they're laymen, I just show them a bunch of pictures and look at their astonished faces. Our own ...

    The Nokia 808 PureView -- winner of the GSMA Global Mobile Awards 2012 and 2012 TIPA Award for Best Imaging Innovation -- shocked everyone at this year's Mobile World Congress with its 41-megapixel camera sensor. Many understood the PureView Technology from the very beginning while others were simply considering it overkill. Nokia wanted to come up with a worthy successor to the Nokia N8, former King of Camera-phones, and the Finnish company believed that the 808 PureView would be just that. However, straight from the beginning, the 808 PureView raised eyebrows because of the platform used ...

    After seeing just what the PureView Technology is in reality and how it works, we compared the image and video capturing capabilities of the Nokia 808 PureView with some hot phones on the market right now. As described in the PureView Technology piece, one of its main features is lossless zoom. We have a couple of images for you to check out; the captions on each image will describe the mode used to shoot, but of course, you need to check out the full resolution versions by clicking them open. Note: You may want to scroll to the bottom of this post to check out the focus and zoom demo ...

    Not often we have the chance of comparing phones with excellent imaging capabilities. The Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X are all known to deliver great capturing functionality (and we know we're a couple of devices short on the list, but these are the hottest at the moment). We've took the above three, plus the Nokia 808 PureView, for a spin. Pictures and videos captured in real life, side-by-side, just to make sure every tech and marketing talk on paper has a solid basis in reality. First off, let's talk pictures! In the comparisons below we have set all phones to ...

    What we've been telling everyone here on Pocketnow -- in articles, editorials, videos and even on the Pocketnow Weekly podcast -- seems to be exactly what the general perception in technology is today: "megapixels don't count". We will now tell you the exact opposite: "megapixels do count", but only if they are used the way Nokia is employing them in its PureView technology. Why Can't It Take 41-Megapixel Images? You see, many people will think that "41 megapixels is overkill", "41 megapixels is useless", and so on. We're here to vehemently contradict them, and, after you will understand ...

    When Nokia introduced the 808 PureView at this year's MWC, everybody was shocked to hear that the Finnish manufacturer packed a 41-megapixel sensor inside the phone. Of course, Nokia wanted a decent follow-up to the Nokia N8 which was, for a long time, the king of camera phones. Now, the new King is here! The box contains the 808 PureView, an 1,400mAh battery pack, a wall charger, USB cable for syncing and charging, a wrist-wrap and in-ear noise canceling headphones. The 808 PureView is powered by a 1.3GHz processor, aided by a dedicated Broadcom BCM2763, has a four-inch ClearBlack AMOLED ...

    On June 19 Nokia announced that its 41-megapixel-powered monster will be available in the U.S. through Amazon. While there was no indication of an exact availability date, the announcement made it public that the phone will go for $699, fully unlocked and unsubsidized. You can now purchase the Nokia 808 PureView as it is available from the merchant. You will get it by July 10 and, as per why you'd like to purchase a phone running Symbian Belle, in a world dominated by Android, iOS and Windows Phone, the answer is the 41-megapixel image sensor and stellar imaging functionality. Make sure ...

    It's nearly 14mm thick, tips the scales at 169g, and sports a display of only four inches. Its radio includes 3G support for just one American network, with 2G support for another, and not a hint of LTE in sight. The one band that could have given it additional 3G connectivity, 1700MHz, was present on the European version but excised from its North American variant. Though it may receive the occasional update, its operating system is effectively a dead platform, running at 1.3GHz on a single-core CPU. Oh, and it costs nearly $700. Yes, the North American version of the Nokia 808 PureView ...
