    At this point, it's fair to say that much of the wind has left MWC's sails. From a Sunday packed with pre-MWC launches, we've been seeing a steady dwindling-off of new high-profile hardware as the week unfolds, and by now if a manufacturer had something good to launch at the expo, it's been launched. However, MWC isn't over until tomorrow's done, so we're still out on the show floor looking to check in with devices we might have missed earlier, or taking the time to share with you some of the less show-stopping gadgets that are still worth a few minutes of your time. Let's take a quick ...

    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 ...
