Nokia Announces PureView 808 Coming to USA for $699by Brian Klug on June 18, 2012 9:54 PM EST
The last time we played with the Nokia PureView 808 was at MWC, where I came away very impressed with the device and what I saw in terms of image quality from the camera. For those unfamiliar with the PureView 808, the smartphone packs a huge 1/1.2" 41 MP CMOS sensor and runs Symbian Belle. While I'm still waiting on our PureView 808 review unit (and look forward to talking about its optical system), Nokia today has answered a lingering question about availability for customers in the US. The PureView 808 will be available through Amazon.com at some point in the future (no exact date was given) for $699 unlocked.
Potential PureView 808 shoppers can sign up to be notified when the Amazon preorder page is live on the PureView 808 page. The PureView 808 includes the proper UMTS bands for AT&T HSPA+,
however it lacks AWS for T-Mobile HSPA+ and will instead work on GSM/EDGE for those subscribers. Update: The Nokia Conversations blog and PureView 808 specs page incorrectly ommitted AWS support, when the device does in fact support AWS and will work on T-Mobile HSPA+.
