Nokia unleashes its latest product the 808 Pureview complete with a 41mp built-in camera that rivals the latest Nikon D800. Who says the mp war has stopped? The OS is Symbian Belle; the engine is a 1.3GHz single-core chip; the display is 4-inches corner to corner but its resolution is a Nokia-style 360 x 640 (nHD). There’s 512MB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage that is thankfully expandable via microSD. A Pentaband modem increases the chances of getting a signal while globe-trotting, while data speeds will top out at plain HSPA 14.4Mbps. Now that Carl Zeiss-lensed camera: it handles continuous-focus 1080p, but is claimed to have an incredible sensor resolution of over 41-megapixels when shooting stills — or 34-megapixels for 16:9 images. It uses some clever interpolation jiggery-pokery that condenses four or five pixels into one pixel, to produce a smaller file size for the output image. It is expected to be launched in the 2nd quarter this year. The selling price is estimated to be around RM2,000.
The choice for cameras now gets harder. Should I buy a Canon, Nikon or Nokia?
