incredible, groundbreaking camera; solid build quality

Summary

Nokia is no stranger to pushing the envelope with its camera phones, and the new 808 PureView is no exception to that. Though the 808 PureView is a humdrum smartphone running a dated and crippled operating system (Symbian), it features some of the most groundbreaking imaging technology we have ever seen on a smartphone.

The camera alone isn't enough to make the 808 PureView a must buy, and at $700, Nokia likely won't see very many sales come from the 808 PureView. But it does give us a glimpse into the future of smartphone camera technology, and shows us what we can expect to see in upcoming Windows Phone-equipped Nokia smartphones.

Read on to find out why the 808 PureView is such an intriguing device.
