Nokia 808 Pureview To Cost £465, Lands End Of April

The Symbian-based Nokia 808 Pureview, which was last month at Mobile World Congress, will land in the UK on the 23rd of April according to the product page published by which also puts the price of the 808 at £465 including free delivery (opens in new tab).

The device, which is unlocked and unbranded, was one of the most sought after handsets at MWC 2012 in Barcelona because it features a massive 41 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, more than three times the pixel count of its predecessor, the Nokia N8.

Apart from the two year manufacturer's warranty (which is pretty unique amongst tier-one manufacturers), the Nokia Pureview 808 has a 4-inch 640 by 360 pixels AMOLED display (that's a rather disappointing 184 ppi pixel density), 512MB RAM, a single core ARM11 based chip (possibly the Broadcom BCM2763) clocked at 1.3GHz, 16GB onboard storage (with an optional microSD card slot), a polycarbonate chassis with Gorilla glass, full HD video recording, a 1400mAh battery, HDMI port, DLNA compatibility, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and A-GPS.

Part of the reason why Nokia doesn't need a fast processor is down to the operating system, in this case the Symbian-based Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1. You can read more about the handset, watch videos and photos on its topic page.
