Singson-Abes said, however, that new stocks are now their way to the country and will be available in stores soon. The allure of the gadget also comes from the fact that the phone has a retail price of P26,550 ? which is far cheaper than a standalone high-end digital camera with the same megapixel resolution. [cincopa AgOA_4a5x6G2] Observers are thus saying that the PureView could be the savior Nokia?s stumbling fortunes instead of the Windows Phone OS-powered Lumia line. The PureView is still based on the soon-to-be-extinct Symbian platform because it was developed five years ago when Nokia had no plans yet to migrate to Microsoft?s mobile platform. Nokia officials, however, have emphasized that the PureView technology is not dependent on Symbian and can be ported to other platforms such as the Windows Phone OS. Nokia 808 PureView carries an imaging technology that combines high performance sensors, exclusive Carl Zeiss optics and imaging algorithms, the company said. The PureView allows users to capture an image, then zoom, reframe, crop and resize afterwards to expose previously unseen levels of detail. ?You will never have to worry about having a pixelated or pixelized photo because its default resolution of 5 megapixels is condensed into one perfect pixel for the sharpest images possible,? the phonemaker said. The unit can also make full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom. It also features the world?s first use of Nokia Rich Recording, which enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality. Nokia 808 PureView also boasts of exclusive Dolby Headphones and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 technology, which allow users watch movies and YouTube videos or listen to music with surround sound quality. Nokia said the PureView?s powerful image sensor captures more light than other cameraphones. It also has an image processor which converts the 41 megapixels from the sensor into highly detailed compressed files, which can be easily shared in email, MMS, and on social networks. The Nokia 808 PureView comes in white, black and red colors. ]]>
