After Nokia N8, there wasn’t any Symbian handset that would have been waited for this much in market and blogosphere as Nokia Pureview 808. After two short encounters with the same in one workshop first and then in Launch event, the legendary device finally decided to pay a short visit of 7 days to Layman’s Take itself. So, without wasting any time, let’s move further to know about the device.
Just when it was becoming a fashion to bash Symbian on every next handset and no one was thinking that some big biased blogs would get lined up in front of Nokia ever again to get a preview for a Symbian handset, then there came a day, when Nokia 808 PureView announced itself with a bang at this year’s Mobile World Congress at Barcelona.
Trust me, it was a sight to watch the reactions of crowd and reading reactions on twitter. People like me who were online that time and were following the announcements, could still remember those goose bumps when they heard the words “41 Megapixels”. Instant reactions were like “WHAT THE FUCK”, “HOLY SHITTT”…
In an instant, all those announcements of first set of Quad Core Android handsets were looking so irrelevant and each & everyone was looking to know more and more about Nokia Pureview 808 only and why not? This was the best ever Mobile Camera that ever happened to planet earth and even when the best second was its own sibling Nokia N8, it doesn’t seem to allow anyone to come even close to the legacy that it will own for next coming years.
When I took it for review, till then a lot been said and shown about its camera, so I was to look over other aspects as well and was to review a Smartphone rather than a camera phone. Let’s see how it went …
Yeah! It would be one of the rarest occasions when I might be posting about just a hands on, but a hands on over a Smart phone having 41mp camera in it, is rare of rarest in itself. it was hard to keep the excitement within and I know you wanted to listen from me about it…
It started from an invite from Aditya (@adityavnathan) about a Nokia Reviewers workshop in Hotel Oberai, New Delhi for April 10, 2012, with Vesa Jutila, Head of Symbian Smartphones Product Marketing, Smart Devices at Nokia.
While the name of Vesa Jutila was a hint in itself, I was already hinted that it’s about Nokia Pureview 808.
I knew that Tuesday will be a weekday and it wont be easy to bunk the newly joined office in middle, but when it’s about Nokia Pureview 808, it was hard to stop someone who been proud owner of Nokia N82 and Nokia N8-00 and there I was and some other blogger friends….
Apparently its not the first event related to Nokia Pureview 808 in India as Dolby event in Mumbai (mid March) happens to showcase it first, though this should be the first official event related to Nokia Pureview 808 in India from Nokia itself. Delhi took the first spot, Mumbai will be next for Wednesday event.
