    On the leaked pictures of the eos, i noticed something strang near the simcard slot. Is is possible to have a dual slot for both simcard AND sd card?

    Nice find! It kinda looks like its a dual slot! ;)

    And the slots look like they got a slighty different size, just like simcards and SDcards :o

    I doubt that. At least don't get your hopes up.

    Why cant they just make a tray where you place the sim and microSD stacked back to back? They only have pins on one side each...

    A camera centric device without a SD card slot makes absolutely no sense. There is a reason why all the compact cameras have them..

    And this would be the first time Nokia will do this.. all their previous cameraphones have had memory card slots.

    Probably down to the OS, read quite a few complaints of cards slowing down the phone, saving videos and pictures taking a while. If it can potentially affect the UX I think they will leave it off.

    Yeah it has been an interesting change with Nokia.
    With Symbian and Maemo they where in the forefront of available storage with N97 having 32GB internal + MicroSD slot and N9 having 64GB internal.

    With WP7 it was clear OS limitation, but with WP8 things are at least quite a bit better, even if the card slot should be
    utilizied better. Though I also think that the mobile computer thinking that died with Maemo 5 and Harmattan/Maemo 6 inside Nokia has also resulted in a lower storage space.

    BTW, I was told by an AT&T employee (not one of the store ones!) that Nokia was allowed to tinker a bit with the OS (more than any previous phone on WP) to make everything work how they wanted. I don't know if that means Nokia said "We need X,Y,Z" and Microsoft did it or what. Just a thought when considering the current issues with WP that could affect the phone.

    given the possible file size of pictures taken with a 41mp camera, a SD card slot is a must

    I keep posting the same thing over an over again, but..

    The way the technology works in the Phase 1 system, which is what we have in the 808, is that in PureView mode the software combines 7 pixels into 1, and it cleans up the junk (noise, etc.) in the process, which makes the file smaller, and it also makes it nicer to look at..

    So, you end up using 41 million pixels, to produce an 5 or 8mpix image in a small file. This process allows them to use 85% jpeg compression, which helps a lot as well.

    Here are two examples from my 808

    http://www.esato.com/phonephotos/cam...0501p844pv.jpg

    http://www.esato.com/phonephotos/cam...072565mxM4.jpg

    They are about 1 mb each.. but the quality remains superior to any other phone, which will give you a noisy 3mb jpeg.

    even more visible here

    This is from the 808, and the file is 800kb .. nice and clean

    http://www.esato.com/phonephotos/cam...0531Lx1Io2.jpg

    This from my iphone 5...

    2.3mb worth of noise.. ew.

    http://www.esato.com/phonephotos/cam...0531DHr10J.jpg

    The full resolution photos come at about 11-15mb.. still pretty good compression,

    this is 38mpix
    http://www.esato.com/phonephotos/cam...2001b8jVr4.jpg

    but I rarely shoot in full res.. only if I am doing some resizing later, like for example today I took this under the golden gate bridge in full res, and got it down to 11Mpix.. still retaining great detail

    You should copy paste these answers because I think you will need to answer these time after time when the phone get announced. ;)

    I think you meant ".....[Compared to those 808 photos] my Lumia 920 camera..."

    I'm lusting for it too, but the 920 is no slouch.

    I really hope if comes with an SD slot. On top of that, I really hope the camera is better than the 808. Rumours are going around that this is a bit watered down to fit in the Lumia body. I HOPE NOT. I dont care how fat the phone is! My hopes is that the WPCentral gang can ask the right questions to figure out how this phone and the 808 will compare in hardware, software, and final execution. I odnt care about 1080p screen(but ould be nice) I dont care about quad core(but would be nice) I just want an impressive camera that I will have with me 24/7 by default. Nokia, Please don't water this down. I would think it would be an improvement as you've had over a year to mature the hardware and software :)

    @vlad0:
    Excellent explanation and examples, thank you for that; greatly appreciated! (some of the photos though seem to have broken links now )

    Well.....it seems the Lumia 1020 won't feature an SD Card slot.
    Big bummer if you ask me. Hoping for a 64gb version if that's the case.
