    The reviews are in, the pureview is crushing the competition, holds its own (and even exceeds in some aspects) against actual cameras

    check it out:
    Shootout: Nokia 808 PureView vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 - Mobile Phones - CNET - CNET Asia
    Nokia 808 PureView Review - Watch CNET's Video Review

    Its an amazing phone, just held back by Symbian (although I genuinely like Symbian). Imagine pureview on WP8, it would crush the competition

    It would be cool and still easier than carrying a separate camera. But I would honestly like to see a version that doesn't add so much bulk and look so ugly. And I hope they use machined aluminum or something similar instead of chrome so we can keep our mind off of scratches.

    I guess I'm the only one who is tired of the boxy slab phones and likes the look, especially with the curved screen.

    This. I would be fully content if Nokia threw the physical buttons from the 710 under the screen and replaced the SOC and OS and sold it as a mango device. I would buy the red one.

    No, I am too. I originally thought the Pureview was ugly, but it has really grown on me. If they put WP8 on that thing, I would be at the store on launch day.

    "However, once the PureView Pro technology is brought to the Windows Phone platform, we would say the smartphone-OS big boys had better watch their backs."

    Pretty much says it all. :D

    I am very interested in pureview too. Carrying that phone around would definitely get some WP attention.

    That ain't your standard Pureview.

    Man, I hope that's legit. If they release it in red I'm on it. ****, they could release it in polycarbonate puke green and it'd still be my next phone!

    I'm even more excited by the "Rich Recording" technology that comes with it. Just... WOW!

    Awesome! I can't wait for that to come to WP! Add a pureview camera and Rich Recording to WP7.5 and I'll buy it with no other changes!
