    Curious to know why you won't just wait for a WP version?
    I'll get the WP version too.:D Probably first for my wife as a Christmas present to replace her Nokia N8.

    I don't know if this is true or not, because I haven't found evidence over the net, but some commenters on blogs are claiming that Nokia "said" Pureview would come to WP in a downgraded form. By downgraded, I'm guessing they mean less than 41MP. People are saying that WP can't handle the camera sensors needed to process, like Symbian can.
    This has been confirmed by Nokia. PureView is a separate tech from the lens and does not depend on megapixels. I expect to see a slim lumia 920, 950, or 1001 with pureview.

    In the setting for the Pureview 808 you can select pureview or full resolution. under pureview you have the option for 8mp, 5mp, and 2mp resolutions . So to me there is not doubt that current lumia can be fitted with pureview technology. I'm not an expert so...

    Lucky dog! I bet you just want the 808 in time to see the Bears' openning game, and take some awesome shots from far away! Amarite? ;)

    Nope, she reads about photography and photography applications at a couple of Nokia/Symbian sites. She does like Windows OS from playing with HTC 7 Trophy.

    Do the masses want a camera that also makes calls and receives text, or do they want a phone that can do many other things like take photos, surf the web, etc.
    You do realise we're discussing the prospects of PureView on Windows Phone 8, right? IE10 is no slouch of a web browser.

    So to me there is not doubt that current lumia can be fitted with pureview technology. I'm not an expert so...
    The reason why the 808 takes such nice pictures is because it has a fantastic camera. It's a massive 41MP sensor, which the current Lumias do not have. I don't see much advantage in using PureView on these crappy sensors, because the pictures won't look amazing even at 2MP or something similar.

    I bet we see a reworked 808 running WP8 (800x480 screen, Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM) along with a higher-spec flagship toting a toned down implementation of PureView (16MP sensor with a much smaller lens?). That 41MP snapper made the 808 rather chuncky - too fat for a flagship. Plus, this way they have a lot of wiggle room with advertising - they have a sexy high-end flagship that's as sleek and powerful as anything else on the market, and 'the World's most powerful cameraphone'.

    Ive been using the Lumia 900 for the past few weeks, and its a great phone. Its also an excellent example of just how far the Windows Phone platform has come since its debut a year and a half ago.

    I believe that the 808 has a processor in it that is dedicated to just image processing for the camera.

    Nokia may need to rework some things if they want it to process images using one of the cores of a general purpose cpu.

    41mp of information is a lot to process. Even if the actual image output ends up being 8mp.

    If there is a toned down version for WP8, I imagine that the sensor would still be at the 30+ mp range. It has to be high enough where a pixel can get enough detailed info from surrounding pixels before a pixel color is chosen.

    PureView is one of the differentiators for Nokia, they will want to get that tech in one form or another on as many of their devices as possible. At least on the mid/high end devices. Can't wait to see it on WP8 be it in 16ish MP mode, or the higher versions.

    Uhh.... yeah that's why I asked the question. What's IE10 got to do with it?

    This guy had the same thought as I did LOL. I'm not hating on the idea I just don't see it as being all important. Also I took a look at the pix he took with Pureview and I wasn't that impressed.

    Oh yes please.
    Recently there was a time window when Nokia 808 was available (was sold out immediately) at a local distributor. I got weak cause I couldn't wait for THAT camera. Swapping my simcard forth and back now. Amazing camera, this. And, believe it or not, the os is not as bad as many make it sound! It's a bit Android-ish without the hundredthousands of apps.
    So, I brought myself into a terrible situation. When having my SIM in the 808, I'm missing the livetiles, the EASY way to set up email, wordament, audible and the sheer smoothness. When having the SIM in my Lumia 800, I'm missing the camera, the music player (Music sounds better on the Nokia 808 than on the Lumia due to dolby sorround. Plus there is an equalizer) and the better connectivity options.
    Dear Nokia, please don't go broke. And please, when building a Lumia pureview, don't forget to also add dolby surround and rich recording. Thanks!

    Update: I've read a rumour that you'll have bluetooth filetransfer and usage of phone as a mass storage device. I'd welcome that.

    I have a 710 and music sounds quite poor on it, but that is also true of any iPod / iPhone to a lesser degree. I don't take my Sansa out anymore because the 710 is just more convenient but I miss the sound quality. It's like there's a boost on the bass and treble, making the midrange frequencies hollow. :dry
