If you have extra cash in your pocket, Nokia and Amazon are ready to bring your Nokia 808 PureView jealousy to an end.

Today, Nokia announced that it will sell the Symbian OS phone, famous for its jaw-dropping 41-megapixel camera, via Amazon to U.S. customers. It'll cost you $699.99 for the unlocked handset, in addition to the cost of a SIM card and AT&T plan. You can technically use the handset on T-Mobile's network as well, but it'll top out at 2G speeds.

Nokia gave no timeline on its blog post, but you can sign up for alerts.

A hulking sensor is responsible for the smartphone camera's impressive megapixel muscle. CNET describes just how the clever camera works here.
