BARCELONA, Spain--Nokia isn't just about Windows Phone devices. At Mobile World Congress, the company unveiled the Symbian-powered 808 PureView. Not your ordinary camera phone, it has a 41-megapixel shooter.
The touch screen is easy on the eyes and offers several pages that you can customize with widgets and shortcuts. At bottom is a Home button and the power control.
Nokia is making a big push with social media connectivity. Though his demo phone was not connected to a data network, an app that highlights updates from your friends sits front and center on one of the home pages.
But the real story of the 808 PureView is the 41-megapixel camera. The viewfinder has user-friendly controls that activate the flash, access editing controls, switch to video mode, and open the photo gallery.
