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.
