Nokia's 808 PureView a final Symbian hurrah?

All together now

When Nokia unveiled the Nokia 808 PureView at this year's Mobile World Congress, it shocked us twice. First, because the smartphone boasts a camera capable of capturing 41 megapixels of digital information, and second because it runs Symbian Belle OS instead of Microsoft's Windows Phone platform.

Why is the camera module so enormous? That's because the PureView uses a physically larger sensor and lens to capture more light. It shows.

I like the 808 PureView's dedicated HDMI port. There are DLNA-compatible apps as well if you prefer the untethered viewing experience.

You can really see the camera's protrusion from this angle.

The PureView's heft isn't surprising when you think about the larger, heavier components inside.
