Say what you like about Finnish manufacturer Nokia and its decision to put all its eggs in the Windows Phone basket, but one thing it (mostly) continues to get right is its camera stuff.
It’ll probably come as no surprise, then, to hear that the Finns are set to focus on pushing their camera goodness as we punch our way through space year 2013AD.
That’s what Nokia’s executive VP of sales and marketing, Chris Weber, tells the lovely Jessica Dolcourt of CNET in the back of a bus. For serious.
High-end lenses and sexy software algorithms are expected to make a big impression for Nokia in 2013.
At last year’s Mobile World Congress, the Finns introduced the Symbian-based Nokia 808 PureView, with its outrageous 41MP camera.
The question on many people’s lips is: When will we see a 41MP camera in a Nokia Windows Phone 8 device? Mobile World Congress is just around the corner, though the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are still relatively new.
In any case, Weber says Nokia will also “push the price point” in 2013, both up and down.
Good luck to you, sirs. As Martin was saying earlier in the week, Nokia’s Windows Phone range finally outsold Symbian – in Q4 2012. About time they had some good news.
