One of the big – or indeed only – surprises at this year’s Mobile World Congress was the Nokia 808 PureView, shown off first thing on the Monday morning. Bonus points for waiting till the bloody conference actually started, Noks.
The Nokia 808 PureView is notable for having a whopping 41MP camera, and running, er, Symbian Belle. But Microsoft's big baldy Ballmer can dry those tears, as the tech is reportedly on its way to Windows Phone.
Speaking to Finnish publication Aamuleti, Nokia’s chubby-cheeked (am I allowed to say that?) senior vice president, Jo Harlow, confirmed that PureView goodness will make the move to Microsoft’s OS.
Lady Harlow whispered: “I can’t say precisely when, but it will not take very long.”
Presumably we’ll have to wait for Windows Phone Apollo, as the current range of Windows Phones – powered by Mango – has maxed out at 8MP in the camera department.
Ah well, that’s yet another reason why I’m thinking: Second place for Windows Phone 7? Yeah, probably.
