Update – Nokia 808 PureView coming to Orange, but not O2

Update   Nokia 808 PureView coming to Orange, but not O2The Nokia 808 Pureview is, it has to be said, a strange phone. Without “that camera” it’d probably be overlooked. It runs on a 1.3GHz CPU, it’s got a 360 x 640 pixel 4″ screen and has the usual WiFi, GPS, FM radio, microSD etc

However, it’s got a “bit” of a camera. The 41 megapixel camera means that people might just buy this as a camera first, and a phone second… or heck, perhaps just as a camera.

We got a full hands on with it a few months back and now you can too, with both Orange saying that it’ll arrive on July 8th.

Update – Earlier we told you that O2 were about to get the device too, but it seems that this was a false lead. O2 have “no plans” to range the handset and have told us…

We pride ourselves on offering our customers a range of the best devices on the market. Although we aren’t selling the Nokia Pureview, we’re continuing to work with Nokia on future products.

    Or just wait until WP8 comes out with the new Nokia devices, one will surely have this camera tech attached to it in the autumn.

      “one will surely have this camera tech attached to it”

      ‘A’ Pureview camera; not ‘this’ Pureview camera… WP8 likely won’t be able to accommodate anything beyond 20 MP; mind you that’s nothing to scoff at either!

      I kinda doubt they’ll be able to shoehorn it into a WP8 device by this fall already, though, but they might surprise me…!

    Also seems that EE are not planning to paunch it either based on reports on other tech websites.
