Nokia 808 PureView via Nokia Connects
Nokia Connects picked up on my subtle request about getting a trial Nokia 808 PureView for Nokia Innovation and Katie has sent us ones. I will be reviewing the device for the first part and Lenny will have it for the 2nd part of a 3 week trial. The 808 PureView is a Symbian device with incredible optics (41 MP), Xenon flash, NFC and a large 4′ screen. It comes in three colors: black, white, red and it’s even released in the US after winning awards at the MWC in Barcelona earlier this year. The suggested retail price is US $699 but prices have come down drastically, you can get the white version w/ US warranty for $619.99 (11% discount).
In preparation for it’s arrival (don’t understand why it takes DHL 2 days to come to NJ and only 1 day to NY), I have compiled a list of apps that I am installing after I have setup the device:
Swype I believe this is a must have if you can’t stand the Symbian S^3 keyboard.
Tweetian Have not used this twitter client, but will definitely give it a try. I want to see if I would revert back to Gravity, the first app I installed on my N8.
Nokia Pulse (beta) I am a big fan of this app and have been using it since it was announced at Nokia World last year. Nokia Pulse is still in beta and can be downloaded from Betalabs.
I recently purchased a 64 GB micro SD and will check if I will be able to use it on the Nokia 808 PureView.
I will upload the pics to the NokiaInnovation Flickr page and will definitely not try to bore you with pictures of plants, flowers and buildings only :P. Click on this link to view pictures on Flickr taken with a Nokia 808 PureView.
Please let me know if there’s anything else I should test or install on the Nokia 808 PureView. You can leave a comment below or senda tweet. Once again, big thank you to Katie, and the rest of the Nokia Connects team for sending Nokia Innovation the 808 PureView.
