The Nokia 808 PureView is a Symbian Belle-based smartphone that sports a heart-attack inducing 41MP Carl Zeiss camera paired with a Xenon LED flash that's guaranteed to take the best pictures out there without you having to actually bring a camera. And apparently that's its biggest selling point—the camera.
The 808 PureView on paper is basically a mid-tier smartphone. The only problem with this phone is its running on a variation of the Symbian OS, which is fine if there were no Androids or WPs around (and then there's the Windows Phone OS issue).

It's a beautiful smartphone don't get me wrong. But with just a couple of new widgets added throughout an almost unchanged OS since its inception, the Nokia 808 PureView is a hard-sell. If it proves otherwise, then I'll gladly admit my mistake.

The Nokia 808 PureView is on local Nokia stores now and has an SRP of P26,550.00 in the Philippines (note: SRP). Ninja edit: CMK is selling the Nokia PureView 808 for P24,900.00. That's almost a two grand discount.
Bad news is, due to the phone's limited availability, it's currently experiencing lots of stock-outs. New units are bound to arrive in July. You can also reserve a unit at your nearest Nokia store.
My question to the readers out there: If you have P26,550.00, would you: A) Buy the Nokia 808 PureView because of what it offers; B) Buy a full-fledged DSLR camera or; C) Buy another smartphone with the same price tag from Samsung, LG, Apple, or HTC.
'Till my next installment.
