PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "We're almost exactly a year on from our first hands-on with the Nokia 808 PureView, hailed by me, somewhat tongue in cheek, as Nokia's custom design for me, from my own personal checklist. Insane camera, Xenon flash, replaceable battery, FM transmitter, large OLED screen, deafening speaker, and so on. All present and correct. One year on and, thanks to a brace of updates and third party additions, I find myself just as in love with the 808 now as when I first popped my microSIM card in." I'm back to my HTC 8X by now, since the Nokia E7's battery was terrible - 4-6 hours of mild use, tops, even with a brand new, official Nokia battery. My 8X gives me three days on the same usage pattern.

What about the camera responsiveness ? I mean, that's a load of pixels for a 1 GHz single core ARM with only 512 MB of memory.

It's an OS limitation as well. Symbian was able to handle the requirements to handle the PureView tech in the 808. Windows Phone 7 was not. No telling if WP 8 can or cannot.
