The last time we played with the Nokia PureView 808 was at MWC, where I came away very impressed with the device and what I saw in terms of image quality from the camera. For those unfamiliar with the PureView 808, the smartphone packs a huge 1/1.2" 41 MP CMOS sensor and runs Symbian Belle. While I'm still waiting on our PureView 808 review unit (and look forward to talking about its optical system), Nokia today has answered a lingering question about availability for customers in the US. The PureView 808 will be available through at some point in the future (no exact date was given) for $699 unlocked.

Potential PureView 808 shoppers can sign up to be notified when the Amazon preorder page is live on the PureView 808 page. The PureView 808 includes the proper UMTS bands for AT&T HSPA+, however it lacks AWS for T-Mobile HSPA+ and will instead work on GSM/EDGE for those subscribers. Update: The Nokia Conversations blog and PureView 808 specs page incorrectly ommitted AWS support, when the device does in fact support AWS and will work on T-Mobile HSPA+.

    Nokia has already stated a WP7/8 version of this phone will be coming in the months after the launch of the Symbian version. Nokia are working with MS to get it out, obviously it's better for everybody that way :).

    The 808 PureView has the same 3.5G specifications as the N8, covering HSDPA (Pentaband) HSUPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100. Shouldn't this work on T-mobiles 3G network too?

    The Nokia spec pages were incorrect - it does in fact support AWS and thus T-Mobile's 3G/4G (whatever you want to call it) HSPA+ network, single carrier.

    So the follow-up to the sleek and elegantly designed Lumia phones is a frankenstein phone? Nokia will get what they deserve with this amalgamation.
