Yeah, you read that right. Nokia has really introduced a mobile phone(not a camera, mind you) with 41 freakin megapixels...!

The Nokia 808 Pureview was announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012. Nokia needed to do something extraordinary in order to stand out among the Monster Droids that were to be announced at the MWC and did they deliver.!

Here is what it offers specs wise-

SCREEN:- A 4-inch AMOLED touchscreen with nHD (360x640p) resolution. Its protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and can display 16 million colors.

CONNECTIVITY:- 3G, WIFI, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC.

MEMORY:- 16 gb internal memory which is upgradable to 32 gb via microsd. 512 mb RAM

OPERATING SYSTEM AND PROCESSOR:- Symbian Belle which runs on a 1.3 Ghz Arm 11 processor.

CAMERA:- A whopping 41 megapixel camera with autofocus, Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon AND Led flash, 3x lossless zoom and face detection. It can also record videos in full HD at 1080p and 30 fps. The secondary video camera can record VGA videos at 30 fps.

Probably the only fault you can find with this phone is the Absolutely Obsolete Operating system. Why Symbian you ask ? It is because the Pureview project was started 5 years from now. A time when Nokia's current flagship OS Windows Phone Mango was not in existence.

But ofcourse there are rumors of a Pureview camera coming to a Lumia device too. The Nokia 808 won the MWC'S Best New Device Award but Nokia's shares fell 6% after the device's announcement. The camera samples from the device look promising but practically who needs a 41 mp camera ? The phone will be available 2 months from now and the pricing is unknown.

After the suffering a Devastating Earthquake and a biting Divorce, Sony is now blasting on all Cylinders. Sony wants that that illusive throne of top Smartphone-maker.

An evidence of this determination is the new Xperia Sola. The device was previously known from its codename Pepper. Like other recent xperia phones it does not have the translucent strip near the bottom but the middle of the phone gives the impression that the upper part is floating. Very Unique and Innovative and we expect nothing less from Sony, do we ? Check some specs below:

SCREEN: The screen is a 3.7 inch capacitive unit with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine. Its Sony's Reality Diplay with a resolution of 480x854 pixels. It features 16 million colours.
