Nokia 808 PureView Up for Pre-Order in Italy for €599 ($785)

Unveiled back in February at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, one of the best camera phones that will soon be available on the market, Nokia 808 PureView has just gone up for pre-order in Italy.

That’s one month earlier than expected, as Nokia promised the smartphone would be launched on the market sometime in May, for a suggested retail price of €450 ($585).

However, an Italian retailer has just kicked off Nokia 808 PureView pre-orders for those who want to make sure they will be among the first to get it. 

Unfortunately, the phone is priced much higher than expected, as NStore.it offers the 808 PureView for no less than €599 ($785) outright.

Customers are required to pay a €99 ($130) fee in order to reserve the smartphone and another €500 ($655) later in May when the Nokia 808 PureView hits shelves. 

There’s more to it, as the retailer mentions that the contents of the sales package and the final price may be subject to change, so those who pre-order now may end up paying much more or exactly the suggested retail price.

The 808 PureView is powered by Nokia Belle operating system. The phone has a 1.3 GHz ARM 11 processor, 16GB of internal memory, 1GB of ROM, 512MB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).

The 41-megapixel rear camera is the main selling point of the smartphone. It features Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, Xenon flash and full HD (1080p) video recording.

With the new PureView technology, the smartphone’s camera can easily combine up to seven pixels into one “pure” pixel. 

It is also worth mentioning that the smartphone may be the world’s first video recording device that allows users to capture clips without any audio distortions whatsoever, though this has yet to be confirmed by users.
