[table] [tr] [td][QUOTE]A 41-megapixel camera phone? That's what Nokia unveiled Monday at Mobile World Congress with the new PureView 808 smartphone. The device has that 41-megapixel sensor along with Carl Zeiss optics. There's also Dolby Headphone technology that Nokia says can transform stereo content into a personal surround sound experience over any set of headphones, as well as Dolby Digital Plus for 5.1 channel surround sound playback. MORE: Google says 850,000 Android devices activated daily There is some confusion over what a 41-megapixel camera means. In simple terms, Nokia explains the camera is taking in a lot of information. In reality, you can capture pictures at 5-, 8- and 38-megapixel resolutions, giving users the ability to blow up pictures or zoom in with great detail. Nokia plans to move the PureView technology to other devices, but it's currently available only on a Symbian phone hitting European markets in May for 450 Euros (just over $600). Nokia also announced plans to expand its Lumia line of Windows Phones. One new model called the Lumia 610 is targeted at a younger audience, and said to be the most affordable of the four Lumia devices Nokia will sell at 189 Euros ($253). Microsoft wouldn't comment on U.S. availability. Lumia 610 makes nice with Microsoft's Xbox Live games and features a number of Nokia services including Nokia Transport, which provides suburban tram, bus and train schedules across numerous countries.[/QUOTE][/td] [td][IMG]http://i.usatoday.net/communitymanager/_photos/technology-live/2012/02/27/nokiax-inset-community.jpg[/IMG][/td] [/tr] [/table] [url]http://content.usatoday.com/communities/technologylive/post/2012/02/nokia-unveils-smartphone-with-41-megapixel-camera/1#.T0utdjhv-NY[/url]
Too bad all these pixels are useless when the sensor is crap.
