Oery: why Symbian.... why ?

Fingers crossed I sure hope if you're right in 3 months time we get some sort of PV tech inside the WP8 phones.

As mention in the DPR review (page 4) and also elsewhere (check out All About Symbian and GSMArena sites) the PV technology started 5 years ago when Symbian was the only OS available to Nokia development team. The code/drivers also special written to work with the custom chipset(s) inside the 808. Surely it takes time to re-compile the code to work on WP7.5/8.0

I own the Nokia N8 and now also the 808 and find Symbian Belle OS is not all that bad....not the latest or greatest....sure the max. screen resolution is stuck at nHD (640 x 360) and single core CPU but there still some niche features on Symbian (e.g. offline Maps, FM transmitter, etc) that not able to replicate by Android yet

Steve Bingham: Really crummy audio and video! Sorry.

I just got the 808 late last month and the stills, video/sound is very good (for an always with you, pocket-able smartphone).
It records stereo audio at 48KHz@128Kbps AAC and the 1080p video is MPEG4 (H264) at 30fps@19.3Mbps (taken from MPC-HC properties tab).

I'd say camera-wise it improved over the previous Nokia N8 and is way ahead of 90% of its rivals in this aspect. Suggest reading the AAS and GSMArena reviews.

Symbian Belle OS is improved over previous versions and is fine for general purpose use but as stated, the amount of 3rd party Apps is limited now due to Nokia partnering with Microsoft, going forward. Perhaps not for power users who really needs a lot of apps. Surely Nokia will port the PureView tech over to their next gen Win8 phones by next year.

I compared it to S100 and G12, the default 5Mp PureView IQ and NR is better, when lighting conditions are equal. The 808 has no IS (or VR), so the P&S cameras has hand-hold advantage at max telephoto zoom and low light.
