03 March 2012
Nokia 808 Pureview Named The GSMA's
'Best New Mobile Handset, Device Or Tablet'!
Nokia Conversations has announced that Nokia has won the award for “Best New Mobile Handset, Device or Tablet at Mobile World Congress 2012” for the Nokia 808 PureView, as voted by a panel of leading journalists and analysts at the show.
Jo Harlow, EVP smart devices, told Conversations after picking up the award: “It’s a fantastic award because it signifies that consumer experience counts.
It’s about technology, but it’s about how tech is used to make a consumer have a fantastic experience. The imaging is fantastic; the audio is fantastic; the navigation technology is fantastic.
“These are first signals that we are executing against our strategy. That we’re back. That we’re bringing great products to our consumers – and that this is just the beginning. There’s lot more to come.”
Harlow stressed that there was no room for complacency, adding: “We have a lot of work ahead of us. We’re still a challenger, and we are going to operate as we have done in this last year to deliver these great results.”
Later she spoke at the Nokia stand, and handed over the award to co-inventors Juha Alakarhu and Eero Salmelin, thanking the “hundreds of Nokia employees and engineers who have made this great device possible.”

The Nokia 808 PureView features a large, high-resolution 41 megapixel sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology. At standard resolutions (2/3, 5 and 8 megapixels) this means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture seven pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable.At high-resolution (38 megapixel maximum) it means the ability to capture an image, then zoom, reframe, crop and resize afterwards to expose previously unseen levels of details.
With superior low-light performance and the ability to save in compact file sizes for sharing in email, MMS, and on social networks, the Nokia 808 PureView makes it possible for anyone to capture professional looking images in any conditions.
Nokia 808 PureView - Zoom and zoom again
In addition to superior still imaging technology, the Nokia 808 PureView, also includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom and the world's first use of Nokia Rich Recording. Rich Recording enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality, previously only possible with external microphones.
The Nokia 808 PureView also features exclusive Dolby Headphone technology, transforming stereo content into a personal surround sound experience over any headphones and Dolby Digital Plus for 5.1 channel surround sound playback. Image: Nokia 808 PureView

"Nokia PureView imaging technology sets a new industry standard by whatever measure you use," said Jo Harlow, executive vice president of Nokia Smart Devices. "People will inevitably focus on the 41 megapixel sensor, but the real quantum leap is how the pixels are used to deliver breath-taking image quality at any resolution and the freedom it provides to choose the story you want to tell."
