Nokia had the world buzzing when it announced the 808 PureView at the Mobile World Congress in February.
The 41-megapixel monster has finally found its way to the Indian shores.

The 1400 mAh Nokia BV-4D powers the smartphone.
The battery can be removed to reveal the microSD and Micro-SIM (right).
The white smartphone is a bit of a dust magnet. The 808 PureView is also available in black colour.
The phone is 17.95 mm thick at the camera and 13.95mm at its thinnest.

The 808 runs Nokia Belle (Symbian 10.1) that brings improvements like pull-down status/ notification bar and free-form resizable home-screen widgets.
The typical Nokia menu screen that hasn't changed much over the years, other than adding a dash of colour and a few new icons.
The Phone Switch app that offers to import contacts, messages and data from another Nokia over Bluetooth. It worked great in our tests.
