Nokia’s Beastly 41MP 808 PureView Phone Not Coming to North America

Nokia caused quite a ripple in the mobile phone market last week by announcing its new 41-megapixel 808 PureView smartphone. However, if you live in North America and have been drooling over the phone, here’s some bad news: Nokia isn’t planning to sell the phone on our continent. On the 808’s official product page, Nokia has included a footnote that says “Excluding North America” for the phone’s global availability. The reason may be that US carriers aren’t willing to subsidize the $600 phone and aren’t interested in Nokia’s Symbian Belle OS. On the bright side, rumor has it that Nokia is working to bring its PureView technology to Windows Phones.
