Not-A-Typo: Nokia Phone Comes With 41MP Camera

Following the World Mobile Congress? Well you can still go live on the action.  If you are already in, then you will be aware that Nokia is stealing the show with the release of it’s new Windows phones – new look, new feel et al. However perhaps the most mind boggling (what ever that means) is the 41 megapixel camera phone – and No, that wasn’t a typo!

Nokia’s announcement of the Symbian Belle-powered 808 PureView and its 41-megapixel camera took many (including me) by surprise this morning, but I was patiently waiting for sample shots. Just like Apple did to show off it’s all new optics and 8 megapixel camera on the iPhone 4S.

41 megapixels (mp), don’t meant you can shoot pictures to the size of tower banners (even though you could do 3X zoom in), it’s about creating amazing pictures at normal, manageable sizes. The camera  uses oversampling to combine up to seven pixels into one “pure” pixel, eliminating the visual noise found on other mobile phone cameras.

You can check out Nokia’s blog for a zip file of the full, uncompressed versions of  shots from the 808 Pureview.
