Nokia PureView 808 not to be offered by UK networks


In some bad news for all those, who are hoping an upgrade on the Nokia’s new 808 PureView mega camera phone, all the UK networks seems to have jointly decided not to offer the phone. The Nokia PureView 808 was showcased at the Mobile World Congress trade show this year and had stolen everyone’s attention with its 41 mega pixel sensor.

But now it seems like it has not favoured the British stuffy old networks. The telecom companies like O2, T-Mobile , Orange and Vodafone have said that they do not intent to offer the phone. O 2 stated, “We pride ourselves on offering our customers a range of the best devices on the market. Although we aren’t selling the Nokia PureView, we’re continuing to work with Nokia on future products.”

However, if the users still want to get their hands on the phone then they will have to buy it SIM free for a hefty price of $500. On the other hand Samsung Galaxy S III is just ten pounds less and it is not likely that with PureView’s camera, the phone will be able to attract the customers.

This is also a blow to Nokia, who hoped that the new phone will be a clean hit among the users.
