The Nokia 808 PureView smartphone, along with its impressive 41 megapixel camera, will be available to consumers in the U.S. soon.
An unlocked and unsubsidized version of the handset will be sold on Amazon.com for $700. Pre-orders for the device start later this week, and prospective customers can sign up to be notified when the smartphone will be officially on-sale.
Those with the Nokia 808 PureView will be able to use a compatible SIM card from AT&T and will also be able to work under the T-Mobile network.

The 808 PureView has a 4-inch AMOLED ClearBlack touchscreen. It features a whopping 41 megapixel camera along with Nokia PureView imaging technology, Carl Zeiss optics, and high resolution sensors.
In addition to its imaging capability, the device includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom. The 808 PureView will also be the first phone to use Nokia Rich Recording which enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality.
Unlike Nokia’s other recent smartphones, this runs Symbian Belle, not Windows Phone. It does so on a 1.3 GHz single-core processor, and will have 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Other features include a microSD card slot, HDMI-out, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, and USB On-The-Go.
