Nokia 808 PureView and Why I'm Sold On It

It's about the convenience of having a (capable) all-in-one device, but all mid to high-end phones offer this. I have lots of contacts, calendar entries, SMS messages etc on my current Nokia N79. Also, I am satisfied with the camera quality (in daylight) of N79. So, we are only going higher the with 808. Also, it would be touch, which everyone has these days. I will only be happy when I upgrade my N79 to 808.

As far as apps are concerned, yes, there are not so many apps in Nokia Symbian, but I guess the top 0.5% of apps from Apple Store and Android Market reach here like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Cut The Rope etc, so it's acceptable. Also, with job, leisure time also gets reduced.

My friend who has an HTC Sensation XL and Nokia N8 tells me that battery life of Nokia is better than Android mobiles.

Choose your ecosystem carefully

I am sold to Nokia, but sharing my views here so that you can objectively weigh options before buying an expensive phone, and getting locked in a particular ecosystem like Symbian, Android, iPhone, BlackBerry etc.

Dear Reader, please be aware that this is important. Be any ecosystem, no matter what the pros and cons are, whatever the mass appeal is, once you invest money and time in it, it may become difficult to change from it later.

Wishing you fun with your mobile!
