The latest Lumia runs Windows 8 Phone by Nokia have already certain PureView technologies, but for now, only the Nokia 808 PureView was the only real smartphone operator any sensor technology high performance. But things could change this year, according to the site The Verge said that Nokia would offer a true high-end smartphone PureView runs Windows Phone 8.
The Verge sources speak of a smartphone with the codename EOS. Embedding the technology PureView in photography (41 Megapixel), the Nokia EOS is the Finnish firm’s flagship that would display an aluminum shell. It should be presented in 2013 and is marketed in the U.S. the first time under the auspices of AT&T.
A premium sensor and a new look for this phone, so that probably will build on the name PureView to make a name in the fierce market of smartphones.
The iPhone 5 launch was “and still” big, that it turned out so big that it slowed the growth of Android in the US and the UK, according to Kantar World Panel.
The rest of the EU5 (France, Germany, Italy and Spain) saw just the opposite – Android’s share went up, iOS went down.
It should be noted that iPhone 5 was on sale for only a week in Q3 (even less in some markets) and is yet to launch in China and Brazil, so Q4 is bound to bring big gains for iOS.
Anyway, during this year’s Q3, the market share of iOS in US went up to 35.7%, compared to 21.5% during the same period last year. That’s a massive increase of 14.2 percentage points. Meanwhile Android dropped from 66.4% to 57.5%. Another notable decline is that of BlackBerry, which is now below Microsoft’s OS (which is currently at 2.9%).
In the UK, iOS market share increased by 9.9 percentage points to 18.1%, but Android went up too – from 53.4% to 58.2%. RIM still holds a respectable 8.8% there, while the WP share more than doubled. Symbian practically went extinct in the UK.
iOS shares declined in Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Australia, while Android’s shares increased in these markets. In Germany and Spain in particular, it’s almost complete domination with 77.8% and 82.7% respectively. In Brazil Android went from controlling a fifth of the market to half of it.
In EU5, iOS remained relatively constant, buoyed by its conquests in the UK, while Android went up by 16.2 percentage points. Windows saw decent gains, now controlling about 5% of the market, ahead of the former king, Symbian.

The Nokia 808 PureView has amazed us with its camera. Today we have a video that blown our eyes, the man used the 808 PureView rather than a professional cinema camera, and the results its mindblowing, the man ended up with an impressive 120-second video showcasing what the Nokia 808 PureView is capable of when in the hands of a someone who knows what he’s doing.
Here’s the test footage Christopher made for an upcoming project. Make sure to watching it in full HD. And be sure to give us your opinion after the break.
Here’s how the artist got these amazing shots :
I did a “Flat picture” profile in the phone by dialing down contrast, saturation and sharpness and underexposed some of the scenes to protect highlights. I also used a mattebox, and 4’4 polarizing, and for some of the brighter scenes a 4’4 ND filter 0.9. I later upscaled the footage in premiere pro to later crop it for 1:2.35 aspect ratio. I color-corrected quite heavily, because I think I pushed the contrast a little bit to much so it all looked very flat.
