Mega-Powerful Camera Phone, Super-Fast Gadgets Dazzle at Mobile Show
Mobile phone giant Nokia on Monday unveiled a phone with a powerful 41 Megapixel camera as it attempts to reposition itself back at the forefront of the mobile market.
The phone is among a dazzling array of new gadgets unveiled so far at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, an annual event that showcases the industry’s latest innovations.
Among them is a Chinese phone that claims to be the world’s fastest and another that carries an in-built projector.
The unrivaled camera capabilities of Nokia’s 808 PureView, which runs the company’s Symbian operating system, caused ripples of surprise among Congress delegates who predicted few surprises thanks to pre-event leaks and rumors.
The 41 Megapixels put the phone in the same league — in terms of photo resolution — as professional cameras costing thousands of dollars.
