Nokia PureView 808 coming first to India & Russia this May only

Nokia has today announced that the Nokia’s revolutionary PureView 808 will start rolling out & hit the shelves in May itself and India & Russia are the first countries to have it. Announced at MWC 2012, Nokia PureView 808 is based on Nokia’s PureView Technology that represents highest level smart phone imaging experiences, bringing together high-performance sensors, exclusive Carl Zeiss optics, and Nokia developed imaging algorithms.

For me, Nokia PureView 808 is more like a phone embedded into a Camera. It features 4 Inch 16:9 nHD (640 x 360 pixels) AMOLED ClearBlack Display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, 16 GB internal memory, up to 48 GB external microSD memory card support, 1400 mAh Li-ion Battery, NFC, HDMI & plenty more. It comes in 3 colors, Black, White & Red. BUT its main focus feature is its 41MP Camera at the back. Here are the Full Camera Features:
