Nokia PureView 808 to Be Sold Unlocked in the U.S.

Nokia's North American chief Chris Weber said that the PureView 808 41-megapixel camera phone will be sold in the U.S., though not by U.S. wireless network operators. Instead, Nokia will make an unlocked version available that will be compatible with AT&T's 3G network. "We'll figure out a way to make that available in the U.S. in the next couple of months," he said in an interview with PCMag. Weber also said that the company understands how important Verizon Wireless is in the U.S. marketplace and is "working hard to make that a reality." Nokia's Lumia 710 and Lumia 900 are available from T-Mobile USA and AT&T, respectively.
The Lumia 900 is Nokia's most important smartphone launch ever. Microsoft and AT&T have a lot riding on this device, too, as its success will shape the future of Windows Phone in the US and beyond.

Congrats Nokia, you will sell 100 phones
So Nokia wants to put out an awesome camera phone, Why not put it in something they're promoting like windows ? Why bother with a dead OS like symbian. Really bizarre. Nokia needs to fire Stephen Elop before he bankrupts the company.
