Nokia 808 PureView now available for pre-order in the US
The Nokia 808 PureView has made the next step towards US availability - just a day after it was announced that the cameraphone monster would be sold stateside through Amazon, it's now available for pre-order.
As promised, the price is set at $699 SIM free. No carrier has stepped up to subsidize the 808 PureView yet, but the penta-band 3G support means the phone should work on both AT&T's and T-Mobile's networks. By the way, only the White color version is listed for now and it's not clear when the Red and Black variants will be available.
The actual shipping of the Nokia 808 PureView will begin on July 8, so it will be a while before US buyers will get to hold thephone in their hands. You can check out our blind test or see how the 808 stacks up against a Canon 5D Mark III to help pass the time.
