You Can Get Nokia's Mega-Major 41MP 808 PureView Phone in the US After All

Nokia's 808 PureView may be more of a oddity than anything you'd actually want to buy, but at least now it's our oddity, too. The 41MP camera with a phone attached to it will finally wash up on America's shores at the end of this week, although like all good curios it comes at a cost.

Available exclusively through Amazon, the unlocked, off-contract 808 PureView will cost you $700, and will be compatible with either AT&T's 3G network or T-Mobile's 2G offering (the latter of which, just don't). That sounds like a lot of money—and it is—but it's worth remembering that unlocked phones are terribly pricey; the list price for an unshackled Galaxy Nexus is $800, for instance.
