Nokia just unveiled an incredible camera phone called the 808 PureView during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The device features a stunning 41-megapixel camera. Nokia says this is only the beginning and that it will introduce the sensor into many more products in the future. The phone is expected to begin rolling out in May for 450 Euros and it will be available in a variety of colors.

Symbian has always enjoyed a reputation for producing impressive camera phones, and the Nokia 808 Pure View, has certainly upped the game.

As with other Nokia phones it uses Karl Zeiss lenses, but what makes this phone radically different is it features a sensor with an incredible 41 Megapixel capacity, either 7728×5354 in 16:9 format, or 7152×5368 in 4:3.

The phone uses a technique that Nokia calls over-sampling, to produce crystal clear, noiseless images with an effective resolution of 5 megapixels. The camera uses a dedicated graphics processing unit to combine algorithmically groups of up to seven pixels to produce one “super” pixel. The GPU processes one billion pixels a second.

In addition the massive over-sampling allows the camera to digitally zoom up to 4x with no loss in quality. Shooting video in full 1080p video allows for 3x zoom, or up to 6x zoom if shot in 720p definition.

This is Nokia's first smartphone to feature our exclusive new PureView technology, which completely blows away any prior expectations about the quality of camera phone photography.The Nokia 808 PureView features a 41-megapixel sensor with our highest performance Carl Zeiss optics to date and Nokia’s brand-new pixel oversampling technology.

It’s also a smartphone

Outside the camera, it’s also a great smartphone, of course! Inside, it’s got the latest Nokia Belle operating system with Feature Pack 1 enhancements. These enhancements allow improved performance, personalisation and entertainment options, with a new browser, the latest Nokia Maps and an improved notifications bar. One other great new feature is that the phone can deliver content recorded in surround sound to any stereo headphones, using technology from Dolby.

The screen is a four-inch, ClearBlack AMOLED display underneath Gorilla Glass, allowing for a big clear view of what’s going on, under any lighting conditions. Inside, there’s a 1.3GHz processor to keep everything humming. There’s 16GB of internal user memory, with support for MicroSD cards up to 32GB to contain all the pictures and video you’ll be shooting.

The device is remarkably pocketable considering how much there is inside. It’s only slightly larger than the Nokia N8 while the total weight, including the battery, is 169g. Talk time (over a 3G network) is rated at 6.5 hours, with a standby time of up to 540 hours.

Flipkart is launching music service this month – DRM Free, Priced at Rs. 10/

Flipkart in recent months has started expanding the number of products it sells— from books it has moved to mobiles, motherboards, and other products. Just last month reports came of Flipkart buying out rival online retail firm LetsBuy.com.

Now an exclusive news report from Plugged.in reveals that the website is planning to launch a music service, much on the lines of Amazon, which allow users to download mp3 songs for as low as Rs 10.

Now in India at some point we’ve all downloaded music, television shows, movies, illegally. As Songs.pk banned in India Flipkart’s latest offer of mp3′s at Rs 10 might sound like a good deal, and a good attempt to prevent piracy online.

What do you think? Will you buy a song for Rs 10?

Symantec’s pcAnywhere Source Code released on the popular Bittorrent indexing site The Piratebay where it quickly climbed into the top 5 seeded files of the Misc category.

What Anonymous Says :
"Symantec has been lying to its customers. We exposed this point thus spreading the world that ppl need" - #AntiSec #Anonymous

What Symantec Says :
Symantec can confirm that a segment of its source code has been accessed. Upon investigation of the claims made by Anonymous regarding source code disclosure, Symantec believes that the disclosure was the result of a theft of source code that occurred in 2006. Since 2006, Symantec has instituted a number of policies and procedures to prevent a similar incident from occurring.

Furthermore, there are no indications that customer information has been impacted or exposed at this time.

What products were impacted?

Our investigation continues to indicate that the theft is limited to only the code for the 2006 versions of Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition; Norton Internet Security; Norton SystemWorks (Norton Utilities and Norton GoBack); and pcAnywhere.

The hackers have already announced that they will also release the Norton Antivirus source code.

Final Question :

Should Norton and Symantec customers be worried about the source code release?

Symantec stated that user’s who have upgraded the products to the latest version have nothing to worry about.
