We were under the impression that Nokia's 808 PureView wouldn't ever make it to the US — and nor would any other future Symbian devices, for that matter — but there's hope for American cameraphone fans yet. Nokia's US president Chris Weber told PC Magazine that the company plans to "figure out a way" to sell the phone Stateside, with an unlocked, AT&T compatible version due in the upcoming months.

What's not clear right now is exactly how the PureView will be sold. Nokia could go the Google route and offer it themselves, or they could be seeking wider distribution deals. Whatever form the US release ends up taking, at least the FCC shouldn't prove to be a further obstacle — interested parties had better start saving their pennies, though, as the unlocked PureView came in at €599 (about $776) in Italy.
