Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK): Current price $4.22
Nokia is said by The Verge to be planning to introduce a ‘proper’ Pureview Windows Phone 8 handset in 2013, codenamed the Nokia EOS. The site also has learned that the firm is developing a Windows Phone 8 handset featuring a camera sensor similar to that of the 41MP giant found on the Pureview 808 smartphone.
