Nokia acquires Scalado technologies to improve its smartphone cameras

15 Scalado logoIf you’re a fan of the cameras on Nokia’s smartphones, you’ll be pleased at the latest news surrounding the company. Nokia announced today that it has acquired technologies, developers and intellectual property from Scalado. With this acquisition, along with Nokia’s own imaging teams (who came up with PureView), they will be focusing on creating the best cameras for Nokia’s next generation phones. While we’re not sure what this collaboration is capable of, but it should be pretty impressive.

Nokia was the first company to manufacture a camera phone back in 2002, and was the first to release an autofocus 12-megapixel camera (Nokia N8) and earlier this year it released the 41-megapixel camera-toting Nokia 808 PureView. Perhaps a phone that’s capable of replacing DSLRs? Only time will tell.
