Nokia 803 detailed, last of the Symbian Belles

What may very well be the final Symbian device on the market has been tipped and detailed, it having what sources are saying is the largest camera sensor on a mobile phone yet.

As foundations go it's a solid start, but make no mistake: it only gets tougher from here.
