Microsoft Store to have both 32GB and 64GB versions of the Nokia Lumia 1020 in stock
0. phoneArena 12 Jul 2013, 12:28 posted on
If you're wondering whether your local Microsoft Store will be carrying both the 32GB and 64GB versions of the Nokia Lumia 1020, the answer is "Yes"; for many wanting the phone, 32GB of storage is not enough, especially since there is no microSD slot on the handset. And while it was originally believed that Telefonica owned carriers would be the only place to obtain the 64GB variant, it will also be available from your local Microsoft Store...

I wonder the price for the unlocked 64GB model will cost. $700-800?

I think it will cost less than $800, if it costs $800 or more, it will be damn expensive. The unlocked 64GB iPhone 5 is $849, it's overpriced.

Will this phone have an SD card as if it does with 64gb of memory that would be awesome however on my 8S I can't move apps to the SD card :(

i was sadden as it didn't had expandable storage function, but the camera had BLOWN ME OFF MY MIND!

Looking at the teardown, there's no room for one. They could have made it as fat it fatter than a 920, with built-in wireless charging and maybe room for a slot, but Gen people probably would whine about the bulk and weight. I am disappointed they didn't put a slot in on the Camera Grip accessory. They could have sacrificed a few mAh for expandable storage.

Goodluck selling 1000 units to the die hard nokia fans, buy a proper camera to take photos people, this thing is a just an in-between, nothing special rubbish specs. Get yourself an excellent smartphone like GS4, HTC One and xperia z and buy a descent camera which can take much better images than this phone. Windows phone OS makes it even worse with flip flap tiles all over the place, no uniformity at all.

Hahaha LOL.....the point of "flip flap" tiles is so you can order then in whatever way you want even a grid like iOS so you can't say there's no uniformity.....and why get 2 devices when you can have one after all you don't have to have a smartphone you could just get a phone and a laptop but no people buy a smartphone......
People like jackhammer and abcdefgh watch on in amazement as they actually see me defending WP....LOL

a bit amazed but not too I would say:)
the guy you are talking too raising up the same old and irrelevant argument which is ”buy a separate device´ and the answer I may provide him with is´what for if I can do everything using just one´.

those who want to have the best camera in a phone will prefer this phone. However don't see any difference in 1020 and 920 apart from camera. Nokia thinks that a smartphone is nothing more than a camera. I want nokia to make a true smartphone too and not just camera. for general public who wants a good camera phone but not as expensive as flagship devices then they'll go for s4 zoom. By the looks of s4 zoom, they'll assume that its the best camera phone..

You claimed to have a 920 as I recall, so I am not surprised. Good to see you being rational.

Box what do you think of yellow for this phone? I now have a cyan l920 ( got rid of the red one for the cyan)? I wish the 1020 had more colors like matte red

HTC One, GS4 and xperia z are more than adequate to take those fine photos, why carry an ugly monstrosity like this lumia and get half baked images and barely enough juice to run any video/image editing software, heavy apps/games. Carrying 2 or more items is just a part of life and most people do that, camera, tablets, phones etc....if you seriously want your photos, please get a descent camera, and for multimedia, GS4, htc one and xperia z is leaps and bound better than this man
9. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1635; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Wait are you saying the gs4, one and xperia z could take photos like the Nokia......hahahahahahahaha....anyway you do realise the 1020 doesn't need hardly any processing power to run its OS so all that leftover power can be used to ruin image editing software.....so yes it can run a software like that and who uses something like Photoshop on their phone anyway!
11. Bootutu (Posts: 195; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
We use Photoshop on android because we can and have the hardware to make those beautiful photos, understand the comprehension " are more than adequate to take those fine photos" what left over? check out the reviews by people who bought heavy games and apps on even lumia 920, they stutter, jitter and struggle like hell. So yeah, they will sell even less huhuhuhuhu!
16. iguano (Posts: 101; Member since: 10 May 2012)
the nokia editing tools are amazing dude, you can use photoshop on your pc but for your phone, the nokia apps are more than enough.
22. cam-whore (Posts: 164; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
or you probably use photoshop because you need to get decent pics on android? Im not sure about you, but last I heard Android was a software NOT A HARDWARE. Just wondering why they could have paid someone with knowledge to troll, but they settled for you...very smart...

Glad to see the 64GB option for the diehards. I'll have to see the price difference. Either way this is the phone I've been waiting for. A phone with a camera that won't look like crap when digitally zoomed. I've sampled every major smartphone camera from droids to iPhone and that's been a problem for all of them. Now you have a near dslr quality camera right in the phone.
And pay no attention to the Android fanboy telling you to buy a separate camera and an android phone that takes "adequate" pics. Who wants to carry a giant camera around with them if they aren't a paid photographer?
Does this guy have a separate GPS, and mp3 player too? Why not carry a laptop since smartphone keyboards are only adequate next to a real one? I think not.
And no quad core processor? No problem. My midrange Windows Phone runs smoother and faster than any Droid I ever had. Only android needs quad core because its so resource hungry.
and calling the 1020 a monstrous phone is just laughable. Its smaller than the previous Gen Lumia. If you think this phone is too big what about that huge S4 or Note 2? You must think those are even more monstrous.
Don't judge iPhone or WP phones by Android specs. It's just unhelpful and uninformed. Since you only know android, how about you save your hate for the the Galaxy S4 Zoom Bootutu. Unless you actually like that 'monster"...

You dont need huge processing power to run on some tiles
Ios doents need huge processing power too for running some row of icon but it would lag if you change the deafult launcher to something like dreamboard or winterboard (tested it on my ipad)
23. apple4never (Posts: 1018; Member since: 08 May 2013)
if you get lag on dreamboard or winterboard run ioverclock theme for winterboard. it overrides the plist data underclocking your ipad

Sadly what I need is smartphone not cameraphone :(
If this phone running android it would be different for me

I had high hopes that Nokia would make the next flagship with expandable storage... *sigh* I guess I could make do with 64GB. Assuming it ever comes to Malaysia, I really hope it does. I've been waiting for a PureView Windows Phone for a long time...

im waiting for the honami before i do anything irrational

I thought I read the 32GB model was goint to be $608 at the MS store, I can't believe the extra 32GB would cost more than $100 - $150.
