That pretty much makes this the best deal on the planet right now. The timing is certainly not an accident as Nokia builds up some anticipation with announcements to be made at Nokia World in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emerites next week.
The Lumia 1020 is an AT&T exclusive in the United States, and it is likely to remain that way. AT&T is expected to offer the Lumia 1520 following its formal announcement which will give the carrier an outstanding Lumia line-up, with a price-point to fit any budget. The Lumia 920 is now only $0.99 on contract, the Lumia 925 can be had for $99 and the Lumia 1020 is $199 with a two-year agreement.
We do not expect AT&T to match Microsoft’s move with regard to the Lumia 1020, as that device is aggressively priced right where it is. That makes taking a trip to one of only a couple-dozen Microsoft stores worth it.
Check out our review of the Lumia 1020 if you need further motivation to pick up a slick Windows Phone device with a monster of a camera. The deal is good through November 3rd, though we imagine that supplies will not last that long.
