I can't stand WP, I find it horrible to use.
BUT these photos! OMG, just look at those photos!!! They're stunning even when fully zoomed in! I wanna get this phone just for the camera...

...i believe a lot of people will consider N1020 because of its camera...so WP numbers, relevance and interest is (will) grooving rapidly.
Days when people got iPhone because of quality lens are gone...

look at the pic11, have you ever seen a bit of "bokeh" in any other phone camera??? Even some of the small compacts are not able to do this...
I have DSLR, but not taking everywhere with me...this might be a good companion to it - you know, portability. I do not carry my bag with heavy DSLR body with 2-3 lenses everywhere.

I hope Nokia knows that its losing so many potential customers. I would buy this phone in a heartbeat with such an amazing camera, that thing is ridiculous! However, i will never buy a windows phone.

IKR! I would love to have this camera, but I'm not going to a Windows Phone. At least not in the foreseeable future anyways. Really nice work!

speechles...it won't be worse than 808 which left competition in dust
if it's better, and it is, Nokia haters will be salivating in silence toying their androlags.
Wait for more pics and videos made by owners
Simply amazing.

Still gt honami. Can't claim 1020 king yet. Wait for honami to release first and don't reply me like an angry nokia fan

do I? You're waiting for honami. I've already got my treasure. And be honest. If honami come close to this monster it will be impressive. But only a bit. remember that Nokia developed this tech for a mobile phone, didn't take a camera and change it into a smartphone.

If 1020 is better than honami when honami officially comes out I will admit that nokia is the king of smartphone camera. I just need to wait for both to come out first to make a judgement

Everything is same
Except camera and updated 2gb ram
No full hd display(fhd could have been a vast improvement)
No card slot
Not slim(not a major problem)
Again same design(could have changed atleast design)
Same old processor
Same old version of windows
and last price 300?? On contract??
Lumia 920 is available for 449 off contract

That's the point!
#NokiaEpicFail when you can take the Lumia 920 for 300+€ LESS!
Maybe in the future they will do only cameras that can do calls and sms

Agree
adding just few extra bucks will make 920 that also without contract
And atlast everything is same
Software or hardware
we need more than a camera

If you need more than a camera go get yourself an S4 cause you seem to be so green with envy repeating yourself in every post. Just maybe your Android is missing out something and you're so afraid to admit it.
And for your information 920 does not have lossless zoom. This is the amalgamation of 920 and 808 pureview; the perfect camera ever made on a phone.

you´re a Nokia hater so why whining if you´re not going to buy any?
Nokia has done its best. Only os limited their creativity. But it will change when gdr3 will be unveiled. Nokia showed they can use their amazing tech on the new platform and now it´s going to be only better.
And I repeat again...what for put some humongus cpu and gpu if os and even this monstrous camera work flawlessly???? Give me one good reason without showing off.

What is ur problem man??
I am the buyer
Who r u to stop what i want and what i need??
i am the one who has to pay and then i have to be the one who has to ask what i need in a smartphone
If i want a wp to act same like an android
Then this is my demand and i am keeping this in front of nokia or ms
Because once again atlast i am the one who will spend on it
If u r going to spend on my behalf then i wont utter a single word

my problem are people like you. Always unhappy, always pain in the 4 letters. Thks is wring, that is incorrect. Instead of enjoying tech which is undoubtely groundbreaking you prefer grudging.
If you whine about it I safely assumed you weren´t going to buy this device. They are not going to change into ´make a wish´ foundation because of such frustrated and always unhappy andro users like you. Get over it. Does your precious samsung always listen to the customers.. No.

The only reason to purchase this phone is for the camera. In that case, I can purchase a DSLR and just take even better pictures with it, for around the same price. Other than that, it really is just a regurgitated Lumia 900 series. They didn't go above and beyond making their phone top notch in any other hardware aspect other than the camera. Which is not good enough. There are plenty of competing smartphones with camera modules that handle themselves well enough, while doing pretty much everything else better.

They could have come up with new unique features
All same as 920
was expecting a lot from a flagship device

Listen to This nokia please
At the time of advertisement
What will u tell customers??
Again main focus on camera?
The people who are commenting here
Only those people are in real tech world
But how will u insist those people , with the same old hardware and software which are outside phonearena??
everything same??
Samsung when make advertisements they show use of their GIMMICK features(may be not for use)
But a vast of population is attracted

yes, this stupid part of population who believe that additional 2 cores or smart feats will make their life easier. Instead of enjoying fluid experience you want more and more only because oems say so.
