Nokia USA tweeted an image showing the Lumia 1020 compared to other cameras (non-phones) and their prices. We can spot cameras from Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and Nikon, all obviously presented as costing more than the Windows Phone 8 device. However, the image is misleading, because, as we already mentioned, the Lumia 1020 costs $49.99 only with a 2-year contract agreement. Otherwise, its regular price at AT&T is $609.99.
The Lumia received the latest Black software update, which improved its camera capabilities even more. Other than that, you’ll get a 4.5-inch AMOLED display with 768 x 1280 pixels, LTE, 2GB of RAM, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 32GB of internal memory, and a 2,000 mAh battery.
AT&T is selling the Lumia 1020 in three color versions (black, white, yellow), and all are included in the new deal.
Is $49.99 a price that can make you buy the Lumia 1020 (assuming that you're looking for a WP handset)? Or would you rather choose the larger, newer Lumia 1520, which costs as low as $99.99 at AT&T?
