Telefonica to get exclusive 64GB Nokia Lumia 1020 for European and Latin-American markets
Of course the device is all about the camera, and taking photos with the settings maxed out will take up huge amounts of space. Since the device will not accept microSD cards, users will need to have a plan in place with cloud storage as well as backing items up on their main computers.
One way to get some breathing room with such a beast of a camera is to have copious amounts of storage and it looks like Telefonica’s brands in Europe and Latin-America will have exclusive dibs on just that, a 64GB Nokia Lumia 1020. The device will launch in September and be an exclusive for customers of Movistar, Vivo, and O2 through the remainder of 2013.
Telefonica’s press release calls the device the Nokia Lumia Eros, and is part of a global agreement between Nokia and Spain based global carrier to be announced on July 11th. The release states:
This announcement is part of the Telefónica strategy to reinforce the smartphone portfolio and increase the ecosystem offer for their customers. Telefónica will actively promote Nokia Lumia Eros 64Gb, as part of Telefónica iconic smartphone offering.
Nokia Lumia Eros brings stunning innovations only found in the SLR cameras so far, like a 41 Mpixel sensor, 6 lenses, and high resolution zoom. Taking excellent photos has never been so easy, as complex settings are turned into easy adjustments with immediately visible results.
Eros 64Gb, for Telefónica customers, will have more than double capacity than the Eros standard version, extending the capability for customers to store large amount of content, up to 4,000 images or 6 hours of very high quality Full-HD video.
…of Telefónica, said “Telefonica is firmly committed to deliver the best and exclusive experiences to our customers as part of our connected smartphones offering. This moves us one step ahead, and reinforces our leading position in front of the consumers looking for the best proposals.”

You know you don't have to wait for a carrier subsidy, negri electronics is sure to be selling them unlocked

True that,, but I would like, LTE speeds :-)

It might have band 4, which is what t-mobile and some parts of at&t use for their LTE

I doubt it. Windows Phone Central reported that it's going to be exclusive to three carriers; of which AT&T isn't one of, sadly.

Woot? All that humongous storage without any Apps? HoHo
6. cam-whore (Posts: 164; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
and you do know that the storage is not for just for apps right. It's more for the out-of-this-world quality photos that only a nokia can deliver, the rest is for the amazingness to store. Not just apps loser, Or maybe you do keep all those hundred of fart apps in your phone storage.... Ho

''out-of-this-world quality photos that only a nokia can deliver''
A * REAL * Photo enthusiast would never spend a fortune on some phone that takes marginally better photos compared to other flagships.
Get the logic?
You only have one shot of that precious moment, why not use a better dedicated camera anyways?

Oh my logic....i forgot my ps where??? Oops no need i have a camera phone. Ps is endanger of extinction just because of camera phone. Get it?

Oh my grammar

FlushBordom, your comments are as dumb as ever. A real photo enthusiast would never ever listen to somebody like yourself, who obviously knows f--k all about photography!
Do me a favor, and tell me what TTL stands for, okay? NO, it's not "talk to you later". I'd rather not talk to you at all ;o)

you´re that stupid or just pretending and playing wendy´s role? Do you always carry a digital camera on you? I don´t but i take many pictures and when I´m taking them I want to be sure they will be as best as possible. That´s why miniaturization is for.

No phone is going to be able to replace a dedicated Camera when it comes to pure quality of the shot. While the 808 had an amazing camera for a phone (still one of the best), it didn't beat dedicated Camera's in the DoX test.
28. cam-whore (Posts: 164; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
very true, no phone has replaced a dedicated camera...yet... just wondering why dpreview gave the pureview 808 a gold award when it hasn't even been achieved by other dedicated cams...
but still your comment is true, dedicated cams haven't been replaced yet, since the Lumia 1020 was just announced, not released. But it is...very very sooooon...
27. cam-whore (Posts: 164; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
and im sure you put a dslr in your pocket to be able to catch that precious moment anytime? haha. Or you probably put it in your pocket to compensate for the lack of whatever is beside it.... and marginally? haha. other flagships haven't even caught up with the n8 of yesteryears bro...not even close...

Big plus to nokia. I hope they could deliver as many smartphones as they can. Stop the slow production of your flagship products.

The same lame processor that flagship Android phones were using a year ago & WP has been using on most of their phones since the OS debuted hardly screams monster to me.
29. cam-whore (Posts: 164; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
processor is nothing if you don't know how to use it....android even blows up in your pants....

Guys as I know WP supports only snapdragon. So Nokia must use s800 for their upcoming 41 mp camera phone. S800 supports up to 55 mp. Correct me if I'm wrong.
24. icyrock1 (Posts: 306; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
The S800 doesn't come in duel core versions though... Maybe they're using a S400.
