The reality is that this isn't a Lumia 920 that Nokia and AT&T can push more product on. This is a much more niche product that AT&T probably thinks it won't sell even close to a million devices, and therefore they won't even bother making it more attractive to customers. The other side is that this DOES fall in line with pricing from other 32GB models from Apple and Samsung, and does offer a premium experience, therefore deserving a premium price tag. However you feel, you'll no doubt see this phone being sold for cheaper through a 3rd party like Amazon Wireless within two months time.

It'll be hard to sell this phone exclusively on AT&T when its $300 on contract. You saw how many people didnt buy the Note and Note 2 because of the price.............then became more profitable once the price went down.

We're living in tough economic times and cellphones are becoming as much an investment as a car or house. You cant expect a $300 phone to be a seller in an economy like this. I like what Nokia is trying to do, but to price it at $300 is insane lol

I think this is the real year of the Windows smart phones because this year Windows smart Phones get quad core CPU's, !080p screens, 5 to 6 inch screen Windows monster phones. and gdr2 and gdr3 software and hardware updates.. If you are Windows Nokia smart phone owner like I am you get an additional Nokia Amber software update. Early next year Windows smart phones will get the Windows 8 phones blue updates. 6 months from now or less I predict Verizon will get their Version of the Nokia AT & T lumia 1020 probably called the 1028. another good thing is there will probably be 1080p Nokia models with the older lumia 920 camera on them that will be cheaper than the 920 or at lest the 920 will now have a drastic cut in price

I think that after 2 months AT & T will drop the price of this Nokia lumia 1020.. Folks as good as the Nokia lumia 1020 is Nokia will soon get a more powerful flagship smart phone. It will have a 5 inch or 6 inch 1080p screen and the Lumia 920's camera and all the software goodies in it to rock anyone's world and probably be cheaper to buy than the Nokia lumia 1020. for us Windows smart phone fans this is the better smart phone by far than one with a super camera. I hope Nokia calls it the Nokia N-10
