Microsoft Store has unlocked Nokia Lumia 1020 in black; device works on AT&T and T-Mobile networks
For a device rumored to be within two months of reaching its End of Life designation, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is all of a sudden getting a lot of play. On Monday, we told you about a new Microsoft commercial that featured the handset with the 41MP rear-facing camera. Now, it turns out that the online Microsoft Store has started selling an unlocked version of the phone, in black, for the price of $549. Shipping is on the house.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 comes out of the box with Windows Phone 8 pre-installed, and will work with a SIM card from AT&T or T-Mobile. Sprint and Verizon users will have to bow out. Of course, like all Lumia smartphones powered by Windows Phone 8, once Windows Phone 8.1 is ready for the unit, the Lumia 1020 will be updated.

Thanks to the 41MP PureView camera on back, this is the Windows Phone that has been on the wish list for those who love shooting snapshots and video with their handset. With OIS keeping images steady, and Nokia Rich Recording picking up sounds free of distortion, the Nokia Lumia 1020 could be making a final lap around the field before it is replaced on Microsoft's lineup by a new photo-centric device.
