Nokia Lumia 1020

Nokia’s Lumia 1020 camera-phone, has been selling like crazy ever since it was released to the open market. The 41 megapixel snapper of the device has been the talk of the town. The AT&T version of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is priced at $299 on a 2-year contract, but the camera phone is at a unbeatable discount from Amazon. The Lumia 1020 is priced at $249.99 (again with a 2-year commitment with AT&T).

The Nokia 808 PureView finally has a worthy successor – the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the culmination of Nokia’s continuous efforts to redefine smartphone photography. The company was the first to launch a massive 41MP image sensor, do optical stabilization in a phone and use high-dynamic range mics and the Lumia 1020 has it all under one roof.

Those crusty Symbians gave way to the Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 920, which was the first phone with optical image stabilization. The OIS offers huge advantages for low-light photography, but the sensor was small and of relatively low 8.7MP resolution. There was no xenon flash either.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 makes them all proud – it has the big sensor (even if, at 1/1.5″, it’s slightly smaller than the one inside the 808 PureView) the OIS and a proper flash, all garnished with a modern-looking smartphone OS. Here’s the gist.
