What may well be the last “Nokia” Lumia smartphone will go on sale in Australia mid-month with an RRP of $899.
The Lumia 1020 is, like the rest of its Lumia brethren, a Windows Phone 8 device, but what marks the Lumia 1020 out is its camera, with a frankly ludicrous sounding 41 megapixel sensor. It’ll go on sale through Telstra, Harvey Norman, Allphones and Dick Smith on September 17th, and through Optus on October 1st, although the telcos are only offering the black variant. Allphones and Dick Smith will offer Black and Yellow, while Harvey Norman will sell the Black, Yellow and White versions.
I’ve had my hands on a Lumia 1020 for the past couple of days — a little too quick for a full review — but the camera on this thing is undeniably outstanding. Expect a full review shortly.
