Retailers in the UK like Phones 4U and Carphone Warehouse will also be keeping stock of the handset. Virgin Media has also confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 1020 will not be joining the range and Vodafone and EE have till date are numb on whether the phone will be launched on their carriers or not. O2 is going to release an exclusive 64 GB version of the phone whereas the other operators will launch the 32 GB version of the phone only. There is however no word on the pricing details of the phone and for this we have to wait for some time before an announcement is made by the company.

In another recent development from the company it has been found that Nokia is hands full with the Nokia Lumia 625 at the IFA 2013. The Company did not have a booth like its counterparts Samsung, Asus, Acer and Sony to display its devices. The Nokia Lumia 625 was displayed at the side events of the show and it was showcased by the new owner of the Company Microsoft. This phone is a very interesting gadget and it is a budget phone that has hit the big screen on a price that is affordable and very pocket friendly for many.

It was way back in the month of July that the company had unleashed the 41 MP camera phone the Nokia Lumia 1020. This is the last Lumia released before the company devices and services were taken over by Microsoft. There is still some doubts and uncertainty as to what will happen to the with the rumored tablet 1520 phablet and the Nokia Lumia 625 that has already gone up for sale in the market. This phone is one that is already running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and it has a S4 chipset with a 1.2 Ghz dual core Krait processor. This mobile phone has Adreno 305 graphics and 512 MB of RAM. The Windows 8 Phone is one that gives people a killer gaming experience with its large screen fit for playing and enjoying the game better here.

by GULLIVER - on Aug 22nd 2013 - No Comments

Prices for the Nokia Lumia 1020 on contract has been slashed on Amazon and now mobile enthusiasts can get the device at $249. This comes as a pleasant surprise to most consumers who thought that the price of the phone was a wee too high and this is what deterred them to buy the phone. These consumers were not really very impressed with the 41 MP camera and its associated features like the stabilization of a floating image and the Pro Camera app that is a powerful one.

Nokia-Lumia-1020

The high MP feature to the camera did not mean much to most customers and so the significant difference was not felt so much. The company has laid acute emphasis on this feature of the phone as it has amazing optics, good stabilization for images and a very high sensor for resolution. They all have made this Nokia Lumia phone stand out however not in a very big manner.

 The main issue with the Nokia Lumia 1020 has been the price and now the makers are addressing this issue. Price cuts have been released on Amazon and users can only get it for $249 with AT & T. Now this is really a great bargain as if you compare this with Samsung after launching the Galaxy S4 on contract available for $149.99 , it is a great bargain.

This is just the beginning and there are no figures or statistics available in the market of the smartphone users that use their phones for emailing, web browsing and taking some precious moments of their lives.

There are some users who often proceed with clicking images even if they do not have high quality cameras. After analysis it has been noticed that maybe the Nokia Lumia’s 1020 14MP camera may not be the killer feature that the Company has anticipated when it came to capturing the market share for Android and iOS platform devices at competitive prices.

The new Windows phone still has tough competition and time will only disclose of this price slash will make it accessible to more buyers in the market. Nokia perhaps misfired when it came to wooing the market with a device that boosted of a 41 MP camera and some real cool associated features too. Let us see if this proce cut lifts the fortunes of the Nokia Lumia 1020 and make it a tough device to reckon with in the market.
