Price unconfirmed as yet. A couple of photos uploaded on flickr taken from Lumia 1020 by Microsoft Windows Phone Manager Joe Belfiore.

I suspect it'll be priced around £600, to stay clear of Lumia 925's territory.

Big problem: no apps, dying

Big problem: no apps, dying OS.

Looked into buying a Nokia recently but decided they're kind of in limbo at the mo. If they'd gone Android would have been interested, they make class phones. Decided to stick with my iPhone 3GS and go with the 5 when the 5S comes out.

RE: Big problem: no apps, dying

Agree to an extent, as we said in our Lumia 925 review, but they're getting there with apps. But still not the right choice if you want a full selection of apps.

RE: Big problem: no apps, dying

I'd disagree with dying OS - at the moment, it seems market share is growing (well, in the US at least). I think market share has to be shrinking in order to be considered dying?

Give it a year or two and then maybe....

RE: Nokia Lumia 1020 with 41-megapixel camera

I've been using Lumia 920 since September, and haven't missed out on any app for my purpose. I actually quite enjoy my phone, & the level of customisation it offers. Agree I wouldn't call it a dying OS at all. Microsoft have done a good job here (give credit where credit is due). It has its own quirks, like WhatsApp is buggy, but overall, it's very good.

RE: Nokia Lumia 1020 with 41-megapixel camera coming

Windows RT was always a temporary measure to plug a gap in the market while Microsoft wait for Intel x86 to shrink down enough to fit on a phone, so you can run windows proper. 

 

It has been an absolute disaster, and the Windows phones are average at best, more like a mid-range Android but they still trying to command a topend price - and people complain when their "windows" phone doesnt run the same software as their PC.

That's just a non-sensical comment.

That's because people complained when Lumia 920 was out......why on earth is the Pureview camera not 41MP like 808? It's all marketing ploy. Smile
