The wait is finally over. Nokia’s flagship Lumia 1020 smartphone is now available through AT&T’s web site. The handset was unveiled earlier this month and is currently an AT&T exclusive, though you can also order pre-order it through the online Microsoft Store where the phone comes with a free Camera Grip.
If you buy the Lumia 1020 through AT&T you’ll have a few choices to make. First, pick whether you want your device in black, white or bright yellow. Then you’ll have to choose between four different payment options. Most people will likely go with the classic 2-year contract that drops the price down to $299, but you can also pay $549 for a less-restrictive 1-year contract or just pay the full $659 for a month-to-month contract. Finally, AT&T is offering the Lumia 1020 on its new Next plan, which lets you upgrade to a new handset after just one year, at a rate of $33 per month for 20 months.
The Lumia 1020’s main appeal is its massive 41-megapixel camera and the Pro Camera software that comes on the phone, but the handset also comes equipped with a 4.5-inch 1280 x 768-pixel WXGA display, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, a 2.000mAh battery, NFC and runs Windows Phone 8.
