PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In its struggle to find willing customers, Nokia just announced yet another flagship phone - the Nokia Lumia 1020. It's essentially a Lumia 920/925, but with the Nokia 808's PureView camera bolted on. Also, it's exclusive to AT&T in the US, for $299 with a two year contract, which is a steep price. So, who gets the honour to be the first to claim that this, yes this Lumia will turn Nokia around?

I am a big nokia fanboy. That said, I havent owned a nokia phone since my first smartphone, the 3650 (i did have a 770 tablet...). I am currently looking at the Nokia 512 for my Mother (free music, downloadable maps for GPS, at $150? all win for someone coming from a feature phone)

This 1020 is exciting. Being on AT&T exclusively will keep me away unfortunately. Did Nokia not read the memo that apple might have won the phone wars had they not stuck to AT&T for so long and allowed android to flourish?

And there is an another uncomfortable subject that most manufacturers (sony, HTC, and nokia) dont like to speak about, battery life, I've been spoiled with really good battery life on the Razer Maxx (and my current device the Galaxy Note 2). Having to not have to plug your phone in for 2-3 days (or more) is so liberating that I dont see myself going back to halve day use. It sad to see that Nokia seems to be staying out of the uber battery battle and ceding it to Samsung and Motorola.
