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 personally do not mind plastic, if the construction is solid enough to not need a protective case. In fact I prefer it over scratchable(sic) metal.

Given nokia's track record thus far, the "improvements" of the 1020 platform for other carriers will be minor tweaks (mainly exterior). The 920/925/928 are basically the same platform. IMO I don't think it's a very good strategy, but then again it's not my company to run.

In spite of some flaws (no device is perfect anyways) I really like this model specially since I would love to get rid of the need to carry a point and shoot camera for certain occasions, however WP does not fit my needs. I'd wait and see what Sony is doing with their Honami, alas they too are screwing up their approach to the American market (where I operate my cell phone).
