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?

Not for all-day camera use

Again, Nokia has failed to produce a high-end phone with microSD slot and replaceable battery.

This is particularly difficult to understand in light of the the 41MP/1080p camera, which will drain the battery and fill up the internal storage.

Not to mention the lack of quad-core CPU and 1080p screen, which will certainly not go well with the spec crowd.

There's a battery add on to extend battery life. Snaps on to the back.

You mean the camera grip? That will make the phone larger and heavier.

Plus it is $79, a far cry from the $15 you pay for a Galaxy S4 battery. So not an option if you want to buy several of them for extended photo sessions.
