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?

its not for mobile-os fanbois


But is it wise to focus[1], at times where Nokia needs volume most[2], on a small potential target group[3] and ignore mobile[4]-fanbois? Skeptical at best[5].

[3] photo camera market grow is near flat recent years + lesser/cheaper/smaller MP-phones that 'are enough for most users' are available since a long time + compare with 808 sales-volume where 808 had the early and last advantages.
[4] Mobile first
[5] From [1]: "Analysts, however, are skeptical that a new camera for the flagship Lumia smartphone will be enough for the Finnish company to regain market share"
