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?

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.

Honestly, how much continuous battery life do you need? I'm fairy certain you'll be well into the end of the day even without the extended pack, so why wouldn't you have a charger before then?

I see your point with the weight, but the battery likely contributes greatly to this. A compromise of the unibody design is the non removable battery.
