Aaron reviews the Nokia Lumia 1020, the newest member of Nokia's family and a fusion between Windows Phone 8 and Nokia's PureView Symbian line. Available now at AT&T for $299.99, the Lumia 1020 offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, 4.5-inch AMOLED PureMotion HD+ display, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 2,000 mAh battery, 4G LTE, and Windows Phone 8. It's a nice device and the 41-megapixel camera is amazing, to say the least.
Nokia has done a fantastic job of distinguishing themselves from the pack of Windows Phone devices with the HERE suite of apps and the Nokia Pro Cam app for the camera. But the overarching concern is that $299 price point. With customer price expectations around the $199 mark, will Nokia/Microsoft/AT&T be able to effectively educate customers as to the benefits of the Lumia 1020? Part 1 of 2.
