CEO Stephen Elop took the stage to announce the new uber-camera smartphone we have all been anticipating. We also learned when and where we can get out hands on the new flagship phone.
Elop said that with the Lumia 1020, "you'll see things with this device that you've never seen before." He went on to say, "the Nokia Lumia 1020 will change how you shoot, how you take pictures, and more. The Lumia 1020 continues Nokia color story" with yellow, black, and white. "We've made the back the new front - we're so proud of it."
