Today, Microsoft announced that Nokia's Windows Phone-based 41-megapixel Lumia 1020 is now available for both online and in-store purchases. Microsoft says that the 4G LTE smartphone will cost customers $299 with a standard 2-year contract and is available in yellow, white, and black.
The Lumia 1020 features a 41-megapixel camera that sports a lens aperture of f/2.2 and a super wide focal length of 6.2mm. The device also features a true Xenon flash for amazing illumination of low-light scenes. A 1.5GHz dual-core QUALCOMM Snapdragon S4 handles the processing duties, while 2GB of RAM keeps things running smooth. 32GB of internal storage is also present which should allow for quite a few photos to be stored on the device. The screen is a 4.5-inch AMOLED PureMotion HD+ unit comprised of Gorilla glass.
