You can now pick up the 41-megapixel AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 for $99.99 when signing a new 2-year contract.
Nokia introduced a game-changing camera smartphone when it launched the Lumia 1020. While other smartphone manufacturers were beefing up their smartphones with 5 and 8-megapixel cameras, Nokia decided to take the camera of the Lumia 1020 to the next level with a whopping 41-megapixel sensor. By doing so, the company ushered in what is now a new category of camera-centric smartphones.
Samsung followed up with its Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom with a 16-megapixel shooter, while Sony added a 20.7-megapixel camera to the Xperia Z1. While impressive, those cameras still pale in comparison to the 41-megapixel PureView camera Nokia was able to pack into the Lumia 1020. The handset also comes with the latest version of Windows Phone 8 and includes many exclusive Nokia software enhancements that continue to make Lumia smartphones the best selling Windows Phone handsets on the market.
