Nokia Lumia 1020 is coming to Australia


Nokia have just announced that the highly anticipated release of the flagship Windows Phone, the Nokia 1020 will be coming this month. That stunning 41MP camera will soon be busy taking photos of the Harbour Bridge, Big Pineapple and Parliament House. What’s the big deal about the 1020 arriving in Australia? It has the best camera in any phone, full stop, end of story.

The 41 Megapixel camera combined with the Nokia Pro Camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020, lets you shoot in super high resolution, which means you can zoom in after you’ve taken the shot. Rotating, reframing and cropping then lets you share the perfect image, and avoid the normal pixilation experienced by the phone in your pocket.


With stunning shots like this possible with the Lumia 1020 its sure to be used to capture shots of our amazing country, particularly our famous skylines at night. I can’t wait to see it pointed to the skies as fireballs explode light into the Melbourne darkness outside Crown Casino. If you happened to miss the specs of the Lumia 1020, here’s the highlights:
