Nokia has today unveiled and announced the Lumia 1020 for AT&T. The Windows Phone is the latest flagship handset from the Finnish manufacturer, following the Lumia 920, Lumia 928 and Lumia 925. What's important here is the jump to a new group, no longer are we wrapped up in the 9xx series. So what's the Lumia 1020 all about and is it exactly as leaked renders and information suggested?
Three UK has published the above video on its YouTube account, walking viewers through the new Lumia 1020. We're currently at the New York event where Nokia is unveiling this new flagship Windows Phone and will have more details and footage shortly.
Microsoft today announced plans for reorganisation. We've previously touched on rumours and speculation that CEO Steve Ballmer was looking to restructure the company into one that focuses on devices and services. Ballmer fired out a letter to Microsoft employees, detailing what was happening and what the outlook is for Microsoft once these changes have been applied.
Join us for the Windows Phone Central Live Blog of Nokia's announcement.
We're live in New York City with Nokia, front and center, ready to bring you the latest on their ever changing lineup, including the expected announcement of the Lumia 1020 with a 41MP camera phone.
Join us after the break for the live stream, our live blog and your comment room! You won't want to miss it! The event starts at 11 AM ET.
O2 has partnered with Virgin Media to provide free Wifi connectivity to its customers throughout the London Underground train system, affectionately known as the Tube. Virgin Media has hotspots in more than 120 Tube stations and has already partnered with O2 competitors Vodafone and EE, leaving Three as the only major UK carrier to not offer this service to their users.
Nokia has updated the Windows Phone 8 version of their photography app Cinemagraph. The version 3.5.4 update improves the HD animations at 720p resolutions.
In addition to a few bug fixes, the update also adds crossfading transitions and a color pop feature that includes an easy restoration tool to return your image's original colors.
We have seen a vast assortment of leaked images of the Nokia Lumia 1020 over the past month or so. The latest crop confirms the design we've grown accustomed to but also shows the camera grip in action.
The camera grip will be fitted with a tripod mount, two-stage camera button and gives the back of the Lumia 1020 a definite "point and shoot" camera look.
While the official announcement on the new AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 is within reach, the Windows Phone has now been confirmed through a commercial spot for AT&T.
We've spotted this video from AT&T highlight many of the Lumia 1020's photographic features. The twenty-six second spot doesn't reveal much but does make us wish the Nokia event would hurry up and get here.
We are just a few hours away from Nokia's Zoom Re-Invented event where all that is the Nokia Lumia 1020 is expected to be revealed. A few hours is plenty of time for a few leaked images to pop up and this time around it's the ProCam camera app in the spotlight courtesy of @Vizileaks.
The ProCam app will be the driving force behind the Lumia 1020's 41MP EOS camera and if these images hold true, the user interface will incorporate a dial system to fine tune the camera's settings. The interface looks nice and will put a lot of camera control at your finger tips without the need to bounce back and forth between the viewfinder and settings screens.
Even though it looks like we spilled all of the info about the Nokia Lumia 1020, aka the 41MP PureView Monster, truth be told we still have a lot of questions to answer. Confirming price, regional availability, functionality of that camera, when can you get your mitts on one and some HQ photos and videos of the new Nokia jewel.

While a few of you have lamented that the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 will reportedly come with only 32GB of internal storage (and nothing expandable), we now have evidence that a 64GB version of the device is planned for the market,
Unfortunately, it is exclusively destined for Telefónica (O2, Movistar and Vivo) in both their European and Latin American markets.
The device is slated to launch in September and will provide double the storage of the “standard” Nokia Lumia Eros...
Now that we supposedly have the full specifications for the Nokia Lumia 1020, the flagship photography device destined to be revealed tomorrow morning, we just need to fill in some details, like price and availability.
We’re going to reveal two prices here tonight, both of which are not 100% confirmed but look to be accurate. You might want to grab a chair before you read on…
Nokia has pulled the updates for HERE Drive and Transit due to some issues consumers have been experiencing when attempting to install the latest versions. We covered the releases recently with the new features and pricing for all Windows Phones. What's interesting is Nokia has stated that it will be offering its collection of HERE Windows Phone apps to all smartphones.
Windows Phone has somewhat lagged in features and apps that enterprise users need. Earlier today we learned that Microsoft announced an enterprise feature pack that would come to Windows Phone 8 early next year. Now, enterprise software giant Citrix has announced some pretty cool stuff for the IT/Enterprise readers – XenMobile and Citrix Receiver.
Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference 2013 (abbreviated as WPC, not to be confused with Windows Phone Central) is currently going on at the spacious George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. The yearly event focuses on Microsoft’s IT and Enterprise business, allowing companies designated as Microsoft Partners to come together for learning, networking, and much more.
A few weeks back, we reported that Microsoft would be making its Surface Pro and RT tablets available to WPC 2013 attendees at drastically discounted prices. Well, never let it be said that we don’t follow through on our news stories. Your friendly neighborhood Games Editor stopped by the first two days of the event and put the discount offer to the test. Find out if I succeeded and see lots of photographs from the show after the break!
We’re less than 24 hours from finally getting the official details on Nokia’s 41 megapixel monster – the Lumia 1020. That doesn’t mean leaks aren’t still flowing in. Au contraire, we might have the full specs of the upcoming device. What to know what network bands it supports and more? Read on.
T-Mobile has had a busy day today. They announced some cool upgrades to their network, showed off a new upgrade program, and made the Nokia Lumia 925 available for the first time here in the United States. We were live at the event in NYC and spent some time with the device our friends across the pond have been enjoying for a few weeks. Photos and video after the break.
Microsoft today announced an increase in the length of the company's support lifecycle for Windows Phone 8, from 18 months to 36 months. Beginning with Windows Phone 8, Microsoft notes in an official blog post that updates, including security updates will be available for 36 months. Each update will (as we already know) incremental, with each release building on the preceding one. While the company will have the update available, the mobile operator and / or mobile phone manufacturer may control the distribution of updates.
After a three week Xbox Windows Phone release drought, we certainly didn’t expect a new game this week. My bet had been on Halo: Spartan Assault being the one to break the drought, possibly next week. But it turns out that Microsoft and Gameloft had different, happier plans for us this week.
Yes, Order & Chaos Online, one of the 12 Gameloft games announced for Windows Phone 8 last year, is finally available! Finally, we have an Xbox-branded Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) to play on the go. So few of those exist even on Xbox 360!
Of course, the usual caveats with a big budget 3D game apply to Order & Chaos Online. It requires 1 GB of RAM and clocks in at 1012 MB file size, meaning you’ll need more than four gigabytes of space to actually download it.
T-Mobile is rocking on with its US press conference today. We've found out exactly how much we'll be having to pay for the Nokia Lumia 925, as well as when we can expect to see the new Windows Phone launch in the states. Alongside the smartphone announcement, John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile US, also unveiled new services and upgrades at the mobile operator that will help out customers.
While T-Mobile customers are surely excited about the news on the Lumia 925's price and release date, T-Mobile has made it a little easier to upgrade your Windows Phones with their JUMP! program.
The JUMP! program is also designed to provide customers with total protection for Windows Phone. The program offers the ability to upgrade to a new device more affordably and protects against malfunction, damage, loss or theft. The cost? $10 per month, per phone (plus taxes and fees).
We knew it was coming, T-Mobile has just announced the pricing and availability of the Nokia Lumia 925. The latest Windows Phone 8 device to hit T-Mobile in the United States will go on sale July 17. Want pricing? Read on.
Windows Phone 8 came out last fall. October 29th to be exact. It came with some killer hardware between the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X. It also had a slew of handy new features within the OS itself. Its major change, something most consumers will never know or appreciate, was the change to the Windows NT kernel. The same kernel powering Windows 8. It’s been over 8 months since then, what does Microsoft have in store for Windows Phone going forward?
