You can pre-order the Nokia Lumia 1020 at Telecom New Zealand for 149

Telecom New Zealand looks to be the first mobile carrier on the island nation to be taking pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 1020. Despite earlier rumors that the Lumia 1020 would be priced at $1299 outright, it will in fact only run you $1149. You can also opt for different contract lengths to knock the upfront cost down to as low as $149.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is available from Telecom New Zealand in either black or yellow and comes with free shipping. New lines of service also require a $5 SIM fee. All phones will be delivered within 3-5 days of the September 26 release date.

You can follow the source link to get to the order page with complete details.

Just yesterday we reported that Windows Phone has jumped to 15% market share in New Zealand. Having the Lumia 1020 on hand should continue that trend.
