The 41 MP Lumia 1020 from Nokia is finally hitting its stride with its global release. Nearly every day, we hear of a new launch on some corner of the planet. Today we have two markets, both of which are quite massive for the soon-to-be Microsoft company: India and Singapore.
Nokia India has officially listed the massive camera phone on its website with a price of Rs.49999 ($812 USD) and customers can now preorder the device. Expected delivery for the flagship phone is by the third week of October. Earlier, Flipkart listed the phone in that region for preorder and it sold-out on Snapdeals, signifying strong demand.
Through Nokia direct, customers will also pick up WH-530 stereo headphones for free, a INR 1000 app voucher, free 2GB data for 2 months (for Vodafone users only) and 1 year phone insurance plan from New India Assurance. While overall the phone is quite expensive, at least those who opt for it will get a nice little package.
Heading over to Singapore, the Lumia 1020 was announced as being available there on October 5th—and that’s less than 60 minutes from now, locally. The phone retailer Adix82 is listing the phone as available and customers can walk in and pick up the 1020 with a free camera grip. Price is $920 and it is launching on three networks, including Singtel, Starhub and M1. Customers should be able to find the new phone being available at most retailers within the next few hours.
