Nokia Lumia 1020 with camera grip

The Nokia Lumia 1020 was officially announced yesterday. The device will be an exclusive on AT&T here in the United States. Abroad we’re looking at Telefonica/O2 getting it in September (and they have a 64GB version to boot). It’s a sweet smartphone and there are about 41 million reasons you should get one. It’s also launching with a camera grip that adds more battery life and improves ergonomics when taking pics. Get it for free through the Microsoft Store.

Head on over to the Microsoft Store’s landing page for the Nokia Lumia 1020 and you’ll learn some fun facts. You’ll be able to pre-order the device on July 16th and if you do so with a 2 year contract you’ll get a free camera grip for your phone. It’s not a bad deal if you were planning on doing the same thing through the AT&T store.

The phone is available in all three launch colors – yellow, black, and white. Something else readers have pointed out to us is that the Microsoft Store lists a 64GB version is available in the tech specs. We suspect this is only a typo and will be fixed shortly. Although many of us (and you) would love to see a 64GB version of the Lumia 1020, it’s still a Telefonica exclusive as far as we know. Sorry to break hearts.

The Lumia 1020 will costs $299 on contract. Not sold on the Lumia 1020 yet? Check out our hands-on with it.

Thanks for the tip Erzhik!
