As the Nokia Lumia 1020 begins its global launch in the coming weeks, one item we hope to report on are frequent sightings of the device in people’s hands. Even more, we want to see images captured with its massive 41 MP camera used in media and elsewhere, as that is what will eventually persuade the public that this phone is different.
One of the first high profile sightings of Nokia’s new camera flagship was this weekend when Liverpool FC visited Oslo, Norway. The game was shown on national television (TV2) with a potentially large audience tuning in for the big match. Caught on two separate occasions by the network was Linda Pizzuti, the wife of John W. Henry (Wikipedia) who owns Liverpool Football Club. She evidently picked up a yellow AT&T Lumia 1020 recently and brought it over to save the memories.
Good color choice, Ms. Pizzuti. We approve.
However, going through her Twitter feed we have to wonder if she’s really taking photos with it or if she forgot to take off the lens sticker, because her photos aren’t exactly endorsements of the Lumia 1020. But hey, it’s a start.
In a related story, the Lumia 1020 was also spotted at a recent Yankees / White Sox game. Evidently a fan was snapping a photo of Mariano Rivera and the moment was caught on TV.
Yankees fan snapping what is sure to be an excellent photo
With its iconic Cyclops camera housing, the Nokia Lumia 1020 stands to physically represent a new age in mobile photography and it should be easy to spot in the wild. That’s good for Windows Phone as no one will confuse it with those other guys.
Have you seen the Nokia Lumia 1020 in the wild? Caught on TV? Let us know in comments.
Thanks, Jon Ivar N. and Steven B., for the tips and images!
