Nokia Lumia 1020 launching in Canada on October 3rd with Rogers and TELUS

Nokia will be launching the Lumia 1020 in Canada soon, and the smartphone will be carried by Rogers and TELUS. MobileSyrup have got their hands on internal TELUS documentation, which reveals October 3rd as the date to pencil in the calendar. As well as the release date, a 2-year contract price of $199.99 and outright price of $725 were also included. Oh, and if you're one about colours, both yellow and black variants will be available.

That's TELUS out the way, but Rogers has gone for a similar pricing model (outright is $100 cheaper though, be sure to shop around). Should you require reminding, the Lumia 1020 is Nokia's flagship Windows Phone, which sports a 4.5-inch display, 41MP PureView camera with Xenon Flash, LTE connectivity, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage and is powered by a 2,000mAh battery.
