Nokia Lumia 1020 shows up in AT&T's inventory

There's little debate that AT&T customers are in line to get the new Nokia Lumia 1020 and we've received another sign to confirm just that.  The Lumia 1020 is now being listed in AT&T product inventory and has been assigned a SKU number.  Our anonymous tipster also noted that the Lumia 1020 has been seen in the hands of AT&T employees for testing.

The inventory listing also confirms the black, yellow and white color options that we saw with the Microsoft inventory sheet  the other day.

We are still expecting the Lumia 1020 to be available at the end of the month with an out of contract price of $602. Contractual discounts haven't been announce but will surely reduce the pricing significantly ($199 maybe?).

Remember Thursday Nokia is set to officially announce the Lumia 1020 at the Zoom Reinvented event and hopefully pricing and availability will come into sharp focus. And if you're in New York City on Thursday, remember the Zoom Party that Nokia is going to throw that evening.  We'll be at both events and will bring you all the news and coverage possible.

Thanks, anonymous, for the tip and screen grab!

  • No cyan? :sad face:
  • I know.... serious sad face :o(
  • I'm sorry, but I refuse to buy this device unless I can get L920 red.. Yes, its that important to me, and it just doesn't make sense that Nokias last 3 devices have been COLORLESS❗
  • I think it's because colors aren't selling as well as Black/White and sticking to three colors will be easier for Nokia.
  • Wasn't cyan best selling color of 920 on ATT? And yellow was impossible to find because everyone kept selling out. Shame really.
  • But, red is most definitely a top selling color.. I've seen more red, and cyan L920's than yellow.. That can't be the case.
  • Yellow Lumia920 are hard to come by , Lumia920 in red are everywhere and since the front of this phone is identical to the Lumia920 , I think they choose the Flashy yellow instead (Yellow stands out miles away :) )
  • I want this to be in Cyan, but I suspect that Nokia is realizing what sells versus what does not. Making the different colors inevitably hurts supply for colors that sell better due to a split in the manufacturing line somewhere (likely at the beginning).  Hopefully they can strike a nicer balance by simply limiting the number of painted shells of the less selling colors, but that still clearly means the other ones are not being made.
  • Red?.. That's one of the most popular colors❕
  • I remember black and white always being available while red and yellow being sold out.
  • I have a red L920 but using the yellow Nokia OEM case. I'm actually enjoying the yellow better than the red. Anyway as long as they got different color case, I'm happy. Of course we all gonna use case anyway.
  • I'm thinking what might be running thru editors minds at the verge about the possible score to give. Another 8.1?. Downsiders would be lack of choice in colors, bulge because of sensor and no built in wireless charging.
  • Stop reading V reviews. Everyone knows The V hates everything about WP.
  • ^THIS! They don't even hide it anymore. They criticized the Lumia 925 because it didn't have different color variety. I know Nokia usually uses color but to do a critique on color is ridiculous and very biased.
  • actually if you follow Tom Warren (the guy who usually does the WP reviews) on Twitter or read his articles, you'll know that he is basically the ONLY one from the V that likes WP and MS...
  • Absolutely agree!  I really like Tom Warren.  Maybe he should write for WP Central?
  • I'm not sure if it'd a worthwhile jump for Tom. If he jumps ship there will be no one to write about Microsoft at the verge. Also, he isn't limited to write about Windows Phones either, he covers a broader world of Microsoft.
  • That is sad but true. Another thing there is that WP phone reviews never stays a day longer in their highlight tiles at top whereas Apple or Samsung devices get to stay a week there.
  • Well they'll also complain it's not an iPwn or a Fallaxy and that it "only" has 100k apps. That should be good for a 6.1 on their skewed scale...
  • 160k apps... but yeah, wouldn't surprise me if they misquoted 100k. Granted, The Verge did own up to iOS7 being a blantant copy of WP.
  • The verge sucks
  •  
    Yeah, don't worry about the V too much.  I usually just add 2 points to whatever they give to WP phones and I'd be right on the money.  Watch this, suddenly the camera will not play such a huge role on the review scale.  I'm still laughing at their review about the 925 for lacking color variety or 920 for looking too much like its predecesor.  Really? Funny that doesn't seem the hurt Iphone reviews.  Also funny is that ever since adroid phones left the Iphone on the dust specs wise, specs stopped being such important factors on reviews.  Nevertheless, I thank everyday that Apple didn't come up with NFC, Wireless charging or a 41mp camera first cause we would have never heard the end of that Magical vision.  Still, I respect Apple for pushing us this far as that encouraged competition that brought about the 920, S4 and the rest, so I hope they bring their A game with their next phone.  Now let's just hope Nokia do not dissapoint on Thursday and they present the new phone with better energy and momentum that previous presentations.  I'm still hopping that they'll be offering more than 32gb for the so called 1020. Cheers,
  • and hopefully pricing and availability will come into sharp focus - I see what you did there :)
  • Hope that its a dual release, one Verizon and one AT&T it would be nice for a change!
  • Man I can't wait to check this phone out!
  • (Envy face)
  • Lumia 920 was $450 out of contract so this is definately the most expensive WIndows Phone ever
  • Can you believe that the iPhone 4, yes the model that came out in 2010, still goes for $450 off-contract? It's beyond absurd.
  • Dude I just sold my brother's shattered iPhone 4 on eBay for 250$. It was working but the entire phone screen was cracked....ridiculous!
  • If it comes out for $100 like the others then that would catch peoples attention and make Nokia look really good
  • There's a report on another site that says it will run you $99.00 with a two year contract on AT&T.
  • 600$ off contract but locked to AT&T right?
    I don't see the Eos selling in Europe, without a carrier attached, as is practice, for less than 700€ (that's around 800$) if the specs you mentioned (41mp and 2GbRam) are accurate.
  • I always if you payed full price they unlock it for you if you tell them.
  • I bought a 920 late last year for $450 and have been using it on Straight Talk ever since. In May, when the exclusivity deal expired, I was then able to get it unlocked (I got a code but haven't put it in yet... I don't have a non AT&T SIM card...)
  • 900. It's 1.3$ to 1€ right now :|
  • 1025 aluminum version to t-mobile
  • 1028 for Verizon?
  • It seems to be a 920 with a fancier camaera and more RAM :/. I wanted a 5"+ screen. I love using the ATIV S because WP deserves a large screen but no ATT LTE kills it for me.  Anything smaller than 4.8" is just too tiny. 
  • You need Android.
  • I hate AT&T
  • You should thank ATT. Without them, who knows if Nokia is able to penetrate the US. The other carriers are just waiting for a carrier's lead. ATT taking that chance. Now Verizon got 8x, L928, etc, and tmo got L925.
  • Some People seem to forget that point.
  • I think ATT is really good. I was on Sprint for well over 10 year and I will likely never look back. Their service has been great the few times I had to deal with them. Not sure what all the hate is about. Poor coverage, price? Personally, its been great for me.
  • I like AT&T.
  • ATT had terrible coverage around here. Now almost all people I know have Verizon.
  • no red. im trying to justify letting go of my beloved 920 for this but lack of red, amd it looking like a clone of the 920 with a backpack and still 4.5 inches and with the rumor of a 925esque successor to this with larger sçrwen n the horizn... hard for me to say.
    but i'l be tere in ny thursday to see it for myself
  • Maybe they'll have a red charging shell for it?  You could have a two-tone phone.  867-530-ni-ee-iinnee.
  • Lol thanks for the laugh. And you may be right!
  • There's no reason to switch from the L920 to this unless you're a photography enthusiast or one of those photographer-wanna-bes who can't take good photos with the 920 (or any other) and blame the camera for it...lol
  • Fail. The reason enough for me is the zoom. I'm not photography nut, but most of the times I take a picture I wish there was a zoom. No more wishing. Instead, I will join the crowd and wish away the Other storage bug...
  • Get the zoom lens attachment for the 920 and carry it separately. Only attach it when you need it.
  • Too much trouble and too slow. Most of my pictures are of my kids. The moments come and go quickly. The camera has to be fast and equipped to handle as many situations as possible. Plus, I'm certain that the time I wished I had the zoom attachment the most would be the time I forgot it in the car...
  • Your comments would make a great Nokia ad...
  • plenty of reasons...now that OIS is confirmed.
  • Or for people who just need to have the latest thing out (myself)
  • Exactly❕.. I want this phone, but I can't give up my red L920.. Its just that beautiful, fun.. I won't consider this phone until I hear that it's going to be offered in RED❕
  • I want it in RED like my Lumia 920
  • M.T.❕
  • lack of more colors (if true) is bad. One of the reasons why so many people like Lumia was color choice. Would've been nice if they offered some new colors if they getting rid of old ones. Very light blue, green, purple would've been really nice.
  • I just want the fucking Bluetooth on my 920 to work correctly.
    Also, the Vs only real complaints were too heavy and ecosystem. which are true with the latter changing everyday.
    I would rather have an all aluminum 909 that wasthinner than the 925 with the same camera.....oh and functional fucking BT.
  • Buy this and then the successor! If people wait til the next phone their might not be one due to lack of sales.
  • And while you're at it, starve to death because you feel obliged to keep corporations in business! (btw, it's "there")
  • You don't already starve yourself for corporations? Smh...
  • I admit it, I might be wrong about this phone. ;)
  • I think $199 is fair.
  • I agree too, but if they make it 99, they'll take considerable market share from Apple if they succeed in marketing the hell out of the 41mp beast before the next IPhone comes out.
  • Why do people hate windows phone?
  • Because the media tells them to. Or rather, it doesn't tell them its the best.
  • Or because people play with it and just don't feel it...it happens but the media doesn't hate windows phone or they wouldn't cover it ever.
  • I had iPhones as well Android and I was able to switch easily, and never looked back. But it just seems like the industry always have something negative about WP.
  • Not Wp, Microsoft as a whole. Anything they release nowadays is destined for scrutiny and criticism no matter how good it may be.
  • We call those haters,, well,, haters...
  • Lol +1
  • 3 of my 5 lines are up for upgrade.  If it hits $99, I'll be upgrading 2 lines, at $199, I'm going to only do one.  I'm really hoping for $99 so I can get accessories too.
  • Still holding out for a high end Nokia with a 4.7 or 4.8 inch screen.
  • That's a bigger selling point for me than a camera. Felt like a downgrade going from 4.7 titan to 4.5 920 screen-wise
  • Ditto
  • Will wait till later this year for bigger & better screen. 920 is good enough for now, but its a great upgrade from anything else.
  • Almost there Nokia.
  • If this goes for $600 off-contract and $199 with contract, it will be the biggest subsidy Nokia has ever gotten for one of its devices. It's still not up to the ridiculous $450 that Apple gets, but it means an extra $50 profit per unit for Nokia.
  • It's not going to be $602 off contract. It's going to be $699. Calling it now.
  • 1020 announcement and instagram announcement to follow ---- makes sense.
  • Stop torturing yourself.
  • Where did you here anything about Instagram?
  • Instance works just as well if not better and the developers worked hard on it so lets support that 
  • Instagram is useless for this phone.. its meant to hide the shitty IQ of numerous devices out there by adding all sorts of silly filters on top of the image, but with the EOS.. you would be practically ruining those pure pixels with some shitty 3rd party software.. If you want to do some editing, I am sure that Nokia will bundle their editing software, or better yet, use your PC. I would stay away from instacrap
  • I'd be glad to have instagram but if you don't want to ruin your photos, I highly recommend flickr instead. 1TB.
  • As a lot of commenters have suggested, the $602 looked like AT&T's cost, not the off-contract retail price for the consumer.
  • I hope its 99$ on contract so I may get the case for 70
  • ditto, I was probably going to pass up the case or maybe get it later...if this thing was gonna go for 199. but lo n behold, I will be holding my yellow 1020 in about 3 weeks!
  • As rad as this phone looks to be, it's probably smart to get it after GDR3 and/or the next Nokia update. There are sure to be bugs in that bad boy at launch.
  • Doubtful.
  • I'm excited to see what they have in store X3
  • i think its just easier for people to get plain colors, so thats what they sell more of.
  • NO❕❗... Don't support that❕... We want our colors back❕
  • Pretty sweet since I went from Tmo prepaid to ATT prepaid since they now allow LTE phones on prepaid.
  • Will there be an aluminum version? If so, when is it expected to be released.
  • Wait till Thursday... Maybe there will be a surprise or two... Remember all the hidden features we found out about when the l920 was unveiled❔
  • I know I bashed the hump on previous articles but the yellow makes it look so sexy. Just hate the overuse of bezel. I think it has to do with the HD screen. I may not be able to resist this. But we'll see. I may hand off my L920. Though I am trying to resist and wait till end of year. Its time for Phablet and 1080p screen.
  • Colors could cost a lot to produce and distribute in different markets. So maybe later nokia would add more options or just sell separate shells in variant color
  • This camera/phone will be mine.
  • I have been waiting for this phone since I heard about it 1 year ago on the grapevine at work. I will be upgrading from a 900.
  • I wish I had your patience
  • Will the 1020's sold in the Microsoft store off-contract still have the AT&T logo/branding?
