The eagerly anticipated Nokia Lumia 1020 was finally unveiled last week by the Finnish manufacturer at a press event in New York. The phone is the latest high-end offering in the company's Windows Phone powered Lumia series, which has seen some of Nokia's most successful handsets in recent years, like the Lumia 920 and Lumia 520.

following a period of losing much of its market share to rival manufacturers,
it comes as no surprise that the new Lumia 1020 has also generated a huge
amount of interest. Among the key features of the device are a market leading
41 megapixel PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 4.5 inch ClearBlack AMOLED
display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Windows Phone 8 operating
system. Find out more about the Nokia Lumia 1020 on our website, where we also compare the best Nokia Lumia 925 prices.
