Nokia introduced the Lumia 1020 July 11, proving that while Samsung and Apple know how to sell smartphones, no one can touch Nokia when it comes to camera technology. The 1020 features a second-generation 41-megapixel sensor with six lenses, Nokia's image-stabilizing PureView technology and a new feature called dual capture, which simultaneously snaps a 38-megapixel image and a more shareable 5-megapixel one. The 1020's Xenon flash helps it to take crisp photos with flash, even in low light, and its video camera is complemented by Rich Recording technology, which can handle six times more sound pressure than the microphone on an average smartphone. Smartphone, ah yes! (It's easy to forget there's more than the camera.) Windows Phone 8 is on board, and the display is a 4.5-inch AMOLED WXGA 2.5-D that can be used even while wearing gloves. AT&T will begin selling the 1020 July 26 for $299.99 with a new contract. "It's the best Windows Phone ever with the best smartphone camera ever," said AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega. "I look forward to selling a bunch of these."
