Nokia Lumia 1020 now available in Taiwan and back on track for Telstra in Australia

Lumia 1020

The world cried together when Nokia announced the Lumia 1020 as an exclusive on AT&T the world. Why limit the smartphone with the best camera to one carrier in one country? Thankfully that exclusivity was only timed and slowly the device began appearing around the globe. The device was recently delayed on Telstra in Australia, but is now back on track. It’s also now available to the people of Taiwan. Details below.

It was about two weeks ago that Telstra canceled all pre-orders for the Lumia 1020. The cause of the problem was a software issue on their Lumia 1020s. They sent everyone a free Lumia 520 as compensation for cancelling the pre-orders and the launch was put on hold indefinitely.

Thankfully that software issue seems to be resolved as the Lumia 1020 will be available online and in Telstra stores on October 15. There won’t be a new round of pre-orders, instead it will be first-come, first-served with black as the only color option. It’s a start.

Over in Taiwan, the Lumia 1020 recently sold out of pre-orders in only four days. The device is going for 24,900 TWD (about $845 USD). That pre-order included the camera grip with extended battery and a leather case for your smartphone. It’s available now, so check out your favorite retailers in Taiwan for availability.

Um what he said.

Wow, so they get to keep the 520's as backup units/sell them to get a few $'s or do they have to give them back? Either way good for them.

schlubadub says:

They keep them as compensation

"BREAKING NEWS: The Lumia 1020 is now available in Vanuatu!!!!"

I don't care. Any news today?

Sam Sabri says:

Then don't read it. How hard is that? 

Milk21 says:

I'm from Australia and care about the article, as do other people from this region who read WPC. It says the country names in the title, if you're not interested don't read it.

stui83 says:

Yeah more clarity on the issue here than in the Telstra shop

ahmadcrofton says:

Wtf... Is Verizon USA going to get this phone... Looks like the bush in Africa is going to get this phone first... Smh android loving $&%#&

MadSci2 says:

Well you might ask Verizon about it. Supposedly they're the "Can you hear me now?" network :)

lubbalots says:

The phablets coming, with quad core, 1080p screen, GDR3, and 20mpx camera. Don't fret about the bush.
