Nokia Lumia 1020 (EOS)

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is Nokia’s follow up to their 2012 PureView 808 Symbian device, which featured a new 41MP camera sensor. The Lumia 1020 takes that same technology and merges it with the Lumia 920’s optical image stabilization (OIS) and Windows Phone 8 to bring mobile photography to a new level. The combination of technologies should ensure high resolution, sharp and blur free photos.

The device features a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen, 32GB of internal memory (no expansion), 2GB of RAM and a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU. The phone is nearly identical to the Lumia 920 except it omits built-in Wireless charging (Qi) in order to make the device thinner.

In addition to the device itself, an optional wireless charging backplate and a separate camera grip are available to enhance the device.

AT&T is expected to launch the device in the US at the end of July, 2013 for $299 on contract, with a European launch coming shortly thereafter. It will launch with the GDR2 OS and Amber updates.

More coverage

The Nokia Lumia 1020 may be ending sales in a few months, but that doesn't stop Microsoft from featuring the imaging powerhouse in their latest video. The main message in the video is that you can take great photos, access them from your favorite devices, and share them with the people who matter most. In addition to the 41-megapixel cameraphone, Microsoft also features OneDrive and Instagram.

Yesterday, @evleaks noted that the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its 41 MP camera is reaching 'end of life' status on September 14, effectively ending the renown camera-phone's run. However, we inquired with some of our sources and learned October 15 as the date Microsoft and their Stores are using for sending back and ending sales of the Lumia 1020. One-month difference though does not change the fact that the Lumia 1020 is indeed reaching its finish.

Fabien Cousteau and his team of aquanauts are spending 31 days underwater all in the name of science. The Mission 31 project (www.mission-31.com) is a combination of modern scientific exploration, tribute to Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and modern media to get the word out. And while all of that is in and of itself worthy of your attention, it's the fact that the team is using the Lumia 1020 that has our interest piqued.

In partnership with Nokia and Watershot Inc. (www.watershot.com), Cousteau's team can take the Lumia 1020 on their dives through a customized phone housing. That metal case can withstand 100 meters / 328 feet under the sea, which is extraordinarily deep. Watershot is selling a limited quantity of the specialty case, which cost $300 each. While not cheap by consumer standards, this is a specialty case for pros.

I have one, and this is an unboxing and quick tour of this magnificent piece of equipment.

The Nokia Lumia 630 is starting to hit markets worldwide, and one thing that's worth noting is its processor. We'll be doing a full review of the 630 shortly, but let's just say the bump in hardware does go a long way.

For our assessments we used the cross-platform Basemark OS II app ( Store link), which can evaluate the performance of system (CPU), memory, graphics, web browsing and even camera speed tests. We'll post the results below, with our discussion after.

Over the weekend we reported on Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31 (mission-31.com), where the famed underwater explorer will spend 31 days under the sea (cue the music). While super science stuff is super cool, we were more interested in the custom underwater housing for Cousteau’s Nokia Lumia 1020. The housing will allow Cousteau to take photos 100 meters / 330 feet below the ocean and to Tweet them later, marking a first for Nokia and Windows Phone.

Although we were quite jealous of the housing, Nokia in conjunction with the company Watershot Inc. have a limited supply of those casings for your Lumia 1020. Priced at $299, this is probably the most expensive case you’ll ever buy. On the other hand, if you’re a SCUBA diver, the case and opportunity it presents is hard to resist.

Last month we learned about Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31 (mission-31.com). As you probably can surmise from his last name, Fabien is the grandson of legendary oceanographic explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Fabien will attempt to spend 31 days underwater to live and work. Nokia is helping to sponsor the event, which is why you’ll find devices like the Lumia 1020 living with him underwater to help document to achievement. CNN has an interview with him where we get a glimpse at a crazy underwater housing for the Lumia 1020. Check it after the break.
