Nokia Lumia 1020 drops to $149.99 on Amazon

Amazon has reduced the price of the Nokia Lumia 1020 to just $149.99 with a 2 year contract, which was previously selling for $199.99.

The Lumia 1020 is the current flagship smartphone from Nokia, with a 41 megapixel "PureView" camera running the latest Windows Phone 8 GDR2. The phone was launched on AT&T on July 26th at a price of $299.99. Since launch, it has received frequent price cuts and offers. AT&T itself dropped the price recently and is selling the phone at $199.99. The phone can also be bought online without contract at a price of $609.99.

The 1020 comes preloaded with the Nokia "Amber" update with various camera and OS enhancements built on top of WP8 GDR2. It has been getting good reviews and the camera technology is unmatched among all the phones available, which makes the current price drop a good deal for anyone looking to buy this Windows Phone 8 device.

It is. Here where people don't give frack about iPhones and believe more megapixels = better image, it sold out like hot cakes on preorder. It's seriously rivaling Galaxy S4 even though it's priced $100 more because of stock shortage. It's definitely the device to be seen with if you have dough.

I understand its selling well where your from, but lets hold off on the "it's selling well" comments until we have real numbers.

149 is a fake price, you will PAY the 600 over the 2 years, or if you CANCEL the contract, this is the idea of the contract!

Drop the price to 300$ off contract and then the real demand will start, I have to buy 4 phones for the family (not only for me), and there are many people like me who have to buy more than one phone, this is why Nexus 4 was the choice, a superior hardware and a superior OS for fraction of the price, wow

The Nokia 1020 is not the only WP you know.

Your comment comes off as trying to say its the only WP to pick and therefore those looking for a better deal are out of luck. That's ridiculous. There are some excellent cheaper phones out there. The 1020 is a brand new phone with some leading market features, so of course its going to be outrageously expensive for a while. See about any new iPhone release for more examples. But if you truly are interested in the phone, it will drop over time.

Of course if you already hate WP and such, then you weren't going to buy such a phone regardless.

I never understood the big deal about these price reductions. You're getting $50 off of what it still a $2000+ contract over 24 months.

Really? Why don't these people buy it outright then?

I pay $80 a month whether I own the phone or not, so I take advantage of these deals whenever I'm due for an upgrade.

Because even at over $600 off-contract with PAYG, it's still an offensively overpriced rip-off!

Because it doesn't make sense to do so with companies such as AT&T or Verizon - their business models are based around subsidized device costs rolled into to the monthly plan. If you go with someone like AIO (or T-Mobile even) then it makes a lot more sense to BYOD. With T-Mobile if you want to do payments, they finance your phone separately from your monthly plan but if you simply buy your phone out right you only pay for the monthly plan. With AT&T if you don't get a phone when you have an offer, you are practically just throwing money away...

Contract or not, what's the difference? It's annoying if you want to change your phone in less than 2 years, but you'd still be spending 2k in a plan, so?... In the end it is just a phone 50 bucks cheaper. Enjoy.

After using a 620 now on AIO, I can't see ever going back to these expensive phones and contracts. About $900 more on the service cost over two years for the privilege of getting a $400 rebate on a phone? The 620 seems to do everything I need.

In the US, I pay the same monthly service cost whether I go out and buy the phone outright or get subsidized. Doesn't make much sense, but since that's the way it is, this is a pretty good deal.

They never drop in price. The providers just move more of the cost into the monthly plan.

If it's a new device, this is definitely true.
