Nokia Lumia 1020 takes its place in AT&T's inventory

After the countless leaks regarding Nokia’s Lumia 1020 device, we now get one more. The screenshot above is supposedly showing us AT&T’s inventory with three SKUs of the Lumia 1020.

The image comes via WPCentral from an anonymous source that has access to AT&T’s device database. As you can see the Lumia 1020 comes in three colors, black, yellow and white confirming earlier rumors.

In case you somehow missed it, the Lumia 1020 is Nokia’s latest handset that’s expected to bring the full 41 Mpx Pureview experience to Windows Phone.

The device is expected to be shown off a Nokia’s Zoom event later this week with an official launch date set for the end of the month. Nokia has even set up a party to celebrate the launch and it's asking people to join, so if you're in NYC you might want to sign-up.

We’ve seen indications that the device will retail for around $600, and while it’s not exactly clear if this image is real, the Lumia 1020 is expected to be an exclusive to AT&T in the US. So here's hoping for discounted prices on contract hopefully around $199.

Thank god I live in a country where phones aren't exclusive to one carrier. While true that phones mostly reach here later than everywhere else it's still better than exclusives.

I've never understood this "exclusive" thing...i mean ok yes technical you got an exclusive 820...but when the bloke next to you is rocking a 822 clone of yours...its hardly exclusive =P

It is because business is conducted differently here in the United States. I do believe that North America is the only part of the world where providers can subsidize your phone. In other countries, it is pay as you go, but you have to purchase your own phone.

Also, AT&T is the largest GSM company in the U.S, and since GSM is the standard, and GSM phones are the first ones that get manufactured, it put AT&T in a position to get all the exclusives.

Granted GSM is preferred so the phone goes to that network first no problem. What ****es me off is that these exclusives last 6+ months before other carriers can have the phone. Others want the phone but don't want to switch carriers for it.

6 months exclusive is not that long. There are benefits for those who wait, and a good example of that is the the Nokia Lumia 92x. Granted, to me, it is not as good as a benefit if you are waiting for the Lumia 925 in the U.S because T-mobile's version only comes with 16 GB of space; while Europe gets the 32 GB variant. The way I see it, if you cannot add a SD card to a phone, it should come at least with a 32 GB minimum.

6 months in regards to technology improvements is a life time

Nokia could have taken the camera from the 925 and added to the 928 to make it stand out over the 920.

When the 1020(8) makes it to VZW a quad core (not that I care about quad core) and 1080 resolution device will make its way to AT&T.

Just can't see why Nokia cannot announce the device on AT&T and VZW at the same time. But I guess AT&T throws tons of cash at Nokia whereas VZW doesn't so they lose.

Just my 2 cents....

Good thing in the US, third-party phones from other countries (like yours) will work on any carrier it's compatible with...

That's ok. I understand. I used to be like that; were I cannot wait for new technology to come out.

The 928 didn't come out until a month ago and the 925 is still not out in the U.S. So the 920 was truly exclusive to AT&T for quite some time.

But it is stupid and I hate it. I want for the carrier to have nothing to do with the phone.

I'm not sure if I understood you right but over here we also have contract phones and if you want to buy out right you'll pay yourself into debt. For example a phone costs $500 on a 18 month contract with a plan and if you want to buy it without a contract you'll pay well over 700.

You understood correctly. However, that is why I said "I believe", but that doesn't necessary mean that it is totally accurate, but glad to know that there are other part of Europe that does this. T-mobile US is trying to break this trend.
