Unlocked Nokia Lumia 1020 priced in the UK: £549.98
Currently available only in the US where AT&T is selling it for $299.99 on contract (or $659.99 without contract), the Nokia Lumia 1020 is about to make its debut in other markets around the world.
In the UK, the new Windows Phone 8 handset should be available starting next month (September).
British retailer Unlocked-mobiles is the only one that’s listing a price for the 1020: £549.98 (meaning about €637, or $844). That’s a lot of money, of course, but Nokia and Microsoft believe that the 41MP PureView camera alongside the other features of the Lumia 1020 are worth it. For now, US customers don’t seem to agree, but maybe things will be different in Europe (where way more users are willing to buy smartphones unlocked, and aren’t that scared of high prices).
Nokia’s other new Windows Phone 8 handset, the cheaper Lumia 625, might arrive in the UK sooner than the 1020 – on August 26. The 625 will probably cost less than £200 (SIM-free).
