Nokia Lumia 1020

Back in January, AT&T reduced the price of the camera-centric Nokia Lumia 1020 to $49.99 tied to a two-year contract. If you were unlucky enough, and didn’t manage to get yourself the iconic camera phone, fret not, as Amazon has now listed the Nokia Lumia 1020 for a similar $49.99 price tag.

It doesn’t matter whether you create a new account at AT&T or add a new line to your existing account, the folks at Amazon will sell you the Nokia Lumia 1020 for $49.99, which is currently priced at $99.99 if you get it directly from AT&T. So, there you have it, a savings of $50 compared to its regular price. It’s not just the the money saved, AT&T is throwing in a $100 bill credit for new activations, which means you’re literally being paid to get the handset from Amazon.

As far as the specifications are concerned, you will get a smartphone with the best camera available in the market — Nokia even gave reasons to why it’s still better than carrying a DSLR. If you can’t recall what it brings to the table, here’s a summary of what you will get for shelling out $49.99 of your hard-earned cash:

  • 4.5-inch AMOLED display with 1280 x 768 pixels resolution, 332 ppi pixel density
  • Dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus 
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • 41MP camera with Carl Zeiss Optics and optical image stabilization 
  • 1.2MP front-facing camera
  • Windows Phone 8, upgradeable to Lumia Black
  • 130.4 x 71.4 x 10.4 mm, 158g
