Lumia 1020 has hardwarewise a quad-core CPU and bluetooth 4.0
Microsoft promised to catch up softwarewise releasing an update later this year to enable all the sleeping hardware.
Wi-Fi hotspot and radio FM with RDS are also present
No memory card is needed as you can connect any USB stick or almost any external HDD to copy your data to it or from it
"Fixed Battery" means durability period of this particular phone too is fixed.
Is it worth spending huge money for it ?
Just another stupid Lumia with no SD Card Slot and less Performance (1,5 Ghz Dual Core like a Samsung Galaxy S2) and medium GPU (Adreno 225 not so better than a Mali 400MP nor a nVidia Tegra 3 ! )
Nokia only want to make Windows phone.why should not make its new OS.which is give tough compitition aginst android and iOS.
AnonD-108057, 20 Jul 2013No wifi tethering??!!! i NEED to use it everyday!!Yes there is Wifi tethering. Don't worry. Even Lumia 520 has it.
common nokia y r u not making perfect mobiles, always keeping some faults like no card slot, less ppi density, old BT version V3 , ..... so on........... !!!
Thank you Nokia this is true innovation for this year in mobile phone technology. I believe this has the potential to be a game changer for Nokia. I hope other vendors would come out with new technology rather then copying each other.
give card solute up to 64gb like samsung s4... increase gpu made like s4....battery is bad so,increase the power
www, 19 Jul 2013thanx a lot dude.
as there's no lens cover at nokia 1020. i m worried abt scratches over time... moreYou're welcome. The shutter in 808 in covered with a glass, I wipe this glass with my shirt every time I start a new photo session, to remove particles of dust and after 7 months of wiping it a few times every day, there is no scratch on it, it's probably a special scratch-proff glass.
I also don't use a phone case or screen protection, I dropped the phone a few times on the ground but there is no scratch on the screen, no scratch on the body, looks like new.
Hope there is also waterproof smart watch camera phone from Nokia like what LG did last 2010. Sony made a bluetooth watch where you need your real smart phone within your range but its not as good as what LG did where you can insert a different sim card to ensure to receive all important calls and messages as well as instantly sending messages and making calls. Its a very useful device for active people who spend their day most on sports like swimming running dancing and other physical activities which I do not understand why only less cellphone manufacturers follow LG with this concept.

Anonymous, 19 Jul 2013Camera Lens of Nokia 1020 is made out of scratchless Gorilla Glass, so don't worry regarding s... morei really doubt the lens would be made from gorilla glass.
A substandard (in photography term) glass will produce colour dispersion - slight / bad, and inconsistent refraction at different part of the lens, which in turn degrades the image captured. I have no idea, but doubts, if gorilla glass will qualify to be used on a Zeiss lens.
This engineering perfection is why DSLR lens are so expensive, and produces result that only DSLRs are capable. And Lumia 1020 is so close to it.

www, 19 Jul 2013bro,let me know wheather i may replace my sony cybershot point and shoot digicam( sensor 1/2.3... moreYes, the sensor in 808 and 1020 is much bigger than sensors of point and shoot cameras. Pictures look amazing on a computer monitor and when printed. Even in 38 mp the picture looks good, but when you resize it to 12 or 8 mp (like a point and shoot camera), then there is no noise, it looks crystal clear. Here are some 34 mp samples from Lumia 1020, you can see this girl's eyes and lips perfectly:
I have a sony camera with 20x optical zoom but i prefer my 808, it takes better pictures and videos than my sony camera. 808 and Lumia 1020 also have 6x lossless zoom when recording 720p and 4x lossless zoom then taking 5 mp photos.
