After a series of leaks, Nokia has revealed its latest in a long line of impressive camera phones. Called the Lumia 1020, it's the true successor to the awfully impressive (but Symbian-laden) 808 PureView. It has a 41-megapixel camera, optical image stabilization, an all-new Pro Camera app with manual focus controls, and more. On the phone side of things it's about the same internally as the Lumia 920 and 925 before it. This is the place to be for all of the information on the latest Windows Phone — we'll be posting updates as they come in.
Nokia Pro Camera, the application taking center stage on the photography-focused Lumia 1020, will be making its way to more of the company's smartphones. A post on Nokia's official blog notes that the app will come to PureView-branded Lumia phones — that's the 920, 925, and 928 — as part of this summer's "Amber" software update.

With the Lumia 1020 today, Nokia's revealed its latest in a line of camera phones that introduce rather impressive imaging performance in a pocketable frame. We've all heard the headline spec — a massive 41-megapixel sensor squeezed into the body of a Lumia smartphone — but what should we expect with this camera?
At a small, almost awkwardly intimate event at Pier 92 in New York CIty, Nokia just unveiled its latest PureView creation: the Lumia 1020. After a 45-minute buildup to the event that was nothing more than a slideshow of beautiful pictures "taken with a Nokia Lumia smartphone," we had to see the device for ourselves.
At first blush, it's impressive. The 1020 is handsome and sleek, rounded and not quite so boxy and large as some of the other Lumia phones we've seen. It's not small, though: the...
After weeks of leaks, Nokia is making its Lumia 1020 handset official on Thursday. The Finnish smartphone maker has just unveiled its latest flagship Windows Phone on stage at an event in New York. The Lumia 1020 is a big upgrade over Nokia's previous Windows Phone efforts for one reason alone: a 41-megapixel camera. Nokia is taking its PureView 808 sensor from its Symbian days and adding a number of enhancements to bring it to Windows Phone.
