Nokia, perhaps more-so than any other smartphone manufacturer in the game right now, needed to find a way to make something special. The new Nokia Lumia 1020, though it sports essentially the same internals and display as Nokia's Lumia 920, most definitely is different, and perhaps even a very attractive alternative, depending on your specific needs.

41 megapixels of resolution, floating image stabilization and a powerful camera app to back it up, will make the Lumia 1020 pretty "special" to a lot of people, some of whom might be considering a Windows Phone for the first time as a result.  We're quickly working up a detailed review on Nokia's new Lumia 1020 but wanted to give you our initial impressions of the device and its camera performance, here in this quick-take preview.

Thats one crazy camera on a mobile app. Though I still can't see myself getting a Windows Phone. I still think android has the best os.

Having used all three (current) major smartphone platforms, I actually think Windows Phone is arguably the best OS, but the ecosystem can't compare to Android or iOS just yet.

That is a crazy camera for a phone, but I don't see that attracting many converts. @Marco, I agree, Windows OS is excellent, but the limited market for apps is discouraging.

I think there are more than enough apps on Windows Phone. When I started with an HTC Mozart (right in the beginning of WP) the market was really a little bit low, but there were a lot of important apps.

With WP8 I actually don't miss anything, there are all the apps I need and the OS runs smoother with a 1,5GHz Dual Core (Samsung Ativ S), than Android does with a 1,9GHz Quadcore (Galaxy S4).

I do agree the windows os is by far the best, the apps will come. I read somewhere once Windows Phone hits 15% market share it will have mass acceptance and then boom from there.

I find it myself, that this Nokia flagship device really have better resolution that makes it photography even more sophisticated like any other high resolution camera. This mobile alone can be use for photography.
