Have you ever stared at pictures from your “measely iPhone” and thought “it HAS to get better than this”? Well you’re right, it does.
Take a look at the Nokia Lumia 1020 phone with 41-megapixel camera.
The Lumia 1020 phone with 41-megapixel camera- a Window’s based smartphone, is scheduled to be released on July 26th, 2013 only in the US.
It’s no news that Nokia has been struggling against the competition but some believe that this new addition to the family will prompt a comeback for the Finnish company. We’re not so sure. Certainly the 1020 will be a great addition for photographers and photographer wanna-be’s out there but the $299.99 price point is a bit of a turn off. And yes, that price point includes the two year contract discount.
It’s an impressive camera size for inclusion with a smartphone but we want to know why anyone would drop that much in to a phone from a company that may or may not be around a year from now to support it? Why not drop that cash on a better supported phone or even, a more professional camera to snap those detailed shots?
We know, the iPhone doesn’t have close to a 41 megapixel camera but the thing of it is, is that the 1020 might have a 41 megapixel camera but it certainly doesn’t have the storage space for those incredibly detailed pictures. In fact, the 1020 comes with just 32GB of internal memory and has no external slot for increasing that number. Any photographer will tell you that this just isn’t acceptable. There is the option to store data online in a “digital locker” which seems to resolve the issue to a degree, but it occurs to us that for $300 a little more thought could have gone in to the process.
