Nokia Announces Lumia 1020 Coming to Rogers & Telus

It’s official, Rogers and Telus will be getting the Nokia Lumia 1020 will be coming to Canada. Unfortunately, there is no mention of when, or how much it will cost. Also, there is no mention of the bands support or the availability of accessories like the camera grip. Both Rogers and Telus have a great chance to empower the mobile photo enthusiast. Based on the number of people that have stopped me and asked check out my Lumia 1020, there’s a significant demand for such a phone.

In case you’re not familiar with the Lumia 1020, it’s the latest premier device from Nokia. It’s thinner than previous Lumia devices that have been released in Canada, and lighter. It also sports a 41 MegaPixel camera – yes, you read that right – 41MP. The one thing you won’t find on the 1020, is wireless charging. That was removed in this model, presumably to help make room for the camera assembly and to keep it as thin as possible. But don’t worry, if wireless charging is something you want, there is a case you can add that adds it back in. The phone will be available in the yellow and black.

It’s expected that this phone will hit the stores in mid-October, but there’s no official date at this time. As soon as we hear details about pricing or availability, we’ll let you know.
