Will Telus get the Nokia Lumia 1020 (quad core, 41mp camera) [release date July 11]?  I am think of changing providers just to get one.

Not exactly optimistic about it.  The leaked pictures point to a launch as AT&T exclusive in the US.  If a phone gets launched as an exclusive with AT&T in the US, which carrier would you typically associate with regarding its corresponding launch in Canada?

      Fair enough,  more then likely I will not be jumping ship, but it did get a fast response. I know with Telus I get reception where as the little companies and the two other major ones seem to be spotty in areas.

 

    I am not so interested in the 41mp camera as I am in the quad core because if I have to lock into a contract for another 3 years I was to make sure I have a camera that will evolve with the technology for at least the next month when I get it.

I highly doubt that it will have a quad core. Windows phone is highly optimized for what they have right now (1.5ghz S4 pro, 1 gig ram) if they change anything at all it will probably be 2 gigs of ram which should help smooth the device.

   So far it just a rumor but Nokia is rumored to be the first to release a quad core for the Windows Phone 8 brand.   The have been posted about Nokia also testing a quad core Windows phone.  Microsoft also is releasing an update to Windows Phone 8 which optimizes the OS for 1080P Resolution and quad core support.   This update should be released with Microsoft s Windows 8 Blue update.

it is a dual core snapdragon S4 (same as in 920). Other features include 41mp OIS backlit sensor camera, 2gb RAM, 32gb internal storage (Telefonica has a 64gb model), Gorilla Glass 3 and a 2000mAh battery.

 

I am really hoping Telus gets this device as well at a good price. Rogers got the 920 while Bell and Telus got the incredibly underachieving Ativ S. Anyone who buys WP is looking for either Nokia or HTC, but really just Nokia.

Also, I find it really interesting how Telus picks up the top Android phones (HTC One, SGS4), the latest and greatest iPhone, even the latest top blackberries (seriously), but all they offer on WP is the 610 and the Ativ S.

 

Unimpressed. Utterly, utterly unimpressed.

Not sure if we're getting it, but it should be on the www.telusmobility.com site if it does end up being released.

Hahaha, Kvwah, I just posted pretty much the same message on your comment on the MobileSyrup post about the 1020. I'm in the same boat with a Lumia 800.

Happy to see this thread!  My contract is over in six months... if Telus doesn't start carrying high-end Lumias I am leaving.  Come on, Telus!

 Telus needs a new line up for the Windows Phones.  I love my Windows Phone 7.8 and my contact is coming up for renewal.  I would hate to have to get the Samsung ATIV S, if another wireless company has something better.

Woohoo!  

 

I'm due for a phone refresh in a few months.  Now I just have to figure out how to see something on the available mobiles page besides iphones and a crap selection of Android and Blackberry handsets.

 

Sooo stoked!  The buzz on the 1020 has been pretty loud (and positive).

Come on Telus. My corporate contract is due for update. If you get Nokia Lumia 1020 onboard, I am gonna get 3 of them. Otherwise, I have to buy it from the market and switch to a better provider.

Hello Everyone.

 

This is js.  I managed to find out some information about the Nokia Lumia 1020.  It is a Microsoft Windows phone and will be released on TELUS in October 2013.  There is a reliable and most up to date website that I use from time to time called www.comparecellular.com  This site has the details and features about new smartphones coming out and what cellular providers will be carrying them.  This site also allows you to compare other phones to the one you already have before purchasing a new phone.  Before I purchased the LG Optimus G phone I used this site to find out what the Optimus G was all about.  After exploring this phone, I bought it and am enjoying it.

Rogers will have it at $600 outright, plus you can preorder it through them and get a free camera grip. Meanwhile it has been really quiet on the TELUS side.

$725 outright from TELUS - they wouldn't price match. Bought it from Rogers for $599 + tax, unlocked it or $15 from cellunlocker.net, works perfectly and is amazing. Both TELUS and Rogers use the RM-877 if you were wondering.
