NEW YORK (July 11, 2013)--The Nokia Lumia 1020 phone introduced Thursday at an event in New York will run Microsoft's Windows Phone system and has a 41-megapixel camera that records more detail than other camera phones and even point-and-shoot cameras.
More pixels mean more sensors for capturing the light that forms an image.
Although more expensive cameras with better lenses can take better images, Nokia says the Lumia 1020 gives people the ability to take good pictures with a device they always carry.
It will be available July 26 for $300 with a two-year service agreement with AT&T.
Advance orders begin July 16.
