Five days after its official unveiling, the Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone is now available to pre-order at US mobile operator AT&T. The new smartphone runs for $299.99, on a two-year contract, and will ship on July 23. It goes on sale starting July 26.
By contrast, on a two-year agreement, similar devices like the Apple iPhone 5, HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 are available for $199.99, at AT&T. The US mobile operator also offers the Lumia 920, which can be had for $99.99, alongside the same type of contract (24 months).

Microsoft Store will also offer the Lumia 1020 for pre-order, however the Windows Phone is not yet available at the time of writing this article. When purchased from the software giant's online store, buyers also receive a free Nokia Camera Grip accessory upon signing a two-year agreement.
Available colors for the Lumia 1020 include black, yellow and white, with each trim featuring a matte finish. That said, Nokia's matte finishes are still somewhat slippery, so you might want to pay extra attention when handling the smartphone or invest in a case.
