Personally, I might change phones, but at a price point of $299, I will probably but it through the eBay venue. Hopefully, I might sell my 920 for $280 to $310. It's black, with one small scuff, three cases, original packaging, and Ghost Armor. Eh, sorry, I rambled. Anyone interested? Haha kidding, wrong place for that. But, onto the topic. Is anyone going to upgrade to the Lumia 1020 from their now 'outdated' Nokia 920?

I was perfectly content with my 920 and was ready to ride out the contract with no problems. After seeing that demo today I'm not so sure. I never should've watched it!

Yep. I'll pre-order this bad boy in store (if possible), and then get one on launch day. Been waiting for this phone, even if I do love my 920 a ton.
I hope that launch won't be a cluster**** of craziness that usually takes place when AT&T launches a Lumia, but it probably will be.prjkthack

No, as I don't have a 920, but I'm certainly ditching my 900 for it! Lol. But yeah, aside from my desperate need to move up to WP8, the 1020 strikes me as a perfect synthesis of all the improvements of the 925 and 928 (minus the 925's aluminium bits), packaged along with that awesome camera in a device that I can actually get on my carrier.

Stop complaining about the damn price. Bought Lumia 920 for 599 euros and will likely put +600 euros on Lumia 1020 before end of this year.
Granted in US, where phone market is nothing else than operator controlled with everybody being tied to a contract and you already have Lumia 920, it might indeed be worth to wait till the next wave of flagships (likely around October already in Nokia World) if Lumia 1020 doesn't tickle you right.
For me who uses 808 PV pretty much as a standalone camera and MP3 player these days, I'm so stoked to be able combine my Lumia 920 and 808PV! I'm also a bit surprised they went all the way by adding OIS, 6-lenses and BSI. Never was expecting that to happen. They still managed to make the over all body thinner than Lumia 920, so this is looking perfect for me.

Funny how people are saying $299 is expensive, what should people not on at&t and importing say paying the unlocked price? I will probably be upgrading my 920, this camera tech is unique and while there will be 1080p quad core WP's later this year none of those features really do anything special or unique by themselves, they'll just be spec counts. Just like the 808 this tech will be hard to top for at least a year and with the added RAM seems a worthy move from my 920.

it should be added that Lumia 1020 yellow is matte.
I liked yellow Lumia 1020, but with the addition of matte yellow I think i'm locked to go for yellow option.
EDIT: It seems like all of the colors are matte actually.

Usually, the wife gets my hand-me-down phones. This time she's putting her foot down, refused my 920 and told me we were both going to get the 1020. I said "yes ma'am"! But will not buy for $299 from ATT. Instead we will go the usual route of waiting a month or two for the phone to show up on Amazon, since they never fail to undercut ATT pricing. Usually, by at least half the price.

I wanted to get this and it is an amazing device but I convinced myself to pass it up for now. The camera is the biggest upgrade from the 920, which is amazing but it is not needed. I love photography and would love to have this device, but the lumia 920 takes great pictures and I own a great point and shoot and a dslr. The price will come down and end of the year we may have eos2. So I will wait it out and try to get around 2 years before making a switch, by then windows phone 9 might be out.

If I had a 920... or if I was on AT&T for that matter... I most certainly would upgrade!
I guess the only good thing about Verizon is the lack of tough decisions...Try out my first Windows 8 app, ModernCalc! It's free and I would love to hear your feedback!

I will have to see . On other sites it has been stated we are getting the nokia pro camera app. I want to see a 920 pic and 1020 pic comparison first. IF its not a huge leap I will not buy the 1020 and will wait for a 1080p screen nokia later this year.
