Some factual errors in: Duh!

This is a desperate move by a fading cell phone maker. I seriously doubt that the buying public is going to abandon the wealth of iOS and Android software, and put up with Windows Phone 8, to get 41mp with one fixed low priced lens, low DR, high noise, no VF, no flash options...

Points taken, but:

  • The 1020 has a Xenon flash and LED (like an iPhone) for AF assist and low-light video.
  • The sensor seems relatively efficient, i.e. low noise. We can wait for the DxO report or equivalent.

For me the non-removable battery, and lack of microSD slot, are perhaps the biggest drawbacks.
