The Nokia Lumia 1020 Launched in Kenya

A Windows 8 Nokia Lumia phone that stands out for its revolutionary camera of 41 Megapixes, the 1020 is a beauty to behold.

The phone was officially launched in the market on Thursday last week (31st Oct) at a colourful ceremony on top of KICC (the helipad). I’d never been up there and the view was breathtaking. Looking down on the city of lights, Nairobi was ethereal, it’s a city that you fall in love with. You know that in its alleys danger lurks, but from up here all you see is beauty, and all you feel is the wind blowing through your hair.

Here and there, I could see several invited guests (of the launch) taking pictures with their phones but I can tell you that no picture can come close to capturing the actual view from the helipad! If you are a Nairobian, make sure you go up there at least once in your lifetime.

Here’s a picture I took with the Nokia Lumia 1020:

This is a device that excels at being both a phone and a camera. The quality of the photographs is amazing. It is currently retailing at Safaricom shops at Ksh. 79, 999 including 1.5GB data and a special accessory bundle including the DC18 charger (wireless charging pad) and a Mozo leather cover.
