‘Insta-photographers’ are sure to be excited by the latest phone in the Nokia Lumia range, with the razor sharp camera on the Lumia 1020 tipped to see a rise in #nofilter among budding photographers – and of course it’s coming to Telstra 4G.

The eagerly-anticipated Nokia Lumia 1020 has a 41-megapixel sensor camera with high resolution zoom so you can take pics like a pro and upload them at super-fast 4G speeds on-the-go without needing to carry around a clunky SLR and lens.

Photos taken with the Nokia Lumia 1020For those who love taking photos, the Nokia Pro Camera lets you shoot in super high resolution then rotate, reframe and crop without impairing the quality of the picture. It also captures sharp, detailed HD video, so users can zoom in up to six times without losing quality.

While these are brilliant features for a budding Ansel Adams, they wouldn’t be of much use if you couldn’t share your masterpieces on-the-go at super-fast 4G speeds on the Telstra Mobile Network.

As I may have told you once or twice before, we now have 4G coverage in more than 100 metro and regional locations. That’s 4G coverage for 66% of the Australian population today and by Christmas, Telstra will increase its 4G coverage to a whopping 85% of the Australian population.

Running on the Windows Phone 8 (WP8) platform, the Nokia Lumia 1020 supports Microsoft Exchange accounts and comes preloaded with a Microsoft Office Mobile suite including Word Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile, Excel Mobile and OneNote Mobile.
