Nokia Lumia 1020: OIS, 2GB RAM, and photos from the device revealed

Summary:It's nearly impossible for anything to remain secret today, and as we approach the big Nokia Lumia event, even more details of the device have appeared.

We are now just a couple of days away from hearing about all the details of the Nokia Lumia 1020 , and the folks at Windows Phone Central scored all kinds of juicy details to whet our appetites.

I own a Nokia 808 PureView device and tried to go back to using it this past weekend, but just can't go back to using Symbian after diving into the Android, iOS, and Windows Phone world. I look forward to getting this same advanced camera functionality on a modern Windows Phone 8 device, but am still not sure I am ready to get another AT&T exclusive. Who am I kidding, though? Of course I will likely pick up a yellow Nokia Lumia 1020.

New details revealed by Windows Phone Central, not officially confirmed yet, include optical image stabilization (as seen on the flagship Lumia devices) and 2GB of RAM (something new for Windows Phone). It looks like it will have wireless charging via a backplate, similar to how it works on the Lumia 925.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore pretty much confirmed the name, Nokia Lumia 1020, with a couple of photos that appeared on Flickr this past weekend that have since been marked as private.

This is a big week for Nokia and Windows Phone. The Lumia 1020 won't appeal to those looking for a slim phone, but camera phone enthusiasts will be pleased.
