Back of the Nokia Lumia 820
The Lumia 820 has a matte black finish and there is no other color option from AT&T. You may have seen other colors and this is accomplished by purchasing new covers that fit over the back and four sides. These additional covers also add wireless charging capability, but I did not get a chance to try any of these out and haven't seen the color options. The Lumia 820 feels rock solid and appears to be a very well designed device. When you then consider it is available for $49.99, you will see it is quite a deal.
Carl Zeiss optics is on the Lumia 820
The Lumia 820 doesn't have all of the advanced PureView technology of the Nokia Lumia 920, but it does have Carl Zeiss optics and takes decent photos.
