I think even by Windows Phone standards the $299 Nokia Lumia 1020 is moving slowly, based on the absence of the initial shortages which seems to plague every significant Windows Phone launch.
A lower price will probably help, making it good news that Amazon.com is edging the price down 10%, from $299.99 to $269.99, of course on contract.
The commitment-free price is actually higher however, at $699.99, but if your goal is to get your hands on the handset as cheaply as possible Amazon, for now, appears to be the place to go.
See the handset at Amazon here.
Thanks IK for the tip.
