Always On Torture Test giveaway: Nokia Lumia 1020

The Lumia 1020 wasn't feeling too well after a day at the winery. Perhaps you're the lucky doc who can get the yellow guy back on the wagon.

Nokia's made a name for itself in manufacturing tough phones, without feeling the need to tack words like "rugged" or "active" to the model name. That being said, it doesn't mean the phones can necessarily handle a good ol' fashioned grape stomping. It's a shame, considering the 41 megapixels of wine tasting the phone is capable of capturing.

Sure, the purple juice, along with an assortment of skins, stems, and water, turned out the lights on the 1020. However, given Nokia's nature, we believe there's a chance it can be revived. If you do happen to become the lucky one who receives this yellow beast in the mail, just beware of all wineries, breweries, and really any sort of drinking establishment. This thing likes to party.

You should know the drill by now, but just in case you forgot, here are the rules:

The Lumia 1020 bites the dust, but possesses some stellar structural integrity
