AT&T cut the cost of Nokia's Lumia 1020 smartphone by a healthy $100.

Available online and through AT&T retail stores, the Lumia 1020 is now selling for $199.99, down from $299.99 previously. That price requires the usual two-year agreement. Shipping is free with an online purchase, and buyers who order via the Web site can pick up the phone at their nearest AT&T outlet.

Customers who choose a one-year agreement will pay $449.99, while a month-to-month contract ups the price to $609.99. Those who opt for the AT&T Next plan will pay $27 per month for 20 months.

In August, AT&T tested the $199 price point for the Lumia 1020 in a few select markets, according to Windows Phone Central. But now the lower price is available across the country. On Wednesday, Amazon slashed the price of the 1020 to $199 , however, that offer lasted just one day.

Available in white, black, or yellow, the Lumia 1020 is most notable for its 41-megapixel camera. The phone also features a 4.5-inch AMOLED display, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of memory, and 32GB of storage.
