Nokia Lumia 1020 now up for sale at AT&T

The new Lumia is available through the carrier in a variety of colors and at a variety of prices.

U.S. consumers eyeing Nokia's new Lumia 1020 can now buy the phone from AT&T.

Equipped with a 41-megapixel camera, the 1020 is available through AT&T's Web site and will be sold in AT&T stores starting today.

Buyers can choose from among three colors -- yellow, black, or white. That's hopefully a simple enough decision. What may be trickier is picking the price and the plan. AT&T offers four options for purchasing the phone.

You can go for a month-to-month plan with no long-term commitment and pay the full retail price of $659.99. You can select a one-year contract and shell out $549.99. You can go the usual two-year route and pay $299.99. Or you can opt for the AT&T Next plan. AT&T Next lets you pay off your smartphone in monthly installments , the major benefit being that you can upgrade your phone once a year.

In addition to its high-resolution camera, the Lumia 1020 comes with a 4.5-inch 1,280x768-pixel display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 4G LTE support, 32GB of storage, and Windows Phone 8.

Updated at 6:40 a.m. PT: The 1020 will be available in AT&T stores starting today.
