It may be no coincidence that the price of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is reduced shortly after Microsoft buys out the Finnish mobile phone company.
The price of the handset is now available for $199 (under £130) after the smartphone was cut by $100 less in the US which may be a sign that the Windows giant plans to make a few changes at Nokia.
Microsoft is also offering the camera grip accessory for free when customers pick up the device, for a limited time only. Of course, the quick reduction in price could have nothing to do with the company taking over the Finnish manufacturer, but it does seem convenient timing for the cost change.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 hasn't yet made it across to the UK, despite being in the States since the end of July. However, when it does make it over, it could arrive with a slim-downed price.
