As we approach the final countdown (arrested development anyone?) more rumors have appeared regarding the 1020’s destination and pricing, first off the “bad news”. It looks as if the 1020 will be priced at $299 PLUS a two year contract, seems pretty pricey (that’s new iPhone pricing); And if you dream of getting it off contract it might run you up close to $700.. The other piece of news which should elate some of you depending on where you live, and your carrier) is that a 64 Gb version of the device seems to be coming as an exclusive to Telefónica in Europe and Latin America (no word on the pricing for that version though).
