Windows Phone Fanatics can now preorder the Nokia Lumia 1020 from one of three retailers for $299 with a 2-year contract on AT&T. You can place your order at Best Buy, AT&T, or Microsoft — all of which have the same contract price. If you want to buy the Nokia Lumia 1020 off contract  right away, you won’t have as many options — but there are differences in price.

The Microsoft store is selling the phone off contract for $699, while Best Buy has it listed at $749. At this time AT&T is not selling the 1020 off contract.

I called up my local Microsoft store today to get some more details, mostly wanting to know about the off contract purchase. They said I can order over the phone or in the store today and they will charge me $25 to hold the preorder. The phone should arrive at their store on July 26th in the afternoon and that’s when they will charge me the full amount for the device. As far as the free camera grip accessory goes, you only get that if you sign a contract with AT&T through the Microsoft store website.

Are you planning on getting the Nokia Lumia 1020? We sure as hell are!
