    How about the year? It's kind of a similar situation. From 2000 on I called it "two thousand xxxxx" until 2010, then I switched to "twenty ten, twenty eleven, ..."

    I like 909 as well, but people would wonder what's wrong with us if we had a 1020 and called it "nine oh nine."

    The Lumia one thousand and twenty. I couldn't imagine calling it that.
    They kept lowering the number when they were making new Lumias..they should've just gone down to 420.

    They should not do that, because people will think the 420 will have lower specs than the 520.

    I would say 'Ten Twenty' and it seems to fit well. Thousand twenty would sound terrible.
