    As we know, everything so far has been pretty much rumor besides knowing a new Nokia device is being released because of the FCC documents but, nothing has been clear besides what it MIGHT have.

    This is a conformation that the Lumia 928 DOES exist and will be going to Verizon....

    I just wanted to share...

    Is this confirmation of something or is this a Verizon rep confusing 920 and 928?

    In any case, this is confirmation of nothing. Especially not confirmation that it's going to Verizon. "I have no information" isn't "it will be on our network!"
    Though we know it will be, anyway.

    the tweet no longer exists..
    so this tells us that either vzwsupport misunderstood (lumia 920 vs 928) or got in trouble for tweeting about it haha.. so it basically tells us nothing

    Scroll down to David's tweet to Verizon, and then click on "View conversation". The Verizon responses will expand into view.

    You should ask them what's so fantastic about it if they have no information. :)

    This is Verizon we are talking about, They NEVER leak anything from Reps, Many Verizon customers even if it was a iphone, Android devices, etc, They never give anything up.

    That is why I posted this, No it does not tell features, No it does not tell exact release time, No it does not answer your question BUT, what it does answer, This is a Verizon rep who is saying it's a fantastic device. Why is that so cool ?

    Even Nokia has not confirmed that the device even exists, Only think "official" we know is the FCC documents and we can't even be 100% sure that is the 928.

    Take it with a grain of salt, but, everything I have seen about this phone has been rumor and we are hearing from a Verizon rep saying it's a great device. This means he actually used it, so he knows about it, meaning, IT DOES EXIST.

    And this is more info than you found on any site giving just rumor info....at least in my eyes...no ?

    They won't say a damn thing until next week at the very earliest. They don't want to squash any Z10 sales this weekend. Heck, if the Z10 sells like hotcakes don't be surprised if they don't mention anything and it just shows up on the shelf one day.

    yea, i agree - 3rd or 4th week of april is my guess as to when the "announcement" will be made - with a 1 to 2 week timeline for when the device will be available...

    This is a major bummer. It was absolutely critical to get the 928 on Verizon before the Z10.

    Well, if it makes you feel better I think a majority of Verizons Z10 sales are going to end up being returns. Verizon seems to have blocked side loaded Android apps, and it's stuck with old firmware that gives the Z10 TERRIBLE battery life. I for one am bummed as I was planning on getting the Z10 and 928.

    I don't see how this is confirmation the guy on Twitter, probably a 23 year old that just graduated with a Communications degree, has held the device.
    People here are calling it a fantastic device all the time, but none of them have held it.

    Really, this confirms nothing at all. You're reading an enormous amount into it.

    I insincerely apologize for confusing you with my poorly constructed sentence that maneuvered between tenses. I opted not to proofread that message. It appears to have caused great harm to those who read it and will indubitably wreak future havoc and confuse those who read it in time to come. I award myself 0 points and may God have mercy on my soul.

    Sincerely, now and when I travel back to the past to read this statement in present tense, and when I travel back to the future to reread things that have yet to pass...

    I got a Z10 yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised coming from the 8x...seem just as fast with no lag or anything...BUT, and you can go over to the crackberry threads and read about them...they are doing something i have personally never had happen with my 8x and that is random reboots, two random reboots this morning and so far no one had any suggestions as to why, since others seem to be have the same problem. I will take WP8's stability and i have noticed a recent uptake in games hitting the WP8 store. Its not that the z10 is bad, but there is nothing that pushes it past a high end WP8 offering, so i will just wait for the Lumia 928...

    As a matter a fact it seems specs wise the Z10 is almost identical to the 8x, and since i have a Windows Surface RT, and an Xbox, the 8x gets the push...heck i would have never looked to switch it there was an "Other Storage" issue.
