So we all know that the Lumia 928 will only be releasing in Black or White for now even though weve seen rumors about a cyan and red option. The red Lumia 822 didnt release on Verizon until about 3 months after the orginal white, black, and grey colors launched. So when do you think other colors will be available? June, July?

"Black and white only. Idiots."
"Yeah, the more I look, the more it's growing on me. That's probably what I'll get. Rather have red or blue, but the white is starting to grow on me."
You are talking about the colors in more than one place. But honestly man, I meant no harm. I would just get a colored case and call it a day. This just seems like too good of a phone to pass up on and have to wait months just to get a different colored back.

Anyhow dude, I really didn't mean any harm and I apologize for the way I said it. With that being said, which color are you gonna go with? Would you consider a colored case for it?

I'd wager more colors are coming. I'd also wager big incentives to buy are coming. If you can wait, say, 3 months, you can probably get a red one with some kind of bundle or discount.
Or, if you need it immediately, you get a white one next week.

As this discussion is a about colors of the phone and finishes, it brings up a question I had for 920 owners. How is the gloss finish on the 920 on scratches ? I can just see a shiny finish with a billion micro scratches on it. Thoughts ?XV6700(Apache)>XV6800->HTC Touch Pro 2(XV6875) ->HTC Trophy ->VZW HTC 8X ->Nokia Lumia 928 -> Nokia Lumia ICON (929)

The whole idea is to push this phone as hard as they're pushing the Razr M. The Razr M and the 928 will be the company's spotlight devices. The M launched in white and black, then had a pink variant, and now a blue variant. It frequently goes on sale for free or for $50 off. Expect these same things to happen with the 928.RSM for VZW

I'm just torn. I have been eligible for an upgrade since February, and usually want to throw my Samsung Droid Charge against a wall at least 5 times a day. But I was really looking forward to cyan. Do they make ultra thin (read nearly imperceptibly thin) skins/covers that would be cyan? I've never really kept up with phone cases as I've never used one.

grrrrrrr... I want the red 928 and I want it now! Not sure what I'll be doing now with the 928 only being available in black or white initially and no word on when the additional colors will be available. Do I go ahead and get a black or white 928? Do I wait an undefined amount of time for a colored 928? Do I stay on T-Mobile instead of switching back to Verizon as planned? hmmmm...

I'd wager that there will be no colors for this device, with the exception of MAYBE a limited edition Red.
Verizon's entire lineup of phones are primarily Black; there are a few White devices, and they may have made an exception with the 8X given that California Blue was HTC's signature device. I think the 822 and 8X was in Red, but they were limited editions, for a limited time only.
If you want the 928 now, AND color, I think you are simply going to have to purchase a case. Even though Nokia has been known, for years, for making devices with various colors, Verizon has the 'corporate folk' mentality; so fun, playful, vibrant colors in their lineup just ain't gonna happen!
