Who's getting it? Who already has it? Anyone have additional information?

I'm getting this as soon as its available. I was planning on getting the 1520, but with this being a little smaller it is going to be perfect.
Also where's tcman. Been? I'm sure he could shed some light on the subject

Nokia Lumia 929 render leaks, matches earlier photo for Verizon
Not to mention the fact that numerous pictures of the 1520 have already been leaked by people who have it. That also has not been announced and is rumored to release on AT&T around the same time that the NL929 is on VZW.
Hopefully he'll tell us more soon.

It's quite surprising that the Verizon model will be so different to the global big seller. As it will be size wise totally different to Lumia 1520, I wonder how horrible will the accessory support be from Nokia and 3rd parties.

920 has been the first smartphone I have had in a long time that hasn't felt like it has slowed down over time. Bought it day one and it still performs like a champ. I would have to see major speed improvements and several major exclusive features to jump from it. That said, this will probably be the first WP for a lot of WP virgins.

Another thing that I've been thinking about is the white leak. The white in that picture does not look very glossy. Is it possible that it's a matte white? That would be a first for Nokia Lumia's as far as I know...
Also, check out the difference in the color of the Verizon logos from white 928 to the white 929. The white 929 has a much more faded grey colored logo, as would be typical for a matte material as opposed to glossy. Here's the white 928 for reference.

I have a 928 and really don't want a bigger phone. However, if they can squeeze a 4.8 screen into a case that is almost the same size as the 928, I would get it. It looks like in the photo, they tightened up the top and maybe even the bottom, above and below the screen.

A 5" WP8 would be better for me then the 6" rumored to be patrolling AT&T soon, so this has my attention. I really liked the 4.7" size of the T2, so stepping back down to 4.3" on the L900 is a little more of an adjustment then I thought it would be.
I expect a little more "conservative" styles from Verizon. They seem to be serious in putting out devices that are non-offensive.A closed mouth gathers no feet.

I don't get why they would do such an incremental release. Marginally bigger than the 928 (6" would be a more noticeable leap) and the 16mp version is a far cry from the 1020.
Well, I do know why, Verizon hates us. :P

I much prefer this modest display increase to the half a foot device that's going to be out on At&t.

So like I said...incremental (at least in my view, BUT remember I already have a 928! -- I would need something offering a HUGE change to make a difference).
