Wondering what will happen to the HTC 8x when the supposedly Lumia 928 will come on Verizon.
Would people move to the Lumia leaving their HTC behind..or just wait to upgrade? I can't decide..cuz even though I own a HTC 8x, I would very much like the new Lumia on the vzw network.

Nokia support sure is a thing of beauty, and a top end WP8 for Big Red is long overdue.
But is Nokia so much better as to return a good phone like the 8X, especially since the vast majority of HTC WP8 users would have to buy outright since most will be past the return date? I am not sure it is THAT much better.

I'm interested in the 928, but mainly due to a somewhat better camera and possibly more storage. Otherwise I don't think the 920/928 are that much better than my 8X. I am tempted by the 928, but don't know if I want to buy it for full retail.

the main difference i feel is the SUPPORT the Nokia is giving you, I'm writing this in capital cause its the most important thing you need when you buy any gadget now a days.
the main problem for HTC users mite be that the other storage option, as have seen people getting other storage filled to 1.2-2 Gbs,
having a phone with 16gb internal and the memory getting used for no reason mite b a pain.
old users may not upgrade but the new users surely will be tempted to get 928 rather than 8X

I'm fortunate that my lovely wife is still sporting a Trophy, and is willing to take my 822 when the 928 comes out, so I can get it at upgrade price. My wife says she likes to get the phone after I've had it a while so that, "the bugs are worked out." I'm good with that!
If I'd gotten the 822 without having this option, though, I'd have a real hard time spending the money to upgrade now. The desire would be really strong, but I'm doubting that the wallet would be cooperative, as I'm not going into debt for a phone, and I'm not depleting my emergency fund for it, either.

Everyone wonders why VZW launches phones late. It's because they know people are gonna sue each other and carry on. I don't know why our S4 launch is so far back but I have a feeling something will be awry once it's been on sale at other carriers for a few days. I know the network testers were pissed because Galaxy Nexus and S3 = awful reception
Note 2 and Odyssey = good reception
GS4 = awful reception again
