    Speaking for myself, if I were doing traveling and needed entertainment I would rather watch movies and TV shows on a tablet or laptop than on my phone. Watching things for long periods of time on a small screen doesn't do it for me. As for pictures I usually sync them off of my phone after a while so I never end up with gigs of them.

    Music is probably the only thing I would need space for but at the moment I carry a separate mp3 player so I'm not too bothered about that either.

    But with that said people have different preferences and extra storage wouldn't be a bad thing.

    will it be launched in one color with back shells sold separately? Me thinks so!
    Not as worried about the color as much as "BMC77" said it has "32gb and expandable memory."

    Crossing my finger this is true, as it would be epic.... Just think...96gb of space on a phone (can a modern phone take a 128gb MicroSDXC card ?)

    Man, I am so pumped!!

    Does your NDA cover release info, or does it relate mainly to hardware?

    Guys. I am so excited for you. I don't mind leaking rumors and stuff but I signed my NDA for the 928 a week ago. I love you guys but Verizon has been very good to me so I gotta respect that.

    This phone is the **** though.

    Honestabebread has said that the phone would come out a week or two after he sees the phone. We know that he has seen it and signed an NDA so hopefully it is right around the corner! I am so impatient!

    I'm ready to dump my iPhone 5. The funny thing is that over the last few weeks I've only been using it to check Twitter and this forum for updates on the 928.

    Rumor or BS ? Nokia Lumia 928 has the first 1080p display on a Windows Phone 8 device ?

    From site "Now winp.cn reports that @evleaks has claimed that Lumia 928 will be the first windows phone to sport 1080p resolution display."

    Crazy Rumor: Lumia 928 to sport 1080p resolution display? | Nokiapoweruser

    Submitted as a tip, wonder how true it is.... or just all the crap is coming out of woodwork before it's release...(25th ?)

    1080p at 4.5 inches is ridiculous. That is an honest turn off for me. Its just a waste of battery life. Plus isn't the screen 15:9?

    Good question. I just saw it and posted it here. Better detail on images ? I will admit, in a 4.5" display, a 1080p display is not that differernt from a 720p display, most people would not be able to tell the difference.

    I'm more interested in the rumor of a 32gb AND MicroSD slot....A long as it has a 720p display, I am happy but a perk would be if it has the GDR3 update WITH the FM radio support, that would be epic as well. I miss listening to baseball games on my phone :( I have a HTC Trophy around just for that.....(and games that are not supported on WP8 yet)

    Would be interesting if it was the FIRST 1080p WP8 device tho...

    Oh I definitely agree with that. (I miss listening to morning talk shows lol). Ps: 720p would make it 16:9 as well lol. 1280 768 would make it 15:9

    I am trying to decide if I would pull the trigger on a black or white 928 if they don't offer red on day 1. Very tough choice. Need to move to Verizon and upgrade my phone but DAMN that Red looks sweet.

    I would bet after release or public annoucement (I've been under a ton of NDA's before) and by then all the info would be public....

    I'm leaning towards a white one myself but, the red does look sweet.... I wont get it day one, maybe a few days to a week later.

    Ummm...... Yeah. I know that. I've been under NDA, as well - and with Windows Phone. The question was more one of "when" will he be able to discuss the phone? As in a date. A round-about way of asking when it will launch.....

    Never mind.....

    I wonder when cases will be available. I know a lot of people say you don't need them, but I am paranoid. I want a case and a screen protector. Might mean I have to wait a little longer to get the phone.

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I post on another forum but I keep tabs on this sub forum because I was told there were "Verizon Insiders" that knew of devices that might be coming out for Verizon. After keeping tabs here for about the last 5 months I really have call BS on most of the things these "insiders" talk about. These guys are just stringing along the rest of the posters here with their fake rumors and most of the guys here keep falling for it.

    Remember back last year when the 920 came out? One of the alleged insiders here said that a Nokia Lumia 922 was about to come out for Verizon. According to his knowledge it was supposed to have a quad core processor and more beefy camera. First it was supposed to be announced around Black Friday, then around Christmas, then after new years.... until it never came out and that guy stopped posting as much for a while. Funny how the 922 never existed but these "insiders" were so sure of it.

    Then none of them mentioned anything about the 822 until real insiders leaked the information on other websites.

    None of the "insiders" here mentioned anything about the 928 until Verge and other sites started talking about rumors of the Catwalk and EOS. If you go back and read old threads after those rumors came out you will see these "insiders" talking about the catwalk coming out for Verizon. It turns out that the Catwalk and 928 are different devices. Just taking wild guesses again.

    They also said that the 928 would have an aluminum unibody... false again. Once evleaks showed off a white 928 then the "insider" started talking about how the 928 would have different colors. They also kept saying that the new Verizon phone would be an upgrade to the 920 (better camera, better screen, gpu, etc) but the specs were leaked and now they are saying that it was a 920 redesign all along.

    If you don't believe me go back and read their false rumors and you will see that most of them never come true and they always say things like, "well this MAY be included" or "it MIGHT have this feature"... Well duh, a phone coming out 6 months after another phone has better specs than the old one. Who would have thought that would happen? Way to go out on a limb "insiders". Truth is if you pay attention to their lies you will see that they don't have inside knowledge but instead they are just faking it and taking wild guesses. Real insiders give real info and don't play guessing games. I haven't seen a single thing from them that they announced before everyone else that turned out to be true. Don't fall for the BS.

    Now that posters are asking the "insider" for info on an SD card he hides behind the good old NDA argument. If you were worried about your job you would not have told people you had inside information in the first place. Face it this guy has no clue on whether or not the phone has an sd card slot and he just used the NDA excuse to cover his **** in case he turns out to be wrong.

    Don't believe everything you read online. This guy might work for Verizon but I doubt he has any real information. It is actually quite fun to read old threads to see how many times these guys mentioned "hearing things" that turned out to be wrong or never happened. They make up so much that they often contradict themselves too.

    You don't need to be so condescending, but I do agree that there are some few people who believe internet sources without doing some more checking out. I'm sure it's partly due to excitement/nervousness though.

    ON another note, I think it is pretty easy to tell which rumours were more likely/less likely. For example, I didn't believe in the aluminum body rumor (which only SOME news sources, mostly small 3rd party new sources, reported). It was pretty obvious people were getting the laser/928 and catwalk mixed up. I'm not really sure where you're going with your post. Like you said, they're rumors. Nobody ever claimed anything.

    Flubbo, you mad bro?

    There is at least one person on here who has inside info, and he has hinted stuff along the way, but is under an NDA now, so no more talking until we hit the official announcement.

    I hate to break it to you man but things change all the time in this industry. I know some things MacPhisto posted have not come to pass but he has never claimed to represent 100% information, just some interesting speculation from his friend in the company.

    I have a pretty good track record though. I told everyone about the Share Everything plans a while before they went public or even leaked. I also talked about the 8X well before anyone even knew what Wp8 would entail.

    All of this said. I have been wrong a few times but I just kind of report what I hear
