    Tom Warren likely knows much more than the average Joe. I have said this before, but the Verge and Tom specifically are VERY well respected by Microsoft and its PR team. He likely knows all about the new Lumia devices, but just like honestabe, he's embargoed on that info. If a leak pops up online, he often comments because the cat is outta the bag. To say Tom Warren knows "as much as we do" is incorrect.
    Dude its in his job description. He tells us everything he knows, therefore, we know everything he knows. I highly doubt he is embargoed seeing that he and his company is in no way in any affiliation with Microsoft, Verizon, or Nokia.

    I mean hey, nobody stopped him from revealing to is that the 928 has a metal body!

    Urine *****. Reporters frequently work under embargo and Tom is one who does. I used to do PR for Microsoft, so I'm not making this ish up. How do you think big reviews hit the internet right when products are revealed? They magically get products and info seconds before they are announced and have time to do an in-depth review??? No thanks Jeff.

    He tells us all the knows that he is allowed to share.

    I don't even want to know what your urine statement is, nor do I know who Jeff is.

    So you are saying that they allowed him to share with us that the 928 has a metal body?

    Hhhhmmmmm....catwalk on Verizon too ? The main reason I was thinking 928 is because I need to be on Verizon. Now if the catwalk shows up at Big Red too...might have to reconsider. What do you guys think ? If you had the choice between catwalk and 928 which would you choose ? If EOS showed up on Verizon that would be a no-brainer.
    Remember though - from the leaked pics of the catwalk - it does not have the xenon flash, which can be very useful.
    So my money would go for the 928 if it had the xenon flash... but of course, if these things are equal , i would go for the catwalk simply because its a slimmer device...but i wont sacrifice slimness for the extra capability the xenon flash gives me.

    I'm done. He was reporting on a rumor by bloomberg "Bloomberg reports" Nokia unveiling Lumia 928 for Verizon next month, says Bloomberg | The Verge
    Essentially, he was reporting on someone else's rumor.

    He has already stated on Twitter that Catwalk will be aluminum and Laser/928 will not be.

    More rumor..... From Comments over at the Verge...

    Nokia unveiling Lumia 928 for Verizon next month, says Bloomberg | The Verge

    : For what it’s worth my buddy, an ex-Verizon employee now working in Redmond, swears VZW will be announcing the 928 on Thursday of this week (April 25th). I hope he’s right, as I know a few people waiting on the release to move up from 2-year old iPhone 4’s (not 4S).

    Another 2 days...Hmmm Crossing fingers on the MicroSD thing....(because I will get it if it has it)

    Wasn't talking about that article. Nokia Lumia 928 to launch on Verizon in April with updated body and xenon flash | The Verge

    I've stated that too. And I will say something else when I hear another rumor, nothing short of what Tom is doing.

    I thought that at first, but arent the localised adaptations usually lower numbers like 822. Plus are the verizon versions of phones usually this different? Its not just the body, its the screen, body, xenon flash....maybe even internal components and SD card reader....we dont know yet. It would be an off business choice to do that much R+D for one carrier in one country (even though US is big)
    Think about this - is there any international Lumia that ends in a digit other than zero? For that matter, is there any other carrier in the world so far, besides Verizon, that has a Lumia with a digit ending in zero? (Yes, I know that TMO is going to get one, but they don't have it yet). No, 928 will not go international. Another thing to think about - what other carrier (besides Sprint) uses CDMA?

    I personally don't put a lot of stock in what the Verge says regarding Windows Phone.
    Yeah, I'm with you.

    David...let's keep our fingers crossed that we can pre-order on Thursday. I don't want to have to wait until the third week in May to get my new phone.

    I don't plan on pre-ordering it. I will walk into a Verizon store with cash in hand when it comes in. I think I want a white or red one (leaning towards white) but we won't know till release about the colors and timing on them. I would like to physically see them both.

    This, of course, all depends if it has the MicroSD slot, as I won't be buying it if it does not and will be very disappointed....crossing fingers that it does...

    all should be known on Thursday, if the rumors are right, time will tell.

    I'm wondering if this will actually have 64GB and no SD card slot... No inside info, just speculating.

    I would actually be okay with that. 32GB and no SD is too little for me, but 64GB overall would be enough.

    64gb OR 32gb with a MicroSD would make me get this phone. I dont see a 64gb model coming but, another poster here "claimed" he saw a document from Verizon saying that it will come with 32gb AND a MicroSD slot... Time will tell if he is accurate or not.

    If it comes with 16gb and a MicroSD slot, I am pretty sure I will skip it....even that is too little space for me (You cant install apps and some content to MicroSD cards) and does not solve the problem I have with my 8x...

    Changing the look ? Now ? What do you know ? If they are NOW changing the look, we wont see this phone for another month or 2. If they are going to annouce the phone and release it a week later, they need to have stock for it.

    Hmmmm....

    Ok DavidinCT. I think we all, and I mean ALL, of us just need to take a break from this for a bit. Just everyone calm down a bit. Take a deep cleansing breath.... snnniiiifffff..... phhhheeewwww..... ;-)

    It's Friday, surely it's 5 o'clock somewhere. Let's just relax a min. Im wondering if people are going to start trolling seeing as how susceptable we are to ANY info. ;-)

    I think Shellhari is referring to the difference between the 920 and the 928. The 928 has a new look, though they are essentially the same phone.

    Wife got an 822 last night and I asked them about the 928. Either they are playing dumb, or really are, but they were baffled by what I was asking.

    Also told us that her current Trophy didn't have a capacitive touchscreen and that you had to push the screen in to work it, which clearly is wrong. Im wondering if he was confusing the regular capacitive touchscreen with the super sensitive screen. It just shows that they are not trained well on the windows phones. They kept trying to push the Z10 or preordering a GS4.

    928 case being sold on Amazon. Phone looks like a 920 (Nokia logo position on front and size of flash on back, but the flash opening is large enough for the zenon flash and has an opening for the rear speaker).

    seen that case before, but just noticed something unusual which i hadnt seen before!
    on the back side, top right - what are those two openings for?
    Also, interestingly, the top edge has an opening (just like the sides for the volume/power buttons).... Now this is likely the headphone and perhaps the micro usb connector, but do you think thats all that would fit in there? :) Notice there is no cut out on the bottom edge of the case.

    You do know they just shopped a 920 in the 928 case just to show it with a phone in it.
