    Has everyone read the twitter person's account of spotting the 928 in the wild?? Not sure if others caught this, but he stated the screen went all the way to the edges... Unless he meant the glass goes all the way to the edges, the interface clearly does not.

    yes, he posted on redditt, and supposedly works for verizon...
    I think since the sides of the 928 are flat and not like the 920, the screen may give the impression of going to the edges...

    Yea. I saw it too. Too bad he didn't ask any questions like memory, card slot, etc. He just looked at the phone and it's weight and size....

    The other guy that was spreading information regarding the 928 today (at Reddit also) said that there will be 32GB but no SD-card... But then again, it may be just a troll.

    At this point, until I see something official from Verizon, I'm pretty much just going to ignore anything related to a date or features and not waste any other time on conjecture and rumor mills. A random tweet from some guy isn't helping any.

    Announced on Tuesday the 30th, and released on Thursday the 2nd.
    This would make the most strategic and business sense. The longer the phone is delayed the less they will sell of it with GS4 looming, not to mention EOS and Catwalk. They need to get the 928 out and market it ASAP. If it is not available for purchase in stores by May 9 latest it will be a missed opportunity.

    personally I will continue to read every rumor on the se boards obsessively! I have already admitted to my impatience and the days without rumors or speculation are unbearable. Until this baby is released the rumors are all I've got!

    32 GB should be fine for me if they fix the "other" storage reclamation issues.

    They do a have a app for Nokia phones that will help with that and it will show what is using it... On current devices, the "Shrink Storage" app works if you have a very large other folder...

    I'm another one who is done with the rumor mill on this device. When it drops, it drops, Maybe this Thursday or next...what ever... If every rumor comes to this device, it will be insane but, we know how rumors and device go....

    Odin, I guess you and I will be reading a lot of rumors till this thing is released. There is a fix to this, all it would take is Verizon actually saying something. They could even say we don't have a release date because of whatever reason. Most people would understand that sometimes expected release dates get pushed back. But at this point what is so secret, it appears the whole world knows about the 928. So why not just say something. It is like Verizon executives spend all day reading these rumor forums and just spend their day laughing at all of us.

    The 928 comes out tomorrow morning. The device will cook breakfast and provide flattering compliments for the first 100 buyers.

    You're welcome.

    K, I'm going to try my hand at a release prediction! I predict the Lumia 928 will be announced tomorrow, April 30th, and will be available for sale on Thursday, May 9th.

    I've been anticipating this for so long, that I predict I will want to wait until May 14th just to make sure there isn't something better right around the corner. I also predict that my impatience will almost immediately drive me to go ahead and pick up the 928 before the 14th rolls around.

    And I have heard it does not and a few others that it does... Another rumor... Till it's announced, we are all guessing... Unless someone has 100% proof (and need to show a document on it), it's just another rumor...

    It has what appears to be an microSD slot, but it's actually a miniature waffle maker. Dispense batter with the included syringe, 2 minutes, add syrup or favorite fruit. Bam!

    We don't know anything official, but all Verizon smartphones are global ready* so I'm 99.999% sure this one will be as well.

    *There was a while when 4G devices just launched that the 1st gen ones were not global but now they all are again.

    I would add another .001% to that.

    From the FCC filing, you can see that it was tested for LTE, CDMA and GSM bands.

    A little tidbit I should share. So this delay in the release of the 928 has become weird since we have heard about the device for a long time now. I decided to do some sleuthing last week and logged into an old Android forum which I used to post on years ago and sought out an old member who worked for Verizon to see if he had info on the 928 (he used to post early details about Android devices back in the day).

    Well after about a week he finally replied to my PM and the sad news was that he no longer works for Verizon, but he still had some contacts there. Unfortunately his contacts didn't know much about the 928 since they are low level, but the info he got was that the phone was supposed to be already out by now but the delay has been due to legal reasons.

    That's all he knew and said.

    Now I don't know what kind of legal reasons would hold up a phone but my best guess is that it could do something with the exclusivity on the 920? They are different phones though so I don't see why that would matter.

    Or could another OEM be holding it up for some reason like a patent issue?

    Probably waiting on HTC to sue Nokia for copying their design. Oh, wait - that suit would go the other way - never mind.
