    It will miss the event on the 14th because it was never intended to be there. May 14th has been speculation since day one. But the 928 is a U.S. only phone. Nokia and certainly not Verizon are going to announce a U.S. phone in London.

    May 14 is a date I've disputed since it was first speculated. It won't be there, it never was planned to be there, and it doesn't make sense to be there. Verizon announces and ships on Thursdays. Why, who knows? But they do. So given yesterday's website, and today's addition of the video, it will be announced tomorrow, and released either tomorrow or next Thursday, the 16th.

    As always, if I'm wrong, I'll eat a 16 ounce ribeye. Medium. If I'm right, though, I get that rack of baby back ribs.

    But, what if there is a global version....it would make sense to announce them all together. The amount of publicity going into this....nobody does that for a region exclusive. Yes, the one we have all seen leaked in documents is US exclusive...does NOT mean there isnt a world version. Nobody is disputing the Verizon version is US.....

    Global Lumia phones are typically xx0. They always end in zero. When they end in a different number they are typically carrier exclusive!

    He also said the 928 has an aluminum body. I don't buy it. Not going to put up a teaser for a phone that won't launch for another month.

    Honestly we can't tell from pictures. When the phone gets announced we will know for sure.

    I agree that the phone appears aluminum in the Nokia ads, but I would much rather prefer a Red Polycarbonate, or better yet, ORANGE!!!! My upgrade date is the 27th, so I'm fine with any release date this month, but I would love for it to release tomorrow so I can go drool at it in my local VZW store.

    Look at all the public photos officially from Nokia. The Verizon branding is nowhere to be found. However, the Phone tile on the home screen clearly says Verizon Wireless. That means that they did not remove the branding in the image to try and hide carrier information. There is a reason that the Verizon branding is missing in the images and my guess is that Verizon is not the only carrier with the rights to this handset.

    Yeah your not quite getting my point mate. 928 is for verizon. Done. But, what about this 925? We dont KNOW that its catwalk (ali phone leaked a month ago). It could be the global 928. Now if thats the case, it would make sense for Nokia to announce them all at once, a GLOBAL announcement. If Verizon do a small announcement on their own before the global announcement, all the media fire gets focused on that, and all the people reading the articles see "US Verizon phone". If its announced with the global, the world sees the phone is coming, and all the US people see that they are getting a 928 not a 925.

    I really cant make it clearer so I hope you finally understand my point this time :D

    Until May 14th perhaps? :P Or if they are being super awkward Verizon will announce it themselves after May 14th but that seems super strange. Even if the London event reveals something completely different, its going to be either on par or better than the 928.

    What really changes, we can already assume May 23rd, so that is the end of the month... Still announced tomorrow IMO. Unless someone like TC says otherwise...

    Nokia Lumia 928 Spotted at Private Nokia Concert

    All the commentary about this event has been about the video capabilities, but from the reports elsewhere with the specs of the mic suggest it will have distortion free recording up to 140db it seems this staged event will probably be showing off the low-light video [I]and[I] audio capabilities.

    I am coming from android and was already looking forward to this phone. If they have made the ultimate concert device that is even better. I'm not as familiar if the 920 has same tech in mic department if anyone can clarify. I read that the HTC One had some awesome mic technology they got from Nokia but now they have lost a court case and can only use the stock they have for the mic and will have to install a lesser mic once that runs out.
    I guess I was onto something. This just popped up on wmpoweruser

    Just my $.02, I agree that it would make sense to announce a global version in a 925 flavor and then announce the US variant 928, but the majority of the leaks have been about the 928 specifically. Verizon is known for butchering phone designs for their own purposes, and therefore a 925 that looks identical to a 928 with exception being the logo is unlikely, IMO.

    Good luck with that. Really. Hopefully you'll get a variant, but the 928 will be exclusive.

    Yeah.... Um... I know he gets some inside info, but I think he's off on this.

    I don't think so. I'm thinking announce tomorrow. They can't be having these sneak peeks from Nokia this far in advance, and expect it to keep momentum.
