    Tom warren reported on twitter an hour ago its being delayed until later this month...
    It's clear the phone has been delayed to some extent due to the print leaks (billboard and magazine.) That is NOT a marketing strategy. If they wanted to tease the phone, they'd do it digitally, which they are doing with the release of those YT videos. Magazines can print as early as a month before they are in mailboxes or on newstands, which is why we saw the magazine pop up. The phone was likely delayed a few weeks ago, and the magazine already printed. I do marketing for a consumer-oriented company and have had the exact same thing happen to me. A product was killed last minute, but it was too late to get it out of a few print placements.

    There is 100% no way they'd have the print pieces show up before the phone was announced. The only question is how far was it delayed. I have heard it was delayed more than once from a trusted source, so Tom Warren could be correct.

    Well, hopefully what Tom meant by "later" was "tomorrow" !

    The newer pictures do NOT look like the shell is aluminum. Looks like Polycarbonate to me. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    For what it's worth, I got a phone call from our Verizon corporate rep today. He knew I was waiting on the 928 and he said he just got an internal e-mail across his computer this afternoon that said Verizon will have the phone for sale beginning May 16th. He didn't know if pre-orders would be available or not and he didn't have final confirmation on colors as of this afternoon.

    I thought aluminum body was just the 925 not the 928?

    Agreed. Think we can pretty much put the metal thing to bed now.

    If a red 928 was available on Day 1 then that would be a no-brainer for me. If not then will have to settle for a white one. If a red one comes out later may have to pay full retail and sell the white one. I need some rainbow swag :)

    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.
    the Verizon 8X, S3, Note 2, iPhone 5, and Optimus Vu were all so much different than their global counterparts. And don't forget how the Razr M is totally butchered compared to the Razr I

    Doesn't look like proof of anything, to me.

    If anything its proof it is for Verizon. Verizon clearly had planned for this phone to release already. The print add would never have leaked with a Verizon logo if it hadnt been delayed and surely not with the logo if it wasn't exclusive. I would wager they took the logo off, because Verizon has not announced the phone yet. But, that doesn't rule out that another carrier did pick it up. I bet when it is announced, the Nokia website will rebrand it with a Verizon logo

    Another traditional intro day for new equippment on Verizon and no 928. I had set aside money to buy off contract back in April when the Thursday Mambo started. At the same time, I started following a Tag watch that was offered at about the same price.

    This morning; no 928; bid closed at noon MST so I bought the Tag. Really got tired of all the hot air rumours. Now, will keep my 822 for a while longer. Really wanted to be one of the first 928 owner; just ain't going to happen,
    Dude, I hope you're not blaming anyone for your impatience. How long have you owned a cell phone or have been active in the community? It doesn't matter which phone, platform or carrier....all you are going to see are hot air rumors, speculation and more rumors all the way up to a phone announcement/release. It's just the way it is and the way it's always been. Enjoy the watch.

    Those ads wouldn't have been published without legal approval from Verizon. Branding removal doesn't mean anything other than maybe VZW wanting to control the announcement.

    My theory is that there's a global version of the 928 and both will be announced the 14th.

    Anybody notice that the app bar has disappeared from the screenshots on Nokia's page? Like in the camera view, there is no app bar, just floating buttons! This a GDR2 thing? Or just lazy mockups?

    Nokia should have placed its mini USB port on bottom instead of top. It cannot be connected with a DOCK connector

    I agree, but I have to guess that they are going to go for no need to use the connector in a device, choosing instead to go for devices that use qi and BT.

    I hope so, rumors of them ditching built in Qi to slim devices made me sad :(

    With Verizon's support for Wireless charging, I dont think you have anything to worry about for the 928...

    I was thinking more for the global version. This is starting to look more and more like catwalk now TC told us its not made of polycarb.

    I just came over here to post this. I'm really hoping they announce it on Tuesday and we can pick it up on the 16th.
