    If it's not officially announce it by the end of the week i don't see how they could have it in stores and in our hands before the end of the month.

    Trophy was announced 5/19/2011 and released on 5/26/2011, so it wouldn't have to be announced by the end of this week in order to make end of month release.

    I guess anything here is subject to change... Let's not guess, till Verizon or Nokia finally release the specs.

    If this does not have a MicroSD slot, I will be very disappointed, I have been looking for a high end WP device on Verizon and finally it comes but, with a major limit of space.

    Does anyone care to speculate on the chances Verizon will sell it for $450 off contract like AT&T does for the 920? I don't think it will happen, but I'm trying to be optimistic.

    I believe the Verge posted a while back that the rumor was $550 off contract.

    Given that it looks like it's going to be the same as the 920 except for the flash I would think it would be $99.

    $99 sounds right to me. Verizon won't give the phone away as cheap as at&t did in the beginning but $199 sounds high to me.

    Verizon sold the 8x $100 more because it had qi charging. I feel the same is going to happen this time cause of xenon.
    I'm willing to bet $199 price tag.

    i dont think so.. the hardware is 6 months old
    xenon flash means very little to a lot of people.. i dont think thats as big of a selling point to the avg consumer as it is to us

    totally agree. They will sell at $199 to start regardless of the specs being old. Hopefully, Verizon is smart and lists it at $99 to "steal" people away from gs4. They are going to be selling at the same time. Other than fanboys, I doubt our normal droid-sheep's and i-sheep's users will buy the 928 @199 vs an i-phone5, gs4, or even the htc1 at that compared price. Two much competition. It will be disappointing if it releases at $199. I'll buy it either way, but Nokia is a "new" brand to Verizon. They really can't afford to sell it higher, because I honestly think it could lose if they do. They really need to dangle the carrot for new wp8 customers...imo.

    Can't wait for the specs. If the 928 doesn't have an sd slot I've decided I'm getting the Z10 instead. My girlfriend has the Z10 and it's nice. Weird at first but grows on ya.

    If it's $199 and the specs are the same as a 920 I'm not buying. You can get a 920 on Amazon for $19.99.

    Not on Verizon. That's the leverage they have, that's the leverage they'll use.

    I'm thinking 150 after a 50 rebate and it absolutely will not come with a free wireless charger.

    I hope it launches at $99, the 8X drops to $49 and the Odyssey and 822 go to free. That would be a kick *** line up.

    If it launches at $199, I'll just have to hold off. I want either the Z10 or the 928 so I'll wait and buy whichever drops in price first.

    $200 will be too much.

    I guess it all depends on the profit margin on Verizon's end. The might test the water.. price both the gs4 and the 928 @ $200 for couple of months and see how they do. If the 928 sells more (and I am sure Nokia is charging less for the 928 than Sammy for the gs4) then, good business. If not, go back down to $100.. where it should be anyway.

    If you don;t value pictures/video (or ecosystem), go for it. I was not impressed with the Z10 at all when I tried it.

    If I get the 928 it will be off contract, so I hope it's not $600 or I'll roll with the 8X for a while.
