    I think this device ends up like Lumia 900.

    It comes new and after 3 months Nokia announces new flagship with quad core and more ram , which would ship with 8.1 or whatever
    Nokia is announcing their new phone on May 14th. So 3 months isn't even right, more like 3 weeks.

    At best.

    So Verizon will be getting last year's phone as AT&T is beginning to talk about the new phone. Those of us that held out for Verizon will again contemplate AT&T or just being done with it and going to something cutting edge like the One.
    It's frustrating. I mean, WP8 doesn't need to be cutting edge, but it's annoying to always be far behind AT&T.

    On the plus side, no way can they charge $199 with something new around the corner for other providers.

    You make alot of assumptions about the 928...like it's going to basically be the 920. None of us have any idea. It might have as much wow factor as the catwalk or EOS.

    It's a fairly safe assumption. Using the rumor metric of the front page, let's say it's a 9. 8 at the worst.

    This is why Nokia only sold 400,000 devices in North America in the first quarter and why Windows phone doesn't get better traction.

    doubtful..like the judge said, we have been waiting for the high end lumia for six months. Now we find out it may be 7 or 8 months? I may wait until Christmas now and hopefully a phablet is out by then. Ok that was cynical, But still... I have a trophy on 7.5 ....7.5 and my screen is cracked.

    Another botched launch by Nokia and Verizon. They seem to be getting really good at blowing it with Windows Phone launches!

    Looks like I might more seriously contemplate the GS4 or roll to AT&T. Although, I want to be able to actually use my phone so leaning toward the GS4. Can't seem to understand why the Nations best carrier always seems to come in dead last in the latest tech.

    Well, the GS4 is pretty much guaranteed to sell 10x what the 928 is, if not more, so of course it gets more priority, and of course Verizon has to time to meet what other carriers say.
    The 928 would be totally lost if it was announced at the same day.

    Then again, it'll be almost as lost if it's announced at the same time as a next-gen Lumia.

    At this point, assuming it is a next-gen announcement on 5/14 and not just a tablet (would a tablet be a Lumia?) and assuming it is truly a reskinned and oddly taller 920 (seems very likely), then this product no longer seems to have a purpose.

    Yeah if there is nothing by 5/2 I am going to buy an 822 on 5/9 then return it within the 14 days if there is a 928 announcement.

    Can any Verizon employee explain to me why they can't confirm the device exists and leak the specs at this point?? They don't have to announce it or announce the release date. That would be acceptable to me and many others I believe. Just confirm it exists and at some point will be released.

    Because this is their policy. It's always been like this. I remember getting a Moto V710 (one of the top flip phones for the time) and it was like the same thing. Rumors all over the place but, Verizon would never confirm ANY PHONE (accept iPhone type releases) till their offical annoucement.

    You could call CS and you might get someone who will leak a little but, nothing offical....

    It's always been like that...

    PR and Comms have strategy. Wildly leaking information on forums during other big news cycles (GS4 and this Exclusive: Verizon eyes roughly $100 billion bid for Vodafone's wireless stake | Reuters) is typically not something a corporate comms/PR team would do. When the 928 hits, they want it to shine. Maybe it was going to hit today with the GS4, but they were worried the vodaphone news/GS4 news would bury any mentions of the 928. Yes, the WP nerds on forums (us) would preorder, but the average-joe consumer would probably not even know it existed.

    inb4 next response is "pullllleassssssse, give me phone!@?!#?!@ I DON'T GET IT!!! UNVEIL IT!!!!"

    Remember, they are doing this for a reason and we don't know what it is, so we have to sit back and wait.

    I get it. I understand it and realize the they have their strategy and plan for moving forward. I'm just frustrated that I don't have a new wp8 phone...like you said, all we can do is wait.

    And this is ultimately why I got sick of waiting a month ago and left for ATT. I'm starting to think the Nokia/Verizon deal is one epic troll by a select few to keep people on Verizon's network. At the very least, they seem to have botched another launch and are making people wait for phones that will be last generation by the time they rollout.

    agreed, if it's the same phone as the 920 (besides minor camera and flash updates) but, just in a new case, I will skip it too. Then again, I might wait a month or 2 and find one for 1/2 price on eBay or something but, will not buy it as new. I still have a major issue with the lack of space on my 8x, 32gb puts a Band-Aid on the problem but does not fix it. I do need some type of expandable storage but, we all know that..don't we ?

    Doesn't the 822 have expandable storage? Have you considered that?

    yep, 16gb and no HD display. The Trophy was a low end model, would not do a lower end model again, and the 822 falls into the lower end of the scale in my eyes.
