    The closer to the S4 they release this thing, the more DOA it becomes. I'm already not thrilled with only getting a rehashed 920, but this waiting thing is ridiculous.

    All signs point to this not being a rehashed 920...same processor yes, but add a real xenon flash, AMOLED display, thinner/lighter, + who knows what else is included as Nokia has not announced all the specs. Patience people....

    Actually one of the rumors said a newer CPU. What do we actually know ?

    We know what type of display it will have and that it is a 4.5" (due to the replacement part) and some images (that are subject to change) of the case

    What else do we really know ? Nothing at all, every other thing is rumor, think about it. This could be the first quad core CPU or it could be the same CPU as the 920, no one who can say anything knows (VZW employee under NDA).

    Besides the display, everything else is just a guess....crap, sites are still saying it has a metal case!!!!

    $799.99?!?!? Pass. Unless I can control this thing with brainwaves, I a going to wait. Couple that with the fact that NO ONE else has any info about this, this is squirrley to me.

    Another botched launch by Nokia and Verizon. They seem to be getting really good at blowing it with Windows Phone launches!
    considering the fact that neither Nokia or Verizon even acknowledge the existing of 928 idk how they can "blow it" plus the 25th was a rumored date by an alleged employee of Verizon in the forums here.

    Excellent points, although I believe the dimensions were part of the FCC filing (correct me if I am wrong). The plastic case seems to match up with the black and white leaked renderings, but because no one who is talking has one in their possession we will have to wait for confirmation.

    Doesn't the 822 have expandable storage? Have you considered that?
    I think I might just do this. It's free.

    You can get used on on ebay from $150-250... with no contract, so if you have unlimited data, you can keep it. I saw a used, in great shape with no charger buy-it-now for $169.99..

    if you still have unlimited data, then it's worth it to keep it...

    I don't have unlimited data. I always used to refuse to pay for a phone and this seems like a good one for free. Wife got one last night, so I might see how it is for a little before I commit.

    Your also the one who said, 32gb and a MicroSD slot and claimed to see a document. What do you know ?

    To each their own, if your not going to pay for a phone and expect one free, not sure why your even looking at the 928, as it will never been a free phone at least anytime soon or unless it's 8-12 months down the line (when being EOL, as 8.5/9 devices rumored). At least if you pick up the 822 off contract, you leave your option open IF you want to get the 928.

    However, just a suggestion...

    Excellent points, although I believe the dimensions were part of the FCC filing (correct me if I am wrong). The plastic case seems to match up with the black and white leaked renderings, but because no one who is talking has one in their possession we will have to wait for confirmation.
    Remember, those images where that, "renderings". They could of been images someone created based on the FCC document and the touch screen. They could be early images that was given to verizon before they finaized it. They do not show ports, they do not show if the back cover is removable, they really dont give much but an idea on what they look like based on the facts we all know and saw, kind of filling in the blanks, so to speak. If they were a picture that somone took, I would feel different on it but, they are not.

    Fact of the matter is, we dont know crap about this phone yet besides the screen and estimated hardware... Only real way we can confirm that A Nokia 928 exists is by the replacement display, othewise just rumor, some people confirmed there was a 928 and by the FCC docs, it was going to Verizon (because of it's supported freq) but, nothing more.

    Still waiting for that high end Windows Phone 8 device on Verizon....waiting....waiting...still waiting...

    So far, this whole Lumia 928 has been a disappointment. With rumors keep popping up about that EOS Lumia phone, I hope that Nokia will not do it as an exclusive to AT&T again. My contract has been up for over 8 months now on Verizon. I really want an amazing phone on the best carrier. The leaked pictures of the 928 looks very nice. My question, what new features will it bring? Will it have Gorilla Glass 3, like the GS4 has?

    I have seen the GS4 new features. Some are pretty cool. Granted, it does not look as durable as the Lumia 920 is, but it is packed with tons of features. All I can say, Nokia better bring it soon.

    No, Verizon never releases anything on weekends... I think the next chance we get to hear about it is next Thursday. The pattern for Verizon is they do announcements on Thursday, at least it was confirmed here by a few people... As for release times, not exactly sure..

    Thursday seems like a good bet even though last Thursday did too. Last week was the preorder for the Samsung. This phone will allegedly come out before that phone so two weeks from now seems too close to that. One of these Thursdays we will finally get what we are craving!

    I didn't expect the 928 free. I was just saying I never paid for a phone before the trophy, so I will just go back to the free phone. I ordered the 822.

    Well, I can't really say if I'm excited or not because I have the nokia lumia 920 already. I'm hoping the 928 is basically the same phone if not then I might kill myself lol. I'm happy that other companies can finally experience the Lumia 920 series for themselves and give Nokia an extra boost in sales, but I still want to feel like the superior costumer because I got my lumia when it first came out lol. Hope you guys like the new phone, I know I do!!!

    Lol. I bought 920 last week. I am not sorry because I didn't like 928's look so I bought 920. We only need more apps, not better hardware :D

    I'm going to lean with some others around here and say it is probably going to be May 9th rather than tomorrow. Tomorrow would make me very happy, but I think the 9th is more likely.
