    yea he said something a few posts up that based on the dates shown in the screenshot that he was able to tell it was a credible screenshot and we could expect the 16th to be the date. one guy asked him how he was able to tell because the screenshot only shows dates in january and product names/colors and was curious how he was able to come to these conclusions based on the screenshot alone.

    I talked to our Verizon rep yesterday and he said he got an internal e-mail yesterday saying that the phone will be available for purchase on May 16th from Verizon. He knew I had been waiting for the phone to arrive, so he called me with this info as soon as he got the e-mail. Prior to that e-mail arriving, he told me it would likely be released within 90 days since there was so much chatter in the office.

    If that is correct they will either announce it today or announce and release on the 16th.

    so the time frame shrunk from 3 months down to a week once he received that email?

    Well, yes. He didn't have any solid timeline before the e-mail. Like most of the Verizon employees, they just had no idea. All he had heard until yesterday was talk about the phone. As a result of the chatter, he said phones generally come out within 90 days. But then, he received the e-mail confirming the availability date.

    He said he didn't yet have any information on possible pre-order availability yet, though. If I find out before the mainstream, I'll let you know.

    No TCMan and no HonestAbe yet.. so the wait continues. Atleast we know that it will be ready for purchase on May 16 and it has 15 days to shine. We don't know it may shine longer too if Verizon does the push..

    yea you never know. word of mouth can be viral. i mean, just from me telling a few friends and family about it they too are waiting for it to come out to use an upgrade. if the same pattern followed and each of them showed a few friends or family, and those people showed a few people, etc., etc., it could surprisingly catch on and be a hit, especially if it's an attractive piece of hardware since the mass consumer can be pretty easily appealed to in that sense (as long as it works and looks nice).

    Exactly. No one expected 822 to sell so much as it is not the top end. But it did sell reasonably. LEt us hope this phone get its share of followers before the next new thing comes up. I think Nokia might launch it on May 14th along with catwalk so that the news can reach a bigger audience. like all tech sites all over the world will cover it.

    Yeah, I think making the 822 free certainly helped a bit, along with the exclusive red and grey color options...I guess that's probably what Verizon/nokia should focus on for the 928. Good pricing and color options.

    Dying to finally see an official release date! I'm moving from a company blackberry to either an Android or 928 being that I'm stuck with Verizon. The S4 looks like a decent piece of equipment but I like the ATIV 700T tablet I have with Win 8 and am willing to give WP8 a try to utilize the MS ecosystem. I'm tired of waiting though.....

    I think if the HTC One was out for Verizon I wouldn't have been able to be patient and would have already gone Android.

    I'd take the DNA over the S4 any day. Only reason to buy the S4 over it is the SD card (nothing to me)

    Edit: And the camera. Which I obviously care so little about I didn't even mention it.

    yes. Phone will be announced next week guys! There is an obvious reason why imaging capabilities will be the forefront of 928 advertising campaign Phones is lighter compared to 920 and it's not polycarbonate plastic. I honestly think it shouldn't be called 928. I've noticed that there was a SD card option under settings with no card found. I couldn't figured out for the life of me where the SD card slot would be. Maybe the demo had a modified O.S.? Verizon is expected windows phone will reach 15% of its inventory. Right now WP are about 5%. Considering I have the L822, L922, Z10, iPhone 5 and galaxy s4. I can promised you it will surpass any expectations you might have from a phone. Limited quantity guys so don't wait.

    TC just said it's not poly carbonate and that it will come in black and white at launch with other colors to come later.

    He said it isn't polycarbonate, which does not rule out ABS co-polymer or some other plastic. There are hundreds if not thousands of commercially available plastics that could be used for a phone.

    Boo, I want red! I'm dying waiting for it to release as it is, why in the world are they going to release with black and white only? It's like Verizon wants to torture me. Seeing as they are the only carrier with reliable coverage where I live they know they can.

    If Verizon doesn't have other colors regularly available...then they are idiots. Did the red 822 not teach them anything? I would have a red 822 right now if they hadn't gone away (probably a blessing in disguise as I continue to use my white one and see the 928 coming). Those nitwits in corporate need to be hit over the head with a giant clue stick. Feel free to pass this comment up the chain. I can guarantee you that I'm not the only one who thinks this.

    Verizon doesn't want to shoot their wad all at once. The limited edition colors (cyan, red, maybe gray ?) will be their to juice up sales in 2-3 months.

    If Verizon doesn't have other colors regularly available...then they are idiots. Did the red 822 not teach them anything? I would have a red 822 right now if they hadn't gone away (probably a blessing in disguise as I continue to use my white one and see the 928 coming).
