    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.
    Silly business plan. Those colours are what get Nokia phones the publicity. Here in the UK, everyone I know that owns a Nokia bought black/white. But they got interested because of the colours.

    I can promised you it will surpass any expectations you might have from a phone. Limited quantity guys so don't wait.
    Thanks for an update! You have me excited about it. Are you saying there is some new camera feature? Is it still 32GB? Understand if you can't answer yet.

    well this sucks. i know quite a few people who have been waiting all this time and DO NOT want a damn bland and boring typical black or white phone. why can they not just effing release the multiple color options at launch? i dont want a black or white one either. gah...this later date better be no more than a few weeks post launch with pre orders available for whatever colors will be offered while the black and white are available. thanks for the updates.

    what your saying is Verizon doesn't want to sell this phone for two to three months, because they won't. Terrible strategy. TERRIBLE STRATEGY. You can't even call that a marketing plan, because it's LUNACY.

    Assuming the phones are essentially the same, those who are willing and able can always go to AT&T. They have all the colors and it's $0 upfront right now.

    If we were able to just go to at&t we would have six months ago. We all have reasons why Verizon is our only option.

    i could if i really wanted to, but i have no desire to switch carriers. have never had any issues with my verizon service and so far from these renders i think i prefer the physical design of the 928 over the 920. just seems ridiculous that they can't offer multiple colors of the exact same phone at launch.

    I am actually in the same boat as you. I could switch if I wanted to but I have never had an issue with Verizon and I don't think this is reason enough to switch.

    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.
    ..
    at least didn't feel like my 920 or 822. So I'm assuming it isn't polycarbonate

    For everyone that's complaining about the colors. Would you rather have the options from day one but the colors be out of stock for months? Or would you rather wait and actually be able to buy it. Even in the case of 822 red and grey sold about 5% of the entire 822 inventory. There is no tell how 928 is gonna do until the standard colors are out and Verizon / Nokia can monitor sales. I don't understand why people can't wait if they want more color options?

    Because we want the phone last week! You say that red and grey sold about 5%, but consider that red wasn't available until 3 months in, and grey wasn't readily available right away. If so, I'm betting they'd have sold more of both.

    phone is going for $99 you should thank Nokia get a white one show it off. Plus I think Nokia will give you a gift card too.

    The article doesn't mention a nokia gift card - unless that's the $25 Windows Phone Store credit.

    Here is my logic (posted on the "Nokia Official Announcement" thread)

    Well, when looking at it from the front, I can't see color, so does it matter to me if I get it in any color other than my preference of red? Another question I have ask is, since I can't see the color while interacting with it, to who's benefit will it be to have it in red? Obviously not me. I can't see any color. So I think I'll just get it at launch and in white... or is it my impatience talking? LOL

    This is the 928


    This is the 920.

    I can't see any color when I look straight at the 928.

    Not a silly biz plan at all. They want to maximize their story because they probably won't have a new top tier WP for a while, but if down the road they can refresh the story with new colors, they will. Annoying to those who want it now, but it's smart.

    the nokia conversations site mentions the $25 windows phone credit... as well as the $50 mail in rebate.
    Introducing: Nokia Lumia 928
    $100 for this is a VERY good price...and sets another benchmark for the android crowds and iPhone

    Exactly.... man people, chill out. I wanted Red, but will get white... really could careless being I need a new phone badly. If you can wait for Red, Pink, Aqua, Yellow, Florescent Green and Purple then wait...

    Just took a look at the press pdf and it states polycarbonate, so just thinner I guess?

    whats really funny this time is that Nokia has announced and will release a phone in a shorter time that Samsung with the S4 (for verizon) and technically in a shorter time than any other S4 for other other carrier too... one week lag....
