    Introducing: Nokia Lumia 928

    You’ve waited…you’ve been asking for it…here it is! We’re happy to introduce the Nokia Lumia 928, the newest expression of the world’s most innovative smartphone exclusively for Verizon Wireless.
    The Nokia Lumia 928 is the latest installment of the Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 line-up and comes equipped with everything you need to capture summer memories as they unfold.

    Imaging is king

    The Nokia Lumia 928 features Nokia’s powerful PureView imaging technology, including Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which makes it easy to capture blur-free pictures and videos every time, even in low-light. Along with OIS, the Nokia Lumia 928 features a Carl Zeiss lens – and photo buffs will love that a xenon flash is on board.

    With a camera like this on the Nokia Lumia 928, you can leave your digital SLR at home this summer as you head out and about.

    Make a lot of noise

    To go along with the stunning imaging capabilities of the Nokia Lumia 928, we’ve built in three high-audio-amplitude-capture microphones to make sure you can capture high-end, distortion-free audio even in the noisiest environments.

    It doesn’t matter if you’re at a monster truck rally, rock concert or summer party, you’ll have the best audio possible on a mobile with the Nokia Lumia 928 thanks to these high-performance microphones that record sound naturally and distortion-free, up to 140db.

    Stunning design

    This phone was built to perform, but it’s also is a joy to hold. The front of the Nokia Lumia 928 is dominated by a 4.5-inch OLED display covered by Gorilla Glass that extends all the way to the edge of the phone, bringing a quality feel. This phone is perfect for summer because the screen is easily readable, even in bright sunlight and the touchscreen works even if your fingertips are covered up.

    For added convenience, the Nokia Lumia 928 features wireless charging built-in. Simply place your phone on the Nokia Wireless Charging Pillow by Fatboy, JBL PlayUp or one of our other wireless charging accessories and power up.

    Nokia exclusive experiences built-in

    The software and services that make the Nokia Lumia unique are included out of the box with the Nokia Lumia 928. First of all, the HERE Suite brings intuitive location services that ensure you’re never lost or wondering what to do when in a new city. You can count on HERE Maps, HERE Drive+ and HERE City Lens to help you navigate your environment each and every day.

    Looking for some tunes to get your groove on? Nokia Music features unlimited streaming of free music playlists that you can even take offline.

    To extend the functionality of the Nokia Lumia 928, you can count on the 145,000 apps in the Windows Phone store. Getting things done on-the-go is easy with Internet Explorer 10 for faster, safer browsing and Microsoft Office mobile integration.

    We’re excited to bring these stunning features accompanied by Windows Phone 8 to Verizon’s ubiquitous 4G LTE network, the largest in the United States.

    The Nokia Lumia 928 will be available on May 16th at VerizonWireless.com and at your local Verizon Wireless Store. As a sweet bonus – for a limited time – buyers of the Nokia Lumia 928 will get a $25 credit for Windows Phone apps and games with the purchase of the phone.

    Stay tuned for more in-depth coverage on the Nokia Lumia 928. Follow Nokia US on Facebook and Twitter.
    Videos and pics will follow!

    Introducing the Nokia Lumia 928 - a new expression of the world's most innovative smartphone
    Exclusive to Verizon Wireless, newest Nokia Lumia flagship smartphone delivers amazing imaging, video and audio performance to capture and share moments like never before

    Sunnyvale, Calif., USA - Nokia today announced the Nokia Lumia 928 smartphone, the latest installment in Nokia's Windows Phone 8 lineup, exclusive to Verizon Wireless.

    With Nokia's award-winning PureView imaging innovation, including optical image stabilization, the Nokia Lumia 928 enables people to capture bright, blur-free photos and videos, even in low light conditions such as indoors or at night. Great looking images come easily when snapping them with the smartphone's 8.7MP camera featuring a high-quality, wide angle Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia Lumia 928 also comes with powerful Xenon flash to freeze the moment.

    In addition to amazing imaging and video capabilities, the Nokia Lumia 928 offers rich distortion-free audio capture, even in noisy conditions. Built with three high-audio-amplitude-capture (HAAC) microphones and one of the most advanced loudspeakers available for smartphones, people can record and play back the sound just like they first heard it, all the way up to 140db - the sound equivalent of an airplane taking off. These features shine when using Vyclone, a new app for Windows Phone that lets people co-create, sync and edit multiple views of a shared moment.

    "Whether you're attending a party, a concert or a sporting event with friends, the Nokia Lumia 928 excels at capturing high-quality video, audio and blur-free photos of life's most share-worthy moments," said Matt Rothschild, vice president, Nokia North America. "Verizon Wireless customers, we heard you and the wait is over - we're excited to offer a Nokia flagship smartphone, specially designed and optimized for the nation's largest 4G LTE network."

    At first touch, the Lumia 928 feels sleek, solid and fits perfectly in the hand. The stunning new smartphone introduces a 4.5" OLED display delivering crystal clear, bright content with great outdoor visibility and a fast, responsive touch-screen even when your fingertips are covered up. The glass extends to the very edge of the phone for a high-end feel.

    The Nokia Lumia 928 includes access to signature Lumia apps including the complete set of the feature-rich, intuitive and customizable HERE experiences. HERE Maps, HERE Drive+, HERE Transit** and HERE City Lens help people navigate their life every day. Using Nokia Music with Mix Radio, people can enjoy unlimited streaming of free music playlists with the option to create personal playlists and download for listening offline. Digital camera lenses and apps, including Smart Shoot, Cinemagraph, Panorama, and Photobeamer**, enable people to unleash their creativity.

    The Nokia Lumia 928 also comes with built-in wireless charging; just lay it down to power-up, it's that easy.

    Powered by Windows Phone 8
    Windows Phone 8 offers a truly personal smartphone experience, with an iconic Start screen that can be easily arranged to reflect individual priorities and animated Live Tiles for real-time updates on the people and things that matter most. With the same modern look and feel, Windows Phone 8 is built to work seamlessly with Windows PCs and tablets, Microsoft Surface devices and the Xbox 360 console so that files, music, pictures and videos can be accessed in whichever way is most convenient. The Windows Phone Store features more than 145,000 apps for customers to choose from, with hundreds added every day. Getting things done while on-the-go is easy with Internet Explorer 10 for faster, safer browsing and Microsoft Office Mobile integration.

    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

    If I buy the phone in Boston, can I return it in Philadelphia in case it's not a good fit for me?

    If you buy it from a Verizon Corporate store, you can return it to any Verizon corporate store. But they usually don't like you doing that...

    Still, they aren't supposed to say no.

    You can't return the device to a non Verizon corporate store. This includes many Premium Retailers and Authorized Dealers that use marketing to trick you in believing they are a corporate store.
