    I'd wager that there will be no colors for this device, with the exception of MAYBE a limited edition Red.

    Verizon's entire lineup of phones are primarily Black; there are a few White devices, and they may have made an exception with the 8X given that California Blue was HTC's signature device. I think the 822 and 8X was in Red, but they were limited editions, for a limited time only.

    If you want the 928 now, AND color, I think you are simply going to have to purchase a case. Even though Nokia has been known, for years, for making devices with various colors, Verizon has the 'corporate folk' mentality; so fun, playful, vibrant colors in their lineup just ain't gonna happen!
    cyan and red are confirmed. Just gotta get dates b

    how likely do you think the cyan will be an employee special edition only and not available to the public? definitely safe to say red will be offered to the public as a limited edition at some point as red IS Verizon, just curious if you think the cyan will be offered to the public as well. a friend of mine really really wants the cyan and i'm leaning towards the red.

    everyone says get black one with a color case. I say no thanks lol. why get a nice looking phone to cover it with a case that completely takes away from the design of the phone? I go case-less unless i'm somewhere I know I can damage it and i just get the insurance.

    Nothing is 100%. The cyan and red are listed with the public stuff, so cyan will probably be available at some point as well.

    Normally if it's an employee edition, its some crazy color stuff. Like how the Razrs have the checkered red and black Kevlar, or how the 8X is gray with limelight accents.

    So are we thinking something like a Memorial Day (May 27th) or 4th of July special with both Cyan & Red? Then they could kinda play on the red, white, & blue (Cyan), thing? Heck, forget cyan. Give me some sort of navy blue shade and i'll be happy.

    What is the return policy on Verizon devices? I feel like I've heard 15 days and then other times I feel like I've heard 45 days. If it is 45 days and the other colors do come out around Father's day that's only 30 days after the initial release. Would it be possible to walk into a Verizon store and exchnage a Black 928 or White 928 for a Cyan 928 or Red 928? I'm not sure after having the device for a month I'd care much about color anymore, but I just wonder since some of us have been disappointed by the lack of choices.

    If the red and cyan are supposed to release on a holiday, like the Red Lumia 822 for Valentines Day, I would predict them to be released aroud Fathers Day or July 4th at the latest

    It's hard to tell. It's the same date listed for the black and white. I'm guessing that's the date VZW started testing?

    Not to beat a dead horse and seeing that I haven't seen anyone ask Nokia, I tweeted NokiaUS to see if there would be any other colors. I figured they would say no since they're trying to push what they have released now....but my question to the vzw connected people, have they ever canceled a phone even though it's shown up earlier in your inventory? Here's my tweets with them:

    • @NokiaUS Will you be releasing (or at liberty to say) if the 928 will be released in different colors other than black & white?
    • @ericbs only white and black. -Jason

    while at the store with my brother and sister getting them their 928 upgrades, i asked the sales guys there "any info about the red and cyan phones yet?" and they responded "nope not yet." i guess that can be taken in one of a million different ways, but they didn't deny them i guess. i gave my sister my upgrade so i have to wait till the end of next month to get the next upgrade in the family plan anyway. maybe a little more light will be shed on the subject by then.

    Don't go to the store and play with the 928. My g/f said the same thing, she likes her trophy and has not problems with it. Didn't want to upgrade right away. We went to the store played with the 928, and it becomes I want that phone. She ended up ordering a black 928.

    haha i've unfortunately played with both my brother's 928, sister's 928, my dad's 822, and the display models at my local store of all the newer WP8s. the hype was killing me at first, and still is to some extent, but i gave my sister my upgrade so that will help me last until at least the end of june for the next upgrade in the family line to become available. so i have until at least then before the excitement of upgrading tempts me to settle for a black model instead of waiting for the other colors. the temptation... haha hopefully from now until then maybe some new info about the other colors will come to light.

    I'm ready to order but was really hoping for red. Anyone have new info? I know a case would work, but I don't want a case. I'll wait if I can figure out it will only be a few weeks, but otherwise I'm not waiting. I need to ditch my TP2! LOL

    Agreed! Or, depending on the reason for suffering through it, a mark of shame! I mean, if you couldn't afford it or something like that, fine - but if you CHOSE to keep a TP2..........
