    i thought all microsoft employees were supposed to get L920? you werent there yet that time? =)
    Actually, we got reimbursed for whatever we wanted that was available at the time. Some picked 920, others 8X, 820, etc.

    If he just started, then yeah he's past that cutoff...welcome aboard though!

    Played with a 928 at the store today. Feels great in the hand - white looks better in person than photos, that's gonna be a tough call. Feels solid as anything, like a piece of lacquered glass. Very nice high build quality. Screen is typical nice AMOLED, everything seemed quite nice. ISO controls are very appreciated and indoor no-flash shots at ISO100 in the store seemed pretty clean and relatively noise-free. Video was superb. Gonna pick one up manana, just gotta choose a color.

    I'm going to get my 928 from the Microsoft store. One is being held for me, so I'll be there 10am tomorrow. The Microsoft store where I am has a deal going on. If you trade a cell phone when you purchase the 928, they apply the amount your phone is worth to the new phone purchase. I'm gettting sixty-something for my Trophy...plus a fifty dollar trade in bonus. If the Microsoft store goes with the pricing of Verizon, that means I'll have at least $110 toward the $150 phone (two year contract). I do have a $50 Microsoft store gift card too.
    keep us posted on the retail price at the Microsoft store ill have to c if we have a Microsoft store somewhere in Chicago if they give u $110 I might try that too of course full retail price...but why are u saying $150? the phone is $99 on a 2 year contract

    $99 on 2 year contract is AFTER a $50 mail in rebate. It's going to cost you $150 to walk out with a phone, plus the $30 upgrade fee (I think that can go on the bill, though).

    I've ordered mine online for $99 and it is now ready to be picked up at the Verizon store down the road. I will get it at lunch! My daughter is thrilled since she gets my HTC 8X and it's her first phone.

    I assume everyone is too busy to write a review. :) Congrats to those who got one.

    I went into my local VZ store and the 928 had a promenient display by the door along side the 8X and ATIV Odyssey. No black 928s in the store, only the white and I asked about the $25 credit and no-commit pricing. The lady seemed knowledgeable about WP8 and there was only another customer there who seem to frequent these forums. :)

    UPDATE!!!
    How do you get a brand new 928 with no out of pocket expense with a new two year contract. This is how.
    I just picked up mine from a Microsoft Store. They have the trade in your old phone program. I traded my Trophy and got $64 dollars for it. The trade you old phone program also comes an additional $50 bonus. So, the $99 dollar phone, minus the $64, minues the $50....gave me a gift card at the Microsoft store for $10.77.
    The white 929 is much better in person.

    Dude, I completely agree with you, the white looks SOOO much better in person! I was pretty much 100% going to get the black until the Microsoft store lady pulled out a white 928 from her pocked to let me play with. I immediately fell in love and made up my mind on the spot. I am going to have it in a couple hours.

    I would go white bro!

    Just got done playing with a white one at the Verizon store. It's the most beautiful device I've ever seen. It really is something else.

    Going to pick mine up in a few hours.

    Got it! I'm actually content with the white, I feel like the white will make it appear much slimmer than the black. I'm happy!

    I showed up at my local Verizon store just after they opened this morning. I looked around but couldn't find the 928 so I asked a rep about it. All of the CSRs there had no idea that the phone released today and had to check their computers to verify that I was correct. They realized that they had gotten in 5 white phones and no black. There wasn't any bit of a display for the phone but hopefully that will change once more phones make it into the sales channels. While I had had my mind set on getting a black 928, I was impatient and went with the white. So far I'm really liking the phone and it feels good to be back with Windows Phone.

    JUST GOT MINE FROM THE VZW STORE!!! SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! I'VE BEEN WAITING OVER A YEAR TO UPGRADE AND WOW!!!!!

    ds;ljkfm;d ;ldip[nkl;gs

    Sorry... drooled on he KB a little. I picked up the wireless charger and will be mounting it under my desktop while my staff are at lunch. I plan on drawing a circle with a marker with a lightning bolt and say "With any marker I can draw these signs and the phone will know to pull a trickle charge from things that are grounded." (It's happily wirelessly charging right now actually)

    I've been waiting for this phone for SOOO long!!! It's truly beautiful!!! It's alot lighter than a friend's 920. I'd say close to the Trophy. It was kinda funny, people were looking at me as I was standing there getting the phone and people were like "What's that? Is that the new iPhone? I showed a little demo of how smooth and buttery it is and people were like, oooo...." I then showed them the Live Tiles and how I can pin a contact to the home screen, resize it and all that. Then I realzed I was a the store for close to 2 hours and I had some meetings to get back to the office for. As I was leaving, I heard some people ask to look at the 928 as well. ;-)

    I got the white with white charger.
