    So here's a question for you 928 owners. I understand that before the 928 was released, there were rumors about the 928 itself as well. How long before it debuted from the rumors, and was there a slip on a test website as well? I'm hoping that Verizon trends the same way like this on the 929/Icon coming out.
    I think there were months of torment as well.

    Oh yea, we all sat around here lamenting over how Verizon didn't love us and the executives had a not-so-secret desire to see WP fail because of the Kin device debacle, etc etc. We drooled over the pictures released on Twitter and debated the rumored metal body vs polycarbonate body and how could it have built in qi charging if it was metal (we now know the metal body rumors became the 925).

    Good times and I've been drawing a lot of parallels now between the 928 and the 929/Icon development and release. "When it's ready" seems to be the unsatisfactory answer we get with Verizon on these things.

    Initially I said I would not get this phone, waiting for the 1020 variant. But with no rumors of 41 MP coming to Verizon, I'm starting to have second thoughts on that. I still don't like the LED flash, when I already have xenon on my 928, but I want the bigger camera. At this point I'd say that I don't know if I'll get it or not, but if I do, it likely won't be on launch day. I really want the 41 MP, and I don't want to give up the xenon flash.... Come on, Verizon! Give us what we're asking for!

    Over in the 929 forum someone says he runs a corporate Verizon store and received a shipment of accessories, and that he typically sees that within about two weeks of launch.

    Same her but I picked up the 822. Chose the 822 over the 928 because I knew when the 929 comes out I'm going to get one so it seemed like it would feel like more of an upgrade coming from the 822 than the 928.
    Did the same thing in December!

    But I will go to 929, if for the bigger screen & better camera.

    Assuming I'm remembering right, you already have bigger cameras though, don't you?

    Seriously though. Just give us something fully loaded, even if it is a bit of niche product. Let the 929 be the mainline flagship level phone, but give us the *option* to have one with everything. The big camera. Xenon. FM for Dave in CT. MicroSD slot for those RAW shots. A big battery. A very nice screen, nothing outrageous size wise (so 4.5-5" I think would be fine). Good sound capabilities. Large battery. The camera grip, refined (maybe add a standard attachment bracket/ring/whatever that can carryover to other grips). Give it to ussssssssss....

    How about the auto coffee dispenser. I would love to remote my coffee pot. Of course I am still trying to figure out how to remote fill the filter and coffee into the pot.

    If by "bigger cameras" you're talking DSLR, yes. I have a Canon EOS 50D and several very good quality lenses. But since the 41MP camera on a phone is out there, I want it.

    Yes, Xenon, 41 MP, FM, SD, battery, screen (personally, I like the 4.5" range, I don't think I'd want bigger than 5"), the speaker that the 928 has (or better ), camera grip...... WE WANT IT ALL!

    Personally, I hate the exclusive/carrier thing, as it severely restricts the number of available accessories we have to choose from.

    I'm not sure if I'd want to jump. I mean my 928 has held up nicely since June and my only issue with it is that I keep filling it with music, deleting an app here or there or even a game. I would probably be one of those users who want support for 128gb microsd cards, due to my music library. I've got some photos on it's the best point and shoot camera and the best arguably in night scenes. The built-in (no replacement shell here!) wireless charging is a feature I can't let go now. I bought two of the charging plates for $12.50 each and the nokia car dock for $79. The battery is just solid, and the only beef with the device is the speaker only plays the left channel audio instead of downmixing stereo, so some tracks sound odd.

    On the other hand, I'd love a 1080p WP for watching movies (on long car rides.) The size seems right on the Icon, just a bit larger than the 928, but smaller than the 1520. When the Icon releases, I'll just have to see how really tiny my Trophy is in comparison.

    I'd like to have FM too, but its not that necessary... Well, if I needed, it would have to have HD Radio in it. But, its kinda dead for anything but car stereos and home av receivers. The worst part is that it will never have complete market penetration due to the HD Radio codec being a trade secret and being a US only thing... Here's to hoping for a spiritual successor to the Zune HD.

    I'm an 822 owner and I'm just wondering if and when the 929 will launch? Anyone heard anything new, because it is not on Verizon's site.

    Sit tight, we're all hoping for a January release based on some positive things that Verizon and Microsoft store employees have said. Every Thursday is a tense day around these parts.
