    I hope, and I am very weary about this, that Verizon has seen Nokia's plans for their next devices (post 929) and Verizon told them to scrap the 929 and just be ready in the spring to launch the big daddy of all Windows Phones (1820). I know that doesn't sound promising, but if the 929 comes out you can bet your sweet *** that we are not seeing another flagship windows phone on Verizon until Fall 2014.
    Wait a second, you want Verizon to dump a phone that has been designed, engineered, mass produced, has web pages designed, and has dummy display models in some stores? All to hurry up another phone (1820), that with the exception of one unreliable tweet, shows no evidence of existing at all? Not to mention that Verizon might not get that non-existant phone in the first place?

    Seems like a lot to hope for if you ask me.

    any word on the Icon release?
    Feb 13th seems the logical release date. but at this point I'll know probably only few hours before the world knows

    As crazy as somebody in September would have sounded saying that we won't hear anything official about the 929 until February?

    So are you saying we won't hear anything official about the hypothetical 1820 until August? (probably longer, we at least had pictures of the 929 in September, compared to having nothing about the 1820 right now)

    There was a photo of the 1820 back in November:

    What about this aren't you getting? That photo looks like it was done in MS Paint. There is no 1820 right now. Nokia's next flagship isn't coming until mid-late summer and it's most likely not coming straight to Verizon.

    Daniel Rubino last time you posted some crappy article from TechRadar. http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...tm#post2323316

    I find it very unlikely Nokia/Microsoft will announce new hardware before detailing the OS in full at Build. I do not expect new WP 8.1 devices before June.

    Just look at the past: new flagship devices from Nokia get announced at special, one-off press events, usually in NYC for AT&T first (Abu Dhabi was a change).

    Windows Phone 8 was shown in June at a special WP event in SF. No new hardware was announced, not until months later (Lumia 920).
    I'll take the word, info, and speculation of Daniel Rubino over every website out there. You'd be wise to do the same. From the Editor€™s Desk €“ Why don€™t you report on fake news? | Windows Phone Central

    Speaking of, other crap rumors include:
    •BBM for Windows Phone submitted to the Store and their Twitter account
    •“Lumia 1820”, whatever that is (being announced at Mobile World Congress)
    •“Lumia 1520v”, whatever that is (being announced at Mobile World Congress)

    There’s just no truth to those, sorry.

    They announced the 928 on a Friday and put it up for sale the Thursday after. The week isn't over yet......

    Wow?!?!

    I respect Daniel, and his opinions, but he not omniscient.

    I equally respect TechRadar. They are part of Future, and they are not "some crappy" source, as you claim:

    When it comes to WP8 news and speculation, TechRadar has shown that they are everything but reliable. Oh well, maybe you'll realize that when MWC rolls through and there isn't any 1820 or any other Nokia/Microsoft WP8 device.

    Maybe ... or maybe not?

    Today, Nokia invited Developers to MWC "to try out Nokia’s newest devices":

    Right. I'm thinking they mean the Nokia Lumia 2520, 1520, 1320, 1020, 929, etc. Maybe Nokia Normandy.

    I do wonder what this is "Dont miss the Nokia Imaging surprise on Wednesday." Should be pretty cool, hopefully new imaging software rolled out with 8.1.

    I am DEFINATELY getting this Phone. Would love to know who started the February 5th release date rumor. I'm starting to get disappointed. Stop it already.

    Been a VZW customer since 2009, but I have started to eyeball the ATT menu of new Windows phones.

    Valentines day is on Feb 14th. We release new devices on Thursdays hence the 13th would have been a logical date to pick. However my department was told not to expect any new devices until the second week of March.

    Do you think the new Samsung WP will beat the Icon to market?
