    I need the specs of the (rumored) 1520 to jump into this device. Already have my upgrade path figured out (co-worker wants my 928) but if it doesn't have the 2 GB RAM, SD800 processor... So on.

    Eh, I would to have see what tangible benefits it gives. 1080p on a screen this small to me isn't going to make a difference to me. Same with more cores...it's only actively working on one app at a time. Camera will be better, but complete change in the way you view things like the 1020? Bigger battery will be taxed driving all that stuff. At least a 6" monster would be easier on my eyes.

    So like I said...incremental (at least in my view, BUT remember I already have a 928! -- I would need something offering a HUGE change to make a difference).
    Well, I think the screen is going to be bigger than you think. The device itself will be bigger than the 928, and there's significantly less bezel on the top and bottom of the 929, and more screen instead. So I think the 1080p is noticeable. But I can see why you're not overly excited about the device coming from the 928... I'm coming from an HTC Trophy that I've had and loved since launch day on Verizon ;)

    Only if it comes in red
    I think it will, along with a 928 in red. That's why that shell was leaked a few weeks ago. But I wouldn't complain if it didn't if it meant they also gave a matte white option.

    Yeah, I came from the Trophy too. Your powers of restraint are remarkable :D

    I am really pleased with the 928, its basically replaced our P&S for me. Actually takes worthwhile photos.

    What about a 5.3", snowmutt? Is that good enough for you?
    Would depend on the foot print and the bezel. I also need a case due to my work enviorment, so that adds girth. I am still open minded though.

    Have you heard that 5.3" are what they will be?

    Aaronjay over at Windows Phone Magazine did some simple calculations to figure out the size of the display. His conclusion is that it will be right around 5 inches.

    Seems right to me!

    I'm getting this as soon as its available. I was planning on getting the 1520, but with this being a little smaller it is going to be perfect.
    I've gotta be honest, if NOKIA announce on October 22nd a UK Version of the 929 then I'd definitely get that over the 1520, a 5" 1080p display seems more sensible than a 6" version - but if they don't, then it's the 1520 all the way!

    Also where's tcman. Been? I'm sure he could shed some light on the subject
    I think end of July I mentioned that Verizon is working on 3 new devices and that they will be available on late October early November. 929 will have under 5.1" display white black and (red depending on god knows what). On contract 149.99 and 499.99 retail however it's up to the big guys and pricing maybe be different but most likely will stay the same. Why 20mp and 5" display? To keep the cost down. Majority of WP users are first time smartphone users or bought the device due to its high performance and low cost. So a 40mp 6" would have increased the cost. Plus a 6" display is definitely factor for people not to buy it.

    You said, 3 devices, is there a HTC or Samsung model in that "3' that you know of ?


    As for the 929 for me, I am waiting on final specs before I decide. MicroSD ? FM radio ? 64gb option ?

    The 928 is fine for now and also waiting to see if HTC releases a high end WP device for Verzion....

    But, if a high end device came out for Verizon with the MicroSD option and FM radio among all the other features of a high end phone, I might just jump at it..

    I'm not sure what the third device is but it's definitely another Nokia and it will not be part of this launch. Nokia's tablet and 929 are the other two devices.
    I haven't seen the phone or the official spec but I think 929 it's a 32gb no micro SD no fm radio very much like the 928.

    Ok, cool....more disapointment from Nokia for me...I still wonder why Verizon didn't want the FM radio on their "high" end 928.... I'm sure it's there but, Verizon disabled it, just like they did on the Touch Pro 2....

    If they HTC 8X had 32gb, I would of never switched...

    Seeing as how my Lumia 928 fell out of my pocket as I was riding down the interstate on my motorcycle (I imagined that my phone took out a few cars before it finally died in traffic) this phone is well timed. I will most likely be looking at this phone when it comes out while I suffer along with my little Trophy.

    I saw someone mention in the WPCentral news article that a comparable phone (in dimensions) to this would be the Xperia Z1? Does anyone else know of something else on the market that I could go to my local Best Buy and put in my hand to see if I would like a phone of this size?

    Ugh. Just give me a top-flight, fully loaded phone, Verizon. I want a xenon flash. I want FM. I want a micro-SD slot. I want Qi integrated. I want the full 41 mp of love on a processor that can handle it. I want your boring corporate fingerprints off it. Tell Nokia to give you their best as they sign off. *grumble grumble*

    As I said I haven't seen the phone or the official spec. What I've said was at best an "educated" guess. Keep your hopes up. You never know

    Yeah, they really have. We know what the front and back of the phone look like. That's all we really know for certain. We don't even know that it's 1080p. There's so much more known about the 1520 & 2520 than about the 1320/929. This device is going to be the most surprising part of the announcement. Only four days out!

    Good! Nokia is usually leakier than me after a can of Rockstar. I'd like pleasant surprises for a change!

    According to the verge, they might not be announcing this tomorrow, which sucks, because I've been waiting for sometime for it..

    What to expect from Nokia World tomorrow | The Verge

    "While Nokia’s Lumia 929 has leaked a few times, it appears the 5-inch 1080p device is heading to Verizon, so it’s not expected to be unveiled during Nokia World tomorrow. We’re told that it’s still undergoing carrier testing."

    I'd be delightfully surprised if it was announced at Nokia World. But I still do think that the device will be released on Verizon in November. It'd just be nice to officially hear about it. All we've heard about it thus far has been speculative.

    Does it that matter though? I would think nobody was expecting a operator variant to be announced in Nokia World. It's about the global main devices.

    All that matters is that Lumia 1320 will hopefully be announced tomorrow, meaning Lumia 929 is right around the corner just missing press release from Verizon and Nokia.

    I have had feeling since the start that Lumia 929 would not be seen in Nokia World. Lumia 2520, Lumia 1520 and likely the 3 Asha's are pretty much sure.

    That said, it could be that The Verge is saying that the Lumia 1320 Verizon variant would not be seen in Nokia World, that would certainly make sense. Nokia World is about global devices and they are not going to confuse the press by announcing operator variant there. Never have before in Nokia World.
    The Verge has been sticking to its guns saying that the 929 is not a variant of the 1320, but of the 1520. The 1320 is supposed to be a large screen low-mid end device. Where as the 929 is high end.
