    Haha rumors, rumors. If that happens you can always take t mobile's deal and switch. The 929 looks like it should be functional for a while to me. I am unconcerned about the 1820 and just hoping the icon/929 actually materializes.

    Hmm, I saw a rumor on another site today about a potential, 5.2" Lumia 1820 this year. The rumor listed it as a device set for March, and it trumps the 929/Icon in just about every way. I would really, really be disappointed if history repeated itself with Verizon and the Icon were launched just a couple of months before other carriers are set to receive the high end from the next generation.
    Don't worry - if this is true, Verizon will have it next January, and will discount it for when all the 928 users' contract ends!

    Yay.

    I see why a lot of people would feel that way. But considering I will never leave Verizon unless things south, I don't really get too upset about things like that. If the 929/Icon is going to be the best WP8 out on Verizon, then I'm getting it without hesitation. Getting upset about what other carriers get will do me no good.

    Very wise and mature of you. On some level, I know the same is true for me as Verizon's network has been extremely solid for my family for many years. On the other hand, as a technology geek, I sometimes can't help but let my less rational human emotions show.

    Haha I haven't always been like that. I've vented on reps before for their poor selection, or their damn insistence on waiting months before releasing what others already have had out (except for Samsung or Apple products, those seem to come out first). But their service is so damn reliable I can't help but stay.

    As far as the Icon goes, its sounds like its an upgrade over the 928 in just about every area, save for maybe the flash. I know its not 40MP, but I'll gladly take a 20MP Nokia Camera over a 8.7MP, just as an example. I think we'll all calm down and enjoy our Icons once we get them in our hands ;)

    Amazing that everyone is hanging on rumors of this device when most other manufacturers are simply putting out yearly upgrades of their flagship models in a logical and timely manner which allows for maximum "flow" from one generation to the next. The S5 is official in March already and... On schedule... You'll have a new iPhone in June... On schedule.... Why the complete marketing fumble for Nokia? Has it always been this way? This is my first Windows Phone so I have no clue. But it shouldn't be this hard.

    This isn't all Nokia, it's mainly Verizon. Of course if Nokia had more market share they could force Verizon to get off their *** like Samsung and Apple do.

    Yeah, I hope Rubino speaks to that soon. My bet is that there was at some point a plan to launch on the 16th. And it was just internally delayed... Again.

    Wpc is still a very reliable source.

    *sigh* so many delays... Well in the end, let's hope these delays were worth it. xD And yes, WPC is VERY VERY reliable.

    It looks like folks you'll have to wait until April/May for new WP line up. It looks like VZ to release an 8inch tablet, insanely powerful phone (or another tablet and it is categorized as a phone by mistake) and a buffed up device similar to 929. I highly doubt it that Verizon will release two very similar devices in a two months window. 929 still show up as “delayed indefinitely”.

    I would still find that hard to believe when I've seen the Icon accessories in one of the Verizon corporate stores, and heard about them being shipped to Microsoft stores as well. Verizon will lose money on accessories sales and inventory if they wait that long!

    Tcman88, I'm sure you understand how ridiculous this news sounds. We've heard nothing about any of these devices you just mentioned, and Verizon is notorious for a late arrival to the party. How can we be thinking that they're going to release wp8.1 devices in April/May?

    Also, could you share perspectives with losbroadway who is a store manager somewhere. He just posted that he got marketing material that led him to believe it was going to be a 2-6-2014 release for the Lumia Icon... http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok.../248854-12.htm

    TC, any info on this buffed up device similar to the 929? I think the rumor of the Lumia 1820 described it as similar to the 928 and 929. And if the rumors have any truth in them, the 1820 is to be a sweet device.

    The minimum window is usually about 2 weeks so 02/6 is plausible, in fact any Thursday is a go. I have not seen any promotional materials for the device that have been sent out to stores. Plus Verizon usually does not send any promotional materials until it announces the phone, at least internally. Verizon has been working since June with Nokia/Microsoft to bring new devices. Also there isn't a huge demand for WP devices for Verizon to go ATT style. I mean in consumers eyes 920, 925, 1020 are same exact phones. Verizon had HTC 8X and 822 at lunch, 6 month after 928 and 2050 in November. Droid Bionic was announced officially and it was delayed months. Any accessory made is license through the manufacturer and not the service provider. That's why most cases come out a few days + after the official lunch date.

    There are rumors from an unknown source regarding two new devices from Nokia that are high end. One of the devices, the 1820, was described as the same shape as the 928 and 929. The other device was described as an 8 inch tablet. MWC is right around the corner, so might hear more about those 2 devices then.

    That sounds like the rumored specs of the alleged 1820. Maybe there is some truth to the leak of the 1820.

    quad core
    2k display
    3400mAH battery
    high end MP lytro-camera with Xenon flash
    32GB of internal memory with SD slot

    I believe the 55MP ISP refers to the camera which is supported by the Snapdragon quad core processor.
