    Does anyone know if the 929 is coming or is this just the 1320?

    It's real... We just have no idea what's going on with it. Just the evidence in this thread: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...520-specs.html

    Hopefully we can get some answers.

    That crazy mariner, hahaa. Yes, it's a myth until it's real. And after Nokia World 2013, myth has moved up in the poll numbers.

    Well as it was Verizon phone/variant, it was never really going to be announced in Nokia World.

    I don't think it's whether it gets released as much as when it gets released. Those are press images that were leaked. Somewhere out there, someone at Nokia or Verizon was preparing this thing to be announced. It was rumored to be seen in November of this year, now inexplicably Q1 of 2014. Frustrating to say the least.

    I still don't believe the Q1 of 2014. Unless somebody has some more concrete evidence.

    I haven't heard anything from anybody else about it being delayed until Q1.

    On the software front, the Lumia 1520 and 1320 will come with a bunch of great new apps and features—many of which will be rolling out to existing phones in the form of a new update Nokia is calling Lumia Black. The update, which includes the latest version of the Windows Phone 8 operating system, is expected begin rolling out to Nokia Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8 in early 2014, the company said.
    Nokia goes big, introduces the Lumia 1520 and 1320 with 6-inch HD screens. Plus: Instagram is coming!

    I wonder if that's where Daniel is getting this information from.

    Oh, sorry. Didn't see that you had included that in your post. Yeah, I don't think we can neccesarily conclude that that implies that we won't see anymore new hardware on Verizon until the 8.1 software is released. I hope that's what he's going off of, because it's not very solid.

    What's your source?

    Frustrating is an understatement. I feel like waiting for another source on that though... with press renders ready and the latest batch of global devices announced, I can't believe this is pushed back to Q1.

    I went to my local Vzw store last night and picked up a Note 3. Love the screen real estate. The OS and user interface? Ehh, not quite so much.

    Honestly, the OS matters so much more than the screen real estate. I hope you don't regret your decision. But I am CERTAIN that I would.

    Yeah I'm having problems believing it too especially with Update 3 being coming out. The only thing they could be doing is delaying it until WP8.1 is released.

    I talked to an online chat guy with Verizon today. I asked him if he knew anything about the Nokia Lumia 929 and he said he'd only heard of it. I asked him if he thought it was going to be coming out anytime soon and he said potentially around Black Friday time just because they would want to get it out for holiday shopping. But he said he really was just guessing and that they aren't aware of new phones until a few days before release, which is true.

    But, at least he had heard of it. And his random guess lines up with the third week of November rumor that was circulating for awhile. Hopefully we'll hear more soon.

    Did he hear of it internally or from blog sites? If the latter, then he's just as reliable as any of us. I personally have given up asking carrier personnel. They are too low-level to be privy to upcoming devices and their release schedules.

    If Verizon is denied a high-end 'hero' Lumia for yet another holiday season then somebody at Nokia and Verizon is horrible at their job. The numbers tell you exactly why. AT&T gets 3 in a row and the holiday releases before Verizon (and, more importantly, its customers) get anything. It just doesn't make a lick of business sense ...

    You can always spam @nokiausa . I did today on one of their posts about the new 1520. Told them they need to stop giving at&t exclusives because a lot of people on VZW wanted a 1020/1520

    I tweeted to @evleaks asking if they can clarify this release date.
    If we hit mid-November with no word from VZW on the 929, I'll have to buy the 928. The 8X's texting bug is too disrupting and I can't deal with it for much longer!

    I haven't heard much on the 525, but I know VZW has seen the sales numbers on the 52x series and wanted one. Should be in the same price range as the other 520 series phones and will be offered for $0 with contract, month to month, and on prepaid. May also be unlocked globally.

    Just a guess, but I'd say the major differentiator will be LTE. Verizon wanted it in all WP devices, so my assumption would be the 525 will be a $150 or less LTE device.
