    What are you guys talking about? Did I miss something?
    There was a hunch that the Lumia 929 would be announced roughly a week before projected release (next week). But it looks like today is not likely. But that doesn't rule out next week. Just a bit bummed because of anticipation.

    I believe the Lumia 1520phab on AT&T is being released for sale at their stores on the 21st. Was looking at a demo model yesterday and verified the release date with them , so, maybe its the same day for both. Kinda makes sense.

    I was just at the Verizon store and mentioned you all are putting out the new Nokia 929 next week. He said yeah, they just finished their training on it.

    I figured with the landing page for the 2520 up on Verizon's site and its supposed release on the 22nd it would make sense for the 929 to hit the same day.

    Supposedly they might be a discount if you get both as well... But I haven't heard anything more about that. VZW friends, care to shed any light? I feel like we're always in that dark on crap like this.

    That would be great! I've been wanting to replace my Transformer Prime for a long time now. Was hoping to get my wife to replace her SGS3 with the 929 as well.

    Even tho Verizon does releases normally on Thursday I'm honestly gonna say the 22nd will be the date. The reason? The 1520, 2520 and Xbox One all release that day. I heard Microsoft was having a huge campaign trying to push their devices. ATT is offering special price on the 2520 if a Lumia Phone is purchased with it. I'm sure Verizon will do the same thing plus we already seen ads for black Friday which lists Verizon's 2520 at $399 with a contract, this all tells me the 929 will be next week.

    I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this - But VZW probably isn't going to do an announcement/press release on a Saturday, right?

    Let's hope for a Monday announcement with Tuesday display & Thursday release. It's possible.

    With AT&T getting a working display model of the 1520 well in advance of availability of the device for sale you'd think Verizon might get the same for the 929. Except for size pretty much identical specs anyway. Be nice to be able to see it and give it a test. Yet not even a peep, and its supposed to be in stores for sale in less than a week? I'm starting to wonder about that, but its Verizon after all, right? Might explain a lot.

    This can't be happening on the 21st. Releasing on Black Friday would be weird too. I'm starting to think either the 26th or ... next year. :(

    Also I found a picture of a otterbox case for the 929 in infomanager.

    No freakin' way! I've been tweeting OtterboxCS off and on for weeks about releasing an Otterbox for the 928. Flagship Vzw phone and Otterbox is being stubborn about it. Oh OtterboxCS is gonna have their inbox blown up!

    You guys really think the 929 is worth upgrading to from the 928? Spec-wise? What would I gain from a 929 that my 928 doesn't offer?

    The 22nd is release day for the 1520 on ATT. I don't see any reason they both wouldn't release on the same day. Or better yet Verizon will trump ATT and release on the 21st.

    When's 929 coming to non-Verizon aka no longer being Verizon exclusive? This should be great if it happens!

    I don't think it will. Next phone to be released to other carriers will probably be in the fall with WP8.1 devices.

    My bet is still that this device is coming this week. Most likely the 21st or 22nd. They will want to release the 2520 at the same time as AT&T, and that means that they will be releasing the 929 at the same time.

    I think this phone has a more appealing screen size than the 1520, if it is indeed at 5 inches. Is there any confirmation about whether or not there will be a 64gb version of this phone, or if it has a micro SD slot? I won't buy it if I'm stuck with just 64gb.

    I wouldn't hold your breath on a 64GB version (though if the rumors are true it would be awesome) and certainly not a SD card version. I forget the exact percent but it's like less than 5% need more than 8GB on their phones. It doesn't make sense to cater to such a small market.

    Sound's like you'll be quite disappointed when you find out it's going to be 32gb with no expandable storage...
