    Broadway, could you possibly get a status update? Was there a delay because of carrier testing or something?

    I am not sure I will get the 929. I am using HTC 8X and I feel like the 929 is just an upgrade in speed not features. What I want to know more about is the Goldfinger

    It's much more than speed. It's got a 1080 display, a larger screen, quad core, presumably larger battery & memory as compared to the 8x. Not only that, it's got different software features than the 8x. It's got Lumia amber & black - those are feature packed. It's much more than speed. If you'd like to speculate more about Goldfinger, head over to the Rumored Devices section here: Upcoming & Rumored Devices - Windows Phone Central Forums

    Yea, just switching to the same hardware specs on Nokia is a big upgrade, IMHO. Did realize this until my friend with an 8X asked me to help set his up (he's new to smartphones). The Nokia firmware is worth the switch by itself.

    I don't know if we can call it a delay or problem with testing because they never announced anything. Can't be delayed if they never announced a date. Everything is speculation. I'm itching to get my hands on it but until we get an official announcement we're just throwing thoughts out there.

    I love my 8X but I've always wanted something a bit bigger. I've been off contract for a year waiting for something like this. A bit longer won't kill me.

    I'm kinda thinking we won't be seeing the 929 this week because it hasn't been announced. Nokia hasn't even said that it exists. Wonder if AT&T scored some right to release theirs first, that would suck. Sure hope they aren't going to wait for 8.1. I'm rockin a GS4 right now and about to through it out the window if I have to reboot it one more time, I'm just waiting to switch. Now if they make us wait, but give us a red one, I'd be happy.

    edit:
    Wonder what the special announcement is?

    Verizon Wireless News Center
    "Live Stream With Marni Walden
    Stay Tuned for a Special Announcement"
    From that same link: "On Nov. 19 at 2 p.m. EST, Verizon Wireless will hold a news conference and live Web conference discussing the reinvention of the wireless customer experience. Tune in for remarks by Marni Walden, chief operating officer of Verizon Wireless, to hear first-hand about how the tech experience of the future is here, or follow us on Twitter at @VZWnews to get real-time updates."

    Sounds like they're just trying to bring their tech support up to par with the rest of the world. They wouldn't hold a live event just to launch the 929.

    PS we took out FM, 1 out of 3 letters on the keyboard, and had Nokia replace the 20mp camera with a 500x500 resolution Instagram-ready sensor. We love Windows Mobile 6 or 7 or whatever it is now!

    I think their "special announcement" is just the destination retail store they announced in Mall of America today. And that they want to make their other retail stores in the same vision as "smart" stores.

    I mentioned this a while back about AT&T getting to release the 1520 since the 929 was the little brother but nobody seemed to agree with me. :(

    Yeah, watching their tweets and it's all about this store. Oh well.

    I'm with you on that. It always seems like every Verizon Windows Phone becomes a "little brother" because of how little attention they give it. But of course, every Windows Phone Verizon gets (or wants), is usually nothing new, just a less flashy version of a phone that already exists, so there's nothing new to really tout.

    It's unfortunate. If Verizon would get phones day 1 like AT&T does, or would want phones that weren't just black and white, they would have something to proudly announce.

    I still don't think that's it. I'm guessing it has more to do with getting the phone through the approval pipeline. Verizon is notorious for superfluous network testing and what not. They move release dates all the time. It's just a shame it happened this time with the 2520 and the holidays looming. Hopefully it releases soon. Could still be this week.

    And then they still get things like call blocking not working (on their network) despite their "rigorous" testing.

    Oh well, this 928 is pretty darn good ;)

    Yeah, could be. I'm guessing you meant 929 not 2520 though.

    No, I mean the 2520. They could be missing an opportunity that AT&T is cashing in on to bundle the 2520 and the 929.

    FWIW, I went to verizonwireless.com and started one of those live chats with a sales rep...

    ME: Hello. I was just wondering if there is a release date for the Nokia Lumia 929.
    REP: Not yet.

    So, I pushed a little further...

    ME: Okay. I heard that reps were getting training on this device, so I figured it would be released pretty soon.
    REP: Well, we're unable to give a release date at this time.

    So, it seems to me that they do, in fact, have a release date, but reps are being told not to divulge that information.

    Anyway, I just thought I'd throw that out there.

    The online chat reps have told me in the past that they aren't told about a release until the day of or the day before the announcement. Could be tomorrow if we're operating off your assumption that they have a release date in mind.

    Thanks for the update, Broadway. Please let us know when you hear anything!

    In terms of Amazon listings, it looks like Skinomi lists the release dates for their NL929 screen protectors as December 6th. All the other screen protector companies have made their NL929 products available as of today.
