    Well just left my local VZW corporate store, I got a buddy that works there. I was talking to him about it and he told me he does know about it and yes it has been delayed. He said he doesn't know how long for. He did pull up his tablet and looked and said yeah if it would be coming out it would be at the top. Then he showed me the screen and he said anything that comes out within that week would be at the top. Not much news just wanted to report back. By the way the 2520 looks amazing.

    I may have to satisfy my urge with getting a 2520 to hold me over lol.

    A little humor

    Verizon...let's prep the new Windows phone and call it the 929, that way we can get around the 6 month clause like we had to do with the 920>928
    ATT....Um, we heard you have a phone designed after our exclusive 1520 and plan to release it before the 6 month clause
    Verizon.....nu-uh, this is simply an upgraded 928, nothing to see here move along.
    ATT....we have Nokia on the line and they said all you did was change the screen size and type from our 1520
    Verizon....fuuuuudddgggeee
    ATT...what was that?
    Verizon.....fine, I said fine. We'll call it the 1529 and release it in April. BYE!
    Funny if it happened this way, but of course, it wouldn't. See AT&T exclusive on 820 with VZW launching 822. The 929 is notably different than the 1520, but even so, the 822 is basically a reshaped 820 with more storage. Far more similar to the 820 than the 929 is to the 1520.

    It sucks that this is delayed. I want to get my hands on this device and see if it's to big or not. If the size is right, I want the higher DPI and better camera on the 929 versus the 928, as well as the faster cores for the future. Otherwise, that free 928 is looking good as my previously used 822 can't always capture the lower light shots that I often want. I am so seriously considering getting the 1020 on AT&T. I really don't want to leave Verizon due to the signal strength differences. But if this stuff keeps happening...

    I guess I'll pull the trigger on Amazon for .01 for the 928. I have got to get off T-mobiles service and I'm not going back to AT&T. After being with them for 10yrs they treated me like crap. I don't want to go back to Android so my options are really limited. Sigh.

    I swear it was there when I saw that ad this morning. It had 149 for a 2yr contract. Now it's back to $99.

    I guess I'm going to give up at this point. My logic, if they didn't release it with the 2520 then it will be a long time before it comes out. And if they don't get it out in time for the holiday shoppers, they're losing out on big sales opportunities. With that said, no word on the 929 must mean they have no near-term plans for the 929. It was a nice ride, Verizon. Off to the AT&T store I go!

    I am holding out hope until December 6th. If that passes with no news of 929, then I may give up.

    From the flyer posted above, I would guess that the 929 release date will be 1/16/14.

    Is that when they're going to release the 2521 as well?

    Not sure about that. Could be. But with Nokia running that promotion with Verizon I don't see us getting a new WP on Verizon before 1/15.

    I'm still not sure why they ever moved it out of the rumored device section.

    There seems to be several accessories slated for release in the near future, so that does at least give us faith in the idea that it's real. Head over to Amazon and search for the Lumia 929, you'll find a few of the usual cheap starter accessories.

    The question is no longer "if" its "when" now.

    Just a thought but with all the delayed issues and shortages of the 1520 could point to why we hadnt seen the 929 yet. Just a thought tho.

    This is exactly why I think there is a lot of hope for December 6th. I can't imagine a whole slew of accessories being released for a device that doesn't get released until Q1 2014.

    I like the optimism. And I hope you're right. But it's totally possible for accessories to be made long in advance. Look at iPhone cases, those always show up months before the announcements. Same with tablets, etc. so I'm not going to get my hopes up too high, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for early December. I really can't afford to wait into January because I have a lot of trips coming up, and I'd love to replace my iPhone 4S camera with a nice Nokia Lumia phone but don't want to buy the 928 knowing something else is just around the corner.

    If it comes to January, I may just wait for the next awesome ATT Lumia and jump ship from Verizon. I don't like buying phones that aren't bleeding edge.

    I'm the same. I just don't know how inferior AT&T's network is since I've had Verizon my whole life. I hope it's not a huge change. But I've been eyeing the 1020 for a while, just never had the network for it. The 929 was good enough, although not as great of a camera and very ugly, I'd take it if it came out soon enough, but I can't wait forever. Always seems like a waiting game with AT&T. But I'm willing to wait a little bit longer. I have until mid December to decide for sure.
