    I don't know which devices will get Windows Phone 8.1. If it was mentioned, I forgot all about it. But I assume the recent 92x series will absolutely get it. Windows Phone has always been pretty great at being able to run new updates and feel like it has new life breathed into it. But I don't think we know for sure which devices will get it. The dev team is being very quiet about 8.1.

    As for cases, I hope so, too, but then again, I've never really used cases because of the bulk and many are ugly. And since I work in design, I can be a tad bit picky, haha. But I agree the 928 cases never really appealed to me, and there were only a few. But for a niche phone in only 1 market, I can understand the lack of cases (as much as I wish there were more).

    Microsoft said all currrent WP8 devices would be upgradable to their next OS. I really hope this is true. I have convinced several people to buy Lumia x20 phones, and they will have my head if upgrades suddenly end.

    Personally, if the size matches up to being just slightly bigger than the 928, and all the other specs are correct, this is going to be a great device, and the one I am willing to renew my contract for. I don't know what any phone in the next 6 months can do to really top these specs other than maybe shoehorning in the 1020's camera without adding bulk. Other than that, there really isn't much in the way of spec upgrades coming in the next 6 months from any phone maker. So other than Windows 8.1, I don't think we'll see any must have features coming in the near future.

    It has everything to do with the L929! Most people are deciding whether to switch to att for better phones, or wait for the L929.... This guy decided to go to att to buy the L1520....

    Looks like Skinomi made some updates on Amazon.

    Whereas the skins were set for release for both the L1520 and L929 on December 6th, it is now December 20th for the L929 and "in stock" for the L1520.

    My wait continues. I feel like I'm 8 years old again waiting for Christmas!

    And before anyone gets snotty and says, "Well that doesn't mean anything." I'm not making any predictions. Just throwing something interesting out there as we all wait for the 929.

    That said, a bit more perusing on Amazon has shown that a screen protector from a company called SUPERSHIELDZ is available on December 30th and a case by Hyperion ships in 3-5 weeks. So throwing all that info in one pot = means nothing. :-/

    Can someone tell me, if the Lumia 929 is going to be released in EU particularly germany?
    The 1520 is awesome, without a doubt, but damn it's big, and i guess this Inch would make some difference.
    thanks in advance.

    It's a Verizon Wireless exclusive just like the Lumia 928, assuming something completely unprecedented doesn't happen you'll only be able to purchase this through Verizon Wireless in the USA.

    Right, them too.
    I guess I was referring more to it being made specifically for Verizon as a variant and not a model being promoted internationally by Nokia.

    .....and I continue to check this forum, as if the 929 would get released and I would miss it!!

    Oh well. Early December is here. Guess we will just have to hope for mid-December. If it is not here by the week before Christmas, I will have to decide what to do for my family as far what network we are doing. Important for my Wife's business.

    The L929 would make it a little easier for me to give up out grandfathered, cheaper plan on AT&T for the better network of Verizon as she begins to travel. Without it, I am betting the cheapskate in me will just cave in to the AT&T WP8 selections and lesser network.

    I wonder if this is another 929 out in the wild or falorin sold his to this person.
