    If that's true, then they're cutting it close. That's only two weeks away and we haven't heard anything about Nokia reserving anything to unveil it.

    That article got most of that information off of the WPcentral forums. Also Skinomi is releasing their skins for the 1520 on Dec 6th as well? Yet the 1520 is already out.

    Nokia isn't going to do anything to unveil the 929. If anything Vzw will have some type of event, but knowing them it will just show up on their website one morning with no announcement or anything.

    A la the HTC One Max. Just a tweet to announce that one, right?

    Henceforth...let's not post another single word about this ghost phone until Verizon has it for sale on their web site. (yeah...right)...

    How was the 928 announced? I don't remember but I wouldn't be surprised if the 929 was revealed in a similar way.

    If I remember correctly the 928 didn't have any fancy event. It just appeared.

    Although, the rumors and release date were announced at least a week in advance I think? Not to compare it to the 929, since the 929 hasn't been announced at all, I don't remember much of an event around it, but I think I saw a TV ad from Verizon. So Verizon did do a little bit of marketing for the first week or so through release. But no special keynote event. Which makes sense, since it's still part of the 92x series. It's not a flagship. And only coming to 1 carrier.

    MJF stated last Thursday on Windows Weekly that she has heard it may not get released this year at all and may slip till after the new year. Not sure if that was accurate and even if it was, things could have changed since then. But, that is what she was hearing last week. Just thought I would let you guys know.

    Huh, missed that, and I am a fairly dedicated WinWeekly listener.

    I am bummed, only because of here I am, contract gone, and we may have to make a move to Big Red. The 1520 is looking more and more like the only offering we are going to get this year and maybe even prior to WP 8.1. I can't reason out using my upgrade on the older WP 8's, on either network.

    Here I sit, enjoying my L900, but wanting those WP8 goodies. The L929 would be perfect for me if we move to Verizon.

    Unless, of course, it is a 5 month early April fools joke, and Nokia just hasn't stopped laughing long enough to let us know.....

    Didn't the author of this site say after the Nokia event that the 929 wouldn't be released until first quarter? That was somewhere in the comments or on the site, don't remember which....

    Daniel Rubino said that on one of his tweets... however, i think we should all remain hopeful that the L929 will come out near thanksgiving and at the least near christmas/end of the year...
    Don't give up hope guys! This phone will come out! Just hopefully in time for the holidays... That would be nice :)

    if the 929 isn't coming out until 1Q next year, they might as well scrap it and just wait for an 8.1 device.

    Or put 8.1 on it and just call it the 930 (and release it internationally). There really is no point releasing another 2x device this late.

    Yeah, I think they dropped the ball big time. They had momentum, they had media coverage and they big apps being released. How do they capitalize on It, by releasing 1 new phone that is a niche product on 1 carrier for the whole quarter. Big big mistake and I think it will come back to haunt them. Momentum will be killed.

    Can't go this long without new flagships especially through the holidays when you finally have some good things happening. Completely mishandled by all involved.

    But if they call it the 930 and release internationally, Verizon won't get it. Verizon's Lumias have always been exclusives, and lacking color and striking design. So I'm hoping they release this in December instead of pushing it to 2014 because I don't think Nokia would have enough coverage or momentum with this phone. They will need something more for a flagship in the Spring.

    I would like Verizon to get a flagship worldwide Lumia like other countries do, but historically that has never been the case, so I doubt it will happen. But yeah, I'd love for that to happen. I'd wait for that in the Spring if it were the case, but it doesn't look likely :(

    You also just made me really excited for 8.1 :D because regardless of when the 929 comes out, you know it will get upgraded to 8.1 if 8.1 is coming in the Spring. So that will make the phone even better. Very exciting.

    Yeah that's what I'm expecting. Which I would be fine with. I don't need a major event. But I think it would sell more units if more people knew about it. But Windows Phone on Verizon hasn't warranted a big expensive event so that's why I'm not expecting one. If I wake up one morning and hear the 929 was announced, I'd be totally ecstatic :D

    Well a black friday deal has the lumia 928 free with contract, so maybe they're are going to try and blow out the final inventory of it..

    im really hoping that that's their motive for doing that... they must be clearing the way for the L929?
    This might be off topic, but lets hope that there are some decent cases for the Lumia 929 when it comes out PLZ! :D ... L928 hardly had any, save for the Trident
