    I am shocked that Verizon would prioritize a Blackberry over a flagship Windows Phone at this time of the year. Horrible.

    But the actual phone displayed is the Nokia Lumia 925, right? Also can be seen if you Bing "Nokia Lumia 929."

    The Blackberry Z30 actually has demand? I mean, I know Windows Phone is extremely low on the totem pole for Verizon in terms of priority, but I guess I learned something new.

    @Indistinguishable It looks like the 925 to me as well in the search results. Likely a placeholder, as you mentioned earlier. But of course, that's just observation. Hard to tell for sure without a larger image, but I think you're right.

    More like Verizon didn't want a direct competition to their BB exclusive.

    What indicates a delay due to the BBZ30, exactly?

    I had a keyboard on my Asha 303, I don't think you need to pay anyone anything just to use somthing as generic as a qwerty keypad.

    First off, with no third row of tiles, I am with those who think this is just a 925 substitute until the 929 becomes public.

    Sigh.... And my dream WP shows up on Verizon, when I may very well be stuck on AT&T. Just killing me. Nothing but love for the 1520, but this is exactly my screen size. Playing around with my wife's Note 1, and then trying out the 1520 and Samsung Mega 6.3, I have no doubt 5.0"-5.3-ish is my sweet spot in screen size.

    But Big Red would be quite a bit more expensive for me. Sigh......

    I guess there's no counting for intelligence at VZW. I mean, really...delaying the 929 for a phone with zero demand? BB is done. Nobody is going to rescue that ship. This is an idiotic decision on VZW's part. Delaying a phone that has solid demand, during this time of the year, for a phone that has zippo demand is just dumb on so many levels. Kind of like not offering the 928 in red (I'm still on my 822 and month-to-month because of this). I just don't get it.

    I was at the Verizon store two days ago and literally watched a store employee convince a lady that walked in to buy a 928 to get the iPhone 5s instead. I didn't want to jump in so I waited until the lady left (she ended up leaving without purchasing anything) and told her that she should let people decide for themselves instead of saying that Windows Phone didn't have apps.

    I found out that the Verizon stores are carrying many holiday gift items (fitbit, Bluetooth speakers etc) that only have ios and Android apps, so they're pushing these devices and trying to add on these items to each sale.

    It is sad that Windows phone doesn't have official Fitbit or Pebble apps. I have both a Fitbit and a Pebble.

    I know what you mean. From Jan, I'm changing roles at work and will be traveling 100%. I'm hoping I don't have to travel Southwest. Not having an all for an airline or hotel chain will suck. I'll also miss Uber :(

    The Blackberry Z30 actually has demand? I mean, I know Windows Phone is extremely low on the totem pole for Verizon in terms of priority, but I guess I learned something new.
    Looking at the specs of the BB Z30, it's actually a pretty nice work device. It's similar to the NL929 in a lot of ways, the biggest differences are the lack of killer camera specs, 16gb as opposed to 32gb, and the battery size. It has a 2810 mAh battery... Which makes me sad because I would have liked to have that inside the NL929.

    I'd consider the BB Z30 if the BB10 operating system wasn't laggy, buggy, and dying. The exact opposite of WP8.

    WP does have what I think is an official fitbit app. Have it on my 928.
