    Given Nokia's propensity for Thursday announcements, and the Verizon leak, what are our chances of hearing something tomorrow?

    I'm thinking it's doubtful. I was in the Verizon store yesterday and happened to ask the guy if he knew anything about the Icon, he said that he had not heard anything and they generally know about 2 weeks before the phone goes on sale.

    But, I will say this -- the HTC One Max was announced and available on the same day, so... Fingers crossed.

    This isn't necessarily true. Especially with WP8. Announcement could very well happen tomorrow. I actually feel more comfortable with tomorrow than any other previous date.

    Does this mean that the Windows stores would have the device available tonight?

    No... that would be unprecedented.

    I'd say 60% tomorrow, 40% next week. Announcement only.

    Odds based on zero science.

    I like this... I'd probably say 60% tomorrow, 30% next week, 10% for February.

    This is my first post on the forums. Hello all. I went to the Verizon store yesterday to actually play with the 928, 929 Icon will be my first WP. The guy said they took down the 928 demo in-store. That gave me hope that the Icon will be announced tomorrow since there are no WP's out on display. And maybe it'll be available for purchase next week?

    I posted in a couple of different threads that I know for fact that the MS store near me has accessories, and I also saw firsthand the accessories in a Verizon store near me. If the Verizon store has the accessories, then the phone is coming very soon. Most likely with the next week or 2. I called 3 different MS stores today and asked as well. One of the MS Store reps thinks the phones will be available between the 20th and the 25th. We'll see...

    I went to our local Verizon store tonight, and the 928 was not to be found. Could be Verizon's predictable insouciance with WP, but could also be a good sign.

    I think the lack of 928 in stores is a VERY good sign ;)

    The 928 was announced on a Friday and available the Thursday following the announcement. An Icon announcement tomorrow or Friday with availability about a week after puts us right in the middle of the 20th to 25th. Fingers crossed.......

    Why wouldn't they sell both, though? They discontinued the 822, the 8X is nowhere to be found in stores. What, they'll have the Icon & Odyssey? Lame...

    Perhaps you might want to look up the actual definition of insouciance. Last I checked VZW sells three Windows Phones and a Nokia Windows tablet. The insistence around here that VZW does not support the platform is really quite tiresome.

    Verizon has three Windows Phones all of which are outdated, by EVEN Windows Phone standards, when compared to the AT&T variants. When compared to the real players it's not even a fair fight. The two Verizon stores I went to had only one WP on display and it was beat up, while there were several versions in multiple colors, fully functional, of the other handsets. That looks like "casual indifference" to me. The only good thing is that while I was playing with the 928... No reps bothered me.

    Does anyone have some solid info? I just bought a 928, and if I can return it to get this.. I will. It just has to be soon! So sick of rumors, just want them to release it! Verizon will not say anything. They know it exists, the rep said Quarter 1. But they are so against windows phones they tried so hard to get me to buy a droid or an iphone.

    Does this make sense? Those of us with 928's are waiting for two things, ICON and Black. Which makes more sense, update first or new phone first. I would think that Black doesn't offer enough "new things" to do it first. ICON should come with Black. God, I sound so damn confused don't I. Thoughts if any of this makes any sense, LOL

    I too wonder if I should wait for Black on my 928 and hold off on getting an ICON, continuing to watch these forums and see what pros and cons everyone lists about it.

    Plus if I wait a little bit I can nab the special edition red ICON. (sarcasm)

    Keith, I would use the 928 until the Icon is released (as long as you are within the return policy). The Icon is so much better than the 928, I wouldn't consider not upgrading. It's weird; I've used iPhones since they came out, but I've been so stoked about this Icon! It better be as awesome as I think it will be. :) Cheers!
