    This is Verizon and a Windows Phone we're talking about here. There will be no marketing campaign.
    there is a ton of marketing by MS right now and other WP got marketing at VZW. I'm sure this one will too

    Given they are doing a mock up of the web page one would think they are going to release relatively quickly. It would be foolish for them to hold off until 8.1. That's three months or more of lost sales for an item that has already had some devices leak into the market in China.

    The damn thing WILL be released. But who ever decided the best marketing angle was to keep it secret, even though it's not a secret and is actually in the hands of some Chinese guy and string the tech blogs along until everyone is tired of it and THEN release it into a sea "healthy" competition needs to go back to class.

    Since the phone has been in testing so long, I have to wonder if there is an issue with it. I know my 8X has texting issues still, and I've heard that the 928 and 822 are riddled with bugs, too. I feel like it is very probable that since Verizon is CDMA, it may be having some issues with the Icon.
    Well it could have a crippling issue or it could be they don't like the color or the shipment could be trapped in a time warp or it is being held hostage by zombies. The metrics that demonstrate it is late/delayed are all based upon rumor and speculation regarding the release date. If VZW had announced a definite release date and missed it then it would be late. At the moment it is only late on the basis of rumors. This is no different than last year when the 928 was coming for months in the spring. When was it released? It was in days of the actual announcement just when VZW it would be released.

    As to whether the 822 and 928 have been riddled with bugs, that is using rumor and opinion (neither of which are facts) to support speculation. While the 822 is a lousy phone in my experience it is not buggy. The 928 is neither buggy nor lousy....

    This stinkin phone better be the most amazing smartphone on the planet. Actually its already using technology found in many other phones that have been on the market for months.

    What makes a shrunken down 1520 an earth shattering must have device anyway? Because the screen is smaller ? I mean, come on man...it better have more going for it than that.

    I'd postpone this thing until it actually blows every WP out there away, else the hype is foolish.

    I have a lumia 625, and the headphone can be really crackly... The 1520 does not have this issue.

    Qi charging built in? In a frame of 15% less volume and 30% less face surface area. I really like the size of my 928 - the 9Icon29 mimics that within a tenth of inch. Pass on the 1520's/GS4's of the world....

    Its no secret that Verizon drags their feet, but the overall packaging does make it - if it does get released - a very attractive device.

    The earpiece not working in the 928 doesn't have anything to do with the headphones or my speakerphone and Bluetooth would have the same issue... which it doesn't. But none the less, the earpiece issue is a known issue specific to the 928.

    On my phone I don't believe it's a headphone issue, either.
    However, the speakerphone sucks for me, too. It went after the earpiece. If I don't squeeze the back of the device, not the corner but the entire back, the speakerphone is stuck at around 20% the volume, making it difficult to hear in nearly any environment, even when cranked up to 10/10.

    Get serious guys...it is probably just a business issue- they still have inventory of 928s on hand to first unload. It is probably just that simple.

    As said in the other thread you posted this in, that's a very stupid reason to delay a product and stupid companies do not last particularly long.

    We're actually out of 928s in our store and we haven't gotten any deliveries for the device in the last few weeks. We got a bunch of 8Xs and Ativs but no 928s that I've seen.

    I think its more like UFOs. We have some pictures and bad video of the things. Some firsthand accounts. The officials keep trying to cover up its existance. People on the internets have differing theories on whether they really exist and if we will be visited by this phenomena in the future. We're all wondering how our lives will change if one day we have a close encounter with it.
