    The only good thing about the delays is that ever store should have accessories for sale, when I got my 928 I couldn't buy a case or screen protector for at least 3 weeks.

    I went to a Microsoft store today and was able to put in a "pre-order." It was free to put it down, I think it's really more of a "we'll call/email you when it's in" type deal. I didn't even need to specify a color. I did get an email receipt saying that I have a reservation on the Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon.

    The sales associate didn't know when it'd be in, but he said very soon. He said they've been able to do "pre-orders" for the last two weeks. He also said they are expecting many accessories.

    I have a question. How will the specs on the Icon/929 compare to the iPhone 5s and Galaxy S4? Is it better than those?

    I am new here to this forum. In any case I was hoping to get more info here on the Verizon Icon. Verizon has a new limited time individual plan..which has a great price...about $20 less than just about the same plan on ATT. Book short I was gonna jump ship from ATT to Verizon and hoped to get the Icon...but then I saw the reality...no word on it, no nothing just the rumors on and on. THEY just had the Lumia 928 in the store for a higher end W/P..MEH. I presently own the Nokia 920 and I like my 920 as far as how it looks and feels anyway better than the Nokia 928. I kept going back to this Verizon store...about 4 times in hopes of some news on the Icon. Yesterday Friday the 7th...I was almost going to jump W8 ship wooooo, and buy the HTC One as it just seems like an overall better phone than the plasticy 928...of course it's Android :( .but I thought maybe time for a change.

    Long story short so the manager now knows me by name..when I walked in..she was all excited said, DON'T buy the HTC ONE. That a Nokia rep was in yesterday Friday the 7th and told her the Icon will go on sale within TWO weeks!! So the 20th sounds about right. Unless the Nokia rep was misinformed seems FINALLY this phone IS going to come out THIS month..on or about the 20th. Heard it from the Verizon store manager who by the way already has all the accessories for the Icon...so stay tuned..

    They will be in the same field as the 5s and the GS4, however remember that WP is a much lighter OS so it doesn't need as beefy of specs to run smooth. Android is so bloated it needs 2gb of ram just to barely get by.

    The Icon will hit the shelves on February 20th. You will be able to place a $50 deposit to preorder one at a Microsoft Store starting next week.....

    I won't say how I know...but this is solid....I know many won't believe it because I don't have something to scan as proof...but we just received an internal memo stating the preorder and release date info...

    Just wanted people to know

    I keep saying to myself that I'm going to wait until I get Black on my 928 before making a decision on the Icon. I'm pretty sure that crap's out the Window (pun intended) as I preorder my new phone at the Microsoft Store on Wednesday.

    Now we wait for pricing. Needs to be $500 or less off contract.

    The 1020 is ~600 off contract . I have a bad feeling about buying off contract (which is what I planned on doing).

    The 1020 is 600 off contract and the 1520 is upwards of 700 plus. I have a bad feeling about buying off contract (which is what I planned on doing).
    Not sure where you are getting your info.
    AT&T is selling the 1520 16GB for $585 and the 32GBP for $640

    I have seen some 1520s go for ~$500 on eBay.

    I want this announced so I can save up and it can be less of a pain on the ol` wallet. I can afford it regardless but, I might be hurting for a while afterwards and I want to avoid that so I can buy stuff like Gas for my car.

    I haven't been paying attention to this forum for a while... has the battery size been confirmed yet? Because I can confirm that right now. It's only 2420 mAh. Everything else is pretty much known now, IIRC.

    Figured. Just found a bunch of documents for the Icon. It even included a comparison chart between the 928, 1020, and the Icon. I'm not sure why the 1020 was there since the 1520 should be what it "competes" against.

    Wishful thinking would be a VZW version of the 1020...

    This is in line with a) Dan's posts stating that he felt the Icon would be released before MWC, b) the timing of the Nokia teaser from yesterday, and c) the sales person at the Microsoft Store who told me earlier this week that they would be taking pre-orders for the device "very soon". I'm guessing that this is going to be it.
    Verizon store employee gave me 12th date last night. Mentioned black only in store. Already have accessories.
