I would love an international 929 to replace my Lumia 800! :winktongue:
I think it'll come out. But I think Verizon is going to pull an AT&T and have this 5inch variant as an exclusive for at least a few months before an AT&T variant will come out in the US. Global variant, i'm not sure.
This might be an optimistic scenario. Considering the 928 never appeared on any other carrier except Verizon, I really doubt they will make the 929 available elsewhere. This is a real shame, the 929 could have competed with the likes the 5s and Nexus 5 internationally this holiday season, but instead they do this stupid exclusive crap.
I'm kind of expecting this to be its own thing. Maybe a more lumia looking design with similar specs will form a 930 model which will follow the 929 launch, for everybody else.
RIght, this is what I'm saying. But it'll be 3-6 months before that model comes out.
It's the same as last year with the 920, just in reverse. This year Verizon gets the exclusive for the Holiday season. I don't feel bad for anybody on ATT as they've gotten the 920, 1020 first.
