    When can we expect news from vzw? ? Any updates as far as release?
    I've heard delays due to Sandy. They want to get the phones out November 15. If not then, look for a Black Friday launch. Will probably get free accessories with a new phone on Black Friday at this point.

    Thursdays is typical launch days for VZW right? So a reveal on the 8th would line up with a Thursday the 15th launch.....


    Think they would give away free wireless charging kits?

    Looks like HTC and VZW unveiling Droid DNA phone on the 13th in NYC. Rumored 11-20 release date. I really hope the WP8s will be out by then...

    I hate that it is taking this long after the unveil to get the hardware out.

    If the 8X comes in at $199 as speculated, consider me extremely pissed and likely to consider leaving Verizon for ATT. If the 920 can be heavily subsidized by ATT, then there's no reason Verizon can't reduce the price to be more competitive rather than giving the collective finger to all of us and daring us to leave. Especially considering the fact, taking everything else aside, the 920 is 32gb and the 8X is 16gb.

    Yeah, I said it.

    Just par for the course with Verizon as this seems to be normal for them. I hate it though, because it kills any momentum they may have had with the release.

    The 8X and Nokia 822 are up on Bestbuy.com right now. I think this is new, I don't recall seeing them there yesterday.

    822 comes in black and white and is $99 on contract, $549 off.
    8X comes in blue and is $199 on contract, $599 off.

    Says in-store only and release date is "coming soon"

    I've shared what I've been told in the past. Nokia had promised a 920 variant and then backed out of it when AT&T paid them money for the exclusive. Nokia has since promised that Verizon will exclusively get the quad core Nokia that will be released in Feb/March but Verizon is not holding their breath. They don't trust Nokia right now and are getting tighter with HTC. They've asked Samsung to work on a WP8 device that is not just an Android variant as well, but Samsung is waiting to see the initial sales numbers.

    If there is a Nokia Pureview based phone on VZW, it won't be until early next year. The 920 variant was originally supposed to hit about a month after AT&T released the phone. Can't say I blame Nokia for it. They get cash upfront from AT&T, a guaranteed amount of handset sales, and AT&T will pay Nokia full price for each handset. You can tell with AT&T's pricing that they are hoping to use the 920 to move people to AT&T.

    TSquare2112 on the 8x board says his corporate guy is reporting 8x on 11-21@ 199.99 on two year.

    Not sure if it is true, but sounds like what were looking at now...

    Yah just spreading the word. No offense, hoping your wrong and wanting a sooner date...but my gut tells me you are right.

    What kind of wireless charging equipment or accessories are going to be for the 8x? Any word?

    The BestBuy preorder for the 8X says it has a memory card slot. I know that's not true but it's interesting.

    No offense taken. :)

    I did not ask about accessories. I have found that Verizon is hit or miss when it comes to new devices and accessories. Some phones seem to have about a million different cases in the store before the phone is actually released, then some might get one case 6 months after the device is released.

    Yeah, I said it.
    I've said it before on another thread and I will say it here. Can you say thank you for fleecing me Verizon? I mean AT&T can offer the 920 for $99 on contract. And what does Verizon offer? An gimped a$$ 822 for the same price after a $50 rebate you have to wait months for. What kind of garbage is that. And even worse offer the 8X for twice the price than the 922 while having half the storage.

    I'm usually a glass is half full guy but this bullsh*t has me in the glass is half empty mode. 5uck them 5uckers! :mad: (yeah I'm raging right now)

    honestly, that could have been a date before Sandy...i mean, its all conjecture and rumor and everything until it happens.

    I would assume this stuff happens all the time.

    I would say the 8th won't happen because it's already almost end of the day Tuesday and no announcement at all

    Sounds like AT&T is pushing it hard. Speculation above basically says that AT&T made Nokia a deal that they couldnt refuse, even to the point of ******* off Verizon, the largest carrier in the USA... They are gambling that the low price will atleast make people think about switching to AT&T. I think Mr. Macphisto stated in a post that VZW doesnt do that. They are proud of their network, and phone makers need them more than the other way around. So, yah , the 8x might cost 199.99 on VZW, but your subsidising the network as well...which has a **** ton more LTE coverage. Not saying its right or wrong, just in my head that is how i am envisioning it. Our hospital i work at just got our LTE DAS equipment up and moving to AT&T isnt an option. so to that point, VZW it is.

    He told me the RELEASE date for Nokia 822 and an HTC "Accord" (his exact words)
    was 11-12-2012, and the 8X would be the 21st RELEASE.

    I too am hoping that he is off on the the 8X and it is released on the 12th, but like I said, I called a second time to confirm and he stuck to the same story and was looking at his "emails" of coming devices that he called something else, I can't remember, but it was a company jargin for whatever it was.

    He also mentioned a 13th HTC "Event" that he alluded to the HTC Android "Bigg @$$ Phone"

    Is there any chance the AT&T release this Friday could make Verizon bump up their date?
