    The faster people consign themselves to how Verizon handles phone announcements, the better they'll be in avoiding disappointments.

    FUUUUDGE!

    Verizon is bizarre. I think it comes from being too large of a company and no one can commit or comment on ANYTHING.

    They have stuff like this Mobile World Congress 2013 - Mobile World Congress
    But then sort of forget about it. The only Verizon speaker at MWC is in a panel on Identity Security.

    Looks like the wait continues. C'mon June.

    OK, my upgrade date is February 28. I'm with Verizon, and I've been batting around the 8X vs. 822. Will have to keep this in mind this week....
    I've owned the 822 and now have an 8X. Both phones are nice, but I prefer the 8X. Really you can't go wrong with either.

    Personally, I HATE the 4+" phablets. I like something smaller that I can manipulate in one hand. (No I do not have unusuallysmall hands ;-) ) I just am always on the go and don't always have the luxury of using 2 hands all the time and love a device the size of the iPhone5 or my current Trophy. No EVERYONE needs big, huge 4+" screens. I like the size of the 720 that was just announced, but I am afraid Verizon will be getting something the size of the 920. Bottom line, I need a new device as my Trophy is dieing, and I'm willing to consider anything with a smaller screen.

    Elop said the 720 most likely won't come to the US due to a lack of LTE. As far as one handed use goes both the 822 and 8x should be fine, as you confirmed you dont have small hands.

    The Verge reported yesterday, that Nokia's next flagship phone, the EOS, will be exclusive once again on AT&T. However, Verizon will be getting a 920 variant in the coming months. I am happy but disappointed in Nokia for leaving Verizon out again with their next flagship device.

    I keep asking myself, when will Nokia learn? Just look at Samsung Note 2, the GS3 and Apple's iPhone. Both of these companies release their flagship phones on all the major carriers and are making tons of $$$ for their bottom lines. Nokia is just hurting their company by having these exclusives with their flagship phones.

    Nokia is already supply-constricted by their manufacturing capacity. That means that they're already selling every Lumia device they can manufacture and while the situation is bound to improve during 2013, with the current demand it's not going to be resolved until early 2014.

    Since Nokia has limited amount of Lumias they can sell, they can go for exclusive deals.

    Exclusives also allow Nokia to get much more aggressive subsidized pricing. If the 920 was not exclusive there is no way AT&T would be handing them out for under $100 with a charger on launch day.

    It was 4 to 6 weeks after the 8X and 822 went through the FCC that Verizon started selling them, so I'm hoping that will hold true with the 928/Laser.

    I hope its that soon Gungzwei, but ya never know. I'm eager to get developing on WP but won't do it until I've used one for a bit to learn the ecosystem on an intuitive level.

    I was hoping for something special on Verizon but I guess that was just too much to ask for. It looks like t-Mobil will be getting the catwalk phone that has caught my interest. If the Verizon 920 variant is released with most of the bugs and quality issues worked out I will be happy. I am hoping for some minor improvements though such as a better battery etc. Once again being a Windows Phone user on Verizon is less than exciting.

    Which part is confusing? Unfortunately it has been frustrating being on Verizon. We are constantly given rumors that give us false hope only to be disappointed. At this point I am done with getting my hopes up and try to have more realistic expectations.

    As a very anxious Verizon customer, I completely agree. Verizon pretty much gave the middle finger to WP7 only carrying the Trophy (which is still going strong for me). Att OTOH, carried almost every variant of WP7 one could imagine and has continued to show support for WP while Verizon is starting to slowly dip it's toes back in WP's waters.

    I know that means we won't see an EOS type device on Verizon for a very long time if ever, but for the overall sake of WP and future development, I'm glad someone is standing by the platform wholeheartedly and has been doing so since it's inception. Verizon needs to get away from being so heavily vested in Android. That has to be a nightmare for all their own programmers who have to tailor each iteration of Android for each phone. Sense, Touchwiz, and Blur surely only complicate things more.

    As long as Nokia wants their flagship phone heavily subsidized like AT&T did for the 920 I don't think Verizon will get one. Verizon sells their network. I hope it won't be long before Nokia feels they can launch their top phone on multiple carriers at the same time.
