    The answer to this question depends. It depends on what the contract says. Since the rest of us have no idea what the contract says, can you enlighten us?

    Yes, I'm tired of people invoking the "ATT Exclusivity" contract when they don't have a clue what it says.
    THIS. No one but a few AT&T, Microsoft and Nokia execs know what sort of exclusivity agreement there was, so when everyone keeps mentioning the magical 6 month number, it is as much a guess as it is "fact."

    I can almost guarantee you that the changes they are making for the 928 would be outside of the exclusivity contract. From what I hear, new gpu, camera, screen, body material. Idk how att could get all that in the contract.

    Exactly. There's not a one of us who knows what the contract says, and for all we know, all it could take is a higher (or lower) resolution camera to make the difference. The exclusivity contract is something we shouldn't even be worrying ourselves over.

    Instead, we should worry about aesthetics and availability. 😊

    Nah I cant "enlighten" you but last time I checked this was a public forum on speculating about the Lumia 928 all in good fun. Funny thing about this thread is most of us dont have a clue about the specs, release date, looks, or any other concrete information about the Lumia 928 to begin with. But thats the beauty of a public forum about a rumored device

    For all we know, adding the CDMA bands to the phone could be enough. Heck, it could just be a numbering thing. The 820 is an AT&T exclusive too. The 810 and 822 look a bit different and the 822 has CDMA, but the guts are the same.

    The 822 has some differences though it has 16GB instead of 8 and also has gorilla glass which the 820 doesn't have.

    Really hope the announcement is Thursday. Being the GS4 announced release date and price, it may not release until after GS4.

    This is old news that has been recycled. Seems to be a favorite past-time of online "news" agencies unfortunately.

    From the context, I think they are talking about the picture from the water park in the mirror image.

    The only leaked picture that I know of is the reflections from sea world. Hopefully we will get more leaks or an official pic soon.

    I believe Big Red is getting a 920 variant. Whether it is aluminum or modified in any way I don't know. I am thinking no.

    Reason being that ATT would no longer have an exclusive phone. When Big Red gets the 920 (mid-range for 2013) I am thinking ATT gets the new anodized aluminum 920 with a higher resolution Pureview camera.
    Nokia stated that they will bring exclusive devices for each carriers. 920 exclusive deal is almost near. So why shouldn't Verizon get the love this time?

    I am a NOK investor and follow the Yahoo message board for NOK. One of the posters stated that he was in a Verizon store yesterday and asked about the 928 and the sales person said that it was going to be available at the end of this month. For what it's worth...

    It has to be May 2nd (+- a few days) due to the exclusivity contract with AT&T ending on May 2nd (+- a few days)

    I can imagine Verizon releasing it on something like April 22th and you can pre-order it, but will receive it on May 2nd (+- a few days)

    Could you please share with us a copy of the contract between Nokia and ATT, so that we can put an end to all of the speculation about what the contract actually says? Does it say that the exclusivity period started on November 2, or does it list some other date? Does it say what the definition of exclusivity is? Does a simple model number change make it a different phone able to be sold on other carriers, or can additional RAM, additional pixels on the sensor, or different colors make the difference?

    Fact is that no one on this board knows what the contract says, so any claims of a specific date, or whether an upgraded phone will qualify are nothing more than pure speculation.

    I does not have to be May 2nd due to exclusivity contract. The 928 is a completely different phone from the 920. This said, Nokia and Verizon can actually ignore the contract since the exclusivity contract is most likely only for the 920.

    Just as I pointed out to Mirtas that we don't know what the contract says, I'll also say it here - we don't know what the contract says, so we can't say whether they can ignore it or not. It could very easily say "no phone with more pixels than 920," "no phone with greater screen resolution," "no phone with OIS," "no phone bigger," and so on, and so on...

    We just don't know what the contract says, so we are not in a position to say what they can or cannot do.
