    Go look on the Verge. Tom Warren just posted some of the specs.

    Microsoft is gearing up to market Nokia's upcoming Verizon flagship heavily. Sources familiar with Nokia's plans have revealed to The Verge that the company plans to launch its Lumia 928 handset in April on Verizon. Known previously as Laser, the Lumia 920 variant will include some significant changes that make it a new standalone device. We're told that Nokia will switch to aluminum for the 928, with a xenon and LED flash combination for the 8-megapixel PureView camera.
    Nokia's new flagship will also reduce the weight and thickness compared to the Lumia 920. We're told the Lumia 928 is 10.2mm at its thinnest point with a slightly curved back. The Lumia 928 has a squared look that's similar to the Lumia 720 and is said to feel a lot lighter than the Lumia 920. Other specifications, including CPU and RAM, will be identical to the Lumia 920. The 928 will also launch with a 4.5-inch OLED display and support for simultaneous voice and LTE (SVLTE) — other Verizon devices support SVLTE, but the iPhone 5 notably does not.

    Check the post date for Mr. Warren's post. It was back in January. I wonder how much of what he said is still accurate after 1.5 months.

    I wish I had an answer for you guys but its just not there. Sorry.
    it's fine that you don't have the answer, but if you could maybe put the word out to someone you work with who might have an answer, that would be great. I find myself in multiple group chats per week, and I just can't participate in them. I can't reply to everyone in the group, and I don't even know everyone that's in it because it just comes to me as if it's an individual text. And then replies that come from people within the chat come to me as individual texts as well, and I can't even keep track of who said what and when. It's outrageous, and my friends just think I'm nuts that in 2013 I bought a phone that can't do this simple thing, and I have nothing to say to them when they say that, because they're right.

    What DurnDurnDurn posted was guts from a link that was posted today. The link in the guts goes back to the one that was posted in January. So look for April as the release date for the 928.

    Not specifically referring to today, but I follow Tom Warren on Twitter and have noticed him tweeting links to old posts without ever making clear reference that he's linking you to an old post. A week or two ago he put a link from September/October 2012 but tweeted it like if it was breaking news, LOL.

    I wonder if this will come SIM unlocked as most of the Verizon flagship phones do nowadays? If so, I wonder which 3G bands it will support? Nokia do have a good track record of making their phones very "worldwide compatible".

    This would be good news for off contract MVNO users such as myself that could then stick their Straight Talk SIM in and have a pretty sweet phone.

    I could be torn between this and the 720.

    From what I have read, the 822 is unlocked and a world phone. However, per what was listed in the FCC filing, all I can say is it is not a world phone since it is missing GSM bands for the EU. Not sure if it will be unlocked though.
    Per what was on the FCC web site, this phone is not a true world phone which is a disappointment. It will have WCDMA 1900, WCDMA 850, CDMA 1900, CDMA 800, GSM 1900, GSM 850, LTE1700(Band 4), LTE700 Upper (Band 13)

    As for me, I am happy that Verizon is getting this high end Lumia, but disappointed in Nokia & Verizon for choosing to make their 1st high end Lumia a non world phone while the low end is.

    How much is going to cost me to ditch my 8x and get a 928 now that I used up my upgrade?

    Whatever you can offset the price of an off-contract Lumia by selling your 8X. No other way around it that I know of.

    Here's to hoping that they will include the wireless charging plate for free like ATT has been doing. Oh well it's mine either way... if it is real! :P

    Btw does the wireless charger work with aluminium back? Are there metallic devices that support Qi? If it doesn't i guess they could to the same as they did with 720 and get connectors on back for separate cover with the function.

    Wondering that too. With my 8X, I am loving wireless charging. I have one in my office, on my nightstand...Love the feature. I want to install one in my car but, I know my 8X's days are numbered due to the lack of storage space, so IF this has MicroSD AND QI charging...I think I am in love :)

    New info on the Lumia 928 has just been leaked:
    Nokia Lumia 928 will be available in 4 different colors

    Looks like the Lumia 928 will have an alu body in red/white/black or cyan.

    I can't wait for a leak of the actual design, but I think it will look a lot like the 720

    If this is true, the cyan will be pretty popular. Just no listing of yellow on that post.

    So I have some more observations. Nothing to do with the new Nokia. Its actually kind of troubling news.

    Everyone loves the Z10. I just did two weeks of trainings for the Z10 and everyone loved it. People who like Windows Phone are going to switching over. A bunch of guys I work with who are Droid fanatics are preordering tomorrow.

    I really didn't see this coming, but I'm probably going to order one when I can upgrade in July. I still love WP8 but honestly I'm a phone *****. I love SIM swapping and will probably regularly switch between the 8X and the Z10, but I have to have one. Especially after teaching everyone to use it the past two weeks.

    This obviously doesn't change Verizons total strategy, which is to weasel out Apple and have Android, WP, and BB10 all taking 30% of the pie, but I can see reps pushing BB10 as a third alternative and leaving WP in the dark

    Looks like a Nokia employee took a picture last month using the Lumia 928. Not a bad daytime photo.

    Interesting, and all within reason. I know nothing of the new Z10. In you opinion, can you list some advantages the Z10 has over WP8?
