    Hopefully soon we'll get a look at the phone itself instead of just more pictures. If it is really coming out next month we should get some official info soon. I am hoping Verizon and Nokia will announce it and end my wait. I can't wait to see my next phone!

    Verizon! Just shut up and take my money!!! Ive been sitting on an upgrade for about a year now!
    I'd say Verizon! Just stop shutting up and take my money!!! I want them to start acknowledging the device ASAP. I'm glad we've got Honestabebread to at least tell us what seems to be going on.

    Long time reader. Just wanted to say that waiting for this phone to be released is probably the most painful waiting experience ever. My phone is dying and I've been dying to get my hands on a high end Nokia phone. I've only been sitting on my upgrade since the middle of February, but it's already felt like an eternity. Right now, it's between the 928, Blackberry Z10, HTC One (if it comes to Verizon) or the Samsung Galaxy S4 for my next phone. Heavily leaning towards the 928, but patience isn't one of my strong points lol.

    the z10 is the only phone that seems like it will be released ahead of the 928.
    the HTC one isnt coming to verizon, and the s4 is slated for end of april.

    i am not paying 200 for a blackberry (i hear its great from honestabebread, but i dont think i can deal with glitchiness like this.. reminds me of my current droid (BlackBerry Z10 vs Lumia 920 video showdown - YouTube) nor will i pay 200 for the 928. especially with the 822 being free
    if the 928 is 100 or less, im in

    Don't be so quick to think the HTC One isn't coming to Verizon. Gotta give the DNA a little breathing room.

    VZW is all about universal device roll outs. If every carrier gets the same flagships around the same time (Z10, GS3, iPhone 5 for examples) it means the network is the main reason to choose your carrier. I mean, exclusives aren't necessarily going away but Verizon has the best network (not really going to argue this, unless you know of another carrier that has LTE in a town that has a population of 350 people but is 50 miles away from another LTE site) and they would really like that to be the only reason people choose them.

    In fact in 2014 Verizon hopes to go non-subsidy completely.

    It is all about choice. I agree, it is hard to keep waiting. I would knock the BB Z10 phone out of the choices because it is to much like a skinned version of android with a lot less apps. I do like the look and feel of the HTC One. As for the Galaxy S4, not to much of a fan of the plastic feel of the S3, however the duel camera feature has gotten my attention. Granted, my favorite phone is the high end Nokia Lumia phone because of it's quality feel and the WP interface, but can not stand AT&T.

    The Z10 is not a "skinned version of android" anymore then Windows Phone is a "skinned version of android." Yes, it has an Android emulator on it so it can run Android apps. It's currently only Android 2.2 so from what I've read it kinda sucks. I have to upgrade our BES to 10 so I'll be forced to mess with one for a while when it launches next week, but once that 928 comes out I'm all over it, baby.

    I disagree. BB10 OS is very similar to android and IOS. Only cool thing about the update is the new Peek feature, but it wouldn't take much to make a widget on Android that mimics it.

    Right there with you. I definitely want this "supposed" profit 928 from the heavens. However, patience is also not a virtue a aspire to. I am about ready to jump ship from thy holiness and get a pagan GS4, unless they get their sh$$ straight, and very soon.

    Well, considering Verizon doesn't have the GS4 yet either, it's not really a choice. I would imagine that you will see them launching at around the same time.

    Does anybody know if this 920 variant will have an SD card slot? Any specs released at all?

    I think some rumored it would, and some said no. I'm pretty sure it won't, but I hope it does.

    I hope that it does also esp if it has a 32 GB version. I already bought the 822 off contract so most likely wouldn't be able to buy a new one anytime soon.

    I think it would be good if this was announced in the next two weeks. All the high profile app updates bringing good press would help the launch receive good press from tech sites.

    There is a lot to love about the phone. The main thing that's keeping me away is the app situation. Almost every app we downloaded to it seemed to be an Android port. My fear is that this trend is going to continue and the native apps will be few and far between. Also, the active frames only work with native apps from what I can tell so at this point that whole part of the OS is pretty useless. I can see where the peek and flow could get addicting and I do wish wp had that. It really is a nice phone, just not for me. The keyboard is pretty sweet if you type one handed. I usually use two and found myself thumb wrestling trying to hit those pop up words.

    One more thing. The actual phone part of the device is slooooooooow. Moving from recent calls to contacts and what not is painful. If wp didn't exist I guess I would grab one.

    How unlikely is it that the 928 will be announced at PAX this weekend? Will this phone even have a press event or will Verizon / Nokia just post it on their websites?

    Personally I have been checking this site at a disturbing rate just hoping for new info or a glimpse! A photo has to leak soon if the phone is coming out next month!

    For me personally, I'm getting awfully antsy to get me some Lumia goodness and I'm having a real hard time not taking MS up on a free 920 right now at the MS store even though it is on ATT. As much as I love Verizon, I can't stand to wait forever and it's already been almost 6 months since WP8's were released.

    Almont six months is the key here.

    Let the Z10 get some limelight. Then we'll start hearing something.

    Verizon hasn't released a flagship phone since WP8 came out. They like to give products some room before releasing new stuff. Just like how the Verizon branded One is going to be late to the game because of the DNA

    Having seen your posts on this thread and others, i take your comments seriously.so, almost 6 months, if we assume september as to when the 920 was announced, then that means end of march for an anouncement.If we assume that end of october was when the phones were actually released, then that pushes the announcement/release to end of april. thanks for all your comments btw :)

    you shouldn't be using the announcement date as the starting date. the availability date should be the starting date.
