    Some of you are just going to end up looking silly tomorrow. Basically every main contributor of every major WP site has now basically hinted tomorrow we will find out more about this. So chill.

    Evidence 1 CTRL+F "Tom Warren" after comments load.

    Evidence 2: Danny R a few hours ago;

    You guys need to stop reading into that "exclusive" thing so much...more on that tomorrow.

    Why post this after it's already been announced as an ATT exclusive?

    If it's "obviously" coming to Verizon, then you're saying Nokia is "obviously" lying when they explicitly say it's an AT&T exclusive on Nokia's website. So either they are idiots, or they aren't being honest with their customers. Awesome.

    The Nokia Lumia 920, exclusively from AT&T

    Apparently you guys missed the Daniel's comment in the main story comments. Or Tom Warren's comment on the verge telling the angry mob to wait until later today before complaining about exclusivity.

    Daniel Rubino, from WPCentral. Tom Warren from The Verge, and someone else I know personally that I am not naming.

    This post is stupid

    You're getting my hopes up, thanks I guess. If a variant of the 920 doesn't come out to VZW I'll explode. My Galaxy Nexus is lagging like crazy on Jelly Bean. I really need a new phone and one that will LAST.

    They are both meaning that a 922 COULD happen, but they don't know. And "more info on that tomorrow" can explain that specifically the 920 is exclusive, but there might be a 922. Again, they don't know...

    Having the 920, or some variant of it, on Verizon could be VERY good for WP market share/awareness. Add to that a "Droid level marketing campaign for WP" that I've seen a couple people mention around these parts (if true), and things could be looking up for ol' Microsoft. And Nokia.

    After all, it was Verizon that put Android on the map, despite T-Mobile getting the first device.

    Here's to hoping the OP is correct and that we find out something definitive tomorrow.

    If it happens, it will be a smart deal from Nokia. Nokia needs phones out there. What will be the factor that differentiates the L922 from the L920 though?

    Looks like the stocks might take a battering today though.

    I'm not discounting the fact that Verizon may get a different numerical variant of the 920, but if they don't I'm sure I'd be all right with an 8X. I'm just glad that 3 high profile devices are being offered at launch.

    after initial anger and grief at the att announcement, i'm with you on this one. the 920 is a superb device, but the 8X isn't gonna suck by any means.

    The 8X wouldn't suck. It is just lacking features the L920 has, that's all.

    We all know the 920 (or something like it) will be on Verizon eventually. The people that want it, want it on launch day.... Not 45, or 90 days down the road.. Launch day. I'm still holding out for something like that, but not getting my hopes up.

    To be fair the 920 also lacks features that the 8X has.

    If I hadn't sold my Galaxy Nexus in anticipation of getting a WP8 device on launch day, I might have considered waiting a week or 2 if that time frame were set in stone. However, now that I'm using a 4 year old flip phone, I will be at the Verizon store on day 1. If that means I end up with an 8X, so be it as it was a close 2nd to the 920 on my list.

    Same here. I really want the 920, but there is nothing about it worth waiting even more then a day for. It's 8X or ATIV for me. Still not sure which one but the ATIV has a huge battery compared to the 8X. I dunno.

    I've already written off the Ativ S as I didn't find the Galaxy S III comfortable to use when I owned it and the Ativ is a rebadged GSIII. I will say that the GSIII did have pretty good battery life in my limited time with the device.

    I'm leaning towards the ATIV because of the SD card expansion, bigger screen and battery. I do have the GS3 and the GNex before that so I'm not the biggest fan of Sammy's radio reception ability, but that's what 30 day returns are for.

    To be fair, the 8X is lighter, has beats audio, the HTC hub and has a higher PPI display.

    And to be fair to the L920, it has a Camera with OIS, Wireless Charging, Super Sensitive Touchscreen, PureMotion high refresh display, Nokia apps and a physically bigger display.

    I also think the 8x looks better. Wish it wasn't so tall tho.

    I was initially all about the ATIV, because I do seem to have good luck with my different Sammy's I've owned. I even went to the AT&T store to play with a GSIII to see if I would like a phone that size and how it would feel.
    But I love all the technology of the 920. I'm a geek and love having all that extra technology. I'll be honest the more I look at wireless charging, the more I love the idea plus the camera appears to be pretty amazing. I will line up at the local AT&T store when they open to get either the ATIV or the 920 on launch day just like the iSheep did. lol.
