Black Nokia Lumia 928 sold out at Verizon and Radio Shack
Nokia has done a great job drumming up demand for the Nokia Lumia 928. The recent focus on low-light photography has allowed the Finnish manufacturer to produce snappers with apertures perfectly suited to take pictures in low-light without a flash. And the optical image stabilizer on the Nokia Lumia 928 camera makes it look like a video shot with the phone attached to a remote control chopper, was using a tripod when it was not. Now Verizon has a high-end Windows Phone 8 model to call its own, just as the Nokia Lumia 920 has been an exclusive for AT&T.
It should be interesting to see the breakdown of Verizon's second quarter sales once the period ends, to see if the Nokia Lumia 928 will be able to take some business away from the Apple iPhone 5 and the just released Samsung Galaxy S4. And don't forget the BlackBerry Z10.

Agreed. Though I do wonder how many they had in stock so we could get a better picture of the demand.

Well my country has poor Nokia support, if i know 920 is not yet widely distributed here.. hmm :( I want to experience 928.
77. Alex123 (Posts: 227; Member since: 17 Oct 2012)
My country is also but now I have experience the Lumia 720 first before getting Lumia 920. It works very smooth with Super Sensitive Touch Screen, 1Ghz Dual core allows internet run quickly. the 6.7mp camera capture very very similar to my friend's S3 in Image quality (i did not compare in Low light) and most important apps are free in the app store.

Hope there is an international version of the lumia 928...
6. roldefol (Posts: 3106; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
I've only heard about Verizon and Rogers (Canada). International markets will get the 925 which has an improved camera and software and the new AMOLED screen, but no xenon flash.

Rogers? Really? That wouldn't make sense to me seeing how Rogers uses GSM rather than CDMA. Nokia would have to rework the phone to do that, and it wouldn't make sense for them to do that for just one carrier unless they made a deal for say 200,000 units. I would love it though if they did. I'd buy it in a second!
37. roldefol (Posts: 3106; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
It's a global-ready phone, so there shouldn't be too much reprogramming involved. The Snapdragon 4+ has CDMA, GSM and LTE radios built in.

See everyone 11mm aint that bad. I wonder how the beutiful 925 will do though.

Is it really a sellout if there's only like 2 or 3 in stock?
17. Whateverman (Posts: 3231; Member since: 17 May 2009)
I must admit, my first thought was "how I many were made available".
19. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Lmfao "2 or 3 in stock"
20. tashreef (Posts: 476; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
i think you forgot to add zeros after the digits
"Is it really a sellout if there's only like 20000 or 30000 in stock?"
yeh... not a big deal.... after All it's Nokia
22. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Now don't be silly tashreef.
20.000 in stock, now you're making me ROTFLMFAO, please, there's no demand for the phone!
S4 has 469 posts
Htc One 150 posts
Sony Z had 100+ posts

Trollo lo lo la, trollo lo lo la, trollo lo lo la. I've gotten banned so many times by PA, yet this guy is free to troll nonstop. How does he get away with it? I'm not understanding this website and its rules.
34. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
How was i trolling?
Where did i post first stating any negative things against Nokia...?
I just replied saying that the phone is thick, and Nokia should be making device at 9mm, every one wants Nokia to be on par with other brands to keep up to tech.
So lubba, instead of giving logical answers, no need to go off topic, cause looks like you can't and have nothing to contrubute, so you kivk off and take you're anger on TROLL, pathetic, you need help, take a shower or stop posting for few days, get you're self and act togeather to a wise, smart person. No need to complain.
Please seek counselling lubba™
36. tedkord (Posts: 5107; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
I for one wish manufacturers would stop the race to paper thin, add a couple of mm and punch up the battery. Why is Moto the only company that gets it - a 3300+ mah battery is worth the slight extra thickness?
35. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
The L928 is a great sexy slick stylish black clad aluminium device, with the best camera to date, so how and where did i say, or Troll, please you aswell. Credit given where it's dued.....
39. lubba (Posts: 1311; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
Troll, I've seen many of your negative posts and the many thumb downs you gotten.

This is sunday and he spent the entire day trolling a Nokia topic. Any doubt he is paid by samsung?
49. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Please stop being jealous!
You have spent all day being angry, agitated, pisset off, worried, angry, viscous, rude, intrusive, vulgar.
Please stop posting, you are ill.
Please take control of you're self.
Please you also are not fit to post.
Please take a vacation, or a shower.
Please hope you get well soon.

Yes yes TROLL is the victim here...
67. jroc74 (Posts: 5192; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
Yes.....great price. Which reminds me....some like to say the success of Android is mostly due to the cheap .....$99 phones. So....if WP doesnt grow alot in market share in the next few years.......can we still say its price for Android? I seem to recall there are deals for WP phones too.
I really hope more $99 WP devices come out.

This topic was about lumia 928 until one retarded user start to troll this topic. What a shame... phonearena has a fantastic site with good topics being completely destroyed by one user.
43. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
TROLL, instead of illegitimately attacking Nokia, why don't you apply to Nokia for a job instead? There's no hope of stopping their comeback by means of pasting fraudulent negative reviews and comments about their products and services.
Samsung has previously been busted for paying select individuals to post online comments to damage their competitors. I don't know if you work for Sammy or not, but it does speak volumes about the quality of Nokia's new Lumia Windows Phone products if Sammy and/or others are willing to go to such extremes...
IMO: The Lumia 928 is a solid choice for a top-end smartphone, and those buying such a device likely won't be dissappointed with their purchase.

He achieved its objective: destroy another Nokia topic.
51. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
It doesn't matter - these new Lumia smartphones are selling well, and there is nothing that TROLL or anybody else can say that is going to prevent the comeback success of Nokia, or the success of WP OS for that matter.
65. windroid (unregistered)
It's just its annoying this nonsense posts that completely destroys a topic and any possibility of having a natural and salutary argumentation or discussion.
Anyway nice see 928 being sold out, just hope it's from high demand rather than low supply. We just cannot know that now... have to wait.
83. roldefol (Posts: 3106; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Knowing Verizon - they of the Droid and the iPhone - it was low supply. Which is not a bad thing and means they underestimated interest in Nokia.
47. jcpwn2004 (Posts: 314; Member since: 18 Jan 2012)
Congrats to nokia, their most recent phones finally caught up to the competition. Can't wait to see how smartphones progress with android/ios/wp fighting for the top. RIM is still a distant 4th at this point.
71. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Your own comment was deleted because I replied with something very similiar to the following statement:
"darac, are you really that naive to think that major corporate entities don't hire paid shills to attack their competitors by posting fake online user reviews, as well as other types of negative commenatry? Why? Because there are tens of billions of dollars at stake (possibly even hundreds of billions), and so it should hardly come as a shock to realize that certain leading OEM's, or their principle investors, may actively be engaged in efforts to conduct negative advertising campaigns that entail the use of illegal and/or unethical methods to influence public sentiment."
I also named a company that was recently being investigated for these types of actions: let's just say their corporate HQ doesn't reside on the North half of the Korean peninsula ;o)
What? Corporate lies and dishonesty? NO!!! Perish the thought...
74. ncarlosmiguel (Posts: 206; Member since: 14 May 2013)
If what you say is true about TROLL, then why is he just bashing WP8?
If you are saying he is paid by Samsung, shouldn't he be bashing Nokia, HTC and especially Apple as iPhone is Samsung's target to beat?
78. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
ncalosmiguel, do you really think TROLL uses only one Phone Arena account? For all I know, you are probably him, and thus I refuse to waste time answering more obvious questions...
79. ncarlosmiguel (Posts: 206; Member since: 14 May 2013)
LOOOOOL! Just LOL dude!
You don't see me bashing any company do you?
Just the thought of me replying to myself made me LOL!
Seriously?? If you can give a rational answer to my questions then I will pretend to be "TROLL's another account"! LOL!
81. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
You probably aren't worth another reply, but I'll try to keep this simple: duplicate accounts are easy to create, and the world is full of proxies, and other means of spoofing that are too complex to talk about here.
There's no reason for me to assume that you are legit, and anybody who runs to the defense of TROLL is being a dolt. Please don't come between the prisoner and the executioner. Byeeeee...
86. ncarlosmiguel (Posts: 206; Member since: 14 May 2013)
You don't have any argument so you keep on insisting I am another "TROLL account". Yeah seems legit.
I am not in defense of TROLL. I was just asking you to give weight to your accusations by answering my questions. It doesn't matter if he's really paid or anything, at least to me.
By the way I think Lumia 920, 928, and 925 are great devices also the live tiles of WP8 is beautiful. Have a nice day! LOL
84. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
you keep defending troll, so clear your either one of his other accounts or another troll supporting other trolls
all creditiblilty you may have had is gone and anytime you defend a troll people should just report you.
theres no real conversations or debates on here anymore and its all down to people like your and your possible alter ego troll
wish P.A would give someone who knows what the state of the comment section is the power to start cleaning it up
87. ncarlosmiguel (Posts: 206; Member since: 14 May 2013)
chaoticrazor what happened on standing on your own?? LOL
would you care to answer my question in comment 74?
I bet you can't so you will also just keep on saying I am another TROLL account or PA should ban me.. LOL
88. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
child your holding it all on your lazy comment about how you dont see you bashing others yet im saying your a troll supporter...the 2 are different so what other defense you got
plus the first part of your comment makes no sense and is based on nothing....im on my own side sure
ohh and whats with ''LOL'' why the capitals are you that childish you need it in capitals to make yourself laugh
your lack of any real sunstance in your comment points to the same style as troll, i wouldnt be suprised if your troll
89. ncarlosmiguel (Posts: 206; Member since: 14 May 2013)
So you couldn't answer me after all. How old are you anyway? calling everyone on this site a child.
So you're on your own side thats why you keep thumbing up your own posts, it's like giving yourself a high five LOL worse than high fiving each other. Who's the child now?
I am not supporting TROLL, please! I would have even agreed with you or urban if only you could give a legit reason. It's not important to me if he's paid or not anyway I was just curious so I'll let this go now. I'll just see you and your bullying, hypocrisy and double standards on other comments section.

This is good, the more devices that sell hopefully gets more developers on board and helps with gettting more of the top apps quicker.
70. Damo579 (Posts: 211; Member since: 18 May 2013)
It sounds good hopefully this will help windows phone become more popular. It's a nice phone I wish my lumia 920 had a xenon flash.
