Boy, it is great when newly announced smartphones are launched fast, not ages after being introduced. After being officially unveiled on May 10, the Nokia Lumia 928 can now be purchased from Verizon. Pricing, as promised, is set at $100 on a 2-year contract, with an extra $25 of credit to be used towards purchases from the Windows Marketplace...

July here. By then we might actually see some X Phone action or a One for Verizon. Still, I eagerly await 928 reviews because hey... Nokia. I miss Nokia!

If you can wait i suggest wait for the next models due in November, that's where all the huge upgrades like quad core and 1080p will make their way into the next gen of windows phones - though, the catch is Verizon might not get any of them (AT&T again) and for Verizon = next year. Im saying this as a fan of Nokia's products. If you dont care about specs and want a reliable phone, then 928 is a good choice.

Most likely it will go to AT&T unless Verizon sees phenomenal sales from the 928...which I'm not expecting. Verizon will continue pushing the ever-profitable Galaxy S, iPhone and Droid lines. Can't say I blame them, but I welcome the additional choice of a flagship Lumia.

I suppose the 928 is cool and all, but... The 925 has been stealing my eye.
Wonder if they'd ever go in on a luxury brand crossover - cut a deal with Porsche and license use of the 911 (Turbo?) moniker. Hot red paint job, swift & nimble, finely tuned and calibrated... eh, a fella can dream right?

That would turn me right off. "Oh, so this is the phone for pretentious douchebags with penis envy. I'll pass."

Just got back from my Verizon store where the lady had no idea what a lumia 928 was. Her boss said the phone wasn't released yet. So no Lumia 928 for me today.

How does the 928 score a better camera than the 920? Especially the 920 after the Amber update.... Sure, the 928 gets a Xenon flash, but that isn't exactly a 'camera' improvement, per se.
The 925 may have the more improved camera, with its 6 element lens, but I will wait until I see pics taken with a production version 925.

I m going on holiday in the US this summer. Will it work in the EU on my local carrier?

It is a global phone. If I got this phone and took it to the EU, I would just remove the Verizon LTE SIM and replace it with a local GSM SIM. Full price is $500US (I don't know if that's considered affordable).
