Photo leaks of the Nokia Lumia 928, heading to Verizon

0. phoneArena 05 Apr 2013, 23:58 posted on

Serial leaker @evleaks has released a picture of what is allegedly the Nokia Lumia 928 aka "Laser" for Verizon Wireless; this is the Verizon/CDMA version of the Nokia Lumia 920 with a sleek aluminum body instead of the usual polycarbonate casing, and a previous leak revealed that the device will be offered in four colors, White, Red, Cyan and Blue...

The Z10 is a great phone. BB is still light on apps, but the OS is fantastic.

If I had to choose a new OS to learn, I would take a shot with WP8 before I tried the Z10 OS. I was recently at a Verizon store and tried using the Z10 demo unit. I stopped after about 5 attempts to exit the demo program that was running.

If you can hold off for a bit I'd def go with wp over bb.

Geez, what exactly in my post garnered 7 thumbs down already?

Anyway, @Hemlocke yeah I'm a huge proponent of having good core functionality and I don't use a ton of apps, which explains why my interest in the Z10 was so high. I really do appreciate that OS.

@Doug, I checked the Z10 at my local Verizon store as well. There's a button on the bottom that says "Exit Demo," so it should be easy enough to find if you want to give it another try. Either way, I'd recommend watching a video or two first so you know how to navigate the OS and can get more out of your demo experience.

Well, that's kinda the thing. I much prefer Nokia's hardware over BlackBerry's and am willing to wait for that, but I've been using Windows Phone 7/7.8 for almost two years now and am getting kind of bored with it. It's still just as good as it always was (WP8 is even a bit better, actually), but I really like BB10's take on what a smartphone OS should be focused on. If the Z10 had a comparable camera to a Nokia and better battery life, I would 100% go with the Z10 this time around.

Penny, I tried the Exit Demo button but it didn't register my press/click. If the OS gets confused running a BB demo program, how is it going to respond in the 'real' world?

The Z10 was a real let down. And I was a former BB owner (Curve 8330 and 3 earlier BBs before the 8330). If you are looking for a better camera, you should see what the L928 has to offer. Everything I have read about the Z10s camera is underwhelming.

After my short experience with the Z10, I am done with BB.

Eh, the unit that I used was pretty good. I found it much better than a friends S3 for the time I used it. The only let-down is the design and materials used.

I've had my Z10 for a little more than a week, and I have been quite impressed with the OS. I'm a first-time BB user, but I have had quite a few Android flagship, iPhones, and three WP phones. I'm not sure I will ever look at those three A's BB10 peers again. Android is just broken and slow, by comparison, and iOS and WP lack the horsepower.

Oh another good looking device! Good luck Nokia! One thing I like on Nokia is their maps and navigation.

Brick covered by tiles from the top is a good combination for flooring not for a smartphone ;-)

nokia already late in dual core competition and its quad core era (octa in case of samsung) and you start dreaming a Full HD screen from Nokia....

that's where your wrong it doesn't matter if it's dual core or quadcore or even single core as long as the performance is good i could have an os programmed by 2 guys that is crappy and buggy running on quadcore and it will still be slow and buggy on the other uand i could have a nicely programmed os that will run extremely smoothly
examples: MeeGo runs extremely smoothly on my n9
wp7/8 both run on 90fps on dual core while android on quad-core and ios on dual core run on 60fps

Boom, that makes perfect sense. All these android phones sporting quad and octo core processors. Windows Phone, MeeGo and iOS need dual core to run as fast, or even faster.

bet you havent even tried wp8, all people like you do is senseless closed minded hate

get over it, wp8 is growing and gives people another choice instead of just android or ios

sure meego was promising but move on stop living in the past. besides you dont know what makes a successful business.

i really tried WP, iOS, Meego, symbian (use too much) And android .............

WP is limited
iOS is restricted
meego is no more
symbian is dead
Android is my priority

Sorry but the design does not impress me. Too much bezel and just bland looking. I've seen so much better from Nokia.

Anything that isn't a brick is a HUGE improvement over the 920.

Anyone who tells 185g heavy and 10.7mm thick rectangle qualifies as a brick needs to work on their physique. Anything that comes out of your mouth not bashing anything not samsung is a huge achievement.

I was expecting Nokia to release a real competitor for Galaxy S4. Its not HD, its not quad core Its not 5 inch. Its no way close to S4 :(

Windows Phone doesnt need that much to run, even iPhone 5 is still running duo core processor. Only those on Android cares so much about specs in pure numbers. A midrange windows phone's default IE browser itself is faster than the quad core Exynos variant of Galaxy S3.

The specs upgrade to quad core will only happen for the next generation of windows phone devices due out this Oct-December.

i hope it never gets 5 inch ever why on earth you people even go for 5 inch phones if u cant even use it with one hand

That's because WP apps don't run on Java. Quad cores & its computation power don't say sh*t.
I hope Google will make the android apps run natively on the OS just like the other Linux & Unix based OS (iOS, BB10, ubuntu, Tizen, etc.), not using Java. Just my hope...

It's also because wp8 isn't as powerful as android.. It does so much less than android..
