Unannounced Nokia Lumia 929 purchased in Mexico
One of our loyal readers in Mexico has been able to obtain the Nokia Lumia 929. The interesting thing is that this model has yet to be unveiled by Nokia. As we've said before, this could end up being one of the most important Windows Phone models ever released. Thanks to the GDR3 update, the Nokia Lumia 929 matches up specs-wise with any of the high-end Android models. And since it carries a 5 inch screen instead of the 6 inches found on the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, there is a good chance that the Lumia 929 will be an easier sale than the possibly unwieldy-to-some Lumia 1520.

The Nokia Lumia 929 is a litmus test for the platform. It will be the first phone (as opposed to phablet) that will match up a Windows Phone model with Android flavored models like the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z1 and LG G2. Windows Phone has recently picked up market share globally, and if Microsoft's mobile OS is going to challenge the duopoly at the top, this will be a phone to watch.

The latest information we have is that the phone will be launched via Verizon (where it will be an exclusive in the U.S.) in mid to late December. That seems to be confirmed by the launch date of some accessories for the phone that Amazon is releasing on December 20th. In the meantime, you can checkout some screenshots from the Nokia Lumia 929, pictures of the device and pictures taken with the 20MP PureView camera on the back of the handset. We're sure that there are some readers jealous that our lucky tipster was able to stumble onto the Nokia Lumia 929. But don't be upset. You could be holding your own Nokia Lumia 929 in the not too distant future. Also keep in mind that this could be a prototype and not a final production version.


Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

You're right, it's not racist. The comment doesn't mention any race or racial stereotype.

Are you mad? He is clearly talking about how conflict that mexico is currently undergoing, and in the process he's making it comical, I'm from Mexico and I find it offensive, since one of my uncles died in the crossfire from the cartel.

It is not racist, you have feelings of the matter, nothing more. Family of mine died in a gang war, from the usa. If I was to use their name of the gang, aka, cartel, would I be called a racist? No.

I could label tons of racist jokes, I am 'brown' and I have more racial jokes for us browns than others.

I know partnerships with carriers helps, but exclusiveness and dat freaking logo (that is however objectively awul) will not help Nokia and WP in gaining market share.

We are not racing drivers that needs to spot theirs sponsors. Jeez.

Will never buy something that born beautiful and then needed to be destroyed by a stupid deal.

And you're not doing it 5 times, either.
The aluminum trim is very iPhone-esque, but it looks thicker. I'm going to have to see better photos before I decide what I think about the looks. The 928 isn't that great looking either, but it just happens to be the best "regular" WP there is. The 929 will be that, too. I wish they kept the Xenon flash though.

MicroUSB port looks pretty small compared to phone. Most difficult is to go for the Lumia 929 or wait for MWC.

I sure dont understand all the whiney babies that complain about the logo, and complain that "Verizon" is the bad guy here. the VAST percentage of phones have the carrier logo on it. If you pick Verizon, you did it for a reason, and why wouldnt you want people to know it. or are all of you whiney babies the same ones that voted for the "Obama Care Scammer" but afraid to admit it. I dont know anyone that will admit they voted for him, but he sure seems to be in the big white house.

As for Verizon... THey are not teasing us. they have never announced, promissed, or indicated there is such a phone. all the reports are speculation and leaks that are not approved by Verizon. They are most likely still making sure everything works on these phones with Verizons system, and maybe even waiting for Microsoft or some other 3rd party for upgrades or fixes. Would you rather them sell you whiney babies a phone that is not ready for prime time. Another reason they dont announce it early, is because they most likely have a lot of inventory of the 928. If they officially announce it... NOBODY will buy the 928, and they will be stuck with a lot of unsold phones. Appearently, none of the people crying about Verizon have never owned a sucessful business.

If you dont like Verizon, and the way they do things, go somewhere else... Verizon really doesnt care about a dozen people being so damn childish, and would rather not deal with you anyway. you would be way more trouble to them anyway.

Those that are on anoher carrier and bitching about this phone and about Verizon...... Well, you need to bitch to your carrier. IF you can get signal..........

That was a mouth full. By the way which is the lesser of 2 evils Shutting the govt down or Obama Care DOE!!!!! & How quickly we forget the Bush Jr era. I voted Obama & am glad I did. However I take a moderate republican over the govt destroying tea party any day. As it stand now DEMS are for the People & Pub are for the rich people only. The only ones who stand a chance against H Cliton is Paul Rayan & Christy. You sound LAME & ignorant if all you have is Obama care. SO save that for the correct forum.

Back to reality
Make no mistake Big Red is teasing us with their leaks If they wanted to be hush about it they could have pulled an Apple & we wouldn't get anything until an official word. Sh!!!!!t sell the phone & send a patch to fix the issues they do it all the time.

Also I hear no 1 riffin on their carrier. The 1's complaining always complain so ignore them

As far as pricing; Its X-Mas. The 928 has been out long enough to be cut to 99-49-or even free they can follow the same model as ios & android. The 929 $199 it's a top tier device, 928 is a tier II, the 6 & 5 series are tier III price them as such.
You sound like you have personal issued dude hahahah no offense

Everyone here just wants to spend some $$$ on the right device at the right time

Verizon has no reason to "Leak" and "Tease". the leaks are coming from the people that are associated with the company in one way or another, and they are breaking there agreement with the copmpnay by spilling the beans early. If the phone came out with problems, everyone would be bitching and moaning. and saying how crappy of a phone it is... so everyone needs to keep there pants on and relax. all the crying in the world is not going to make Verizon release the phone before its ready operationally, or for good business reasons.

Dems are for people that cant take care of there own life. Reps are for those that actually creat jobs for those that want to work. Obama Care is going to be a Cluster F***. Im in the medical industry and involved in ALL sides, so I know what I am talking about. Wait till hospitals start closing down, and doctors leave the profession. If you want to debate this privately, we can.

This pretty much sounds like riffin (per your context)

Wonder who that was.... And there are forum all over saying things just like that.

You could have bought the test phone like the guy in Mexico did... of course the guy that sold it will probably get in trouble. And I am guessing the one in mexico will not work, nor will it ever work. I am sure Verizon will not let it happen.

Like I said wrong forum. When you become of age and understand society as a whole you'll be singing a different tune. With that you just stated my case & your ignorance. I have no idea who or what you are or where you come from or what corner penthouse or shoebox you live in. Everybody who can work let them, heck make them. Your perception is perversed. Medical huh_ Where did you go to school The Concrete Jungle or School of The Hard Knocks. So people who work & don't have adequate coverage or your grandmother on SSI should be shunned_ RIGHT!!! When both parties are able to sit at the round table & work out a viable plan then you can open your mouth. Its Romneys plan that Obama is using Its working in his state. Like I said at this current time DEMS are for the people All of us, Repubs are for Rich only. (Lincoln changed the world the 1st Repub) Don't be a fool if you had a choice to care for 100 people or 1000 which would do. They can make it work.
The current congress is spending more time dismantling & blocking legislation because of who the President is not because of what he is doing. Do your home work healthcare has been an issue since Roosevelt & for both parties

Kart Seriously what are you smoking If Vz had all these test phones to sell their & give out a whole lot more than a couple of people with washed out pics would be showing them off. Those people are probably Vz testers or employees under heavy guidelines.
So any leak unless its a gag order is a leak intended to get attention.

Just like the numbnut who left his new iPhone at a bar & Apple offered a reward to return it. a few yrs back trying to retract all info on it.
You don't see Vz doing that espically setting a date for accessories for mid Dec.

& last I checked I wasn't complaining about the phone or Vz but not having it now. Vz knows the people want it set a date & sell it. That's a big difference

Stop hatin!!! Like I said you sound like you have issues you need counseling

CEMIII. Seems like you are not interested in taking the conversation private. Seems like your more interested in Grandstanding and embarrassing yourself than having an intelligent conversation.
