Black Nokia Lumia 928 sold out at Verizon and Radio Shack

Black Nokia Lumia 928 sold out at Verizon and Radio Shack
With Radio Shack offering the Verizon branded Nokia Lumia 928 for just $49.99 with a signed two-year contract, it should be no surprise that the device is on back order and ships in 7 to 10 days. Meanwhile, over at Verizon, the phone is sold out even with a higher $99.99 on contract price tag.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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™ ®

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?
