Case manufacturer and on-line retailer both slip, reveal pictures of the Nokia Lumia 929
The last time we had some news on the Nokia Lumia 929, we reported that the device might be branded the Nokia Icon when it launches. The same report listed a possible January 16th release date for the phone. Before that, we showed you some exclusive pictures of the Nokia Lumia 929 that one of our loyal readers had sent to us after he purchased a prototype of the handset in Mexico. Despite all of this attention put on the model, it has yet to have been made official by Nokia and Verizon.

It seems that the manufacturer of the Armor Stand Case might not have known that the Nokia Lumia 929 has yet to have been announced, as pictures of the device wearing the case were revealed on the Wireless Ground website. Perhaps the latter shares some of the blame as well, for actually posting the pictures.

The case itself happens to look as though it could offer protection for the phone, thanks to its two layers. The first is made of silicon and protects your Lumia 929 if you accidentally drop it. The second layer is made of hard plastic and not only offers more protection, it also provides a grip so your butterfingers won't be an issue. The case includes a stand that allows you to prop up your handset in order to watch movies, television shows and other videos.

Originally priced at $19.95, Wireless Ground has the accessory priced at just $11.95. And while that is all well and good, the main point here is that we have more pictures of the Nokia Lumia 929 to stare at before the phone has even been introduced. If the rumored January 16th launch date is legit, we still could be a couple of weeks away from Nokia and Verizon making the phone official.

Until the other toy manufacturers release (and start leaking about) the toys they are going to have in 2014. The L929s time came and went before it was even released. Just one more example of how carrier exclusives are Nokia-soft's biggest FAIL.

Ok, I have to agree with you about the carrier exclusives.. I mean they could at least be temporary.. A version of the 1520, and 929, should be at least on the three largest carriers here in the US, and should be available worldwide.. I believe this would help out with adoption much more..

Aside OS, which is question of taste and preferance, this is stunning phone. I'm still not fan of WP, but I might think differently after year of two, if it still exists then. I just hope that Microsoft is not going to screw Nokia hardware in the future.

Too bad it's only available in the US, because the Lumia 1520 is too big and this is the right phone for everyone.

Why would the 1520 be too big for you❔

Nothing I hate more than when someone feels the need to speak for everyone. It may be the right phone for you, but keep your generalizations out of it.
