Nokia Lumia 929 for Verizon is codenamed
We've seen a couple of leaked pictures of the upcoming Nokia Lumia 929 for Verizon, and we have a general idea what to expect on specs. But, now we have the answer to a question we know that all of you were curious about: what is the codename for the next Windows Phone flagship for Verizon? It turns out that the codename for the device is "Icon". This little bit of trivia comes from prolific leaker Evleaks, who apparently doesn't have much going on these days. 

It's unclear exactly when the Lumia 929 is going to hit Verizon, but what we do know is that the device is going to be a "GDR3" update to the current Nokia Lumia 928. By that, we mean that the hardware is getting bumped up to the levels supported by the Windows Phone GDR3 update: a Snapdragon 800 processor and a 5-inch 1080p display. The device is also expected to carry a 20MP camera similar to that on the Lumia 1520, and 2GB of RAM. 

We're sure that Nokia wants the device on shelves before Christmas, but we'll have to wait and see. There have been multiple release dates rumored and passed by without seeing the device, so there's really no telling when it will be released.

aw wish it came to Sprint. This sounds like a great Windows Phone. Can't wait to see it officially announced.

Like the honesty on the uncertainty of the release date.

In a long over do time it will. I think Samsung will come out with a flagship next yr. They have to rethink their stratagey. They can take advantage of the GDR3 with their hardware. After all they did for quite sometime supply Apple. Also from a business standpoint the CFO must know their buying the dipers & formula for Microsoft

Why do carriers act like this is a new phone when it's the exact same Lumia 929 as all of the rest?

Funny all of it I'm still getting one hahahaha. & I was issued a business phone a 5S. I keep my work & personal stuff seperate.
That said the 5S is ok. People complian of their apps & everything else. It's no different than any other device aside the looks but even that is nothing cause it's in a case.
However my moded WP7 functions & is integrated way better. Can't wait to port over when it comes out. Their is big support for GDR3.
Let the trolls grovel like a bum trying to sway a hot chick on a beach. Its never gonna happen.
