Nokia Lumia 929 images appear; model will tell us plenty about Windows Phone demand
Serial leaker evleaks is at it again, showing off what appears to be the Nokia Lumia 929 for Verizon. This is a smaller version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 handset with a 5 inch AMOLED screen offering 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor in on board with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. The 20.7MP PureView snapper on back has a ZEISS lens, dual-LED flash and supports the Nokia Camera app. It also includes dual-capture mode (5MP and 16MP) and includes OIS for stable video capture. The phone will be available in both black and white. Images of the phone already leaked out earlier this month including the version done up in white.

This, more so than the 6 inch Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, is the phone to watch to see if Windows Phone is about to make a move on Android and/or iOS. With similar specs to some of the high-end Android phones now available, we will be able to see on a level playing field whether Microsoft really does have something brewing here. And if so, we should see developers start adding Windows Phone versions of their apps to the Windows Phone Store.

Oh! We forgot to mention the built-in Qi wireless charging that comes with the Nokia Lumia 929 and we should also let you know that the phone should be launched via Big Red during the third week in November. It is expected to be priced at $199 with a signed two-year contract and $599 off-contract.
