Report: Nokia Lumia 928 to launch on Verizon with $25 Windows Phone Store credit
Verizon's Nokia Lumia 928 is expected to be introduced on May 14th when Nokia hosts a press event in London. Already, third party accessory manufacturers have started selling their wares for the smartphone. Now comes a report from @evleaks that says that Verizon will be giving out a $25 credit for the Windows Phone Store to buyers of the Nokia Lumia 928.

The idea behind giving out the gift card is to help those coming to the Windows Phone 8 flavored handset from another platform, repurchase premium apps that they are abandoning when they leave their current phone. Microsoft is doing everything possible to make switching to Windows Phone smooth and easy. For example, their Switch to Windows Phone app for Android takes the current list of downloaded apps on an Android handset and looks for the Windows Phone version of each one. If an exact match cannot be found, the closest match will be suggested. That list is then sent to the cloud from where it can be retrieved from the newly purchased Windows Phone model.

The Nokia Lumia 928 is expected to offer similar specs as the Nokia Lumia 920, but with a slightly thinner footprint and a Xenon flash.
