The Nokia Lumia Icon is now available with Verizon for $199 on contract, comes bearing gifts for early adopters
The wait is over for those of you who have been eyeing Nokia's new big-hitter stateside -- the Lumia Icon. The 5-incher has won itself a place into our hearts, as it proved to be quite the no-compromise device. Equipped with the same 20MP PureView snapper with ZEISS optics found on the Lumia 1520, and some bleeding edge hardware all around, the Icon will serve to reinforce Nokia's increasingly relevant portfolio. 

The Lumia Icon can be yours for $199.99 with a two-year commitment to Verizon Wireless, which is going to be the exclusive provider of the device for the US. The Icon will also be made available at the still scarce brick & mortar Microsoft Stores, and to incentivize you to make the trip to one of those, a free Nokia wireless charging accessory is being thrown in. Granted that you order before March 16th, that is. Moreover, buying the Icon will get you a $100 slashed off towards your purchase of the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet. Not a bad deal for top-shelf device.

The wireless charging makes it thick.

Almost all flagship phones these days have wireless charging. But none are as thick as this.

He's an obvious hater, don't use real arguments, kinda of pointless.

Yeah, right ! Because I am actually making a point behind my opinions and you are replying thing like 'NOT' and 'Its not.' without making constructive argument. LOL

Um the problem is you do not have arguments you have opinions and some numbers, so they do not deserve more than "NOT" .. so yea L - o - L.

You just described that I give opinions and reasons (numbers) for my theory/belief. But infact THAT IS the definition of argument: a reason or set of reasons or opinions given in support of an idea, action or theory.-wiki 'nuff said.

It's not bad at all.. I held one in the store yesterday and it's very nice.. Regardless of how thin other phones are it's in no way think.. Numbers aren't everything, and they definitely don't show how a phone looks, or fits in your hand.. This phone feels great, and your comment about thickness, and being over 30% thicker than a iPhone, shows that the worst way to gauge a device is buy written down specs alone... This phone is in no way too thick... By your way of thinking if a new iPhone came out, and it was 3mm thick, then anything 6mm would be to thick, and it never ends.. Would 3mm be to thick one day?... Not a good way of looking at things.

Maybe. It would've helped if they made the device a bit more curvy from sides. That industrial design although looks nice doesn't seem very comfortable to me at first sight. But, you could be right as well. I ll give a go when it arrives my local store, here in UK.

Fair enough.. I did notice it's thickness, but really, who cares.. It's not a thin phone, but I'm a man, not a teenage girl.. Of course I carry a 1520, so every dimension of the Icon is small to me.... I bet if the 1520 wasn't tapered it would appear to be as thick as the icon does... I'll take solidity over super thinness any day though.. That's just my opinion.

Windows phones still have no business being priced that much on contract. We are know it's going to be $99 in less than a month. You are starting to see Note 3's at that cost or less. Not a bad phone but the platform is clearly in 3rd place.

In my opinion WP can be priced at what pricepoint they choose, it's a great OS that keeps getting better. The majority of sites that ive seen the Lumia icon reviews have been positive and rightly so.

It's funny that PA love this device, and most other sites have not been very impressed by it.

Its a great for 2013 flagship but not for 2014. I'm afraid it will be out dated just in few months when all the other OEMs come out with Qhd, sd 805, etc.

13. sip1995

Qhd, sd 805 You mean the Nokia lumia 1820.

Hope the rumours are real. But nothing too extensive or credible has leaked so far. I wouldn't be that excited just yet.

That's why it is not a 2014 flagship. Its a spin-off of the Lumia 1520 which was a 2013 flagship.

So, the 2014 Corvette ZO6 is outdated because the all new 2015 model has been unveiled?.. Does the 2014 model not provide a good experience now??. ....................... You've been a Android fan too long..

28. tech2

Posts: 3487; Member since: Oct 26, 2012

You're correct but then again Z06 is not their flagship model anymore and needs to be priced accordingly. This is how all the technology around us works. Simple economics ! Now just because my Moto G runs faster than GS3 it doesn't mean Moto G should be priced $800 (off contract). The point is that technology is outdated and R&D and marketing costs are probably recovered. So the tech can now be sold at discounted price as its not the best anymore. Also, not to mention, it will struggle to compete with phones with 2k displays this year. You've been away from simple logic far too long ;)
