Tweet says high end Nokia Lumia model coming to Verizon
Verizon customers looking for a top-shelf Windows Phone 8 model have had just one to consider. Because the Nokia Lumia 920 is an AT&T exclusive in the U.S., the HTC Windows Phone 8X is the only Windows Phone 8 high-end model available to those using the nation's largest carrier. Verizon customers who would rather have a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 model are stuck with the mid-range Nokia Lumia 822 which is the carrier's exclusive variant of the Nokia Lumia 820.

But something is brewing, something good for Verizon customers who would like a high-end Nokia Lumia to choose from. A tweet from The Verge's Tom Warren, whose beat happens to be Microsoft, says that "If you're on Verizon and you want a high-end Nokia Lumia. You're gonna be happy soon." Could this mean that the Nokia Lumia 920 or a similar version, is coming to Big Red?

The Nokia Lumia 920 has been red hot lately with long lines greeting the device in China not once, but twice. Nokia has been running a world-wide television campaign urging smartphone users to switch from their current platform, and adding its flagship phone to the nation's largest carrier while having the ad playing on television should generate plenty of interest for the handset at Verizon. But keep in mind that the tweet doesn't mention the Nokia Lumia 920 by name and until we hear something official, keep that salt shaker by your side.

Any Verizon customers out there dying to get their hands on a version of the Nokia Lumia 920?

L922 based on the numbing scheme of the L822.

Hopefully Verizon will not destroy the look of the phone with its silly branding.

There will be a V logo on every phone VZW sells. It is the price of admission.

AT&T has a 6-month exclusive on the 920, so who knows if that means no 922. I'm hoping for a T-Mobile 920 (910?)

This is very good news for Verizon customers. Oh how I wished Nokia had released a top of the line phone on all networks.

Cant we get love for both RIM and WP/Nokia? I did say if I ever got tired of Android I would go WP....but I forgot about RIM. Even tho it wont have the hardware choices of WP....I need my phones to work as phones first. And to me thats Motorola, Nokia and RIM. So for me it wont be much of choice for WP. It would be Nokia or nothing.

This is not true, Verizon customers are not eagerly waiting nor have intrest on Nokia WP8, T-mobile and Sprint does not want this! Even in Europe 4 out of 3 carriers are refusing to sell this phone due to imitation of iOs and Android. Look what has happened to WP7 sales were in decline, so what big difference would WP8 be....? Few incremental update! Even in Uak only 2 carriers are stocking this copycat phone, surely it speaks for itself!

How is WP a copycat of ios and android? If you believe that than you also have to believe that android and ios copy each other as well. The truth is all competitors copy each other to something extent. If their competitor offers something that consumers want, you can bet that they'll offer something similar to get a piece of the pie. One company offers anti-lock brakes, so will the competition. One company offers a TV with 1080p, their competition will follow suit. If a there is demand for a product, there will be similar products offered by other companies. The more platforms and companies involved in any industry, the better it is for consumers. It gives them choice, the opportunity to find something tailored to their needs. And if one company sells something substandard, it gives them another option. I don't root for any company to get ran out of business, unless their business practices harm the consumer and they don't try to do better. Who's to say that one of these companies that some people are rooting to go under wont come up with something truly revolutionary in the future. Look at webOS, if they could have caught on who's to say they wouldn't be right up there with android and ios. Bit with them gone that's just one less avenue for for innovation to occur.

I'm a big Android fan...and I agree with you... I dont see WP being a copy of Android and iOS. WP UI is too unique. What some ppl forget is Win Mo was out before Android was even thought of.....many features of Android were already used by MS. How is WP a copy of Android? Its using features that were there in Win Mo. What I will say tho is WP is a mix of iOS/iPhone and the old Win Mo for storage. I feel WP shoulda went all the way in 1 direction, not this hybrid mix they are doing.
