We've been keeping tabs on the Nokia Lumia 928 for a while, but it has never been confirmed in any official capacity until today. The Lumia 928 quietly made an appearance in a two-page advertisment spread in Vanity Fair, as well as on a simple page on the Nokia Web site. It appears that the 928 is focusing on the camera:
Nokia exclusive PureView technology, with Optical Image Stabilization and high-end Carl Zeiss optics let you capture and share amazing blur-free photos and videos, even in low light conditions.
As expected, Verizon Wireless will be the carrier for the Lumia 928. Expect a nice, official unveiling to take place a week from today, on May 14th. We aren't expecting the internals to be too different from the Nokia Lumia 920.
It looks like Verizon Wireless is set to finally offer the Nokia Lumia 928, giving Verizon a flagship Windows Phone 8 device, starting next month. While no formal announcements have been made, two people familiar with the details have confirmed it. Since flagship Lumia smartphones in the US have typically been AT&T exclusives, it'll be interesting to see what the Verizon effect will have on sales. The Lumia 928 will have an aluminum enclosure rather than the polycarbonate Lumias that we're used to, with a 4.5-inch display, 8-megapixel camera, and wireless charging capabilities.
We open up the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 smartphone in this episode. It's the flagship model available from AT&T, sporting a PureMotion HD+ display, 4G LTE, and PureView camera with optical image stabilization and Carl Zeiss lens. You can pick up the Nokia Lumia 920 from AT&T from $99.99. It's a bit heavy, but the phone looks great, the camera is fantastic, and for $100, it's hard to beat the value.

Oh man--looks like the Nokia Lumia 920 is set to drop in November, and it's going to be an AT&T exclusive. That's unfortunate, since it's the new hotness from Nokia that Microsoft may just be hanging it's hat on as it pertains to Windows Phone 8, so it's a little odd that the 4G LTE smartphone won't be available on Verizon, the company that has the largest LTE network by far. The Lumia 820 should launch alongside the 920, but that is more of a mid-range phone rather than a top-of-the-line model, and that one should make an appearance on multiple carriers. That said, if you're interested in one of the colorful (yellow, black, cyan, red, white) 920 models, you're gonna have to go with AT&T come this November. No word yet on pricing.
Be sure to check out the top 5 features of Lumia 920.
Yesterday Nokia announced its new Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 smartphone. If you're in the market for a new device, this is one you'll want to take a look at. While there was no specific launch date named, there were a few features that definitely caught our eye. In fact, we've compiled the top five Nokia Lumia 920 features for you after the break.
This morning Nokia officially announced the Lumia 920, its new flagship Windows Phone 8 device, and it's a beauty. The Lumia 920 sports a 1280x768 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ screen, 1.5GHz dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor, NFC, wireless charging, 8-megapixel PureView camera with 1080p video recording, and a 2,000mAh battery, all powered by Windows Phone 8. Nokia says that it's the fastest LCD that it's ever put in a smartphone, and it also has something called "Super Sensitive Touch," which just means that you can interact with the display even if you're wearing gloves. Nice.
The Lumia 920 will be available in five striking colors, our favorite of which has to be yellow. The PureView camera isn't the same that the 808 smartphones boasts at 41-megapixels, but Nokia argues that it's all about the optics and software behind it, and that the Lumia 920 will take stunning images, even in areas of low light.
Built-in wireless charging is another welcome feature, and the company will have a couple of wireless charging accessories that sell separately. Expect the Lumia 920 to hit stores in Q4 2012 in both LTE and HSPA+.
Nokia is set to reveal it's Lumia 920 line of Windows Phone 8 devices tomorrow, but we're seeing a sneak peek today thanks to a purported leak. We're already expecting that Nokia's incredible PureView camera technology will make an appearance, but now we also get to see what colors the device will sport. That's white, black, gray, red, and a striking yellow. No word on if all colors will be available at launch, or if they'll be split between carriers.
