We have an interesting conversation going on over in the Windows Phone Central forums debating on whether or not the new Verizon Nokia Icon is too boxy.

WPCentral member Keith Petrovich poses the question after visiting the local Microsoft Store. The lack of colors also comes into question after seeing all the color choices with the Lumia 1520 and 1020 models.

The Nokia Lumia Icon (aka Lumia 929) is no secret. The handset, destined for Verizon, has been leaked and known for months now. It was first known as the Lumia 929 and leaked around mid-September on a Chinese site. Since then we’ve seen video hands-on of the device and were even given some exclusive shots of the 1080P Windows Phone. We also shared all the specs of the flagship Verizon handset.

Now we’ve got some photos of upcoming cases for the Lumia Icon. That can only meant its release is near.

The Lumia 929 (or Icon, as it's been referred as) is yet to be released by Nokia, but there have been numerous stories, rumours and leaks teasing consumers. Not only that, but China has already seen the Windows Phone be made available, even though it's a Verizon exclusive. The question we'd like to have you all answer is: will you be picking one up when it's eventually released?

We've previously covered the mistakes of sales teams at numerous retailers and outlets in multiple regions around the world. The latest blooper appears to be located at a Fry's store in California where a consumer spotted what appears to be the yet-to-be-announced Nokia Lumia Icon. The overall design,1080p display and more gives it away. Not only was a dummy unit on display, but it was labeled as the Nokia Lumia 928.

Good news for those on Verizon and yearning for the official version of Update 3 aka GDR3. Verizon is now pushing out that update (3 for the OS, 1 for firmware) to all HTC 8X Windows Phones now, though of course you could manually force-check the update. We hear nearly 1 GB of spare storage may be needed to install the update, which should be done over Wi-Fi.

Update 3 brings a cluster of new features to Windows Phone, including Driving Mode, Bluetooth fixes, enabled Wi-Fi during device setup and of course, screen orientation lock. You can read the full changes in our Update 3 article to learn more.

As expected, Verizon Wireless has just pulled the wraps off the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, the first Nokia tablet running Windows RT 8.1. The tablet will run at the retail price of $499 but for a “limited time”, users can sign a two-year contract and receive $100 off. We reported on that sale price two weeks ago and sure enough, Verizon is coming through with the deal. 

The device will drop on Thursday, November 21—one day before AT&T.

Update 1PM ET: As expected, Microsoft has pulled the pre-order page

Microsoft has been busy lately with listing preorders on their Store and then pulling them once we report on it. That tells us that these pages are made in advance but are not meant to go public quite yet. Still, we have reports that Microsoft are honoring preorders that are placed before the pages are pulled.

This morning we have the Verizon Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet available—in both red or black—for $499 with no contract. That price falls in line with what we are expecting, although we did reveal that Verizon will be offering the Nokia tablet for $399 on a two-year contract.

Although Nokia had a lot to announce a few weeks ago in Abu Dhabi, one of those devices not mentioned was the Nokia Lumia 929, destined for Verizon. That device is said to be in carrier testing right now and it could be released between Thanksgiving and the beginning of next year.

The Nokia Lumia 929 is a custom phone built for Verizon, featuring a 5-inch 1080P AMOLED display. It’s in many ways just a bigger, more powerful Lumia 928, as it features a Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 CPU and updated internals.

Now, high quality photos of this device have been revealed to Windows Phone Central and we have the inside scoop of Verizon’s flagship Lumia.

Nokia World has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the Finnish company doesn’t have more devices up their sleeves. One of those is the Lumia 929, a custom phone for Verizon that is due to land any time between now and Q1. Not much is known about the Lumia 929 except that it is probably a 5-inch 1080P device running a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and a 20 MP rear PureView camera.

Now, a leaker in the Windows Phone Central forums who goes by the name of ‘Falorin’ has posted a new photo and even a hands on vide with the mystery device.
