I want the Lumia 1820 ... please!

I have patiently waited for the 929 ... but since I am bored with that ... release the 1820 instead!!!

Verizon's choices for Windows phones is pathetic.  They need a paradigm shift.  Release a Windows phone that is cutting edge, that will create a market buzz.  Something that will make websites, and other carriers customers, jealous.

I have been a customer of VZW, since phones were the size of shoe boxes ... the last VZW phone I had, that made people stop and ask me, 'What's that?', was the StarTac.  I am sick of being reward for my many years of loyalty, with last years technology.

You'll be lucky to see that phone the second half of the year and the way VZW moves, most likely not till 2015.

The 929 will be the next phone until 8.1 is released sometime in May then Nokia/Microsoft will come out with their next flagship phone.

Get in line. Verizon will release the 929 sometime this year as stated above. A 1820 is years and years away from Verizon.

If you want a new W8 phone, your best best is to switch to AT&T.

The 929 is a miniature 1520 ... which AT&T had last year.  I will not get in line to get last years technology ... lol

It does seem that Verizon could care less about W8 ... or most hardware for that matter?

The don't care about W8 phones at all I don't believe. As long as they have the newest iPhone and solid Androids they don't care. I was surprised about the release of the Z30 (BB)

They might as well just not offer W8 phones at all.......

Please explain by what you mean 'last years technology".  The 1520 was available for purchase on 11/8/2013 so it will be 3 months old next week.  It can't be the processor, Snapdragon 800 is the best available to date, quad-core to boot; the 805 won't be in devices no earlier than the middle of the year.

Than with that logic then 929 isn't last years technology it's this years technology

No doubt the 929 will be a 2014 product, but if all the parts are from 2013, then it is last years technology.  No mater when it is released.

Under your logic, you could take parts used in making a 1950 Buick,  and assemble them today as a new Verizon Buick, and call it 2014 technology

So what "new" technology came out this year that would warrant it being "new" for the 929?

And I would make a killing selling that Verizon Buick
