I pinged @NokiaPureView yesterday just digging for info. I asked if there was a MicroSD slot in the upcoming Lumia 928 for Verizon and here is the reply.
And it appears from them, it does. I subbmited this as a news tip yesterday but, I guess WPCentral does not see this as important news. I think this is great news, FINALLY a high end WP8 device WITH expandable memory.
Anyone want to to buy a Minty HTC 8x ? :)
Edit: I also asked about release date, April and got some interesting info and maybe newer processor.
newer CPU too ??? OMG !

The HTC 8X is a nice phone (I currently have) but, it's not a high end with only 16gb. If it had a MicroSD or even 32gb, I would not be looking to replace it after 2 months. The limits are just too much.

After dealing with SD card on my Samsung Epic, slow refresh slow app loads, slow boot while it tries to read it, i'll take a 32 gb phone with no sd card. I only have 6 or so GB of music that I travel with, so that is more than enough for pics, loading a movie or two for the kids now and then and applications. I know why the OEMs are not having them, so the speed is there at all times from the faster onboard flash memory.
I hope it is 32 PLUS SD card.. then I would only have to use the SD card for movies and such, it would also be easier to move the media to it from a PC/laptop

Maybe it's me but, if I pay for an app, I should be able to have it installed at all times INCASE I want to play it. No ?

Nothing to see here folks, move along. There is nothing official. It is NOT a "Nokia press site, owned by Nokia who is leaking info about Nokia items". That's not how this industry works.
They have a site that is so poorly written, it makes WMPU look like Shakespeare. http://thisisnokia.wordpress.com/ They just throw ever single rumor (often uncredited) on to the wall and see what sticks. Complete nonsense.
(Note, I'm not denying that a microSD slot may be on the device but it is not confirmed yet, even by people I know who have seen it--since it has reportedly 32GB of memory, some say it won't)

I can confirm that the guy from twitter is not from Nokia. I asked the same guy prior to the 920 being announced for AT&T if it would be coming to Verizon at the same time. The person replied and told me it was, but that did not happen. At least we know that Verizon is getting the 928 and the day time photos from it are better then the 920 day time photos based on what has been posted.

David....I can't wait for this phone to arrive at Verizon ! I am just off of contract with T-Mobile with an ailing Samsung Galaxy S 4G. I am also a NOK stockholder. I would love to pre-order a red 32 GB 928 and want to be quick on pre-ordering so that I don't have to wait to long to get my new phone. Any guess as to when Verizon will start taking pre-orders ? April 1st ?

I once bought into his info and found out quick that it was bogus. If this phone is coming out next month they have to announce it soon. Remember how much time we all had to crush the 822 before it actually came out only to find that it wasn't that bad!

When paying a premium price, you want the best for your money. When there are phones out there with Q4-2012 CPU and GPU and even Q1-2013 CPU and GPU that are 2x as fast (even if you don't need it now) for the same price. It is a bummer.
2 Years ago a lot of people, including myself, said "Who needs more than 8GB storage" and back then I was only using 2.4GB and 8GB seemed a lot. The more pictures I take, the more video I shoot, the more offline navigation I use, the more space is needed. I am now using 7.4GB.
Plus, from a marketing perspective it would be better to have a newer CPU+GPU.
