    Of course the 929 wasn't announced. It is a VZW exclusive that will be announced later. VZW doesn't usually participate in these big announcement events. They may do their own launch event, though more likely they will release info on them less than two weeks before they are released.

    It's the same for the 525, which I've heard is the VZW version of the 520/521. They will drop at around the same time, probably around Thanksgiving. The 929 is the 1520 with a smaller screen and more storage. Verizon will be offering 32GB and may be offering Verizon cloud storage of some kind that will not count against your data plan if accessed.

    I think the 822 may be EOLed. Also not sure if the 928 will stay around after they clear out inventory. It may be just the 525 and 929, though I'm not clear on the 822 being ended as VZW wants a low end, a midrange, and high end. The 822 has a flash whereas the 525 doesn't, as far as I know.

    Thank you, MacPhisto! It's great to actually hear something about this device. I'm ecstatic. A top end device in a convenient size AND the 525? That's a huge win for Verizon.

    I'm not planning to get a phone until Dec 2014 when my lease is up, but I really want Nokia to release this phone this year. If the Windows Phone environment is to continue to grow, they must keep up the pace of Android. They need a flagship phone for 2013. And the 1520 isn't it. It's a niche phone at 6". They need a 5" or less phone that can replace the 920/922/928. And hopefully lose some of it's weight. Hope to really see the 929 and its variants for AT&T and other carriers soon.

    I'm glad this thread exists since I cannot find any updates on the 929 on twitter or anywhere else for that matter. I tried getting nokia to spill the beans on twitter but they didn't bite. I told them I was sitting in an apple store and wanted an answer so I know whether to buy a 5s or not. All they replied was "we have no new announcements at this time". Bummer.

    We're all doing the same. Keep asking and keep an eye out!

    If we hit mid-November with no word from VZW on the 929, I'll have to buy the 928. The 8X's texting bug is too disrupting and I can't deal with it for much longer!
    Don't do it, I have a 928 and it has some bugs as well. Plus, I'm testing out T-Mobile for work and got a 925 and its a much, much better phone. Hard to pick up my 928 now (so using a 5s in its place)

    Phone History (hopefully in order): Samsung SGH-D407 > AT&T (HTC) Tilt > Sony Ericsson W580 > Blackberry Curve 8900 > Sony Ericsson C901 > HTC Touch Pro 2 > Blackberry 9700 > iPhone 3GS > Motorola Defy > Blackberry 9650 > iPhone 4 > Nokia E71 > Dell Venue Pro > HTC Titan > HTC Titan II > Lumia 900 + Samsung Galaxy Exhibit > Nokia Lumia 920 + Nokia Lumia 521 + Motorola RAZR V3xx

    That would be amazing, but I sort of doubt it. The reason that battery fits in the 1320 and 1520 is because the phones are very large and cover a lot of surface area. The 929 only has a five inch screen.

    Though I will say that the Sony Xperia Z1 also has a five inch screen, is 8.5mm thick, and has a 3000mAh battery.
