Verizon’s Nokia Lumia 928 to be offered with $25 Windows Phone Store credit. 6 inch Lumia phablet coming in Q4?
In the US, the Lumia 928 should be available via Verizon Wireless before the end of this month – as several leaked images have previously suggested. Now EVleaks says Verizon and Nokia will offer the 928 with $25 Windows Phone Store credit. However, there is still no word on how much the smartphone itself will cost. AT&T is selling the Lumia 920 for only $99.99 on contract, so maybe Verizon will go with this sort of low price strategy, too.
Although Nokia hasn’t officially confirmed the existence of the Lumia 928, it looks like the handset was used to shoot video at a private concert hosted by the company in New York earlier this week. Or at least it was a new device with Xenon flash on the back.
Lumia 928 aside, British website Mobile Today has it that Nokia will introduce a 6 inch Windows Phone 8 Lumia phablet in the fourth quarter of the year. Apparently, the device will cost between £400 and £500 ($622 – $788). A few Weeks ago, the Financial Times reported that Nokia’s first phablet would bring “more advanced specifications than Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note.” Unfortunately, that’s all we know about the upcoming device for now.
