Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon finally gets official, out on February 20 for $199.99

After an amazingly large number of leaks, the Nokia Lumia Icon for Verizon has finally been officially announced today. The smartphone is a high-end offering that is meant to compete with the flagships of the competition, and its specs are incredibly similar to those of the Lumia 1520 phablet that was unveiled back in October.

Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon may arrive on February 20, with pre-orders starting on February 12

Verizon’s Nokia Lumia Icon (previously known as the Lumia 929) has been a very long time coming. So long, in fact, that we’re frankly amazed that it’s still not available.
