Verizon’s Nokia Lumia 929 leaked

Nokia Lumia 929

Before Microsoft completes acquisition of Nokia, the Finnish company wants to release a few devices and has even scheduled an event for October 22nd. One of the things they’ll launch may be a Windows RT tablet codenamed Sirius (aka Lumia 2520) and another – Lumia 929, which has just been leaked and which is heading to Verizon Wireless.

Compliments to EVleaks, we know this smartphone will be available in black and white, sporting a fairly large (1080p) screen while running Windows Phone 8 GDR3. In addition — according to TheVerge — the Lumia 929 will also come with a 20-megapixel PureView camera on the back.

Little else is known about this model but it’s safe to assume it will pack 4G LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS and a ton of built-in storage. We’re just not convinced the Finns will manage to convince enough users to buy their hardware now that they’ve become a part of Microsoft. Or I’m wrong? What do you think?

    Now that it’s part of MS I’m sure the phones will be around and supported for a longer term. After all MS has more to lose now.

    Microsoft has failed to make inroads into the tablet market with the RT and the Surface Pro. Will their new versions turn things around?
    As a real productivity tool the Surface 2 with its new and much faster Intel processor, deserves recognition. Apple and Android tablets on the other hand, don’t come close where enteprise tasks are required.
    Will the new Nokia/Microsoft 1520 tablet also be a business tool or will the emphasis be on the mainstream consumer?
    As for the Nokia 929, the 1080p screen and 2GB of ram will assist with sales, but no quad core cpu or an SD card slot , won’t. Unless of course there is substantial onboard storage.
