Here at CES we didn’t expect any big Windows Phone news. So far that prediction is holding true. No new devices, no new software, and not much to report on the Windows Phone front. However, among the thousands of cases on display at CES, one caught our eye. A case from Incipio for the Nokia Lumia 929 was on display (see all Lumia Icon Cases).
We shared with you the full specs (and some nice photos) of the Lumia 929 back in November. Since then, we’ve been waiting patiently for Verizon and Nokia to officially announce the device, which as we understand, will be called and marketed as the Lumia Icon. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s came and went and the device is nowhere near being available as far as we can tell.
Specs for the Lumia Icon include a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.2 GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (no microSD support), and a 2510 mAh battery. There is Qi wireless charging built-in the Lumia Icon and the camera features a 20 MP PureView camera with dual LED flash.
Speaking of the Nokia Lumia Icon, the webpage that will eventually allow you to get the phone from Verizon is being tested. Some eagle-eyed forum members spotted the page and shared it with the community. The page confirms the specs that we've already shared about the Lumia Icon. The price is listed as $777, but that's just a place holder on the test page and not the final price. Could the Lumia Icon finally be out soon? We'll see.
Thanks for the tip pci2k!
