We've previously covered the mistakes of sales teams at numerous retailers and outlets in multiple regions around the world. The latest blooper appears to be located at a Fry's store in California where a consumer spotted what appears to be the yet-to-be-announced Nokia Lumia Icon. The overall design,1080p display and more gives it away. Not only was a dummy unit on display, but it was labeled as the Nokia Lumia 928.
Instead of looking at the Lumia 928, which is a gorgeous Windows Phone, potential buyers would instead be handling the upcoming Verizon smartphone. The Nokia Icon hasn't yet made its way to the US yet, but China is already digging the Verizon exclusive Windows Phone (yes, you read that correctly). Here's a quick recap of the specifications you can expect to see:
- Qualcomm Quad-core Snapdragon 800 at 2.2 GHz
- 5 inch AMOLED display, 1080 x 1920
- 2 GB of RAM; 32 GB of internal storage (no micro SD)
- 20 MP PureView rear camera with oversampling (16 MP + 5 MP photos); Front facing camera
- Dual LED flash
- NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
- Qi wireless charging
- FM Radio
- At least three HAAC microphones
- Data Sense, NFL Mobile, Verizon Tones, VZ Navigator, My Verizon Mobile, Nokia StoryTeller, Nokia Screen Beamer
- Available colors: glossy white or matte black
We're still waiting for launch details and more, but hopefully it'll not be long now, folks. Who will be picking one up?
