Nokia Icon (Lumia 929) Coming Soon

Verizon has put up a placeholder on it’s website for the new and upcoming Nokia Icon. The new Windows 8 phone has a big, but not too big (Lumia    1520), 5” screen. The placeholder price is not predictive of actual pricing ($777). Another beautiful Windows Phone device. My 4.3” screen is looking very small in comparison (HTC 8X).

Nokia is preparing to release a new 5-inch 1080p device for Verizon, and the US carrier appears to have accidentally listed the device on its website today with a placeholder price of $777. Labeled as the Nokia Lumia Icon, the 5-inch device includes a 20-megapixel camera, 2.2GHz quad-core processor, and a 2420 mAh battery according to the specifications listed by Verizon. The device has leaked a number of times under the name Lumia 929, but it appears Verizon will brand the device as the Lumia Icon instead.
