Rumor: Verizon to start selling Nokia Lumia 929 Nov. 21st

Nokia has not officially admitted the existence of the Lumia 929 smartphone, but rumors about the 5-inch device started popping up on the Internet in September. Now a new report, via unnamed sources, claims the 929 will go on sale on Thursday, November 21st exclusively from Verizon Wireless.

The story, from NokiaPowerUser, also claims the Verizon version of the Lumia 2520 tablet will go on sale from the wireless carrier on the same day. The report states that Verizon will sell the 10.1 inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet for $399.99 while the Lumia 929 will sell for $199.99, with two year contracts. However, the same story also claims Verizon may offer a deal to sell the 2520 to customers for just $199.99 if they purchase it as a bundle with the 929 smartphone.

Just a reminder: The previous reports about the Lumia 929 claim it will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of onboard storage and a 20 megapixel rear camera.

If this rumor is true, next week could be a huge one for Nokia fans in the U.S. AT&T has already confirmed it will be selling its version of the 2520 tablet, along with its exclusive 6-inch Lumia 1520 smartphone, starting on November 22nd.

I can't believe Nokia will debut a new Snapdragon 800 1080p screen based 5 inch device without bells and whistles and it will be only in U.S side of the world.
I couldn't believe they didn't unveil such device last month.
The 4.5 - 5 inch screen devices are the most important by far (despite getting some foothold in market share with the 4 inch Lumia 520/521).

Wow, the same deal as AT&T when you buy both devices.

I'm glad to see Verizon actually launching new devices at the same time as AT&T instead of 6 months later.

This is still exclusive to them though, since it's not the 1520 or 1320 which are 6" devices and this is said to be a 5". I agree it's good that they're releasing at the same time as AT&T for once but each one still has their own exclusive models it seems.

That's true. This time though, I actually prefer the Verizon model. I'm not a huge fan of 6" phones, so getting all the high end specs in a 5" model is nice.

I'd be willing to bet the 929 sells better since the 1520 seems destined for a niche audience (like me). I can see plenty of people though buying a 5" hero phone from Nokia that actually competes with the best Android has to offer.

I second that. I would like to see ATT comes with a 5' model with all goodies. 1020 is small, 1520 is too big for my hands. I feel a 5' like Note 3 should be good. But, I also feel folks to wait for WP 8.1 due in Jan, cos it's gone to have a lot of new features (aka hardware one's, i heard kinect kind of one's) which may not come to 2013 devices i feel.

My guess about 8.1 devices is more March, April; other than that I am doing the same: I will hold until such devices will be out to replace my 920. If a 1520 shrunk to 5" was out now it would have been harder but a 6" , and without a pen, does not appeal me.
