Nokia’s(s nok) Lumia 929 appeared on a Verizon test site as the Lumia Icon earlier this month. Now it’s on Verizon’s(s vz)(s vod) official site although the company hasn’t yet announced the handset. A tweet from Stefan Constantine on Tuesday morning highlighted the Lumia Icon webpage, which currently has a placeholder price of $777 with or without contract.

The 5-inch Windows Phone(s msft) will have a 1920 x 1080 display and 20 megapixel PureView camera according to the product page. A metal chassis surrounds the handset which is also built with polycarbonate and Gorilla Glass 3(s glw). Qualcomm’s 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800(s qcom) chip powers the phone with 2 GB of memory and 32 GB of internal storage.

Here’s a shot of the full specs from Verizon’s site in case the product suddenly disappears.

This is either the cleverest market buildup, biggest consistent screwup or likely a combination of the two.
Furthermore with Verizon having a toxic relationship with Microsoft how can any desire be generated for MicroKiaZon?


The phone looks good and the specification are great but the price is too high for a 777$ quad core chipset powered device.
