The Verizon edition of the Nokia Lumia had been reported to be in development stages under the model number 929 though the smartphone is expected to be launched under the name of Lumia Icon. That would have been a parting of ways for Nokia who are known to launch their products with a number prefix.
Nothing has been confirmed by Nokia, even of its present stage so speculation is yet the only source for information on this product. And the latest bit of information that has emerged mentions the date of 16 January, 2014 to be the possible date of release of the smartphone device. The date of 16 January has been speculated since it is a Thursday and hence tallies well with the usual Verizon practice of announcing its products on Thursdays. Another benefit of launching the device on the aforementioned date is that it being after CES 2014, the device would no doubt gain from a lot of publicity during the event, it being the biggest tech event held in this part of the world.
The other issue of interest is the specification of the phone itself. There too, not much is known officially and what is known off the record is that it is a smaller version of the Lumia 1520 with a 5 inch display. this should suffice those who prefer a big screen device though not as big as the Lumia 1520 that comes with a massive 6 inch display, which makes it the second biggest phablet after Sony Xperia Ultra device that offer 6.4 inches of screen real estate. The Lumia 1520 is currently the only device in the phablet segment that runs Windows and offers a HD display. the Lumia 929 or Lumia Icon will surely add more options in the Windows phablet segment.
