Nokia Lumia 928 available May 16 on Verizon
Nokia is launching the Lumia 928, its newest high-end Windows Phone, on Thursday. The phone, which will be carried by Verizon, will sell for $99.99, after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a two-year contract.
The phone, which will come in either black or white, has a 4.5-inch OLED screen with 1280 x 768 resolution and an aspect ratio of 15:9. It has a 1.5 GHz dual core, Qualcomm processor, a 8.7 megapixel camera with Xenon flash, and 32GB of internal memory.
For a limited time, the phone will also come with a $25 credit for the Windows Phone store, which Microsoft says now has 145,000 apps and games.
ZDNet has a good comparison of the 928 and the Lumia 920.
It’s a busy month for Nokia’s Lumia line. In addition to this latest version of a flagship Windows Phone, Nokia is also launching the entry-level Lumia 521 in Wal-Mart and T-Mobile stores.
