It seems the elusive Nokia Lumia Icon is finally about to complete the trip from a mere rumor to an official smartphone. A newly leaked internal document aligns, which aligns nicely with the teaser that Nokia released yesterday and gives a possible date for the launch of the handset on the Verizon network.
According to a leaked Verizon inventory document the Nokia Lumia Icon will be making its way to the stores of the big red on February 19. A bunch of accessories for the handset will be arriving a day later, on February 20, when the sales are expected to start.
Furthermore, a new report by WPcentral has it that pre-orders for the upcoming Nokia flagship will start as soon as next week. The exact date mentioned is February 12, so the announcement must be coming in less than three days. And, in case you are interested in booking your Nokia Lumia Icon unit, you should know that pre-orders will be accepted against a $50 deposit.
In case you got lost in the sea of leaks so far, the Nokia Lumia Icon should be a WP8 GDR3-running smartphone with a 5” 1080p AMOLED screen and a Snapdragon 800 chipset (2.2GHz quad-core Krait CPU, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM). It should have the same 20MP camera as the Lumia 1520 and a 2,510 mAh juice pack.
European countries are blocking US company products (MS, Apple, Google,....) and lunching a product in Europe is much more complicated and takes lot of times than elsewhere. Companies don't care you are European or American, they just make money and ...
Indeed why only the states? Nokia is a European company run by some cowboys from the US. It is a superb telefone which should be sold world wide!!
With Big Red, common sense is not their strength when it comes to rollouts....
