Nokia Lumia 928 goes on sale at Verizon

Verizon customers, it's time to stop feeling envious of folks on AT&T who can get the Lumia 920. Today, Nokia's new Windows Phone flagship, the Lumia 928, is available exclusively at the big red's online and brick and mortar stores.

Verizon's pricing for the Lumia 928 may lead to sales cannibalization of HTC's Windows Phone 8X. The latter finds itself in a difficult spot as it has to compete with a newer smartphone that is available for roughly the same money and with similar, if not better, hardware specifications.

After a $50 mail-in rebate, on a two-year contract the Lumia 928, in either white or black, runs for $99.99 which is on par with the Windows Phone 8X for the same type of carrier agreement.

The big red's customers can also grab the Lumia 928 for $499.99 with a month to month service, which is $50 lower compared to the Windows Phone 8X that is available for $549.99 in the same scenario.

The highlights of the Lumia 928 include 4.5-inch OLED display with a resolution of 768 by 1280; 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor; 1 GB of RAM; 32 GB of internal storage; 8.7 MP PureView back-facing camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and xenon flash; 2000 mAh battery; wireless charging; 4G LTE; NFC and Bluetooth 3.0. The Lumia 928 comes in at 5.4 x 2.71 x 0.4 inches and 5.75 oz.

By contrast the Windows Phone 8X comes with a 4.3-inch Super LCD2 display with a resolution of 720 by 1280; 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor; 1 GB of RAM; 16 GB of internal storage; 8 MP back-facing camera with LED flash; 1800 mAh battery; wireless charging; 4G LTE; NFC and Bluetooth 3.1. The Windows Phone 8X comes in at 5.21 x 2.61 x 0.4 inches and 4.66 oz.
