It's official: Nokia's Verizon Lumia 928 is here

More likely to follow next week

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Nokia's long-rumoured exclusive phone for Verizon, the Lumia 928, has been officially announced.

It's really a Lumia 920 with a more tapered body, an AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) screen, and a proper, grown-up Xenon camera flash.

It's also lost some weight: at 161.5g, it's a fair bit lighter than the 920's 185g, although the battery capacity is the same. A wild variety of rumours circulating since Christmas suggested it had a new aluminium case and had lost wireless charging - neither being true.

Verizon has confirmed it will stock the device at $100 with a two-year contract, from 16 May.

You can find out more - but not much more - at Nokia's company blog, here.

The Lumia 920 was announced in September 2012 and only very limited quantities were made available - initially through an exclusive deal with Everything Everywhere - by the end of the year. So Nokia's high end is due a refresh. The much-glimpsed aluminium model may be announced at a Nokia event in London next week. ®
