Lumia 928 Online Orders Face Slight Delay?


After what seemed like an endless torrent of leaks, Nokia’s Lumia 928 for Verizon finally went official earlier this month, getting its formal announcement a week ago. At the time, we learned that the phone would be available in Verizon retail stores beginning today, May 16. We also see online sales of the phone open up today, but the 928 isn’t quite ready to ship just yet.

According to Verizon, orders for the Lumia 928 will ship by next Monday, May 20. We know, that’s just a few days, but the disparity between online and retail availability dates may just point to possible supply chain issues. Given the short time frame we’re talking about, we don’t expect any such hiccups to become long-term problems with 928 availability, but we’ll be keeping a watch on the situation.

Verizon’s selling the Lumia 928 for just about $100 on-contract. The smartphone is a modest upgrade over last year’s 920, getting a 4.5-inch OLED display and outfitting its camera with a real xenon flash.

Update: Looks like this is only for the black 928. If the white model is more your cup of tea, it appears that one’s ready to ship currently.
