Introducing: Nokia Lumia 928, arriving May 16 exclusively on Verizon Wireless:

The Nokia Lumia 928 will be available on May 16th at and at your local Verizon Wireless Store. As a sweet bonus – for a limited time – buyers of the Nokia Lumia 928 will get a $25 credit for Windows Phone apps and games with the purchase of the phone.

The Nokia Lumia 928 is available for purchase in white or black at Verizon Wireless stores and online beginning Thursday, May 16 for USD99 after a USD50 mail-in rebate, with a new two-year customer agreement.  For a limited time, get a USD25 credit for Windows Phone apps and games with the purchase of a Nokia Lumia 928.*

The Lumia 928 brings the super rich distortion-free recording, up to 140db thanks to three high amplitude microphones in the device, although the official spec sheet isn’t up yet it’s safe to assume that this is the Lumia 920 in another body; carrying the same 4.5″ screen (but Amoled?).
