*Lumia 928 is priced at $99 after a pesky $50 mail-in-rebate
Nokia's latest smartphone now officially has a date with Verizon Wireless: May 16. The new Nokia Lumia 928 packs in a 4.5" OLED (1280x768), a 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor, 32GB of storage space, an 8.7mp rear shooter with Carl Zeiss optics, a xenon flash, and NFC. The smartphone also manages to pack in a 2000 mAh battery.
Naturally, the Lumia 928 comes with PureView imaging and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in an effort to cut down on blurry pictures and improve nighttime shots.
The Lumia 928 is priced at $99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate (really, a MIR?) with a new 2-year contract. For a limited time, those who purchase a Lumia 928 will also get a $25 credit to use on Windows Phone apps and games.

There is a large, untapped market out there. We just crossed 50% on smartphone usage in the US. Which means there's somewhere around 45% of people who have yet to choose a platform. So it's not too late.
I also think WP8 is hitting critical mass with apps. Supposedly Instagram is around the corner and most of the other major ones are out there. Support for the Unity gaming engine is helping gaming development for cross platform titles.
As for the whole camera argument, there are people who value a quality camera on a smartphone and others who don't care. I think the camera is relevant to more people than the CPU specs. Most people care if a phone can do what they need. Email, text, facebook, twitter, instagram, Vine, games and appointments.
I am a huge fan of WP8. But if I were heavily vested in iOS or Android, which is the camp that a lot of people find themselves in, is it better to a level it's worth switching. That's the question. I feel that WP8 is as good as iOS and Android in almost every area. There are some places it's better, there are some places it's worse. But I think it's on equal footing. The problem is being equal isn't good enough to make people switch to an all new platform.
I am buying my wife the 928 when it comes out this week. I've got the 8X. She'll miss a few (stupid) games but other than that it's a better fit. The Rooms feature will be awesome for us. And she loves taking pics on her phone so the camera is a huge plus. If the HTC One were out on VZW already I'd be hardpressed not to go that route though.

Call me when they break 10% worldwide. I truly hope they do... But I doubt it.
