*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.

I don't think smartphone market is already saturated - there is still plenty space to grow. In addition, I don't think that current market share is set in stone - people do and will switch on occasion.
WP has what? This is sort of personal, value of any product. I cannot talk for everyone, but in my case... I've been using iPhone 3Gs from 2009. While it still cover my smartphone needs, I am not at all motivated to get latest iPhone. Platform has attractive UX factor but GUI was already tried-and-familiar icons matrix that I had on my old Palm devices, my Windows desktop... In 2011 I got Asus Transformer tablet. While Google pushed UX with notifications, widgets... underlying concept was unchanged.
I see W8/WP8 as real advantage in both GUI and UX. It works for me. I use tiles regularly to see if I have new emails, calendar events, messages from mates... without having to run app or open web page. Granted I didn't have a chance to use WP8 phone, but based on my experience with W8 desktop, laptop and tablet (I ad opportunity to trial Lenovo ThinkPad tablet 2 for two weeks), I really like fluidity one moves with through GUI.
So, again, for me - WP8 is catching up in terms of market share and app library, but it is also a step above in terms of usability. Not that I cannot do everything on iOS or Android, but I like more how it is being done on WP8. That is a value WP8 has for me, but how many others think the same now and, more important, how many will think the same in 3, 6, 12 months time - that remains to be seen.
