Imagine this, but in aluminum and on Verizon.

Word has come into The Verge that the previously codenamed ‘Laser’ Nokia Windows Phone for Verizon is indeed the Lumia 928, a variant of the Lumia 920 flagship that launched on AT&T earlier this year. Verizon is definitely better off for it, especially since Microsoft is reportedly swearing a number of dollars to market the thing.

Of course, Verizon’s had a pretty turbulent relationship with Microsoft after that whole Kin phone thing a few years back. Like Sprint, they’ve only had a single middling model available, namely HTC’s Trophy, all to hold up the lofty expectations of of Windows Phone fans everywhere, myself once included. I know there aren’t many, but they do exist! A friend of mine, in retiring their BlackBerry, settled on a Lumia 920 and she enjoys the heck out of it. I can say that maybe it was her phone case, but that is a hefty slab of cellular hardware, built to last. The Verizon variant won’t be much different, but it’ll obviously be available on the nation’s largest carrier. I’m telling ya, if I carried a second phone on my person, this would be it.
