NOKIA Lumia Icon Specs, Verizon online at $199.99 suggested price

Verizon has been officially announced today that the NOKIA Lumia Icon will be out in Verizon stores on February 20. It will cost $199.99 with a new two-year contract. Pre-orders start today, but it looks like they are only available in Microsoft Stores.

The Nokia Lumia Icon has a 5-inch 1080p Full HD ClearBlack touchscreen that can be used with gloves, a 20 MP PureView rear camera, a 1.2 MP wide-angle front camera, a 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Qi wireless charging, and a 2,420 mAh battery. Its dimensions are 137x71x9.8 mm, and it weighs 167 grams. It runs the latest version of Windows Phone 8.

According to Cnet.com

The good: The feature-packed Nokia Lumia Icon has a gorgeous screen, a fast processor, and a proven 20-megapixel camera. Low-light image quality is excellent.

The bad: Its flat, slab design is uninspiring, and the Icon is a little heavy and thick. Call quality was mediocre, and media hounds won't be able to expand storage with a microSD card.

The bottom line: Buy the Nokia Lumia Icon for its beautiful display and well-rounded features, but skip it if you require gobs of storage, are on a budget, or prefer a power user's OS.
