If you were waiting for Nokia’s next superphone after the Nokia Lumia 925, it looks like the company will give everyone what they want with the impressive Nokia Lumia 930. It features some fantastic specs, not to mention shipping with Windows Phone 8.1 too.
There may be some disappointment in the air though. Consumers are slowly starting to find out that the Nokia Lumia 930 US release date may not happen for a long time.
You should be reminded that the recently released Nokia Lumia Icon is exclusive to Verizon in the US. The Lumia 930 is essentially the global version of the Icon and as a result a US release may not happen.
Verizon has an exclusive deal with Nokia on the Lumia Icon and Big Red will not want to see any competing new Lumia smartphones on other networks. If you were waiting for the Nokia Lumia 930 AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile release, we’re afraid to say that you are going to be waiting a long time.

As you can imagine, this is bad news for those that don’t want to buy the Icon on Verizon. One user as highlighted above has even voiced his displeasure by saying that he will pick up an iPhone 6 from Apple instead.
The Nokia Lumia 930 is looking like a truly awesome phone. With this in mind, let us know if you are disappointed that it doesn’t appear to be coming to the US, due to the Lumia Icon exclusive on Verizon.
