Nokia Lumia icon shows up briefly on Verizon's website

After popping up last week on an internal test page, the Lumia Icon made an abrupt reappearance on Verizon’s official site on Tuesday. The page was promptly taken down, but Gigaom managed to snag a few screenshots before it went offline. The listing was nearly identical to the one on the test page from last week, featuring the same photos of the device and the same $777 placeholder price tag with or without a contract. 

Nokia’s Lumia 929 appeared on a Verizon test site as the Lumia Icon earlier this month. Now it’s on Verizon’s official site although the company hasn’t yet announced the handset. A tweet from Stefan Constantine on Tuesday morning highlighted the Lumia Icon webpage, which currently has a placeholder price of $777 with or without contract. The 5-inch Windows Phone will have a 1920 x 1080 display and 20 megapixel PureView camera according to the product page. A metal chassis surrounds the handset which is also built with polycarbonate and Gorilla Glass 3. Qualcomm’s 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 chip powers the phone with 2 GB of memory and 32 GB of internal storage.
