Nokia Lumia Icon comes with a Nokia Wireless Charging accessory valued between $49 and $69. But you need to purchase the Lumia Icon before March 16, 2014, at Microsoft retail store locations and the Microsoft online store.

The Icon will be available for $199 for new Verizon customers or for existing customers who are eligible for an upgrade with a new two-year agreement.

A Microsoft press release said Nokia Lumia Icon offers a 5-inch, HD, reduced-glare display and a 20-megapixel camera sensor that features Nokia PureView technology and ZEISS optics.

With four high-performance mics and Nokia Rich Recording, the Lumia Icon captures HD video while reducing background noise.

Powered by the latest version of Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia Icon comes with Live Tiles, which let you pin your favorite people, apps and more to your Start Screen for updates you care about and a phone that is uniquely yours.

Windows Phone 8 also offers more than 220,000 apps with about 500 new apps added daily. For a more dynamic experience, the Lumia Icon phone pairs great with the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, also available at Microsoft retail stores.
