Look for one of Nokia’s next big Windows Phones to land at Verizon in a little more than a month.

The Lumia 929 will launch as early as the first week of November, sources told Windows Phone Central. The phone that features a five-inch display might be introduced alongside the six-inch 1520 and the 2520 tablet at an event in Abu Dhabi on Oct. 22. In fact, six new devices from Nokia are expected.

Off-contract, it will reportedly set you back $500, meaning you can probably expect a contract price in the $100-$150 range.  Look for the 929 to feature a powerful camera that rivals other recent Nokia releases.

Microsoft recently announced that it plans to buy Nokia’s devices and services unit. CEO Steve Ballmer indicated that we could expect some less clinical names (1520, 929, 2520) under Microsoft leadershsip.
