Verizon Lumia 822

The Nokia Lumia 822, a variant of the Lumia 820 that's heading for Verizon, was spotted at the Windows Phone 8 launch event on Monday. CNET managed to get some hands-on with the white version, and boy does it look stunning when not displayed in a promotional video. 

As can be seen in the video above, the Lumia 822 runs the latest version of Microsoft's Windows Phone platform The device also sports a large looking 4.3" display, 4G LTE, as well as an 8MP rear camera and 1.2MP shooter up front. Plus, there's wireless charging on supported backplates.

Official promotion video below:

Verizon and Nokia have both announced the Windows Phone, which will be available for $99 on contract.

I was considering going with this over the 8X just due to cost but after seeing the video, it just looks too chunky and boring of a device. While the super sensitve touch would be a nice feature to have, I can't see myself picking one up.

succubism says:

Have you seen the grey color? It sounds boring but actually looks amazing and pretty much changed my mind regarding the phone.
Here is a pic on engadget: http://www.engadget.com/photos/nokia-lumia-822-for-verizon-hands-on/#5400136 (look at pic #20 and onward)
I'm falling in love with this phone despite myself...

OMG55 says:

I guess you didn't like the HTC ONE X either? To me this phone looks just like it; it's not a bad device for $99, but for me its the 920, surface phone by MS, or BUST (stay with 900 until I know if MS is making the surface phone)

kbaum1 says:

Am I psycho or is this phone not $50? I do declare that microsoft put up the price for this divice at 50 at the WP8 reveal. The only place I've seen the $99 price tag was a 'leak' around 3 weeks ago; however it seems any article on the divice anywhere within the last week has been throwing up 99 pretty confidently.

Kormiko says:

That "$50" was an error by Microsoft's Powerpoint creators.  Pretty stupid error.  It'll be $99... unless Best Buy or Amazon Wireless or whoever has a special deal.

erichon99 says:

I'm on contract until April, so I will get the 822 off contract. I can live with a chunky phone for another six months and get the latest and greatest Lumia or Surface phone.  I think the 8x is just too expensive off contract. I just bought a Surface tablet, so not really inclined to pay another $600-$700 for a phone. 

Have you seen an off contract price yet?  I am interested in doing the same but only because I want to keep my unlimited data plan.

erichon99 says:

I haven't seen a price but based on euro pricing of the 820, I am guessing 400

erzhik says:

What's with the old Windows logo?

eolorvida says:

YEAH, the logo... oh the logo... 

Rockartisten says:

Only in the picture, not in the video.

Cellus13 says:

The Lumia 822 is not ugly when you really see it, but I wish Nokia would stick to their N9 and Lumia 800 unibody design. Its so attractive & much more different. Its what makes the Lumia 920 innovative and unique.

The 822 is thinner than the Trophy. The trophy isn't super thick.

ejlee072006 says:

Wthe phone should be free on contract..damn

EJNelly says:

I have nothing against the 8x or the 822, but I am hoping to hear something about the 922 around the time I'm eligible to upgrade.

MadDogFL62 says:

The Samsung ATIV Odyssey should be out by then (at VZW) too.  I would much rather have the decision on my hands between the 922 and the ATIV verses the 822 and the 8X.

schoenbe says:

Uuuuuugly! And this should convince people using America's largest carrier to switch to the Windows Phone platform?

erichon99 says:

Hopefully the 8x will convince America to switch

MadDogFL62 says:

The 8X will do nothing but create buyers remorse and push customers to another platform when thier contracts are up.  The 8X is a sub-par device.  It's going to do nothing short of disappoint.  The 822 is a safer investment.  At least you pick up some decent Nokia software with the 822.  At least you can let your kid play games on the 822.  Most action/movement games will not be supported on the 8X.

WinFan1 says:

Wow you speak for the world? What an honor it must be....

Mohit tyagi says:

another good product of nokia
 

hcoreyh says:

This phone is ugly. Why didn't they stick within the bounds of their normal design? Why on earth is it soo fat?
