Nokia Lumia 822 for Verizon leaks again, purported features and pricing includedAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Just a few days after we were treated to our first look at the Nokia Lumia 822 in the wild, more purported details about the Verizon-bound smartphone have surfaced. A report from WMPowerUser offers up a couple more photos of the Lumia 822, showing off its face more clearly than the previous pair of images. The site claims that the Lumia 822 has a plasticky feel similar to that of the HTC Trophy, but that Nokia's device is slightly taller and wider than HTC's. It's said that the Lumia 822 features 16GB of storage and a microSD card slot, and we're also told to expect wireless charging, like the Lumia 820 that it's based on. Unlike the Lumia 822, though, the 820 allegedly does not have exchangeable rear shells.
Neither Nokia nor Verizon has come forward to confirm the existence of the Lumia 822, so it's not yet clear when the phone will be launching or how much it might cost when it does. However, today's report suggests that the Lumia 822 could be priced at just $49.99 with a two-year contract when it does arrive, so customers interested in the device as it's been described so far may not have to shell out much to take one home. As usual, you can bet that we'll give you a shout once we get some official details on the Lumia 822 and its availability. Any of you Verizon folk considering checking this thing out whenever it lands?
