Nokia Lumia 822, 5-inch HTC smartphone apparently headed to Verizon
Soon after the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 were announced officially, a Verizon representative stated that the carrier is planning to release multiple Windows Phone 8 devices. And thanks to a leaked screenshot of Big Red's device management system, we kind of know what smartphone the carrier is currently eyeing. A handset by the name of Nokia Lumia 822 is apparently listed on the DMS with support for 4G connectivity, presumably LTE. It doesn't take a scientist to figure out that this could be a Nokia Lumia 820 model tailored for Verizon.

But wait, there's more! Another mysterious device that is listed on the system carries a code name HTC 6435 and is speculated to be HTC's rumored 5-inch beast of a smartphone. You know, the 5-inch super phone that has been rumored for a long time, and that is expected to look like this. If rumors are to be trusted, the handset will be positioned as a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note II, will have a very high-res display and will be powered by a Snapdragon S4 processor.

Of course, it is way too early to get excited about either of these smartphones as all this information is based on rumors and speculation. If the above holds water, however, then an official announcement straight from the horse's mouth might not be far off.

i think they will get the lumia 820 but going to be rename as 822 to be verizons version since 820 will be international version and AT&T will get the lumia 920 and i think T-Mobile will get either lumia 820 or the other lower mid range that has a codename "zeal" with 1ghz dual core processor and design like zune HD...

just my lucky guess! :)

hope verizon will market lumia like they did to android last 2009!!

If Nokia doesn't offer a version of the Lumia 920 (922?) for VZW customers, I suspect they will miss out on sales. One reason Sammy managed to sell 20 million GS IIIs in 100 days is they released a version of the phone for every carrier.

Nokia, don't f*ck this up! You are off to a not so smooth start, what with the faked video and rigged photo shoot in a dark room. Apple and Sammy aren't going to give you a pass. VZW customers that may be open to a Lumia phone may pass if all that is available on VZW is the 820 edition. This is the kind of stupidity and arrogance that got Nokia and RIM into their present dire circumstance. There is a reason the share price for Nokia dropped 16% after the announcement.

Nokia got some people to make this video for them. a lot of times the Video Production crew does things their way to make the commercial not the Clients way.. I have worked in Video production and can tell you unless the Client orders it to be done a certain way they will use every trick In the book including computer CGI which is as fake as you can get to make a commercials so do not get freaked out that the Video production People that Nokia hired did what they did. it's Hollywood baby.
