Nokia Lumia 822 Hands-on
We were at the Windows Phone 8 event in San Francisco and our hopes were answered with several official announcements, including the Nokia Lumia 822 for Verizon Wireless.   

The Lumia 822 feels great in the hand, but due to the lanyard attached to it, it was difficult to get a full idea about the weight and feel of the device.  The 4.3-inch display is vivid and clear and very responsive.  The Windows Phone 8 user-interface is the same, fluid, smooth and looks well put together.  Microsoft has committed to having the most sought after apps available for the device.  Holding the device up close, it does not feel like a lesser-cousin to the Lumia 920.  It has solid hardware, a familiar fluid OS and nice features like a lock button on the side, and a physical camera button.

Check out the pictures and hands-on video below and tell us what you think!

Honesly, the leaked images of the 822 worried me at first too, but having seen it up-close, this device has a nice look to it. Think of a Lumia 710 inspired design.

This is a nice smart phone to break into using Windows phone 8 that wont break your Pocket book. but folks there is still a chance Verizon may get a Nokia Lumia 920 variation if the internet rumor mil is true. info out on the web says AT & T will only have the 920 exclusive rights for a limited amount of time now we all want to know if this is true because why buy a Nokia 822 on contract when you can get a more powerful Verizon 920. a lot of Verizon people would will have a fit if 90 days from now Verizon gets the 920 variation. I hope someone at Nokia and Verizon gives us the truth about this rumor
