Verizon: HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 822 in stores; Best Buy offering black Nokia Lumia 822 for $49.99
The Nokia Lumia 822 is $99.99 at Verizon with a two-year pact. If you don't mind getting the phone in black, Best Buy is offering the very same device for $49.99 on contract. If you're the lazy type, Best Buy's website simply matches Big Red's pricing so if you want the discount, you will need to get into the car (motorcycle, bicycle or even a rickshaw) and head down to the actual glass and steel location. Better hurry because supplies at Best Buy are said to be low.
For a quick refresher, the Nokia Lumia 822 has a 4.3 inch WVGA, AMOLED display with a 217ppi pixel density. The same processor found on the HTC 8X is on board, along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. Unlike the HTC model, the Nokia Lumia 822 offers a microSD slot. The back and front-facing shooters weigh in at 8MP and 1.2MP respectively, and there is LTE connectivity.

I had the pleasure of toying with a Lumia 822 (White) earlier today at a Verizon store, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the hardware. Although, it's not top high-end hardware, it is certainly not the mediocrity that they have been pushing the past few years.
However, I still find the Tile UI grotesque. Is there a way to get rid of the tiles?
