The word from the Verizon source is that the carrier has started training its staff on Microsoft's updated mobile OS. The nation's largest carrier is rumored to not only offer the HTC Windows Phone 8X, but also the Nokia Lumia 822 which some speculate is a Verizon specific version of the Nokia Lumia 820.
Microsoft is going to hold one of three media events on October 29th. The Redmond based firm is expected to offically introduce Windows Phone 8 on that date. With Verizon possibly launching the HTC Windows Phone 8 as soon as the next week, those staff members getting indoctrinated in Windows Phone 8 better start cracking the books.
