Nokia Lumia 822 gets the ol' teardown treatment
The Nokia Lumia 822 is an exclusive to Verizon and while very similar to the mid-range Nokia Lumia 820, it does have a slightly larger battery and a better front-facing camera. Even though Black Friday doesn't start until this upcoming Friday, we've already seen a huge price cut from Big Box retailer Best Buy who is offering the device in black for $49.99 with a signed two-year contract. That is a whopping $50 off the price that Big Red is charging for the handset.

It seems everyone wants to teardown the current crop of new phones and tablets. This past week alone saw the Google Nexus 4 and Google Nexus 10 torn apart, and now a forum in China called Tieba has done the same to the Nokia Lumia 822. They found a plastic frame and on the rear cover, the wireless charging coil and the NFC sensor. What did you expect, Jimmy Hoffa? There is also a picture of the motherboard for those who like to examine such things,

So which device will be next to get taken apart?

It could be plastic on all the phone, but i bet is much more durable and resistant than the iPhone 5 :)
