Nokia Lumia 822 Verizon: Full Specs and the interesting features

Sponsored Links

Nokia's Lumia 822 (Verizon) is being touted as the "most versatile Lumia" model till date. I'm not really sure how much longer would the Lumia series hold up against the current market wave of iPhone 5 or the even 'slightly strong market opponents' such as the Samsung SIII (or Samsung S3) models or the Sony Xperia mobile phone series. Nonetheless, I have no doubt Nokia came up with an interesting hit with the Nokia Lumia.  The company continues to feed on this hit by listing out endless Lumias. Just like Sony Mobile is doing with its endless Xperia this and Xperia that. 

The Lumia 800, Lumia 900 and Lumia 920 are quite popular devices (iPhone 5 remains the boss though) and I think the cell phone touts at the mobile device makers have another fairly big hit in the form of the Verizon Lumia 822 - a moderate, mid-high segment mobile device that is scheduled to hit the US and Asian markets (especially India, probably the biggest mobile phone market on the Asian side of the Globe).

So what exactly is Lumia 822 with its Verizon prep offering? First thing, the 822 is a Windows 8 phone (Yawn). That's all I think. 

Just kidding. The 822 has other interesting apps up its back panel but I'd say this is device is basically a slightly 'upgraded' version of the 800 (but of course!).
