If you are over in the USA and your carrier of choice happens to be the Big Red, and you are in the market for a Windows Phone 8 smartphone, there will be a couple of options for you come November when the Nokia Lumia 822 and the HTC 8X handsets become available on Verizon.
According to a article over on The Droid Guy by way of WPcentral, both the Nokia Lumia 822 and the HTC 8X handsets will become available on Verizon as of the 8th of November, and have received an image from a tipster of the California blue HTC 8X sitting next to the white Nokia Lumia 822, and this is probably the first real shot of the Lumia 822.
The unnamed tipster also provided the expected price tag for each Windows Phone 8 handset, with the Nokia Lumia 822 said to command a price tag of 99-bucks on contract, whilst the HTC 8X will command a price tag of $199.
When it comes to specifications for the Nokia Lumia 822 there hasn’t been that much revealed thus far, but rumour has it the Lumia 822 will sport a WVGA 480 x 800 pixel resolution touch screen along with an 8 megapixel rear facing camera and a front facing snapper, and 4G LTE connectivity and it is assumed most of the internals will be the same as the Nokia Lumia 820.
As for the HTC 8X, the handset sports a 4.3-inch S LCD 2 touch screen along with Corning Gorilla Glass 2, an 8 megapixel rear facing auto-focus camera with LED flash, a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera, 1080p video, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, but no microSD expansion, a 1.5GHz dual core processor, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, NFC, 4G LTE connectivity, 3.5mm jack and an 1800mAh battery.
So there you have it, those that have had their eyes on either of these two Windows Phone 8 handset should be able to grab them on the 8th of next month. Will any of our US readers be picking up either the Nokia Lumia 822 or HTC 8X on Verizon?
