If you happen to be a fanboy of the Windows Phone platform and are currently in the market for your next mobile weapon of choice, you know that your choices are a bit limited when it comes to the number of handsets you can select from. In fact, if you have the means, you only have two choices if you want a high-end Windows Phone 8 handset and these are the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC Windows Phone 8X. If you want a midranger, it is the same thing – you only have a handful to choose from.
Now on sale, the Verizon Nokia Lumia 822 4G at a great intro price of only $0.01 for all three colors of Black, Grey or White.
If in case you are out for a midranger and are having a hard time making your decision, we suggest that you let price point be one of the major factors to consider when choosing your next handset. With this in mind, you might want to make the Nokia Lumia 822 from Verizon be at the top of your shortlist.
As it stands, Verizon currently has a little deal that will make you get your hands on the Nokia Lumia 822 at a very affordable price point that is almost next to nothing. At this price point, you are getting a very capable midranger for the price of an entry level one – which makes you end up as the clear winner of the deal here. Not only that, Verizon has also given its online resellers the authorization to slash the price point of the Nokia Lumia 822 which makes this deal harder to ignore and even harder to refuse. Imagine, you get to have a very capable handset (not high-end capable mind you, but still capable) and get to save a whole lot of your hard-earned dinero as well in the process. Of course, you will be required to sign a new two-year service contract with Big Red for that matter if you want to take advantage of this deal but I’m guessing you know that already.
Going back to the Nokia Lumia 822, the handset was added on to Verizon’s lineup back in October last year but it wasn’t until November when the midranger finally became available in the shelves for public consumption. The handset has measurements of 127.8 x 68.4 x 11.2 mm and it tips the scales at a rather hefty 141.6 grams for its size.
Buy the Verizon Nokia Lumia 822 4G in any of the three colors for only $0.01.
Under the hood, the Nokia Lumia 822 runs Windows Phone 8 for its operating system and this draws power from the handset’s QualComm MMS8960 SnapDragon chipset. This SoC comes with a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and a full gigabyte of RAM to ensure that the performance of the handset is always snappy and stutter-free. The Nokia Lumia 822 comes with 16GB of internal storage but this can easily be expanded using the microSD card slot in the chassis of the handset. Its display on the other hand is a 4.3-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels while its camera department features a main 8MP shooter at its back panel and a secondary 1.2MP snapper at its front bezel.
