Verizon Wireless today announced that it will soon offer the Nokia Lumia 822 smartphone. The 822 is a customized version of the Lumia 820, which was announced earlier this year. The external design has been altered a bit to make the device unique. It has a less rectangular look and replaces the sharp corners of the Lumia 820 with rounded edges. It supports Verizon's CDMA 3G and LTE 4G networks. Other features of the Lumia 822 include an 8-megapixel camera, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, and NFC. The Lumia 822 runs Windows Phone 8 and will be available later this month for $99.99 with a new contract.
