Nokia Lumia 822 now free at Verizon

After launching it with a $99.99 price tag, then subsequently slashing that amount in half a month ago, Verizon is now offering the Nokia Lumia 822 for free. That’s undoubtedly the best price for anything, so in case you’re interested in picking up this Windows Phone (and for some reason haven’t done so already), you’ll probably be pretty happy. Naturally though, as with all carrier offers, you will need to commit to a two-year contract with Big Red.

The Lumia 822 is Verizon’s top phone from the Finnish maker at the moment, so if this is your carrier of choice and you want a Nokia, it’s pretty much what you’ll have to get. Not that it’s a bad smartphone, by the way. It’s just not Nokia’s flagship in the same way the 920 (found on AT&T) is.

The Nokia Lumia 822 has a 4.3-inch 480×800 ClearBlack touchscreen, an 8 MP Carl Zeiss autofocus rear camera with dual-LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, a 1.2 MP front-facing camera with 720p video capabilities, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (MSM8960), all the usual connectivity options (including LTE), and a 1,800 mAh battery. It runs Windows Phone 8.

    I’m not a WP user, but I’m pretty sure that the 8X is a better device.

    Also, being free still wont move these phones. Gimme $50 bucks and I might consider it.

    It was overpriced to begin with. Why would anybody pay $99 for lumia 822 the same price as lumia 920 and comes without charging plate and charging black cover (another $99 value) with 16 gb less memory and other feature lacking from att’s Lumia 920. That being said, I paid the full price for Lumia 822, and I loved every single minute with it. Why? Because I am tied to Verizon contract until the end of this year. After that I am going to AT&T for Lumia 920.

    On May 1, 2013 Nokia Lumia 920 will no longer be exclusive to ATT and Sprint and Verizon will be carrying either Lumia 920 or one of its clones. By the end of February Nokia will make an announcement about their plans. Sprint has already confirmed officially that they’ll carry WP8 from Nokia in 2013 and Verizon if waiting for Lumia 922.
