    It's a dual CDMA/GSM phone. It should work in Europe on GSM.

    3 good reasons, the Lumia 820 is 165 gr vs 140 of the 822 has 8gb of memory instead of 16gb and the battery is 1650 mha istead of 1800.
    I simply don't understand why nokia decided to sell the 820 instead of 822 throughout the world.

    Because it's uglier lol. The 810 is a nicer phone but still 8GB. The microSD slots make up for that though, you have enough left for apps.

    I've read that wp8 has a space issue especially in phones with 8gb or less memory, because you only have 5 gb free and the OS uses up a lot of space for app cache.
    In the lumia 820 forum this argument is well discussed.
    822 may be uglier than 820 but all around is a better phone imho
