    Nokia model will be at my training
    I've read it will be for a few on here. I'm guessing that he may be mistaken or just not realize it yet.

    Or if it really isn't, then they have a separate training set up for Nokia at their store on a different date.

    Either way, I'm a bit torn. HTC 8X seems nice but I need more space for Music & Pics. Im seriously debating going with the Nokia 822 for now but would have considered ATIV S if it came out at launch too.

    Im in need of a new phone ASAP. I can always change down the road (sell whatever I buy) if 9xx or high end device comes out in Dec.

    Yeah I'm pretty torn as well. My trophy is starting to act weird so I'm really wanting a new phone so I'm going back and forth over waiting or getting the 8x or the 822 or trying to hold out for a 9xx device. I guess it all comes down to going in and holding both phones and going from there

    Blue, red, black for the HTCs
    Black and white for 822.

    The yellow models will come if the sales are there/might be online exclusive
    I really hope this isn't true.

    The yellow is the only color I want. And it's pretty prominent on the HTC 8X page. I think that would be a dumb idea.

    There was a grey 822 listed on the Verizon roadmap that leaked a bit back.

    I'm switching from iOS to the 8x - unless Verizon comes out with a suckerpunch phone on the announcement date.

    Have you had hands on time with the 8x?

    8X is Godly. Like, holy ****. Most premium feeling phone I've ever held. Snappy, fast, and GORGEOUS screen. Camera was good enough for what most people will do.

    822 is okay. Looks and feels a lot like the Samsung Droid Charge. Screen looks fantastic for having a low resolution. Very thick and plasticy.

    I am in love with the 8X though. Will be ordering on launch day.

    VZ Navigator, My Verizon Mobile, Back Up Assistant, and NFL Mobile come preinstalled but are unstallable.

    What colors did you see in person? Is the blue as purple as it looks in some of the photos I've seen or is it more royal blue than it looks? Fingerprint magnet? Thanks

    That's what I like to hear. I just wish the HTC had City Lens... I'm glad to hear this thing is nice, depending on what happens the 29th, the 8x has my vote.

    This makes me really excited about the 8X. I've overcome my initial disappointment that the 920 wouldn't be coming to Verizon and don't feel like I'm settling by getting the 8X based on my usage. Now I just have to figure out which color I'd like.

    As much as the 8x is sounding like an awesome device I still can't get past all the Nokia apps. I'm really going to have to weigh everything out

    They were identical as far as i could tell. But I'm not a camera person by any means. I'd say they were on par with my wifes S3

    The 8X is very purpley. Indigo is the matching theme color.

    Something i did notice is that the theme colors were different between the two phones. The Nokia had more than the 8X and they were much different. The 8X I had was the indigo. The 822 was white.

    A key here is NFL Mobile, Back Up Assistant, and Navigator. None are available for WP7 despite all being mainstays on other VZW devices, including feature phones.

    Verizon is gung-ho about WP8. I'm expecting two more phones by mid-December to launch for WP8 on VZW.

    I'm guessing those phones are the Samsung ATIV and HTC 8S?

    The 8S is a sure thing (no yellow option that guy either) but the Ativ S isn't something I'd count on. I heard that our next prepaid smartphone was going to be a 4G Samsung WP8. The Ativ S is way too high end to sell for $150-$200 on prepaid service.

    Verizon isn't giving WP8 special treatment though. They're still pushing how important it is to match the right device with the right customer. I would only expect the 8X and 822 to get big announcements the other phones will probably roll out business as usual like how the Intuition or the Lucid or the Incredible 4G just kind of were available one day.

    So is the Verizon 8X 16GB? That's the only question I have that I haven't seen the answer to anywhere.

    Yeah. Its 16GB with about 11 left after the OS, Verizons demo content, demo pictures and vidoes, etc. Id guess about 13 available to the user on the retail models
