    The shape looks like a lower-end phone to me. Maybe because it reminds me of the 710. Aesthetically, I like 810 > 820 > Atlas.

    Glad Verizon is getting SOME Nokia phone, but disappointed that AT&T is the only one getting the 920 so far.

    It does look cheap. I was hoping for that nice squared look all the other phones were getting. Unless it's packing some sweet features I'm feeling pretty let down. It looks just like every other android phone on Verizon's shelf.

    I fixed it up a bit. Looks much more better now.



    Carrier branding has got to be the worst and most redundant idea ever.

    LOL, nice improvement, Gaichuke.

    It's still not the prettiest handset... reminds me of the LG Quantum.

    Without the squared edges, it's nothing more then just another phone aesthetically, but the logo is still hideous. If it has removable covers then it does look as if the cover extends to the front where the logo is so maybe an unmarked case is possible.

    Edit: I did just notice that the bottom does look quite similar to the HTC trophy, maybe they got with HTC and swapped designs.

    To me it looks like an amalgam of Lumia 610 and 710 designs.

    EDIT: I definitely see it. It's like 710 and 610 did the nasty and 822 is the fruit of that hot Nokia-on-Nokia action:

    As ugly as it is, so long it has the same screen and camera of the 920, this will be my phone.

    It definitely does not. Where on earth did you get that idea?

    From the recesses of my personal mind. Frankly, I don't care what it looks like. It is going to get covered up with a case anyways. I'm much more interested in what's inside. That is what counts. I'll leave the aestheics to the fashion police.

    As long as it has the 920's camera then I'm sold, otherwise it looks like it'll be the 8X for me... : (

    I, too, wish the corners were more squared off. If they were to put an HD screen on it, which is highly unlikely, I'd consider this over the 8X to get the exclusive Nokia apps and have a slightly smaller phone. I almost never use the camera on my phone so losing PureView wouldn't bother me nearly as much as it would affect others. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what Verizon officially announces before I make up my mind.

    Getting ready to sell a ****load of Lumia 920s on a carrier with over 90 million people.

    Would be my guess.

    Another factor that may steer me to this phone would be the off contract price. As Scout just mentioned, the exclusive Nokia apps is a big component in my choice. So if it's at a decent price, with no 920 features, I may get it, as this may well be the only Nokia option we'll get on Verizon. Still, though, I have time to spare so I am in no hurry to make a decision.

    I think I'll skip this one. If I'm going to upgrade, I at least want a higher-res display than I have now. And that Verizon logo placement is...unfortunate. Why not put it on top like AT&T and T-Mo versions? I'll wait to see if Nokia has a better Verizon offering up their sleeve. And if not, well, I figure I've lived without Nokia apps for this long. I can do without them.

    Actually, what kinda bums me out for the Verizon customer base is that if you put spec VS spec of this and the 8X, neither is a runaway winner (I am assuming this is similar to the 820. Still to be announced goodies in this to be seen). I still believe a Flagship Nokia will come to Big Red, but that doesn't help the potential WP customer base now.

    The off-contract price will be a deciding factor for me as well. I'll have 11 months to wait until I'm eligible for an upgrade by the time these devices are released (unless I steal my dad's upgrade in February). Considering the fact that the 820/810/822 have the same processor and amount of RAM as the 920, the user experience will still be very comparable. I guess I'll make my decision once Verizon lays all of their cards on the table.

    What would be an acceptible price for you, $400 maybe $500? I may get it if it's at $400.

    For some reason, I kinda like the look of this phone better than the 810. Can't quite put my finger on it. Still, nothing beats the 920. I really wanted the 820, but the more I think about the 920, the more I really, really, REALLY want one of those, which, if I did get, I'd have to get it unlocked. :dry

    I'd probably spend $400 on it, but the 822 would be a tough sell if the 8X were within $100 with regards to full retail price. It would be nice if WP8 devices came in at a lower cost than the iPhone and high-end Android devices do.

    It is a mid range device! The HTC 8x will be VZN's upper tier device!

    $400 for an 822 versus $500 for an 8X... hmmm. I would have to play around with both first. I'll need to take video and pictures, in addition to comparing screens, and decide which would be better.
