Verizon is slowly but surely acquiring new Windows Phones
Rumor has it that Verizon may sell the Nokia Lumia 822, and at a very affordable price: $49 on contract.
, Verizon will likely acquire the Nokia Lumia 822, but it will be stripped down compared to some premium AT&T phones running Windows 8. For instance, the Lumia 822 has a slightly different body style with rounded edges, and customers won't be able to change back covers to different colors.
However, the Lumia 822 will have 16GB of internal storage and 4G LTE connectivity through Verizon’s wireless network. It will also allow customers to send images and documents via Bluetooth, Outlook or tap2send.
All of this doesn't seem like a bad deal for only $49, especially considering the fact that Verizon could really use a good Windows Phone lineup for Windows 8. Many complained about the Nokia Lumia 920 -- which is the flagship phone for Windows 8 --
. The Lumia 820 is an AT&T-only Windows Phone as well.
While the 822 isn't quite as feature-heavy as the
Lumia 920 or the 820
, it will hopefully lead to more Windows 8 devices being sold through the carrier.

They said the same thing about WP7.
It sold poorly, so they shiatcanned it.
WP8 is coming, lather, rinse, repeat.
Nobody want Microsoft screwing up their mobile service. Embrace, extend, and extinguish. All the negatives of Apple, without the positives.
"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
