WMPU claims to have received more information about the leaked Nokia Lumia 822. It appears device's maps application will be called "Nokia Maps" instead of just "Maps" like other Windows Phone 8 devices. We suppose this differentiation is in name only as all Windows Phone 8 will use Nokia Maps.
The handset is said to have 16 GB internal storage and a microSD card slot. It features wireless charging although the shell is not removable or replaceable. The WMPU source claims the handset handset feels "plasticky, much like the HTC Trophy, and is somewhat taller and wider."
Also, the phone does not show up as a mass-storage device when connected to a Windows 7 computer. We know that Windows Phone 8 devices do appear with Windows 8 desktop, appearing in File Explorer with drag-n-drop capabilities for music, photos and documents. Given that most people use Windows 7, we suppose Microsoft will produce some kind of "companion application/software" for Windows 7 users.
Like we've said in previous posts, we don't think the looks particularly pleasing but a retail price of only $49.99 on contract may suggest this will not be the flagship Nokia device on Verizon. The Nokia Lumia 822 is a variant of the Lumia 820 and 810. It will support 4G LTE and has a 4 inch 800x480 display, an 8MP primary camera and a front-facing camera.
