Lumia 822 official on Verizon

Nokia (and Verizon) this morning announced the Lumia 822 for the largest carrier in the United States.

The 822, in addition to having 4G LTE data, also sports an 8MP rear camera and 1.2MP shooter up front. Plus, there's wireless charging.

Odd is that Nokia hasn't yet moved an official picture of the 822, and Verizon's completely mum on its in. There's also no word on pricing or availability. But we've got the full presser after the break, and we'll update with the rest when we get it. Nokia has revealed a price tag of just $99 when taken on contract.

Welcome to the newly updated Windows Phone Central

68

As Microsoft gets set to officially launch Windows Phone 8, we're happy to unveil some site updates of our own on Windows Phone Central.

More updates are coming soon to our forums, store and already-awesome app, but if you're reading this on the full desktop site you're now witnessing the new look and feel of WPCentral.com. We've upgraded to the latest version of VISOR, our Mobile Nations content management system, and we've given the site a fresh look. We've even mixed in a little inspiration from the Metro UI.

Heads Up: We'll be taking the blogs offline for a couple hours tonight as we push out some exciting site upgrades!

13

* Update: OK, We're back online! We're still working through some of the final upgrade steps, so don't mind the mess. We'll do a follow up blog post here soon going through the details as soon as we're done. Thanks for the patience! *

With so much changing in the world of Windows Phone, it only makes sense we make some changes around Windows Phone Central too. 

We have lots of exciting upgrades planned for WPCentral.com, including enhancements to the blogs, forums, store and app. We'll be rolling out a full set of changes over the next week, and we're getting started tonight with some major updates to the blog.

We'll be taking the homepage offline at approximately 9pm ET for roughly two hours, as we push out an update to the our blog CMS along with a fresh new look for the site. We'll fill you in on the details once we're back up. During the upgrade the forums should still be accessible (if you're currently logged in) as will be the store

Thanks for the patience. And we'll be welcoming you back soon with a better than ever site!

Reminder: Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 Launch is today

94

Just a quick reminder that today Microsoft will officially launch Windows Phone 8.  The launch event is being held in San Francisco and is slated to start at 10AM PST / 1PM EST.  Microsoft will show off to the world their new mobile OS originally code named ‘Apollo’.

Along with all the Windows Phone goodness, maybe availability and pricing will come into better focus from the various carriers slated to carry these new devices.

Whatever may develop, Windows Phone Central will of course be there in sunny San Francisco to cover the event and bring you all the news as it happens. Afterwards, we're off to BUILD 12 the very next day to continue our Windows Phone 8 coverage.

Nokia Music updated to version 3.5 with minor improvements

22

You can count on Nokia to keep on fine tuning their own apps, each version brings us a step closer to perfection. Today an update is heading out for Nokia Music, their free to listen music service.

The release notes for version 3.5 are scant but we suspect this is version isn’t serving up any new features as the release app notes still show the same features as in version 3.0 which we reported on back in July.
