Verizon has started shipping its Lumia 822 handsets, according to confirmation emails being sent out to customers who have placed an order and are eagerly awaiting their new Nokia Windows Phone. Estimated delivery date? November 15th.
We've had one of said confirmation emails sent in by a reader, which has had personal information stripped (but order numbers have been verified and cross-checked with the order confirmation - both can be seen above). This is good news for those awaiting for Verizon to move its stock, but bad news for AT&T customers who are still battling to find out what's going on with the Lumia 920.
We have heard from some that grey versions of the phone are not shipping due to stock issues, though we cannot confirm that at this time.
We previously looked at Verizon's website, which displays a November 13th shipping date for all Lumia 822 versions) and some of the available HTC 8Xs), so it's good to see the carrier following through with its promise. Nokia's mid-range Lumia 822 is available for $99 with a two-year contract and the flagship HTC 8X will run you twice that, $199, with the same two-year agreement.
Thanks, Jason, for the tip and photo!
