If you pre-ordered a Nokia Lumia 822 from Verizon Wireless, rejoice! According to screenshots from Verizon's website, your phone will be shipping out tomorrow ... that is, unless you ordered a red HTC 8X. In that case, you can expect it in another week or so, on November 21. None of this is set in stone, however, so don't go blaming us if it takes a little longer. I went through the steps of choosing a HTC 8X in my region, Massachusetts, and got shipping dates ranging from November 15 to November 21. All of the Nokia Lumia 822s showed up as immediately available.
Verizon will be offering a pretty good assortment of colors for both phones. Both come in three colors: The Lumia 822 in black, grey and white, and the 8X in black, blue and red. Both are 4G and feature Data Sense software, which "tracks how much data you’ve used, how much you have left, optimizes your web browser, and helps you find nearby Wi-Fi hotspots."
Nokia's mid-range Lumia 822 can be had for $99 with a two-year contract and the flagship HTC 8X will run you twice that, $199, with the same two-year agreement.
