Verizon Wireless introduces Nokia Lumia 822 to Fall portfolio 
ESPOO, FINLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/12 --  New Windows Phone 8
smartphone exclusive to Verizon Wireless 
Today, Verizon Wireless and Nokia announced the upcoming availability
of the Nokia Lumia 822 - a powerful Windows Phone 8 smartphone
exclusive to Verizon Wireless. With a unique design, enhanced camera,
world class maps with turn-by-turn navigation and free unlimited music
streaming, the
Nokia Lumia 822 provides Verizon Wireless customers
with high-end smartphone
features on America's largest 4G LTE
network. 
"Bringing the Nokia Lumia 822 to Verizon Wireless allows us to expand
our award
winning Lumia brand to even more customers here in the
United States," said Olivier Puech, President of Nokia Americas.
"With the Nokia Lumia 822, first-time smartphone buyers - and those
ready to switch - will get high-quality
performance on both their
device and Verizon Wireless' incredibly fast 4G LTE
network." 
The Nokia Lumia 822 delivers high-end features in a compact package,
including
an 8MP camera with industry leading optics from Carl Zeiss,
alongside a 1.2MP HD front-facing camera for crystal clear video
calls. The Nokia Lumia 822 also features an exchangeable shell
design, sold separately, which supports wireless
charging. 
The Nokia Lumia 822 also comes with Nokia Drive+, an industry
leading, turn-by-turn voice navigation solution featuring offline
access and pre-loaded US maps - replacing the need for a standalone
personal navigation device. In addition, the Nokia Lumia 822 comes
with Nokia City Lens, the latest addition to the Nokia
location suite
and the start of a new augmented reality experience that
also
enhances Nokia Maps. Along with enhancements to Nokia Transit,
the Nokia location suite of services represents the most
comprehensive, integrated mapping
experience of any smartphone. 
To take advantage of its camera capabilities, the Nokia Lumia 822
supports a
suite of features to make the most out of photos and
videos, available on the
Windows Phone Store for download. Smart
Shoot lets users remove moving objects
and select the best faces for
the perfect shot every time, and Cinemagraph allows users to easily
turn photos into animated GIFs. Panorama makes it easy to capture an
entire
 scene or landscape, while Creative Studio allows users to
easily enhance their pictures with unique, creative effects before
instantly
sharing with friends and family. 
The Nokia Lumia 822 also comes with Nokia Music - a completely
ad-free music
streaming application, requiring no registration, no
log-in or subscription.
Nokia Music allows consumers to enjoy the
songs of their favorite artists without disruption, both online and
offline so consumers can listen to their
favorite playlists anytime,
anywhere.
