Nokia Lumia 822 + $100 Verizon Wireless Gift Card Giveaway

Update: And the winner is…Jeremy.  I have sent Jeremy an e-mail to respond with his contact information.  Thanks to everyone who entered!

Just last week, Verizon Wireless started shipping the Nokia Lumia 822, which is powered by the new Windows Phone OS.  It has a ton of great features, including:

  • Kids’ Corner. Grants your little ones access only to the apps, games, videos, and music you choose for them, so you can relax and let them play. They can open Kid’s Corner on their own, but your Start screen, apps, and info are protected by a password you set.
  • Nokia Drive+ – Voice Guided, Turn-by-Turn Navigation.
  • Nokia Maps allows you to see a broad area or pinpoint your location.
  • Nokia City Lens uses augmented reality to show you top sights, with review and directions.
  • Nokia Music gives you access to over millions of tracks with subscription-free streaming.
  • EXCLUSIVE Nokia preloads (limited time):
  • ESPN: access live scores, video content, news and ESPN Mobile.
  • Univision app combines their mobile experience into a single hub.
  • The Weather Channel for Windows Phone.
  • Verizon 4G LTE, America’s Fastest 4G Network

  1. I want a smart phone for very first time ever! I only use mine as a work tool. I have blue tooth tech. hearing aides as I have severe hearing lose. My old cell is bluetooth compatable but my newest aides are so advanced that they are not getting along well. With the help of my wife’s hours of comparing we have decided this is the one for me. It has so many great qualities I don’t know where to start. All I know, after many cell phones, I am as excited as a kid at Christmas!!! With my wife’s help, I KNOW I can finally face my smart phone fears. Kind of like holding my kid’s as newborns, with her help my fears finally subsided when they moved out unbroken! I can do this! I must say I am as equally thrilled as the day the kid’s really moved out! Now the fun begins. Thanks Babe for all your reserch and the kid’s! I NEED this phone.

    Personally, I’m looking forward to the expandable memory. I know it’s not really a Nokia feature, but it’s a big one to me. My current phone is getting a little cramped, with its 10 accessible GB struggling to hold my music, movies, and documents.

  25. I’ve been reading some positive things about Nokia’s map app so that is the one I am most interested in. I also have always heard that Nokia makes high quality headsets. There is a part of me that wants my next phone to be a Windows 8 phone but I can’t decide because they still have a fairly limited app store.

  26. Wireless charging sounds awesome!
