Microsoft, via the Windows Blog, has given us a heads up that tomorrow Friday November 9th Verizon will make pre-ordering available for both the midrange Nokia Lumia 822 and the high-end HTC 8X. Pre-order pages should go live at 1:00AM EST. The Lumia 822 will cost $99 (after $50.00 mail-in rebate) for a two year contract and the HTC 8X will cost $199. The red and black models of the 8X are Verizon exclusives. I’m not entirely sure why Verizon is choosing to go the mail-in rebate route as that usually means customers just have another hassle to overcome. In any case its nice to see Big Red gearing up to get Windows Phones into the hands of anxious customers.
