Verizon appears to be readying a Windows Phone 8 announcement of its own. A leaked image from the Evleaks Twitter account shows off a Nokia Lumia phone for Verizon, described as the "Atlas." The image appears to match a leaked 4.3-inch display from earlier this year, with curved corners and a space for a front-facing camera and earpiece. We understand that Verizon is preparing to carry a Lumia 820 variant codenamed Atlas, and that an announcement could be made within days.

T-Mobile recently announced its own Lumia 820 variant, the Lumia 810, which will be available in the coming weeks. According to our own sources, Verizon's Lumia 820 variant will arrive in November alongside the Windows Phone 8X. Previously leaked Verizon information revealed a Lumia 822 device which may provide a hint at the naming of Nokia's Atlas phone for Verizon.

It's not as attractive as either the standard 820 or the 810 IMO. It looks more like a Lumia 610 with that chin.

Yeah, I bet Verizon asked Nokia to tweak the design just so they could stamp their logo on the bottom. Of course it's also just one picture, I'll wait to see a few more but it does look closer to a 610 than a 820.

I don't see why they still allow carriers to brand the phones

They took everything I like about the Lumia line and sucked the life out of it. It's really ugly.

The chin looks like an afterthought. It probably was just to fit the verizon branding on the front of the phone. :/

:laugh:

To be fair, the lower end Lumias (like the 610) always looked a bit cheap and nasty. Of the Wp7.5-based phones I only really liked the look of the 800 and maybe the 900.
