The Verizon Lumia 822 (all right, so it is not formally known as the Lumia 822, but generally, the tech community has taken the liberty to call the handset just that) is a variant of the Lumia 820 from Nokia, and word on the street has it that the Lumia 822 will retail for approximately $50 as long as you decide to sign up with a mobile carrier. Whispers on the street include 16GB of internal memory, although you can further augment that with a microSD memory card slot, nothing too far off from the global version of the Nokia Lumia 820 actually. Not only that, the Verizon Lumia 822 is also said to deliver wireless charging support.
On the software front, you will find Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive (in addition to arguably most of the other Nokia-specific offerings) being made available on the Lumia 822. We do hope that Verizon Wireless will step forward with more official details on the Verizon Lumia 822 in due time, considering how the Windows Phone 8 launch date is inching closer with every second. Someone ought to be able to spot a pre-order page being displayed pretty soon.
