Its been barely three months since Verizon launched the Nokia Lumia 822 for $99.99 on a two-year contract, and now the U.S. carrier has decided to offer the smartphone for free.

Earlier in Dec, 2012, Verizon decided to drop the price of the Lumia 822 to just $49.99 in a bid to match the Best Buy offer. Now, with the carrier offering the smartphone for free, the deal can't get any better, especially considering that a no-contract handset will set you back by $450. Those in the U.S. who are looking to snag a WP8-powered Nokia handset, hop over to your nearest Verizon store and sign-up for a two-year contract with the carrier.

The Lumia 822 measures 5.03 x 2.69 x 0.44 inches and weighs 4.97oz. The Lumia 822 also packs in an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss autofocus primary camera with dual-LED flash, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing snapper, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board memory with the option to expand via microSD card, and an 1800mAh battery.
