Verizon has two Windows Phone 8 devices on sale right now: the HTC 8X, and the Nokia Lumia 822. The devices hit the $199 and $99 price points, but Verizon still wants to hit that important free tier. The Verge is reporting that Verizon has told them they will be offering a free Windows Phone 8 handset before the end of the year.
They did not say what that device will be, but we have a pretty good idea. At the Windows Phone 8 launch event a slide went up that showed the 8X, Lumia 822, and ATIV Odyssey for Verizon. Yesterday we saw photos of the Odyssey that looked very mid-range. Putting all this together points to the Odyssey being the free phone.
Is anyone waiting for the Odyssey?
