Nokia Lumia 822 torn down, working LTE radio found inside

Allow us to take this time to poke fun at our Android friends. Over the weekend the Google Nexus 4 was torn down, and even though the device famously does not have LTE support they found an LTE chip inside.

The Lumia 822 for Verizon was torn down in a similar fashion, and an LTE chip was also found. The difference here is that the Lumia 822 can actually use LTE. A mid-range Windows Phone device has LTE, and a flagship Nexus phone does not. What a strange world we live in. Hit the source link for more gory photos of the Lumia 822 being torn apart.

    Well the thing is that Google has other priorities; the Nexus 4 is not really meant to be a high-end device. It is crazy affordable (pretty much a pre-paid phone), for one, and the main focus is software and flexibility. There are many… MANY mid and low-end Android phones with 4G LTE too. They just sit in different categories.
