The phone Samsung Ativ S was presented during the IFA held in August this year, there could be said to be on the market before the end of 2012. Apparently, the Korean company is close to failing to meet the stated date for the arrival of your bet for the operating system Windows Phone 8.
As indicated in UnwiredView , the terminal called i8750 , the expected arrival of the year for this room will not occur. And his base to indicate this is very solid, and he cites a statement by the heads of Samsung in the presentation of the range Ativ in Taiwan in stating that it will be in January 2013, or somewhat later , brother this device will available in their first units.
Incidentally, in that same event noted one of the best kept secrets on Samsung Ativ S: its price. This will be about $ 650 , so their focus will be on the high end, as its price is not exactly economical. Of course, to be seen whether operators opt for this model and generate attractive offers for him (something that seems to be very viable, because the Microsoft operating system, Windows Phone 8 , is arousing curiosity among users and especially Thanks to the good performance of Nokia Lumia 920).
As indicated, the reasons for the delay are not compatibility issues or any component is not working as it should. What happens is that Samsung Ativ S includes the same screen Galaxy S3, a panel SuperAMOLED of 4.8 inches, and what happens is that the production lines of the company are not able to meet the minimum required for launch. Therefore, it seems that the Koreans have not right to forecasts.
And, the truth is that this is a very interesting device and that, at least, may be a viable option to compete with both HTC 8X or new Lumia. An example of his ability is that includes a dual-core SoC 1.5 GHz , 1 GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 8 megapixel rear camera (1.9 Megapixel front) and a 2300 mAh battery . Not too bad, right?
