Samsung, HTC, Huawei and Nokia will be the first manufacturers to announce Windows Phone 8 devices. Nokia is holding an event in New York City on September 5th, which is where they are expected to announce a couple WP8 devices. As for Samsung, previous reports indicated that we could see a tablet and two new Windows Phone 8 handsets, specifically the GT-I8750 “Odyssey,” and the mid-range GT-I8730 “Marco”.
A bit more evidence might might have surfaced for the branding direction Samsung is heading towards. For their Android lineup Samung has the “Galaxy” family of devices – this includes tablets, players, and smartphones. If the trademark is correct then you can expect to see “Ativ Tab” and “Ativ S” be the names of their Windows devices in the near future. Of course, the names have not been confirmed by Samsung, but everything should hopefully reveal itself tomorrow at their Unpacked event.
