Earlier this week Rogers went live with “online reservations” for the upcoming Samsung ATIV S. They’ve priced this Windows Phone 8 device at $149.99 on a 3-year, but now there’s confirmation of the month-to-month pricing. According to this flyer Rogers is poised to release the ATIV S for $599.99 MTM. Unfortunately there’s still no word on the exact release date. Samsung stated we can expect to see this “in November,” so it looks like it’ll launch next week.

    As much as I like this phone I wont lock myself into a 3yr contract ever and wont pay $600 for a phone as long as there is a NEXUS 4 device out there that gives me more options at a very decent price

      price is not everything.
      you pay a higher price for a better experience.(iphone for example)

      Every article that mentions price means that the Nexus 4 will inevitably be brought up. When Google and LG figure out how to manage a supply chain, maybe it will be worthwhile to discuss the N4 as a worthwhile comparison to any of these other phones

    • Keith

      I find both this and the Nexus 4 are rather lacklusture phones that I wouldn’t want.

    • ICS

      ANY phone that is NOT the N4 is loosing precious time with those risiculous prices.

      They are just making people :more patient” with those high prices.

      If they had a bit of brain they would be reducing their prices while the N4 is out of stock.

      S3-16GB coming to Koodo at $400-$450 on Dec 10th or sooner.

    149$ on a three year contract with an operating system that is unproven? Besides, what does this phone offer over the lumia for 50$ more on contract? Ridiculous.

      Nokia’s gone all in with WP, if it fails they’re essentially dead. For Samsung, WP is a bit of an afterthought. They’re already doing so well with Android that it really doesn’t matter how well this sells. If a few people buy it, good for them, but it’s not a huge concern for them.

    Agreed the Ativ S really is nothing special the design is like samsung had to make it so they are like “Eh why bother” Though this is the only flagship one with a micro sd card slot

    A revolution is beginning… No more butt rape, pick up a nexus and find the best plan that works for you…

  • Is this Bb10?

    Nexus 4 LTE for the win

    • Johnny The Cage

      Bb10 for the LOSE

    I like how n4 is brought up on all topics. so since its so great, Imma go buy it ri- oh wait I can’t cuz LG is garbage and can’t keep up. If Google didn’t asking LG to make this phone, they’d be out on the street by now.

    Only SD expandable memory is the only feature this has over the other premium WP8 handsets. Still no software incentive to get it though :(

    There was a time when you could upgrade your hardware after 2 years which is reasonable, now when you want to upgrade you have to wait the full 3 years even if your phone breaks, or you just want something new. Rogers doesn’t deserve our business and don’t care about us the customer.
