Samsung ATIV S looks like it’ll launch this week, Friday at the very latest


Samsung has had a mild setback with the release of the Windows Phone 8 powered ATIV S. This was originally supposed to land on Canadian soil by the end of November, but go pushed to a “mid-December” release. Well, according to a couple internal docs by both Bell and Rogers, it looks like we might see it become available this week – Friday the 14th at the very latest. In addition, we previously wrote that the dummy devices have arrived in stores and the price has now been set at $79.99 on a 3-year, 599.99 on a month-to-month.

(Thanks tipters!)

    Can’t wait to try it out in stores. Hope it’s not going to make me regret buying the Nokia 920.

      I don’t think it will, the 920′s design is second to none, wireless charging is awesome, and you can’t beat Nokia’s support and software.

      What I do wish the 920 had the the ATIV offers is an AMOLED display, WP looks excellent with vivid colours and deep blacks, I really wish Nokia wouldn’t have taken the LCD route with the 920, even with ClearBlack it can’t match the 900′s deep blacks and super vivid tones.

    Sure took a while…

    It should also be on Telus should it not?

    Still no Whatsapp and Tango for Windows 8…:(

    • 324

      I don’t know about Tango, but WhatsApp is definitely there.

    • Eric

      Whatsapp has been taken off MS MarketPlace and it is still not available…

  • Thomas

    Damn it Telus, first you only get the WP8 device I’m least interested in, and then you won’t even give word on when it’ll be released. Probably going to buy an 8S from Virgin or fairly soon.

    RIP RIM

  • KID ANDROID

    @Firzen sorry but BB10 is going to take a major stand in the new year that will put RIM ahead of Windows- KID ANDROID (Team.Android.Canada)

  • Too Much

    Outright price is wayyyy too expensive for a Windows phone made of plastic.

  • ToxicTaZ

    Telus will have the ATIV S 16GB model on Dec 14/2012.

    Price will be the same…$79. on 3 year or out right $599.

    I wished the 32GB model came to Canada but it seems not?

    The ATIV S is my WP8! :)

    At least it does not have a glass plate on the back of the phone that can break easily like the Nexus 4. Those inbred imbassel employees of Google and LG sure got the last laugh at you morons who bought the Nexus 4 and defend it blindly

  • GlassBackBadIdea

    this makes me wonder. If Inbred imbassels fooled you people into buying a Nexus 4, then you people that bought the Nexus 4 must be dumber than Inbred Imbassels. You people are second or third generation Inbred Imbassels
    haaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaa

    good bye bb, you fared well in the market and now it’s your turn to downsize further..
