A year ago I wouldn’t have even looked at a Windows phone, the more i read about the platform and the hardware, it seems Microsoft may be getting thier act together on the mobile platform and i’m seriously interested in this device.
Fresh off a legal setback to its Android (s goog) devices, Samsung is now turning its attention to Windows Phone, debuting the world’s first Windows Phone 8 device, the Ativ S. The South Korean conglomerate showed off the new device at the IFA show in Berlin, stealing some thunder from Nokia (s nok), which was expected to unveil a Windows Phone 8 (s msft) phone next week in New York.
The Ativ S is similar to Samsung’s flagship Android device — the Galaxy S III — and shows that the phone maker is taking Windows Phone seriously. It sports a 4.8-inch, 1280×720 Super AMOLED display, a 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus and an LED flash and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. Users will also get HSPA＋42 connectivity, a MicroSD-card slot, NFC, 1 GB of RAM and storage options of 16 and 32 GB and a 2,300mAh battery.
