Windows Phone 8 Samsung Ativ S

If you’re interested in trying out Windows Phone 8 but are a little put-off by the loud colors that the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC Phone 8X are available in, then you may want to check out Samsung’s Windows Phone 8 device — the ATIV S.

A quick glance at the Samsung ATIV S will immediately reveal its design similarities with the Galaxy S3. Yugatech notes that the device “features a lot of design elements that are also found in the Galaxy S III like the unique Titanium Gray color scheme and the brushed metal effect on the back.” It’s not really that surprising, considering that the ATIV S is meant to be the Galaxy S3’s Windows Phone 8 counterpart. This means that you’ll also be getting premium specs with the device. Check them out:

  1. This is a great phone, but if Nokia can come up with better pricing just like in the US, then it would be the deal breaker.
