Samsung Ativ S Now Available For Pre-Order


Order today for delivery on 21/12! Yes, 21/12!

Phones4U and Clove both now have the Ativ S for pre-order. Phones4U are advising a delivery date of 21st December 2012, while Clove are advising that stock is delayed until the 10th December 2012!

Expansys on the other hand are advising they can get you one within 5 days but, well, that's Expansys for you...

I don't know who to believe, and if the Phones4U date is the correct one I cant help but feel that Samsung have screwed up their Windows Phone 8 launch as it was the first Windows Phone 8 device announced.

The Samsung Ativ S Features:
  • 4.8" super AMOLED display
  • 8MP camera with autofocus and LED flash
  • MicroSD slot
  • 16GB internal storage
  • Wi-Fi & Wi-Fi Direct
  • DLNA
  • 3.5mm port
  • Stereo FM Radio
Clove and Expansys have priced it at £442.80 and £449.99 respectively, while Phones4U are offering it as free on a £33 a month 24 month contract.

Bear in mind that Expansys often use imports from elsewhere in Europe, so this may explain the discrepancy in the dates.

If anyone is still holding out for this, let us know in the comments!

Windows Phone 8 doesn't support FM radio, so not sure on that being listed in the features.
