It seems that the first Windows Phone 8-powered handset from South Korean conglomerate, Samsung, has hit yet another snag – it has been delayed, at least according to the good people over at SamMobile. The anonymous source tipped them off that Samsung will start to ship the ATIV S from week 52 onwards – which would mean that it is the last week of the year, and that translates to the ATIV S being delayed. Folks who have already placed an order for the ATIV S and were looking forward to using a spanking new handset this Christmas would definitely be disappointed, and for those of us living across the pond in Europe, you might even have to wait all the way until January next year.
Is there a reason for the delay? Well, some think that because the Samsung Galaxy S3 is such a hot seller at this point in time, and since the ATIV S shares a similar display as that of the Galaxy S3, Samsung might have pushed back the ATIV S’ release due to a production switch in build and materials.
