Verizon has a couple of Windows Phone devices lined up for the remainder of this year. This includes the Nokia Lumia 822, the HTC 8X and presumably the Samsung ATIV Odyssey whose press rendering what leaked not too long ago. We know that the 8X has been priced at $199, with the Lumia 822 at $99, but how much can consumers expect to pay for the ATIV Odyssey? In an interview with The Verge, Verizon’s CMO Tami Erwin was quoted as saying, “there will be a $99 and a $199 [Windows Phone option] and ultimately before the end of the year we will have a device that comes in at the free [price] point.” Given that the 8X and Lumia 822 have both been revealed and priced, we can only assume that the free price point is in reference to the Samsung ATIV Odyssey. Of course there isn’t any confirmation at this point in time, but it certainly sounds like a safe bet. However if this is indeed the case, we guess the ATIV Odyssey will be a good place to start for people looking to hop aboard the Windows Phone 8 bandwagon without having to spend too much money.
