If the Windows Phone 8 device that you have set your eyes on and no other is the Samsung Ativ Odyssey, then we have good news for you – assuming you are fine with whatever carrier the smartphone is attached to, that is. In a nutshell, the Samsung Ativ Odyssey will be making its way to Verizon Wireless stores from tomorrow onwards, where it will cost you just $50 after a $50 mail-in rebate and you agreeing to a new two year service contract, of course.
Originally announced at Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 launch event last fall, here is a quick recap on what the Samsung Ativ Odyssey will bring to the table, or rather, into the palm of your hand. This is a 4” device that will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, sport a 5-megapixel camera at the back with a 1.2-megapixel shooter in front, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, and a connection to Verizon’s 4G LTE data network. The 2,100 mAh removable battery should be able to get the Samsung Ativ Odyssey going for the entire day of serious use before requiring a charge.
