So, I have been patiently waiting for the Ativ s, I raved about it to anyone who would listen on the topic, and was extremely excited... But as we still have no word for the US market, and I am not spending $500+ on a phone, it looks like my upgrade is going to have to be a Nokia 920... I dont like it much, but do not want to jump off of the windows phone bandwagon just yet, so I am stuck...
It is a shame really, I was so hopeful, but on I must move.
Has anyone else been forced to make a similar decision due to the lack of info from Sammy?

I too was interested in the Ativ S. I keep seeing it used in the images for posts here on WPCentral but there has been no indication that any carrier in the USA will offer it. The only two Windows Phones I am interested in are this one and the Nokia Lumia 920. One doesn't seem to be coming and the other is, once again for Nokia, an AT&T exclusive. Thus, I have a Note 2 with Verizon and will hold onto it.

The weight, thickness, expandable storage, removable battery, larger screen.
The weight and thickness are huge for me coming from a Focus S, having messed around with a family members 920, it feels like a cinder block.
Thankfully I was not able to get to the ATT store as I just saw the specs for the S4... And wow it blows the 920 away... :( looks like I may have to jump the windows phone boat, just keep my focus S to play with when I miss it.

what are you talking about I got my Samsung Ativ S i8750 at the first of the year first week in January. Just got it unlocked on line. There are many places that will sell you one. I got mine before the price went up. $589.50 from Negri Electronics. But this phone is well worth the price. Amazing PHONE!!!

I believe the us version is supposed to be called the ativ odyssey, not sure why the name change, but last rumour I heard was Verizon sometime in April. Or if you know someone here in Canada or close to it to grab you one. The version here operates on hspa+ network. Hope that helps.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is garbage. If you cant find a Ativ S, get a Samsung S3 or HTC OneX+ Android. The HTC 8X also work fine.*** Forza Windows Phone 8 ***
