    It supposedly uses a slightly smaller 4.65" screen, so it shouldn't be impacted by that.

    That could even be a reason why Verizon went with a different screen size. Just postulating here, but they may have realized the GS3 would cannibalize production of the ATIV S. I know they think about this type of stuff.

    MacPhisto, do you have any idea what the Odyssey will actually look like? Hopefully nothing like the leaked images back in October (which I understand are actually the Marco?).

    Verizon's really trying to suck me in. Just got an email. the 822 is now $49.99 on contract, and I have a $50 new every two.

    So yeah I am currently suffering with a TP2 in which the screen doesn't always work. Right now I am using My mobile to see the display. I thought the rumors had it for this week for VZW to announce the Odyssey? I just need to see if its a high end phone or not (then I go with HTC 8X).

    My last two TP2 came from eBay. I keep a spare normally, but now I am waiting.

    Has anyone checked a store to see if there is any new info or anything on this today? I'd prefer this phone, but next week is my deadline, so if it's not out by then I'm going back to an 8X.

    I may stop by tonight, but I have heard zero and I am in the same boat as you.

    I'd like to get this phone too (assuming it's a good one), but I'm thinking it won't come till January at this point, though. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but usually all the "holiday" phones are out by now, and at this point they are focusing on sales until after Christmas is over. Launching a new device this close to Christmas doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Still absolutely nothing on this... I was really hoping this week at the latest.

    Same. Even if I hear a firm release date announced this week I would be happy. Not knowing is the worse!

    Ditto to both statements (the amazement for lack of info and wanting some kind of release date estimate). I'm eager to get one. I feel like a junkie as I check around for news on this everyday. :/

    It's not firm because Samsung has not provided a firm date for delivery to Verizon and they have been focused on delivering GS3's for the Christmas season.

    I am stuck with Verizon for work, but really want a hero device. I may just go with a 822 if nothing comes by the end of the month.

    The way things are playing out for the ATIV Odyssey is very reminiscent of what happened when my Omnia II came out...rumors and delays and then finally it came out way after the fact. I'm still running my Omnia 2 until things settle. I was zeroed in on the 920 but didn't want to switch carriers and the 822 is very interesting but I'll hold out a little longer possibly.

    Samsung is taking FOREVER with their phones. I heard about the HTC phone (later ended up being the 8X) in like May of 2012. Then in September is when a higher up told me about the prepaid Marco. At least HTC delivered within the same month as launch. Sheesh.

    As no other US Carrier is even rumored to pick up a Samsung WP, the Odyssey is a very interesting device for those of us with a Focus series WP7. Very interested to see what it brings.

    Hope we get a firm guess (see what I did there? No reason to set the bar too high for Big Red and Sammy) sometime in the first week of the new Year.

    IMO Samsung releasing Windows Phones is just them hedging their bets. They are full steam ahead Android (and now starting Tizen), so I would not expect any priority given to WP no matter what they say. For the same reasons, I would not expect anything innovative in a Samsung phone like Nokia has offered us.

    The less OEMs the better. I wish HTC can bring specs like the Droid DNA to WP8, minus the 16gb stuff.

    4" 800x480 Amoled Screen
    1 GB RAM
    8 GB Internal with SD slot
    2100mAh battery
    no wireless charging

    Samsung had an opportunity to really knock one out of the park and extend their Android dominance into a new ecosystem. Something like a Note 2, running WP8, would have been HUGE for WP. Instead we get this... sigh

    Nope, check the front page. Just a mid-range device with no differentiating features except for maybe the 2100mah battery. Even then, I'd take the 822 over the Odyssey any day of the week just knowing how well built Nokia devices are and how plasticky Samsung devices are.

    The Odyssey isn't even going to be a good mid range phone, that's sad. I'd say it is competitive with the 620/8s in that it has the faster CPU and more RAM but the build and design are terrible. At entry level you're probably going to get more people looking at those 2 things than CPU/RAM. This phone is going to be a bust.
