The Samsung ATIV Odyssey
has just gone on sale and already it can be purchased for the low, low price of zero
from Best Buy. Of course, to take advantage of the deal, you will have to be handcuffed to Verizon for a couple of years. But unlike other deals, you do not have to be a brand new Verizon customer. Even if you're merely adding a line to an existing account, or upgrading a phone on a current line, you are eligible for the deal.
The Samsung ATIV Odyssey offers you a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution and a 233ppi pixel density. The dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 processor is under the hood with the Adreno 225 GPU crunching graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board and there is 8GB of native storage that can be expanded using the 64GB capacity microSD slot. The 5MP rear-facing camera captures video at 1080p while the 1.2MP shooter up front is great for egotists shooting self-portraits. A 2100mAh battery is included. If you dare break the contract, the ETF amounts to $350, and you can order the phone online and pick it up at the closest Best Buy store to you.
It is not every day that you are offered the opportunity to pick up a brand new model for zero, but let's face it, this handset is coming late to the Windows Phone 8 game. In addition, the ATIV Odyssey has to go up against the Nokia Lumia 822
and the HTC Windows Phone 8X on Verizon, so some incentive is needed.
