Best Buy offers Samsung ATIV Odyssey for low, low price of zero
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.

Verizon's Samsung ATIV Odyssey is free on contract from Best Buy

Verizon's Samsung ATIV Odyssey is free on contract from Best Buy

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.

PA Team - Typo "The 5GB rear-facing camera captures video at 1080p ".. you meant 5MP :)

Thanks! After a while, you just want to write GB after any number. Even after we give out our phone number we put GB after it.

Must be something native with an Iphone number cuz' I never do that. But thanks for clarifying because I definitely would have gone out in search of that "5GB" Samsung camera phone.

Uh, that was a joke! Just trying to point out that most of the time when we have numbers ina story, it is followed up by GB. Also, I don't own an Apple iPhone.

Well color me purple with embarrassment, [YOU] don't own an Apple Iphone? Then, what's the basis for all the Iphone stories you write on PA??

And, more importantly, if you really don't have an Apple Iphone, I think I'm in ♡........

the part that is disapointing for me is that in 2013 this "new" phone is coming out with only a 5mp camera and a tiny 4inch screen to compete against the other wp phones that have bigger screens and better cameras. I just dont think samsung put their all into this phone.

I hear ya & wouldn't want anything less then a 5mp myself but remember it's not all abt the mp's. Ive switched back to android & loving the Lg Optimus L9 on Tmobile no contract & it's 5mp takes better shots then others ive had with a higher count. This Samsung windowsphone just doesn't seem to be good that good all around. Look at phonescoops review & there more accurate I think with reviews. They say the display is awful..

Sign the deal, sell the phone and buy a Nexus 4, and you have a Nexus 4 for free.

Yes, then he will have a contact with Verizon and have a GSM phone. That's a great idea!

I would personally dig a little deeper and try to find $100 so I could buy an 8X. What a lot of people disregard is that a cell phone is a 2 year investment and while I understand that some feel cheated for paying for the phone and the plan, paying that extra $100 can score you a much better device and make your monthly payments feel more worthwhile. (Even though you're still being ripped off)

I should add: If you are not willing to spend any money, I would look in to the free Nokia Lumia 822 (8mp camera, 16GB memory) or if you're not completely dedicated to Windows the Free Motorola Droid M from Bestbuy or $50 Droid Razr Maxx.
