Well, that didn't take long. Only minutes after press images of it leaked on the web, the Samsung Ativ S was publicly unveiled during the Unpacked event that the company is hosting tonight in Berlin. What we have on our hands is the first officially announced smartphone powered by Windows Phone 8. And boy, isn't it a doozy!...

As a current owner of a Galaxy SII (who is confused as to how it became so popular considering the poor build quality and ridiculously dis-functional touchwhiz UI) I just don't see how this phone will be able to take windows phone to the next level. Also, It will probably be taken off the shelves due to the fact that it looks more like the iphone than the galaxy sII does. Hopefully Nokia (Purview) or HTC (Sense) can come out with something better, I need a reason to change to windowsphone.

I am wondering why they didn't use this design for Galaxy S3.....Really tempting me to jump onto windows platform...

Sorry, big Sammy user here, but am I the only 1 seeing a 3gs resemblance? This looks more like the iPhone than any of the Galaxy SII series. Questionable considering what happened last week.

Ok, just saw the back. I do love the back, agree the SIII would have looked good with this. Would be a shame to put a case on this beauty!
