Samsung Odyssey and Marco WP8 handsets leak - 4.65
If you thought Nokia will be the only manufacturer with a compelling Windows Phone 8 handset, apparently that thought was premature. The Apple-Samsung trial court filings - the gift that keeps on giving - now revealed a sliver of Samsung's WP8 roadmap as well, and the handsets there sound pretty compelling too.

Samsung Odyssey and Marco WP8 handsets leak - 4.65" HD AMOLED display, LTE, dual-core Snapdragon S4
There are two spotted actually - the Samsung Odyssey and Marco. The Odyssey if the undisputable flagship, indicated by its 4.65" HD Super AMOLED display, 8MP camera, NFC and LTE connectivity, made available by Qualcomm's MSM8960 SoC - this is a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. We heard a rumor that Samsung's WP8 flagship will be as compelling as the Galaxy S III in terms of design and hardware, and Sammy seems poised to deliver,

Samsung Marco keeps it more down to earth with a 4" Super AMOLED screen with 480x800 pixels, 5MP camera, no NFC, but the same 1.5GHz dual-core S4 and LTE connectivity that is in its larger brother. This Qualcomm chip also supports 21Mbps HSPA+ connectivity, and both devices are simply listed as ready for Q4 availability, and we are betting on October/November retail push.

Samsung's Omnia W was amazing. Apart from the fact that you're restricted to 8GB and some perplexingly missing features of the OS.

Hope Nokia will brings ground breaking Windows Phone OS in terms of the design, specification especially(maybe 2.0ghz quad cor, 2gb ram, Graphic cards and etc) and most important the camera like in Nokia 808 pureview.

Windows Phone 8 is based on the Snapdragon S4 plattform. There won't be other SoCs in a while.

Just take a look about how many people got Thumb Down just because they said nothing bad. It's surely the work of Android Defense League (ADL).

Actually, the SGIII is the first Samsung device that has impressed me. If they can bring the same quality to their WP8 devices, then Nokia will for sure have stiff competition. I hope HTC will come up with designs that are on the same quality level as Nokia's and Samsung's! This will be great not only for users, but also for the WP8 platform as a whole!

I'm pretty excited to see the new wp8 handsets the only thing I didn't like about wp7.5 was the way the tiles didn't cover the screen I hated that black strip.
