Samsung registers names for new Windows tablets and phones
The other trademarked moniker, the Samsung Ativ S will probably be used for a range of high-end Windows Phone 8 smartphones. It's simple really, Samsung Galaxy S represents the Korean manufacturer's high-end Android phones while the Samsung Ativ S does the same for its Windows Phone 8 handsets. Make any sense?
The good thing is that we are just days away from the start of IFA which means we should know the answers to all of your questions really, really soon.

It's "Vita" backwards, being Latin for "life." "Efil" would sound even worse.

Andromeda would be a cool trademark.
or better yet,
"samsung nova s" hahaha

Samsung is abandoning Bada and putting the Tizen platform on hold for now. They will instead be focusing all their efforts on Android and Windows Phone, only.

Sounds like it'd be a cousin of the Atrix.
What was wrong with Focus? Why not Galaxy Windows, or Viewport (space + window) or something that isn't gibberish?

"Hey, Fred, everyone is busy with this lawsuit thing at home office and they want use to name the new Windows line."
"How about Atrix, Barney?"
"Ummmm,.....let's see...... Nope- that one is taken. They asked us not to do anything that might get us sued. Our lawyers are really busy."
"Well just change a couple letters. It will be fine. Let's do some burgers."

They are not moving away from Android. They're supporting WP8 also.
