Fortunately, those who are still waiting patiently for the Samsung ATIV S to arrive might be able to get one very soon. An anonymous tipster reports that Bell retail stores in Canada have received ATIV S dummy units, meaning that the real deal is surely on its way. The carrier will be offering the smartphone for $80 on a three-year contract.
Some markets in Europe, however, are still not expected to get the Samsung ATIV S before January of 2013. In the U.K., the smartphone is said to be coming on or around December 10. Several online retailers are already accepting pre-orders, offering the device for about $600 to $650 off contract. In the U.S., Verizon is expected to get the Samsung Odyssey
before the year is out. This smartphone is believed to be a variant of the ATIV S tailored to the carrier's preferences.
