I talked about WP8 not windows mobile which never got to be promoted the way android, ios or even wp8 are but the tears obstructed you from reading right.

The major flaws of Android are the need of more computing power to be smooth as WP IOS (given the multi platform ability it was expected, so what?) and the damned fragmentation, still, a major flaw only to developers and Sony buyers.

This device will prove to be a major strategic issue for Samsung with wider ramifications that its humble launch glosses over. Put simply, if this device sells very well, which is very possible given its excellent hardware configuration underpinning the powerful operating system it powers, it will place immense pressure at boardroom level for the company to consider in the medium to long term to focus on investing more heavily in Windows Phone and not relying too much on Android, for which it sacrificed its own commitment to the in-house Bada OS. However, Android has certainly for now provided much needed revenue for Samsung as it deals with challenging market conditions for its other product divisions.

If this platform is so futureless why have Samsung, Htc, Huawei invested in it? You give WP8 the same treatment Android was given when it first appeared but back then it was so crappy it couldn't compete with high end phones and now just look at it...it still can't:)

And their fans are too immature they register in GSMarena to give their lousy 920 10/10 in votes which is really desire 2/10, hopefully GSMarena make editors' vote and equals 50% of total result.

So many hater on this article.

I've owned iPhone 3GS, Galaxy S2, Omnia 7 and Omnia 7 is the most satisfying handset I have owned until now. The Metro UI is fluid, simple. but elegance. People Hub is the best social App available on any platform. IE browser also provide best mobile browser experience. Music player is also spot on. It has less number of applications on WP but it has all the main stream applications & games that I use on daily basis.

wow! finally here it comes!

i don't really care for what haters gonna say about Samsung or even about Windows Phone 8. all i know is that this Samsung Ativ S really catched my attention with it's slim and light design.

of course i love the windows phone 8 new user interface. i have been looking on this UI since WP7 but i don't have any chance to grab one.

now, since i'm planning to get a new phone, this would definitely be the only candidate. i like nokia lumia 920 way before this Ativ S has been announced. but i changed my mind now for Samsung's.

whatever you're gonna say, i'll stick to my choice because this is what i like, and i really don't think android fits me. i'm different.

i can't wait to grab one! *cheers*

Samsung is releasing this to prove Android is better.
Just like HTC range of WP are sale fails.
HTC android powered Butterfly is showing people want it.

With the 8 core Samsung S4 next year this WP phone will be very laggy with stuttering when compared to androids true power.
