The ATIV S might’ve been the star of the show last month, but Samsung still hasn’t managed to get the high-end Windows Phone onto U.S. carrier shelves. In its place comes the ATIV Odyssey, a mid-tier model for Verizon Wireless we took a quick look at in Vegas. It’s this midrange handset, and not the bigger ATIV S, that lays claim to the title of first Samsung-built Windows Phone 8 device for the U.S. market.
Specs are predictably underwhelming, with a 4-inch 800×480 Super AMOLED display, 5MP primary camera, and 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU backed up by a solitary gig of RAM, but there are bright spots, too: a Micro SD card slot provides storage expansion, and the phone comes packing LTE for fast 4G connectivity.
Stay tuned for further editorials and videos covering the ATIV Odyssey in greater detail, including a comparison or two and our Quick Review treatment. In the meantime, take a gander at what’s inside the red box, and throw your questions and comments down below!
