Samsung ATIV

With all the excitement about Windows 8, many people have forgot about Windows Phone 8 which is supposed to be launching before Christmas.
On Wednesday 29th August, Samsung announced that they will be returning to the Windows Phone market with the new Samsung ATIV S.
It has a gigantic 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and comes with a micro-SD slot (as standard with Windows Phone 8). Samsung says they are going to make a 16GB and a 32GB model.
The release date and the price hasn't been announced yet however I can imagine because of the specs and screen size, it will cost around £450.

This Windows Phone has 2 big brothers who are Windows 8 Tablets. The Windows RT version called Ativ Tab and the Windows 8 Pro version called Ativ Smart PC Pro.
Not much information has been released about these 2 tablets either however we do know that the Ativ Tab will have a 5MP camera, a 10.1-inch screen and it has really good viewing angles.
We know practically nothing about the Ativ Smart PC Pro, we only know that it is compatible with the Samsung S-Pen and it runs the better version of Windows 8 (Windows 8 Pro).
