Announced a few days ago, the world’s first Windows Phone 8 running Samsung ATIV S smartphone is now up for preorders. Featuring a massive 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD Display, the handset, at the moment, can be found for preorders through Netherlands’ online retailer PDAShop.nl.
Powered by 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, the ATIV S packs an 8MP back snapper with LED flash and auto focus, and a 1.9MP front-facing shooter. There’s also a huge Li-ion 2,300mAh battery. Check our short review here for more.
Available in black, at the time being, the ATIV S is priced at 549 Euro (around $690). Though, the site doesn’t give any detail regards shipping date. That does because the Microsoft’s latest operating system is still due to be launched on October 29, so we suspect the phone’s arrival at the same time frame.
We also suspect the price tag to get lower when it launches. If you however want to put your stake in the sand, see the page here. Meanwhile, stay tuned for additional details.
