KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung's first Windows Phone 8 handset, the Samsung Ativ S has been delayed until mid-December.
So says UK retailer Clove, which has updated its preorder page for the Samsung Ativ S to reveal that the handset won't start shipping until the week commencing 10 December, despite expectations for a release early this month. If this is true, the delay could spell bad news for Samsung, as Windows Phone fans flock to buy the Nokia Lumia 920 or HTC Windows Phone 8X handsets instead.
The reason behind the setback remains a mystery, and Samsung has yet to respond to our request for confirmation.
The Samsung Ativ S might have been the first Windows Phone 8 handset to be announced, but it looks like it will be one of the last to go on sale this year. The device features a 4.8in Super AMOLED display along with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 2,300mAh battery.
There's also an 8MP rear-facing camera with HD 1080p video, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot and integrated NFC technology.

- I've ordered a L920 from Clove but still have my pre-order in place on the ATIV S on Amazon UK - they've emailed and updated the product page today, planning to ship from November 20th. Not sure if it'll change again but if anyone is waiting, it's potentially going to be available next week.11-13-2012 06:45 AM
