    Unless Samsung block it then I see no reason why the Ativ S wouldn't get the update.

    Microsoft doesn't release it to the Ativ S, Samsung and the cell providers do. So the answer probably should be: I hope so.

    I think so, but probably later than the HTC and Nokia.

    I think Windows blue 8.1 update is for Windows 8/RT only, definitely not for Windows Phone 8..........

    Windows Blue is for Windows 8/RT and Windows Phone 8 as they are all based on the same NT core, granted the WP Blue update will look different and have a different feature set but all three OSs should get the update.

    Unlocked Windows Phones of all brands should get the update first though.
