    Interesting: The OP mentioned that the ATIV S in Germany is the same cost as the Lumia 820.

    Woah what?? Your company doesn't care about the awesome Nokia exclusives like Nokia Drive it seems ๐Ÿ˜ž

    Ativ S is a release and dump phone for Samsung to reduce patent licensing fee on Android it seems.

    haha Nokia Drive isn't exclusive. It's available to all W8Phones. In American Nokia has their nose up Att ***. So F them. I have a 925 and ATIV S on T-Mobile. Identical apps and same live tiles. If I unplug them both at 7AM my Nokia is about dead at 11AM. My ATIV S last until about 5-6 PM. My 920 died quick too. I even swapped the 925 out with T-Mobile. It just don't last.
    So until Nokia puts a phone out than can last all day I'll stick with my superior Samsung.

    The Samsung Ativ S is really cheap now.
    What's HandyUpdate in the photo? Mine is Phone Update. Are they the same?

    The ativ s is one of the phones with the best price/quality balance, so, no for the price difference between the nokia devices and the samsung device I can buy for about $200 of apps

    It's German for "cell phone update" or "mobile phone update."

    If the Samsung is the same cost as a 820, I would buy the ativ all day long! Good to see stuff like this. In an exchange environment, wp8 is really a good choice. I'd love to see IT pick up these phones more.

    279.95 Canadian is still an awesome deal. Samsung must be ridiculously over stocked and is wanting to dump them asap. Carriers around here no longer offer them - Nokia moved in hard and fast.

    Not entirely true. Some models do.

    Exactly, the T899M and ATIV S Neo both support LTE. I think that 4G is just a gimmick at the moment as speeds, here in the UK at least, are at the lowest end of what LTE is capable of running at. LTE in the UK has very limited coverage as well.

    I see much greater speeds on LTE in Canada on the Bell network. Easily twice what I was getting on HSPA+.

    It's out already but as updates roll out based on IMEI number you might not get it as soon as it's released. If you have a developer account then you can get the developer preview which is the final release minus Samsung Firmware.

    That's in Canada though, where LTE has been around much longer. In the UK it's still rolling out so speeds and coverage aren't great over here in the UK yet.
