    Most recent Samsung rumor- there has been a filing to trademark the "ativ" by Samsung for a Tablet and a Mobile phone, and rumor is they will be the name used on a Windows 8 Tablet and the new top end WP.

    Samsung trademarks Ativ Tab and Ativ S names, may give a peek into its Windows (Phone) 8 world -- Engadget

    Okay, I have to ask: WHAT in the name of the explosions in the Expendable Movies is an "Ativ"?? Are we just making crap up now???

    Still excited by the next Sammy WP, but please, guys, Android gets the Galaxy name which brings the vision of an endless horizon and we get ..... I do not know what!!!

    It's like "active", but without CE.

    You know, since WP8 is no longer using CE for its kernel.

    Okay. I just made that up. But you know a tiny part if you kinda believed it for one second.:D

    That's a good name actually.

    Galaxy = Android/ Android tabs
    Ativ = Windows phone/ Windows 8

    Hey, if that is where they go I am sure I would get used to it. No one really questions the "Atrix" names from Motorola on AT&T, so I am sure it will be fine.

    But where do they come up with this??

    Honestly. that name doesn't have a good catch to it. here's my names for the samsung Series Windows devices

    Samsung Evolution Tab
    Samsung Evolution S
    Samsung Evolution Note
    this has a much better ring to it.

    Evolution series meaning. the way technology is moving into new things. meaning Windows 8 and Windows phone

    Also they should keep the name Omnia. Or even Focus. Both are better than Ativ for tablets and phones

    Ativ is good, it reflects the Live Tiles, always in motion and stuff.

    And it's even a company involved in some respect with smartphones, so it's not like the whole German-grocery-store-"Metro" fiasco. You'd think that Samsung would be tired of the inside of courtrooms by now. As long as they're just making up words, why not make one up that nobody else is using?

    It's not like the Focus name lit the world on fire. I think we have just about exhausted all the aspirational cell phone names out there. It's not like I love Ativ, but I don't think it's the worst thing ever. I'd like to see Samsung build a name brand that carries with the strength of Galaxy. Something that will hold up.

    That would be kind of funny. Jump to WP yo avoid lawsuits, then pick a product name that gets you sued. :lol:

    They should name it Gzusor. Just hit random keys in the keyboard and I made a name that is better for them legally. I now just await my consultation fee of..
    . $1.05 billion.

    I KNOW, RIGHT???

    Who wrote the stupid law in mobile that says the working name of a device has to be changed when it is released?? I commented a couple of times I think Odyssey Series would have been great for WP devices!!

    I feel so ripped off......

    Ativ just doesn't roll off the tongue. I don't care if it's a made up word, just make it smooth to say.

    They put the name in a cap and draw them that way..

    The name Ativ sound like some old person drink to get them active.

    Odyssey sounds more like a phone to me..

    Actually you make a point inadvertently, the Ativ will probably be mistaken for the Atrix, which is obviously associated with droids. Def not the best name IMO. (But hey, I'm not a fan of Samsung so no surprise there :D )

    Edit: this is how you name something, with a word that actually has a meaning and is relevant to the message you want to send about your product:

    Nice hardware and the design is not a total port of the Galaxy SIII. Seems to be a nice phone. But I hope Nokia can do better. I also like the name of this phone, better than Focus for sure.
