    Well, just remove the "ATIV" from the name. This is just disappointing. Add the ATIV S to Verizon's line up, and it is the best lineup that they could produce. This just adds nothing. No reason to get this over the 822 unless you hate Nokia or love 4" screens.

    As for your specific predictions? I predict there will be NO HTC 8S for verizon at all. AFAIK, the 8S does not have an LTE radio. I can't see Verizon stocking one unelss they are able to get a version with LTE. I am going to continue to assume that Verizon will not have a "high end" Samsung WP8 device this year.

    So my own prediction (based on zero inside information, but only historical trends), is that Verizon's line-up through the end of this year will be the 822, 8X and "mid range" Samsung "Odyssey"

    I would absolutley LOVE to eat some crow on my own prediction. Really, I hope you are right Mr. MacPhisto...but Verizon has me so jaded that I will refuse to believe it until I see it.
    I hate to say "I told you so" Mr. MacPhisto....but my own prediction above (with ZERO inside info...only based on Verizon's historic track record) is correct...with the exception that the odyssey is of course a month late.

    But with all of the evidence that had been leaked in the last couple months about sammy's device, it just made no sense to believe what you were peddling.

    Now you have to seriously question your sources, and we have to be wary of your own posts based on whatever information you claim to have.

    My wife has an 822. She's on her second one. I will not be getting one unless / until they fix the SD card issues that phone has. Looks like I'll be going either Android or BB10.

    So much for inside sources... The goal posts just keep shifting on these rumors.

    My sources tell me that Nokia, Samsung, and HTC will be releasing a higher end phone for Verizon sometime in the future

    Here's a good link with the three spec'd side by side. It looks really disappointing. Just when I think Verizon is actually going to do something smart and good. I was waiting for a phone, but it was not this one. Specification for Verizon’s Samsung ATIV Odyssey leaked | LiveSide.net

    Edit: Found more info:

    I like the part where they say it's going to be lower than the 822, which is already free. So will they pay us to take this lemon?

    and of course: our own site: http://www.windowscentral.com/specs-...ming-mid-range

    Too bad waiting for this phone didn't pan out to being anything greater than what's already available on Verizon...actually seems to be the lesser of WinPhone devices on Verizon....oh well, I went with the 822 instead, should be here in a few days.

    They yanked the 822 free on contract two days ago. (to make room for the Odyssey free on contract, I am sure) But I also noticed that my new every two credit that had been with me through december just disappeared. I called the store, and they were not helpful. So I called Verizon Loyalty department. 877-628-8922. They were MUCH easier to deal with. They notated my account and told me that the Manager at the store should honor it. So I went to the store, saw a friend of mine. I got to look right at the notes on my account. He went to talk to the Mgr to get me my $50 off. No dice. Manager was not interested. Would rather have me order on line and waste my time. So I called verizon from the store, and ordered it there. 822 should be here tomorrow. In gray. (Which I guess is only available online) So I shall move over to those topics. The Wait for the ATIV Odyssey was a waste.. See you later.

    What really sucks is that this phone is $99 on contract.
