After a long string of annoying delays, contradictory rumors and downright b.s. speculations, Samsung’s ATIV S has finally landed in Austria and Sweden. But we know that when Sammy gets the ball rolling it’s pretty hard to stop it, so the UK is today joining the list of countries getting the Windows Phone 8 running 4.8-incher.
For now, only Clove has the phone up for grabs and even the retailer clearly states that the first stock is due tomorrow, December 14. However, we’re expecting a number of other sellers to follow Clove’s suite and have the ATIV S available by Monday.
As suspected, the WP8 smartphone is anything but cheap, going for £442.80 including VAT in its SIM-free variation. Then again, the ATIV S has a pretty special spec sheet, which includes a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 1 GB of RAM and an 8 MP camera.
Clove UK has another Windows-based device listed as coming tomorrow, this time an RT tablet. The Samsung ATIV Tab has a 10.1-inch HD LCD display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 32 GB of internal storage and goes for £538.80 including VAT.
