Samsung is bringing its budget Windows Phone 8 handset for Verizon, the Samsung Ativ Odyssey, tomorrow. The phone costs $50 after a $50 mail-in rebate and you have to sign a two-year contract, of course.

The Ativ Odyssey boasts 4G LTE connectivity, a 4” WVGA Super AMOLED screen, dual-core Krait processor clocked at 1.5GHz and a 5MP camera with 1080p video capture. It has 8GB of built-in storage expandable by microSD card and a 2,100mAh battery.

Verizon demoed the Ativ Odyssey at CES:

If you’re interested, the Odyssey will be available tomorrow at Verizon Wireless stores and online. This will be Verizon’s third WP8 smartphone, after the Nokia Lumia 822 and HTC 8X.
