Why people are going mad over the pricing? These prices arent official and same goes with htc wp and lumia phones
It doesnt matter how it looks or anything, Samsung is doing this as a part of the licensing agreement with Microsoft for using Android (which is using microsoft patents). They pay less to microsoft for each android unit they make, and in return Samsung has a legal obligation to produce and promote WP devices. That explains why Samsung isnt trying very hard with their ATIV series, they are just fulfilling their contract with MS.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2012Why U people blaming MS for the pricing? i dont know!!!Because WP8 is not free like Android...
Samsung has to pay to license it on their phones.
Android fan boy, 29 Sep 2012Mr.anon let me inform u dumb bmw is not one of the company that is loosing market share. Andro... moreAndroid has saturated already and staying at top is much harder than reaching it...Look at Apple
Mr.anon let me inform u dumb bmw is not one of the company that is loosing market share. Android is the most growing OS till date.
I prefer to have fewer apps!
I don't see the point of having 500apps that do the same thing.. Android and Apple markets are loaded with thousands of apps that do roughly the same thing.
nice, 28 Sep 2012looks nice except that crappy OS without apps and horrible battery lifeWindows Phone had over 100.000 apps in early june, and it´s growing with about 300 a day.
For me thats enough.
AnonD-70078, 29 Sep 2012This phone is horrid. Lumia is much more attractive and better insideThat's how we like our women too.
[deleted post]interesting dutch there.

Cheers and well said. But English will be fine next time dude.Don't be shy. Let it out.
90% of phones are purchased on contract so the RRP is irrelevant. Where I live, the galaxy s3 costs $820 USD to purchase outright but I still see a lot of people walking around with them.
As for the android fanboys, think before flapping your gums; Nokia are making and selling BMW's whereas samsung and HTC are pushing out Hyundai's and KIA's.
Styling ,outclassed by Nokia for sure.
HTC's styling for their WP8 handsets are with the
whole WP8 feel and concept.
This Samsung lacks the impact of the Nokia & HTC
WPs. But Samsung is of course welcome to join the
Needs more of the visual impact that WP8
is trying to deliver, Samsung it seems missed there
in my view.
Maybe i'm too harsh.
But to me has a very generic iPhone / Galaxy series
look to it. I'm not judging the build quality, more first impressions.
I've owned LG,Sony,Nokia and Samsung.
Certainly like Sony to join the WP8 group.
Let Sony design a phone that makes you want to use it.
Nokia in my view got it perfect, a phone that wants to
be used. Visually inviting.
This is so bad .... Windows can never survive if it could release such way too overpriced devices ... WP will soon RIP if it goes this way
Crappy OS??? have you used it? I have iPhone, GS3 and a windows phone running 7.5 and windows phone is right up there in regards to speed, productivity and reliability... in fact its the only phone OS i haven't had crash on me yet!... i also use my phone for business not play so apps mean nothing to me.
if there's anything that other brands should sue samsung for its for making smartphones look so crap and cheap
