AT&T to start selling Samsung ATIV S Neo Nov. 8th

AT&T will expand its already large number of Windows Phone 8 devices yet again very soon. Today, the wireless carrier announced it will add the Samsung ATIV S Neo device to its library of smartphones on November 8th.

The device, which first appeared for sale in the US via Sprint in August, will be the first Windows Phone 8 smartphone from Samsung that AT&T will have for its subscribers, after previously selling various devices from Nokia and HTC. The AT&T version of the ATIV S Neo will connect to the company's 4G LTE network. It will have the following features:

  • 4.77 inch display
  • 1.4 GHz dual-core processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.9 megapixel front camera.
  • 16GB of storage
  • microSD slot
  • 5GB of free online cloud storage through AT&T Locker
  • ATIV Beam for transferring files between compatible phones

The price for the phone will be $99.99 with a new two year contract. AT&T will also be the first U.S. carrier to sell the upcoming Nokia Lumia 1520 6 inch smartphone, along with the Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet. A specific release date for both products has yet to be announced.

Great, they release crap phones late and butcher awesome phones like the Nokia 1520. AMOLED instead of the LCD IPS Display, 16gig instead of 32 gig, and they removed built in wireless charging for a f'ing cover so they can make more money on accessories. Screw AT&T!!

This is probably the worse WP8 device ever. Are they even trying or just releasing crap phones for the sake of reporting that their android sales are better than WP?

What's wrong with it?

The price seems a little silly but other than that it should be perfectly acceptable.

Yeah, the 1520 is nice but it's going to be $200 more than this one. The ATIV S is a year old now but when it launched it was the best WP available. Now it's a decent device for $100 and nowhere near the worse WP8 ever.

Indeed...but this isn't a new phone. In any event it's perfectly well spec'ed...just the price seems odd.

slimmer and better looking than the 920. Same hardware except the super-camera on the Lumia

Smaller screen with a body the same size and the 920 already has a screen too small for its body. Only 16GB internal storage and no SD slot (920 has 32GB). No reason to buy the 8X over the 920 other than price.
