I know it’s impolitic to say this out loud on the eve of an important Windows Phone 8 announcement but.. these Samsung ATIV phones make me ask – is Microsoft in bed with the wrong phone vendor?

I think Windows Phone 8 has potential but I have become a Samsung fan recently. They just seem very aggressive with their hardware.

Sleek, sexy, cutting edge seem to be what they are all about…

Maybe it’s just me?

    They are nice and if (which is most likely) Nokia does not have anything available here, I will get one. But I have to say that new red or yellow Lumia 920 is pretty slick looking. Hardware wise, I know where you are coming from, the Samsung looks like its Android brother which is a beast while the Lumia 920 looks a lot like the 900 which was adequate but not compelling. But I think under the hood, the 920 and the Ativ are likely both quite similar. We will know pretty soon.

      Well we know now that the 920 is the Beast and the Samsung Ativ, well it’s by far not to be compared with the 920. Samsing will have the same problem that it had with it’s previous WP’s. Nokia has acces to the core software and can customize it’s smartphones to the windows software, making a unique smartphone. If Samsung wants to compete with Nokia it must strike a deal with Microsoft, otherwise they will be left far behind when it comes to WP8.
