Samsung ATIV S delayed – yet again

samsung-ativ-s-16gb

Sad news for you Windows Phone fans that have been waiting to pick up the Samsung ATIV S. It seems that the device has been delayed yet again according to our good friends at Expansys.

The word on the street is that the device will now be in stock (hopefully) on Thurs 13th December. Once again, Samsung for whatever reason, are missing out on the Windows Phone 8 battle. The Nokia and HTC handsets are already getting huge attraction from WP8 fans. It seems that Samsung really are missing out and I can’t for the life of me think why.

With the South Korean company being so huge these days I’m wondering how much they actually care about Windows Phone, what with their Android market share. Let’s hope this new date stays true or they may well be too late to the Windows Phone party.
