Samsung Ativ Odyssey entry-level Windows Phone coming to Verizon in the 'coming weeks'

via p.aaron.fm

After originally being announced in October last year, Samsung's Ativ Odyssey will finally arrive on Verizon in "the coming weeks." The Windows Phone 8 device has a 4-inch 800 x 480 Super AMOLED display, a five-megapixel rear camera that's capable of shooting 1080p video, and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera. It's powered by the Windows Phone standard 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and has a 2,100mAh battery.

If the design looks a little familiar to you, that'll be because we saw a leak that, it turns out, was spot on back in November. With a WVGA display, it's undoubtably an entry-level Windows Phone, so pricing will be all-important. Unfortunately neither Samsung nor Verizon has revealed how much the Ativ Odyssey will cost. We'll update you as soon as an official announcement is made.
