It ‘was the first Windows Phone 8 device officially break cover, but in a strange twist of circumstance, turned out to be (presumably) the latest release of Windows Phone in 2012. Coming in behind the HTC Windows Phones and Nokia Lumia family, we recently asked if the S ATIV was still worth the wait. This is a question that will not be able to respond fully to the completion of our review process, but this is a procedure that can start right now. This is because, thanks to the fine folks at Samsung, a S ATIV just showed up at our door.
