Samsung ATIV S

Samsung ATIV S heading to Canada?

We've just broke word that Microsoft has indeed released Windows Phone 8 to manufacturers (RTM) for testing and further development, which means we're not too far off from a platform launch. Nokia has revealed its lineup with the Lumia 820 and 920, and Samsung announced the ATIV S. We've got the HTC event just around the corner, but which Windows Phones will be heading to Canadian carrier Bell?

According to a tip received over at MobileSyrup, Bell has been quite forward with its Windows Phone 8 plans. An email conversation was shared between a reader and the Assistant to the President of Bell Mobility, who stated the company has no immediate plans to stock the Lumia 920, but will be releasing a number of unnamed handsets.

It's noted that Bell will support the platform in Canada by releasing two Windows Phones. This could mean the carrier will be snatching the Samsung ATIV S, the Nokia 820 and / or possibly a HTC Windows Phone. Only time will tell. Good news is Bell is looking forward to platform launch.
