Verizon’s ATIV Odyssey from Samsung now available to take your $49.

Verizon has tossed up the official ATIV Odyssey page for those who would like to purchase online (and presumably in stores too). In addition, the large CDMA carrier has a neat Flash intro to the device, highlighting three main features including the 4” Super AMOLED display/Gorilla Glass 2, its long-lasting battery (2100mAh) and NFC tap-to-share.

The device sells for $49 after a two-year commitment to Verizon or $450 without a contract. Aimed at entry level users who just want a fun, no frills smartphone featuring Windows Phone 8, the ATIV Odyssey is actually quite a nice little device.

Windows Phone Central had some hands on time with the Odyssey and felt it was combo of the Focus 2 design with some ATIV S flare added, making it quite nimble in the hand. While the device won’t appeal to those looking for a highend ‘flagship’ phone, we like the ATIV Odyssey for what it is and think those of a more conservative stripe (not in the political sense, folks, calms down) will appreciate it’s more traditional look.

We’ll have a few review of the ATIV Odyssey coming within the next week. Stay tuned.

Lamesauce. I mean I kinda want a 920 but I don't always have the best connection so a 32gb phone with a 64gb sdhc, makes me happy I have a lot of music to load, also I love samsungs screens, but I like nokias camera, and the bulletproofness of the lumia 920

The question I have is this: is it running the Portico update? All the rest of us on Verizon are waiting (im)patiently for Verizon to get in the game here.

Much better screen (Super AMOLED), dual core CPU, more RAM, expandable storage, NFC, Windows Phone 8 OS with Portico, LTE and better camera.

Pretty freakin' far from being the same as the Trophy ;)

Whoever is in charge of Verizon marketing is seriously lacking.  They couldn't have taken more boring promo pics if they tried.
