Sweet news for Verizon Wireless subscribers: Starting today, you have more great and affordable Windows Phones to choose from.
As promised, the Samsung ATIV Odyssey made its much-awaited debut. Buy it here. The third Windows Phone 8 model in the company’s 4G LTE lineup runs $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and new two-year contact. It features a 4-inch 800×480 Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel rear camera with full 1080p recording and playback capability, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and 2100mAh battery.
Here’s a video of some folks at Verizon taking it for a spin at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month.
In the fun surprise category, the company today also started selling a flashy red Nokia Lumia 822. (It is almost Valentine’s Day after all.) The Lumia 822 first went on sale last fall in white, black, and grey. The new red color is available online or from any Verizon Wireless retail store. Best of all? The Lumia 822 with Windows Phone 8 is now FREE with a two-year contract.
