Sprint’s second Windows Phone 8, the Samsung ATIV S Neo, will be available for purchase this Friday, August 16th for $149.99 on contract and after a $50 mail-in-rebate.
It’s hardly a ground breaking device, or one that warrants much attention, but if you’re looking for a Windows Phone on the Now Network you need not look any further. That said, this is the FIRST Windows Phone 8 device to offer international roaming from the carrier, so if you’re traveling abroad you’ll likely opt for this one over the HTC 8XT, which we just got our hands on.
Other features include a 4.8-inch 1280×720 display, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 16GB memory, 1GB of RAM, microSD memory card slot with support up to 64GB, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, Kids Corner with parental lockout controls, 3G/4G hotspot functionality, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, WiFi b/g/n, and a removable 2,000mAh lithium-ion battery for up to 14 hours talk time.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
