WinPhonelive.ru reports that the Samsung ATIV S has had a $100 price cut, from around $820 to $720 or 21,990 rubles.
While Windows Phone has been very well in Russia recently, it has been mainly in the low-end value range of handsets, and of course Samsung does not put quite as much weight behind their phones as Nokia does.
The Samsung ATIV S was the first Windows Phone 8 handset to be announced, but was the last to ship, with an eventual staggered roll-out which lacked the excitement of the Nokia Lumia 920. One wonders of Samsung will be trying again in the future with a better effort or not.
What do our ATIV S owning readers think of the handset? Let us know below.
