ATIV S could be unveiled at IFA 2012

Samsung may still be in shock over its $1.05B loss to Apple in a U.S. court, but that isn't stopping the company with moving forward with fresh new products. Microsoft's Windows Phone mobile operating system has been treading water in the smartphone space for well over a year, but Samsung is hoping to liven things up with a sleek, fresh entry to the fray.
 
The Samsung ATIV S features an 8.7mm brushed aluminum chassis and will come packing a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and an 8MP rear camera. For those that actually bother using the front-facing camera, that unit dials in at 1.9MP.

There will be both 16GB and 32GB models made available to the public, and a microSD slot will also be included if you choose to expand storage on your own. A generous 2300mAh battery is included to ensure that you have enough juice to last through the day.
 
You can check out more pictures and thoughts on the Samsung ATIV S on the Windows Phone Blog.

The launch date for Windows Phone 8 will likely be announced next week.

I KNOW RIGHT? I ALMOST CONFUSED IT WITH AN IPHONE UNTIL I LOOKED FOR MORE THAN 27 MILLISECONDS AND SAW "SAMSUNG" RIGHT AT THE TOP CENTER OF THE FACE!

You better check with your monitor display or even your TV set, its rectangle with curved corners too. So Apple may SUE you as well.

Yeah, I think Apple is on a roll. I think they're currently trying to take down stone henge, and they are also suing MGM over the use of rectangles in 2001 & 2010. Cease and desist letters have been sent to Lego, their affiliated theme parks and Duplo as well. Lastly they are lobbying teachers unions to make sure kindergardners are only drawing rectangles with sharp edges. If there lobbying efforts pan out, you will no longer be able to buy finished wood planks or panels as there rounded corners may create confusion. Oh, and if you only take one bite of your apple, and an Apple security guard sees it, they may confiscate it since those will be contraband as well.

They'd also have to sue MGM for making 2001 showing the Astronauts using... *gasp* tablets to watch TV while eating dinner.
