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.

Used Launcher 7 for a month. Was too buggy and immediately felt disconnected from the rest of the phone when doing anything other than interacting directly with the 'launcher 7' screen, IMO. Also, I think the tiles in Win 8 / WP8 do rotate but I could be wrong.

They do not rotate in WP7 on the home screen. Portrait only, like a stock iPhone as well.
