Samsung ATIV S price drops in Russia, sluggish sales the cause?
The ATIV S has had its priced slashed in Russia, according to a report over at WindowsPhoneLive.ru. It's believed the change is down to the Samsung Windows Phone selling rather poorly, which has led to both Svyaznoy and Euroset dropping the Windows Phone by 5,000 rubles ($160). Should you be looking at the ATIV S, now would be a good time to begin checking it out for a good deal.
What's interesting to note is how the Lumia 920 has remained on its original price point, leading to assumptions to be made about lack of sales for the ATIV S. We'll have our ATIV S review up soon (we understand it's slightly on the late side, sorry folks), but initial thoughts include Samsung isn't effectively marketing the ATIV S well enough for the Windows Phone to battle against Nokia's flagship smartphone.
