Whenever you want to purchase a new device, it is always best to test it out at the store first, before handing over your hard earned money. After all, there is a tiny risk where you could end up with a dud, as with Monica Hall. She dropped by an AT&T Store in Mesquite, Texas on November 15th, picking up an iPad Air there before returning home only to discover that the iPad Air was a demo model, after realizing that the tablet could not load apps or lock. She had to spend a considerable amount of time with Apple Support to get things working, but that was not the end of her woes just yet.
The iPad Air also contained more than 300 Apple employee contacts, and this proved to be a large problem as all of those contacts would end up on her iPhone whenever she synced her iTunes account. As iOS 7 is incompatible with her company’s email system, it is not as simple as wiping and restoring the handset. In a nutshell, she has to manually delete those names one by one each time!
When it comes to Windows Phone smartphones, one name would obviously come into mind, and that would be Nokia – a company that has more or less been absorbed by the folks over at Microsoft earlier this year. Are there any other players out there when it comes to Windows Phone ? Not really, but Samsung has had a few forays into this niche market before in the form of the Samsung ATIV S, the ATIV Odyssey and the ATIV Neo S. According to Zauba, which has been touted to be “home to India’s import and export data”, the Samsung SM-W750V has been listed recently.
Unfortunately, what seems to be a future flagship Windows Phone 8 model from Samsung has not revealed anything more in the listing other than the fact that it will most probably be released to the masses sometime next year. I guess that would be when we will be able to find out more about the handset, as things would most probably remain quiet from now until then.
