T-Mobile Windows Phone 8 LTE possibly Samsung Odyssey
Back at the end of last month we posted on a couple of new Windows Phone 8 smartphones, the Samsung Marco and the Samsung Odyssey, which was mentioned in a roadmap filed during the legal fight with Apple, and although we were treated to a few details on the handsets, it wasn’t too clear which carrier might gain either or the devices. However it appears there has been a little light shed on that matter when it comes to the Samsung Odyssey.
A report over on Tmonews offers that insight by way of a user agent string, which shows that the smartphone supports IE 10, which means the handset is running the latest Microsoft operating system, Windows Phone 8, and the guys believe the device is the aforementioned Samsung Odyssey, and will be T-Mobile’s first Windows Phone 8 device.
Furthermore, inside the radio bit of the document is a listing for LTE, which should mean that the Samsung Odyssey should be able to play nice on T-Mobile’s upcoming 4G LTE network.
As stated above, expected details on the Samsung Odyssey handset were revealed previously, showing the Windows Phone 8 device will sport a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD touch screen along with HSPA+ 21Mbps and LTE, an 8 megapixel 1080p rear facing camera, a 2 megapixel 720p front facing snapper, apparently a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and 1GB of RAM.
Thus it would appear that T-Mobile won’t be getting the short end of the Windows Phone 8 stick this time round, as the Odyssey is a better device than other Windows Phone 8 handset, the Samsung Marco, which is also an LTE enabled handset but with a 4-inch Super AMOLED WVGA touch screen that word has it is destined for AT&T.
So there you have it, it would appear that the Samsung Odyssey will be T-Mobile’s first Windows Phone 8 LTE handset, but just when potential customers are likely to see the device hit T-mobile still remains a mystery.
