Samsung Ativ Odyssey for Verizon Video Transcript
Hey, this is Jessica Dolcourt for CNET, here in CES 2013. I'm at Samsung's booth, I've got a Samsung ATIV Odyssey. This phone was just announced for Verizon, we did a look at it in the fall but this is the first time we're getting a hands-on. It's a Windows phone, running Windows phone 8 operating system. It is 4G LTE. Now this phone is smaller than what Samsung has been doing, it's only a 4-inch screen. It's got a Super AMOLED display. It's running off of a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, so it should be fairly fast but it's not quad-core. It has a 5 megapixel camera at the back with LED flash and it takes 1080p HD video, also 1080p HD video playback. There's a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front. There's a also the physical hardware buttons to take photos, I love that, that's on everyone else's phone. And there is a micro SD card slot that would take up to 64GB of offboard storage, there are only 8GB of onboard storage, so that's something you definitely want to expand if you're a person who likes your media. Verizon hasn't announced any pricing or availability yet but it should be coming soon. For CNET, I'm Jessica Dolcourt, you can catch all of our CES news at cnet.com.

This Windows 8 10-inch tablet comes wrapped in a Galaxy-like design, with a keyboard case.
The new Ativ Q convertible folds Android and Windows 8 into a tablet that's also a laptop. This you've gotta see.
Though no plans are in the works right now for Samsung to bring the dual-core Ativ S to the U.S., the phone offers a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Microsoft's newest WP8 mobile operating system, and an 8-megapixel camera.
Screen resolution on the high-end version of this Series 9 laptop will blow you away. We also inspect the Book 9 Plus' leaner little brother.
Samsung's budget-minded Ativ Book 9 Lite comes to the U.S. for $799.
The Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus Plus keeps the same sleek, attractive design as its predecessor but mixes in a glaringly high-resolution, touch-enabled display.

Samsung Ativ Odyssey Review
The good: The Samsung Ativ Odyssey is compact and affordable, and offers the clean Windows Phone 8 UI as well as 4G LTE.
The bad: The Samsung Ativ Odyssey’s small screen, blah design, and 5MP camera won’t knock your socks off.
The bottom line: The Samsung Ativ Odyssey provides an affordable but not thrilling Windows Phone 8 experience.
