Check this out for some more info about the coming devices, http://redboard.rogers.com/tag/ativ-s-smartphone/
I would suggest following @RogersBuzz on Twitter for the latest updates regarding release information.
A few MAJOR questions are outstanding:
>> At this moment, Rogers has not released any info on when the Ativ Smart PC will be available for reservation or pre orders. Its still on COMING SOON status.
Actually it's ON the reservation system, you can reserve apparently, but there's no way to determine what you are reserving or what price.
I am most interested to know if this model will have the S-pen. The pictures on the Rogers red boards show the keyboard. It appears it will be a full Windows 8 pc with LTE connectivity which is a big seller for me, but I really want an S-Pen compatible model, even it the pen were to be sold separately. Samsung makes about 10 sub-varieties of the ATIV PC line so it's hard to know if what Rogers has chosen will be what I want.
I currently have a Microsoft Surface at home, still in box unopened and if I could get these answers I may just return it, but it has to go back tomorrow if I want to do that, so time is of the essence!!
Surely someone at Rogers must know this after a month since the announcement! Most annoying that I can't get these simple questions answered, even if they're not available for a while.
>> The mods on here get little to no info on what is going on. Blame the head office and back end team for this. All the questions you had, i answered them to you. If you want morw info, contact Samsung.<<
I tried calling them, they don't know either but I got another number to try. I appreciate your help but unfortunately it's not quite enough. I realize it's up to Rogers, I was just hoping someone would know!
If I reserve it I was told I can decline it if it isn't the one I want, but I'm not sure I trust Rogers to honour that commitment.
As for the reservation system, I already looked there it just states
Windows 8 ATIV smart PC
This would cover about 10 sub-models of what Samsung offers by that brand name.
People have replied on AT&T's site that their model do not come with the S-Pen, therefore I don't think the Rogers model will have it either.
