We were all excited for the Focus S, right? Well guess who’s not excited: Samsung and AT&T. See fit hey were you’d actually hear about the release and have fancy things like specifications and a website that says ‘coming soon’ but no. Little to nothing. AT&T’s site simply has a link to the Windows Phone Blog talking about the Focus S and Focus Flash. And the only confirmation of a release date from AT&T is from a Facebook posting. And Samsung now lists the Focus Flash as being available on November 6. What’s the storage capacity? Not listed. Let’s ask them:
It felt like Siri was responding to me…
November 6 is a big launch day for AT&T. They have the HTC Vivid, Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, BlackBerry Bold 9900, Curve 9360 and Torch 9860. And two Windows Phones that no one knows about. Just another Windows Phone launch fail. Really hard to sell products that no one knows exist.
Nope, things will not be changing this time around…
UPDATE: I just tried AT&T Live Chat:
Yeah they steered me to Android. How did we end things?
David: ok guess I’ll just have to wait…just seems like a strange way to release a new phone unless you guys are either delaying it or not looking to market it heavily
Sean: That is correct, I agree.
