South Korean company steals a march on Nokia, announcing their Windows phones just days before the Finnish firm.
The announcement of the Galaxy Note II was a given for IFA 2012, but the reveal of the Samsung Ativ S - its first smartphone to run Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 Phone system - was a surprise.
Featuring a 4.8in display, the Ativ S will be one of the bigger models on the market and contains an NFC chip.
Alongside the Windows smartphone, Samsung also unveiled the Samsung Ativ tablet running Windows 8 on a low-power ARM processor (aka Windows RT) and the Ativsmart PC and Ativsmart PC Pro, Windows 8 tablets with detachable keyboards similar to Asus's Transformer hybrids.
