Verizon's Samsung ATIV Odyssey is finally here, bringing Samsung and Windows Phone 8 together in the United States.  Available on January 24th for $49.99, it's powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU and features a 4-inch Super AMOLED display (480x800 pixels), 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD recording, 2,100 mAh battery, and Windows Phone 8.  It's nice to see Samsung's Windows Phone land on Verizon, and at the price point, it'll be a strong competitor to the Nokia Lumia 822.  With Samsung, HTC, and Nokia on board, can Windows Phone hold down the third place spot in the mobile OS wars?
