Samsung ATIV S to be priced dropped before launch to $79.95 on 3-year?

The Samsung ATIV S will be available in Canada in a couple weeks via Rogers, Bell, TELUS and Sasktel. There’s various 3-year contract pricing floating around that range from $129.99 to $149.99. However, this Windows Phone 8 device is a bit late to market and we just might see a price drop to bring in last minute holiday sales. According to this Bell flyer that has been sent out it shows a slashed price of $50 from $129.95 to $79.95 – could very well be for current customers to upgrade. However, it’s not surprising as the competing WP8 devices (Lumia 920 and HTC 8X) have already been price dropped. Finally, the no-term price will be $599.95.
