Verizon has not offered many Windows Phones in the past couple of years, but in recent months has expanded its lineup on that platform. Samsung's ATIV Odyssey will be the third device running Windows Phone 8, joining Nokia's Lumia 822 and HTC's 8X.

The device also features 4G LTE speeds as Verizon has been focusing heavily on driving LTE adoption within its subscriber base.
