The Samsung Ativ S is now available to pre-order for those living in the United Kingdom, and it should be with you just in time for Christmas. Phones4U is now offering the handset on contracts with Vodafone, and it’s currently promising that it will ship on December 21.

The Ativ S is available for free on a £33 (approx. $52) per month plan, which includes 600 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500MB of data. If you’re happy to pay £29.99 (approx. $48) up-front for the handset, you can get unlimited minutes and 2GB of data for just £34 (approx. $54) per month.

Alternatively, you can get the Ativ S unlocked and SIM-free from British retailer Clove.co.uk for £442.80 (approx. $704). Clove’s website currently states that the handset will arrive during the “week commencing December 10th.” That’s almost two weeks earlier than Phones4U’s estimate — we’re still waiting for Samsung to confirm which of the two is most accurate.

While there’s no guarantee that you’ll get the Ativ S before Santa comes, there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t, either — providing that the release date stated by Phones4U doesn’t change.

Will you be pre-ordering the Ativ S?
