There were two big Windows Phone-related announcements today at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

First, Samsung said that the ATIV Odyssey will go on sale at Verizon Wireless in the “coming weeks.” Samsung makes some amazing hardware and this is its first Windows Phone 8 device in the US, so we’re all pretty excited about the ATIV Odyssey’s debut.

The other exciting news today comes from Sprint, which hinted last fall that it would be debuting a Windows Phone 8 device sometime in 2013. Today the company filled in a bit more detail, saying it actually planned to launch two Windows Phones on its network by summer—one each from Samsung and HTC.
