Announced the mediocre Mango-running smartphone made by Samsung.
This is the Windows Phone Mango month, with several new releases and updates being pushed to existing smartphones, and also Samsung followed the crowd unveiling its new smartphone running the latest release of Microsoft OS, which is probably going to be the last one according to someone within the company. In fact the Samsung Omnia W itself is not really exciting, and places itself in the mid-range of Windows Phones especially when compared with the powerful HTC Titan.
The new Windows Phone, which will be available at the end of October, sports a single-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of ROM, a 5Mpx camera and a VGA front-camera. The display is just a 3.7-inch with WVGA resolution and the battery has a capacity of 1500mAh.
Considering that the old Omnia 7 can be bought for less than €250 and has basically the same specifications, who wants to spend at least €400 for this new toy? We definitely expected more from Samsung, but the message we get from this announce is a lost interest in the Microsoft platform. What do you think?
