Quick! Sell your old phone today and get set for the new Samsung Omnia M. Samsung has finally pulled the curtain of a new Windows Phone handset, which will take on the likes of the ZTE Tania and the HTC Radar in the battle for our cash.
The phone comes running the much-heralded Windows Phone 7.5, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 like the majority of other Windows Phone handsets on the market, a Super AMOLED 4in screen with a 800 x 480 pixels resolution, Wi-Fi, a 1500mAh battery, microUSB, BT, GPS, a five megapixel camera with flash and a front facing VGA camera. Unfortunately, this impressive spec is let down by the storage capacity available: only 384MB RAM and 4GB of storage.
To sweeten the deal, howver, Samsung has thrown in a few goodies; like its own family network known as Family Story as well as ChatON, its communication service which acts like a video-audio-text instant messaging platform. There is also AllShare, MusicHub, Smart DJ and Windows SkyDrive to play around with.
It’s probably a good job that Windows SkyBrive is included; considering the storage issues. A recent press release says that users will get 25GB, although everyone is suspecting that it will be 7GB as this is the standard quota free Skydrive users usually get.
The Samsung Omnia M will have a very tough time against the HTC Radar or the Nokia Lumia 710 which are both superior smartphones with more on-board memory and more storage capacity.
Other Samsung models in a similar performance bracket include the Samsung Omnia 7 and Omnia W.
