The just-released Samsung Omnia 7 otherwise known as the i8700 can be purchased on T-mobile via an approved reseller for as little as £25 per month, much less than the £35 that T-Mobile is charging direct.
Available from Buymobilephones, the offer includes 600 minutes, 500 texts and 1GB data quota and lasts 24 months; there's a beefier offer which offers 50 per cent more minutes while costing £5 extra with a £75 automatic cash back as well.
For those looking for the smallest TCO, there's an 18-month contract that comes with the same amount of minutes and texts and costs £515 (a price that includes the phone itself) once the automatic cash back has been accounted for.
The Samsung Omnia 7 has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 800x480 pixels, a 1GHz Qualdcomm QSD8250 processor, a 5-megapixel camera with HD recording capabilities and Windows Phone 7 OS.
The Omnia 7 is the first of a series of Windows Phone 7 devices that will hit the market shortly; these will include the HTC 7 Mozart, the HTC 7 Trophy, the HTC HD7 and the LG Optimus 7.
