Samsung Unveils Omnia M Windows Phone Handset

Samsung has finally unveiled a new Windows Phone handset, one which will take on the likes of the ZTE Tania and the HTC Radar. Meet the GT-I8350 otherwise known as the Omnia M which will be available in Europe.

The phone comes with 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, only 384MB RAM and 4GB onboard storage.

Samsung has also 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, AllShare, MusicHub, Smart DJ and Windows SkyDrive.

The press release says that users will get 25GB although suspect 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.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
