It looks like Samsung’s latest Windows Phone called the Omnia W has been spotted in the wild. The Omnia W was announced without a launch date in September, but it’ll feature Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 7.5, code-named Mango. The phone will sport some pretty noteworthy features including:
- 1.4 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU
- Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dualband UMTS/HSDPA (14.4 Mbps)/HSUPA (5.76 Mbps) at 900/2100 MHz
- Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
- 3.7-inch Super AMOLED WVGA touchscreen
- 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash
- Front-facing VGA camera
- 512 MB RAM and 8 GB internal flash memory
- Samsung AllShare for DLNA home media sharing over Wi-Fi
Others Windows Phone goodies include the Picture Hub, Music and Video Hub as well as the Game Hub. If you love music then you should know that Music Hub is powered by the Zune, which means you can sign up for the Zune Pass and have on-the-go access to just about any track you want to play.
Little by little, Microsoft and partners are trickling out devices just in time for the holidays, but it’s yet to be seen if people will shell out the cash for a Windows Phone 7.5 device over an iPhone 4S or any of the latest Android offerings. Would you buy a Mango-powered phone over the iPhone or any Android device?
