Original Samsung Omnia was quite a big hit for the Korean company in some countries.
But now with Omnia II, Omnia Pro and other new phones on the way to the shops , it is becoming a bit dated and will probably be dropped from the inventories around the world.
But it still is quite a good Windows Mobile 6.1 full touch smartphone, with 5 megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi and what not. And, as with most of the products nearing the end of their sales cycle, you may soon find some pretty slick deals for Samsung Omnia phone, as Samsung tries to get rid of the unsold inventories, before better replacements arrive.
Actually, the process has already started in Russia, where retailer Euroset has announced that they are lowering unsubsidized Samsung WiTu (that’s Omnia’s Russian trade name) prices to 12 990 Rubles, which translates into something like 286 Euro.
I’m not sure whether Samsung has stocked many Omnia’s elsewhere, but if they have, start looking for some pretty good deals on Samsung Omnia in your country too. And, with mobile phone prices in Russia traditionally being about 20-30% above of what similar models sell in the rest of Europe, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ll be able to find Omnia I for not much more then 200 Euro unsubsidized, soon.
