Samsung Omnia W launched in the UK
Samsung’s first Windows Phone Mango device – the Omnia W – has been released in the UK, where it’s now available unlocked via Play.com.
The British retailer is asking £339.99 (about €398 or $540) for the new Omnia Mango handset – free delivery included.
BuyMobilePhones.net also has the Omnia W, but only on pre-order, and not unlocked, but on various pay monthly tariffs from O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone.
The Samsung Omnia W is not a high-end smartphone, and is competing with the likes of HTC’s Radar, and Acer’s Allegro. It features a 3.7 inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording, VGA front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 1GHz single-core processor, and 8GB of internal memory.
A rebranded version of the Omnia W, namely the Samsung Focus Flash, is being sold in the US by AT&T since last week (for $49 on contract).
