Samsung announced its latest Windows Phone handset on Monday.
The Samsung Omnia W will be available at the end of October, with initial shipments starting in Italy. The Omnia W runs Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” software and packs a 3.7″ display with a 1.4GHz processor. The device also includes a forward facing camera that will support new video calling applications to be made available for Windows Phone 7.5 over the coming months.
The Omnia W appears to be the European equivalent to the recently announced Samsung Focus Flash. AT&T will stock the Focus Flash in the U.S. which is designed to target a lower price point market. Samsung is also releasing a Samsung Focus S in the U.S. which includes a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.4GHz processor, 4G network support and a 1.3MP front facing camera. The rear of the device is equipped with an 8MP camera. Samsung has not yet announced an Omnia equivalent for European markets.
