Samsung Omnia M Windows Phone launches

It might seem like it, but it isn't just Nokia that is producing Windows Phones right now. Samsung has a new one too, in the shape of the Omnia M.

Anyone hoping for a radical departure is likely to be disappointed. Perhaps the next level of Windows Phone design will appear when Windows 8 finally makes its debut. For now, you'll have to make do with something that's an evolution from the original Omnia 7.

Specifically, that means Windows Phome 7.5 Mango, a four-inch Super AMOLED display and a 1GHz processor for this 10.5mm thick/thin smartphone. There's also a five-megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash, a front-facing VGA for video calls, along with Wi-Fi and HSDPA connectivity. So not bad on the face of it, but certainly not groundbreaking.

It also comes with a selection of Samsung add-ons too, including Samsung’s ChatON service, support for Samsung's cloud-based Family Story sharing service and AllShare, which allows you to play any films, music and games downloaded on the Omnia M directly to a compatible TV. There's also 25GB of Windows Live SkyDrive storage thrown in too, which boosts the 4GB included with the phone.

The phone is coming to Europe first, so look out for it soon if you fancy trying Windows. No pricing or network details as yet.
