Samsung Omnia W

The latest Windows Phone offering from Samsung has just been announced. The Samsung Omnia W is the latest in a growing list of Mango devices which will ship with Windows Phone 7.5.

The Omnia W will feature a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, down from the 4.0” on the Omnia 7 which was widely regarded as one of the best WP7 displays. The Omnia W will have an upgraded 1.4GHz single-core processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing and VGA front-facing camera.

It is surprising just how similar the phone’s specs are to its predecessor, especially considering we’re more than a year on from the Omnia 7’s release. The Samsung Omnia W will start shipping at the end of October to some countries, which looks to miss the Mango launch.

Telstra have also confirmed Mango will begin rolling out to Windows Phones in the next two weeks, adding to Optus and Vodafone who are also ready to roll.
