Samsung Omnia M is announced, coming to Europe soon
Well, it turns out the Samsung Focus 2 was not the only Windows Phone device that the company had in stock for us this week. Introducing the Samsung Omnia M – a new Windows Phone handset aimed at customers that prioritize social connectivity and entertainment features.

After a quick look at its specs sheet it becomes evident that the Samsung Omnia M is but a mid-range smartphone. To start, it has a 1GHz single core processor backed up by 384MB of RAM. The device's Super AMOLED display with "reduced glare" measures 4 inches in diagonal and has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels, which is standard for Windows Phone 7.5 devices.

On its back resides a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing shooter enables video chats. Other features include 4GB of built-in storage, 1,500mAh battery, 7.2Mbps 3G HSPA radio, Wi-Fi and GPS. All of these goodies are contained within a 119 gram body that is only 10.5 millimeters thick.

When it comes to software, Samsung has thrown in a few tricks of its own in there. Most notably, we see that the ChatON service is present allowing multi-platform IM-ing, along with Family Network, which is a cloud-based service from Samsung meant to facilitate communication between family members. Samsung AllShare for wireless media streaming is present as well.

The Samsung Omnia M will be released in Europe first, after which a rollout in other regions will follow. Pricing and exact availability dates have yet to be disclosed.

Wow.. For Omnia Samsung choose to go with an iPhone like design instead of the galaxy s3 that's designed by lawyers.
I call this BS.

Motorola files patent application for anti-smear display tech. Motorola should transfer that patent to Samsung because Motorola used Samsung display SAMOLED in their phones.

enough with the design copying thing. There is no iphone like design. Cause ''IF'' includes every mobile with a touch screen. WHAT! you don't want a phone which is rectangle in shape so maybe you want a phone which is kite like or in a triangle shape.Hey have you ever seen a T.V in a kite-like shape no(well duh no one's gonna buy it).

384MB RAM
1gHz Single-core CPU
5.0MP Camera
"reduced glare" screen
4GB of storage...

...all for a "social" and "media" phone running on wp7.5 mango

What can your ugly droid run on these specs? lol
lagging here and there, OutOfMemoryException, or worst cast can't run it at all due to fragmentation.

This sound like Windows Phone Tango. Not bad.
- 384MB instead of 256MB RAM
- 1Ghz instead of 800Mhz Processor
This is a very decent offer.

It's almost like the omnia W except with less memory and lesser specs... why???

Samsung is just spitting out random phones hoping more people will buy them...
