Entry level Samsung Omnia M available for pre-orders on Italian online retailer
It was just four days ago when Samsung introduced the Windows Phone powered Samsung Omnia M, its latest Omnia branded handset. This is purely a low to mid-range model with its single-core 1GHz processor (of course, until Apollo, dual-core and Windows don't mix). Other clues to where the Samsung Omnia M lies on the social ladder include its 384MB of RAM, the 5MP rear-facing shooter and the VGA front-facing camera. The 4 inch Super AMOLED display features resolution of 480 x 800 which is due to Windows Phone 7.5 regs. On board is 4GB of native storage. Obviously, this is far from being flagship material.

Italian online retailer ePrice has the Samsung Omnia M listed on its site and the interesting thing is that the device is being priced as though it were a higher-end model. At 249.99 EUR (about $380 USD), you can pre-order the Samsung Omnia M. On the other hand, as pointed out by WMPoweruser, you could buy the Nokia Lumia 710 (with its single-core 1.4GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of native storage) for 264.99 EUR, or you could get better value from the entry-level Nokia Lumia 610 for 195.99 EUR ($341 USD and $252 USD respectively).

Where not sure exactly where else on this big rock the Samsung Omnia M will end up after its launch in Europe. Samsung says it will be heading to other regions which covers just about anywhere.

where are those fandroids who keeps on bashing Nokia Lumia 900 for having a low spec hardwares compared to android phones. Now, compare nokia lumia, any version of lumia with this phone. Don't compare hardwares if they don't have the same OS.
