Samsung Omnia W hits UK shelves, retails for nearly $540
The Samsung Omnia W is the successor to the original Samsung Omnia 7 Windows Phone, and it comes with a refined design and a taste of Mango, the latest update to the platform. Good news is that the Omnia W, announced a month or so ago, has now quietly hit shelves at UK retailer Play.com

The Samsung Omnia W price is nearly $540 (£339.99) with no carrier ties, but you can also get it with a subsidy slashing the price down to free if you get tied to an O2 contract, something that would cost you some $25 (£15.68) a month for 100 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB.

The Omnia W has a 3.7-inch display with a WVGA resolution (480x800 pixels). It features a 1.4GHz single-core processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera capturing 720p videos and a VGA front snapper. Nothing all that stellar, but you can expect a rock solid Windows Phone experience, something Microsoft has successfully ensured by enforcing strict hardware rules for phones on the platform. You can purchase the Omnia W now at Play.com here. We’re yet to hear news about availability and pricing stateside, but you’d be the first to know when we do.

Overpriced, like all smartphones when they're just released but I still like it. Also, when can we expect the review?
