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.

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.
