Samsung have been successful lately with their Android phones and tablets like the Galaxy S and it should come as no surprise when it is revealed that they would be launching their first phone, running on the new Windows Phone 7 operating system. It is called the Samsung Omnia 7.
But the biggest surprise has to come when you come to know about the screen size. The Samsung Omnia 7 has a 4 inch touch screen display and it is a beauty, just to look at or watch movies in it. The touch screen is capacitive, which is an added bonus, as you can do multi-touch functions in the screen. The touch screen also employs super AMOLED technology and hence the colours and contrast are always top notch, irrespective of the ambient brightness conditions.
The only blemish in the otherwise top featured quality hardware would be the 5 megapixel camera, which even though is the same as the other Windows phones, could have been upgraded to an 8 megapixel or even a 12 megapixel one, like the new Nokia N8. Nonetheless, this is still a brilliant camera and does the job excellently. There is the added bonus feature too, the ability to capture HD videos.
The phone runs on a powerful 1GHz Qualcomm processor and this makes the applications and all other functions run super smooth, without any lag at all. The Windows Phone 7 interface, as a result, appears much cooler than it would on other Windows Phones.
The Samsung Omnia 7 will be available in the UK from this week onwards and a few major network providers like T-Mobile have already announced their pricings. T-Mobile is offering the Samsung Omnia 7 for as low as £35 per month on a two year contract.
