After being available with online stores for over a week, Samsung has finally launched the Windows Phone 7.5 based OMNIA in India. Although Samsung has officially priced this phone at Rs 18,700, majority of online stores have been selling it at a price of Rs 16,000.
This smartphone has a 4 inch Super-AMOLED capacitive touch screen that offers a pixel resolution of 480x800. The 5 mega pixel camera with Auto focus and LED flash is pretty good and video recording @ 30 fps decent. The fact that this smartphone comes with a 1 GHz CPU and 384 MB RAM will dissuade many potential smartphone buyers.
The 1500 mAh battery when fully juiced is good for talk time of 12 hours-2G and 6 hours- 3G. OMNIA Windows 7.5 supports a number of audio and video formats and comes preloaded with apps such as Photo Studio, Family Story, RSS Times, and Ch@tON Messaging Service. Considering there are smartphones with better features at a lesser price we would expect Samsung to lower the price of this handset in the days to come.
