Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Review Everything about the Omnia Pro shouts professional quality, from its OLED screen to its solid build and imperious weight.

Samsung Omnia Pro GT-B7610

The Pro's four-line, 39-key keyboard is expansively laid out within its sizeable frame - a good deal chunkier than the standard Omnia flagship, incidentally - and though the keys looks disconcertingly flat, there's actually a gentle rise in the middle of each which makes them easy to differentiate under the thumbs.

The large, 3.5in screen dominates the front and is as bright and sharp while going relatively easy on your battery as you could wish for. It's a shame that it's resistive rather than capacitive but it's one of the more sensitive ones we've used, and it proved to be excellent for viewing videos.

The Omnia Pro runs Windows Mobile 6.5 with its sizeable, thumb-friendly icons meaning you're unlikely to need to resort to the supplied stylus. There's a choice of modes: "Work" or "Life", and it also has Samsung's TouchWiz interface with its own widgets, some of which are better than others – the Facebook one for instance turns out to be just a link to the website which doesn't offer homepage updates.

The 5Mp camera includes autofocus and dual LED flash, and delivers better snaps than most, too. There's 8GB of memory on board though you can add up to 32GB more with Micro SD cards. ®
