Samsung sheds light on low-cost WinPho blower
Tile be back
Samsung announced its latest offering based on the Windows Phone platform today, the Omnia M, a low-end alternative for those who want Microsoft's tile UI, but don't fancy one of Nokia's budget Lumia.
Still, there is a generously-sized 4in OLED display, a 5Mp rear-facing camera and a 0.3Mp webcam so users can jump on the company's ChatOn communication service.
There's 4GB of internal storage, with the firm touting additional space through Microsoft's SkyDrive sync'n'store service, which offers 25GB of free cloud capacity.
Other multimedia features include the Samsung AllShare for flinging content to a telly, a Photo Studio for image editing and the Music Hub, which will create playlists to suit your mood. How exhilarating.
The Samsung Omnia M hits Europe sometime soon although exact pricing and availability have yet to be revealed. ®
Re: A useful way to show how great the S3 really is
An S3 costs 2-3x as much as this phone will cost. If you want to make a fair comparison pick an Android phone with an equivalent price tag.
Re: I hope it's cheap (at least)
"I expect it will be cheap, as that's the whole point of WPTango!"
You can buy Android phones on PAYG with 512MB of RAM for £100. It makes no sense to me that Tango cuts the amount of RAM in half and imposes so many limitations in doing so.
Re: 5 months and obsolete
Because it will instantly stop working as soon as WP8 comes out.
If people didn't buy phones because a new better phone is coming out during the contract period, people would never buy phones
