Samsung Omnia 7: Hands-On, Impressions, Photos & Specs

By Updated on

We continue our coverage for all Windows Phone 7 devices unveiled today, and now focus on what seems to be one of the picks of the bunch — the Samsung Omnia 7, formally the i8700.

First appearing from the wild at the beginning of September, the Omnia 7 looks very impressive and is the only Super AMOLED device in Microsoft’s launch of 9 other phones.

Although Engadget say that there is no “distinct advantage” when comparing to other Windows Phone 7 devices, it certainly does put its own stamp on the brand.

Samsung’s Omnia 7 is set to launch on Orange, SFR, Movistar and T-Mobile in Europe and comes equipped with a lightning-fast Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera and flash, and access to Xbox LOVE and Zune directly from the phone. More information can be found in the press release.

As always, Engadget have provided us with a gallery which shows off the phone to its full potential. I must say that it looks very impressive indeed.

Remember to check out our overview of the other Samsung device unveiled by Microsoft today — the Samsung Focus as well as the other phones that have been revealed at launch.

    All I want of a phone is that it has large keys, in alphabetical, not qwerty, order – anything else is a bonus, but I cannot find any phone offering these qualities.
