Samsung Omnia 7 Windows Phone 7 Headed for Europe; Available During Holidays

October 15, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung has announced the launch of the Samsung Omnia 7, the company’s first Windows Phone 7 smartphone. The company has confirmed that the device is headed for European carriers T-Mobile, Orange, SFR and Movistar, sometime during the holiday season.

The Samsung OMNIA 7 comes equipped with a 4-inch SUPER AMOLED touchscreen, a 1GHz application processor and a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash.

The phone also offers an unparalleled entertainment experience directly on the mobile with Xbox LIVE features and games, and Zune music and video. The phone’s customizable Start Screen features live Tiles that display real-time updates from the web, news, appointments, or social media status directly to the home screen.

The smartphone is the European version of the Samsung Focus, though there are differences between the devices.

The Omnia 7 has a much more squared-off rigid design. It is assumed that the “Omnia” name in Europe is due to the previous Omnia smartphones packing Windows Mobile in Europe.

There has been no confirmation on the price of the device. AT&T will be offering the Samsung Focus for $199 (€142) on a two-year contract. The Omnia 7 is also expected to come with a similar price tag.
