Omnia M will be exclusive at Phones 4U for at least two months
Samsung has finally revealed the shipping date of its Omnia M smartphone in Europe. The handset will arrive at UK retailer Phones4u, where it will be an exclusive. The Windows Phone device will ship with the 7.5/Mango version of the operating system onboard and be available to purchase with or without a plan.
The 4-inch phone will cost £290 (about $455) as an unlocked device without a SIM card, or free with a minimum £21 ($33) per month/two-year plan from T-Mobile that includes 100 minutes, 500 text messages, and 750MB of data. Other carriers will get the phone two months later.
The handset gets a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz processor, five-megapixel rear camera, and front VGA camera. There is just 4GB of internal memory onboard, however.
