We didn’t see this coming just yet. Somehow..Samsung Omnia M (we covered it some time back) has made it’s way to Indian shores via a Snap Deal offer. Samsung unveiled Omnia M in May this year – announcing Europe launch initally. Well, it’s up for pre order in UK, according to IntoMobile . Samsung Omnia M is essentially a mid level smartphone competing with the likes of Lumia 710, Lumia 610 and Samsung’s very own Omnia W in different markets. In India, Omnia M is being sold at Rs Rs 17990 which makes it a direct competitor to it’s old cousin Omnia W and Lumia 710 (which are priced around 15,000 Rupees). Samsung Omnia M has a larger screen when compared to Omnia W while it’s RAM is significantly less (Omnia M was called an entry level Windows Phone from Samsung, unfortunately the price tells a different story). Take a look at specs of Samsung Omnia M here .
Will I recommend this device at this price? Probably not. However, the launch of Omnia M may affect the price for Omnia W(which is quite a phone for mid range) – this should help Samsung keep things going smoothly in the Windows Phone arena to compete with recently launched Lumia 610. In case you are interested, order link is at the bottom of the post.
