Now Samsung Omnia W has Come up with a Low Cost Windows Mango Phone

The Samsung Omnia Windows Mango phone is a low cost alternative for consumers on the market today. It was recently launched amidst some fanfare as people begin to assess their position on the market and the kinds of things that they want to achieve with this kind of gadget. This is a smartphone that is based on the Windows Phone 7.5 and the specifications are fairly impressive. An aggressive pricing strategy at EUR 310 before taxes is just the thing that is required. You may also get some subsidies if you sign up contracts.

  • The phone landscape is examined: It has been stated that this follows the footsteps of the HTC product list which was very successful during its time.  The Windows Phone 7 had struggled because they were competing against the iPhone which beat them with its high specifications. Therefore consumers felt that there was little justification for paying such high prices when they were not in receipt of a premium product as had been originally agreed. Geoff Blaber of CCS Insight believes that the new pricing strategy will be a winner:”What we are seeing now is far more aggressive price points with this new wave of Mango-based products, and there is probably a feeling among the manufacturers that they need to price more aggressively to really give the Windows platform a chance.”

  • The basics that you can get with this phone: The Samsung Omnia Windows Mango phone has a 3.7” Super AMOLED screen. This can produce a resolution of 800 pixels by 480 pixels. This is a fairly good specification within the class but it is not enough to justify a price hike. Therefore the moderation policy which has been undertaken is both wise and effective. The gadget is fairly portable with dimensions of 115.9 by 58.8 by 10.9 inches. This means that it weighs 115.3 grams. There are some pieces on the market which are more portable but this is fairly acceptable under the circumstances.
  • Processing power: When you get beneath the gadget you will find a 1.4 GHz processor which is capable of storage worth 8GB. A 5-megapixel camera has been added to the package and by all descriptions taking pictures is not a problem. There is some fairly impressive internet access at 14.4M bps which uses the HSDPA networks. The processor is slightly faster than what we say in the HTC Radar which was at 1 GHz. Nevertheless you have to remember that the Radar is more expensive at EUR 399.

It is not yet clear as to how Microsoft will react to the launch of new Windows Phone-based gadgets courtesy of the HTC brand. However the Nokia products are already creating some waves within the sector. There are positive reviews on the internet which seems to indicate that the public is going to enjoy these products. In any case the brand is expanding into different things so as to diversify their revenue source. That situation does not stop the rivals from also coming up with technological solutions.
