Samsung intros mid-range Windows Phone Mango device - Omnia W I8350

Samsung has launched its answer to the HTC Radar, with a low-cost Windows Phone 7.5 Mangophone of its own - the Omnia W I8350. Scheduled to launch in Europe by the end of October (globally November), the Omnia W bears a €310 price tag, excluding taxes and subsidies, and has been spotted listed at €450 unlocked. With the W, the device belongs in the high-tier Wonder segment of Samsung's new naming scheme, below the 'R' Royal/Refined and 'S' Super-Smart devices.
The Samsung Omnia W bears a 3.7-inch (800x480 pixel) S-AMOLED display, and features a 1.4GHz single-core Scorpion processor (a fair bit faster than the Radar's 1GHz offering) with 512MB of RAM on the Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset, also featuring Adreno 205 graphics. The Omnia W will come with 8GB storage built-in, with no card-slot for expansion. 
Other features include GPS with A-GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps, and Bluetooth v2.1 connectivity; a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, capable of 720p HD video recording. The Omnia W measures in at 115.9 x 58.8 x 10.9 mm, and weighs 115.3 gms.
According to recent Microsoft blog post, the Mango update will hit WP7 devices by early October.
