Samsung is doing is best to give its rival smartphone makers a tough time. Recently, Samsung announced two Galaxy S II models, i.e. Samsung Galaxy S II LTE and Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE. Now we have come to know that Samsung is going to reveal its very first smartphone that run Windows Phone 7.5 Mango which is given the name Samsung Omnia W. The phone features a 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display with 800×480 of resolution.

The Samsung Omnia W is supposed to compete with the HTC Radar. Both Radar and Omnia W has so many features common in them. However, Omnia W features relatively larger 3.8-inch screen but carry 1GHz processor. It has 512MB of RAM with 8GB of built-in storage. On its back, it has a 5-megapixel camera featuring LED flash, autofocus and 720p video streaming, while it has a VGA camera on its front. HSPA, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, DLNA and Bluetooth 2.1 are different available connectivity options.

The Samsung Omnia W is scheduled to launch in Italy by the end of next month and later it will be released all across the world. The company has not yet revealed the price of the smartphone, but Computerworld suggests that the Omnia W will come with a price tag of EUR310 (US$418) exclusive of taxes.

Compared to other smartphone platforms including Android, Symbian, iOS and RIM, Windows platform is far behind in the race at the moment. The statistics provided by Gartner suggests that in the second quarter of 2011, only 1.7 million Windows Phone-based devices sold compared to 46.7 million Android-powered devices. The trend is changing as more and more companies moving towards Windows Phone. So, we can expect an increase in sales of Windows Phone-based devices in future.
