I was expecting something like Sgs2 for WP7. Super Amoled is kinda old , it should be the PLUS version. Other than that CPU is enough but 512mb Ram is low. Also camera should be 8mp.
I think we will see better devices from Nokia.

AnonD-17348, 27 Sep 2011The TouchWiz from then is a world apart from the TouchWiz of now... moreTouchWiz 3.0 icons were very similar to the iOS icons. Other than that they work completely different. As of TouchWiz 4.0, they look and work completely different. Yes, then we do have the drop down notification bar which iOS shamelessly copied Android.

TouchWiz skin over Gingerbread and Bada looks almost exactly alike, but they work differently.

How about you go deeper instead of judging by how it looks?

Looking good. C'mon Nokia, show us what's up your sleeve!

What a surprise another Samsung.

AnonD-5898, 27 Sep 2011Err....what do u mean by Bada is an Android-rip off, does it use... moreThe TouchWiz from then is a world apart from the TouchWiz of now, which is a blatant rip-off of iOS. Then we have the drop-down notification bar. Go deeper, however, and you have a very Android-esque menu, such as contacts, settings, etc.

Didn't go looking for more images, but I'm sure you can see how much they've "borrowed" from Android.

I like a phone with windows OP but this one has a too small screen for my comfort.

As this is the Omnia W, can we safely assume that Samsung have an Omnia S, R, M and Y in the works?

AnonD-17348, 26 Sep 2011Leave aside the Galaxy range of phones and tablets for a moment.... moreErr....what do u mean by Bada is an Android-rip off, does it use Android apps or something...if u're referring to the looks...ah....for Godsake it looks like that bcos it's made by Samsung...That "look" is not an "Android look" but a "Samsung look" called Touchwiz and Samsung has been using it all their touchscreen fones since...F480 in 2007 or so...And if it weren't for MS's restrictions....this Omnia thingy u see here would also "look" like that...U know why??...ITS MADE BY SAMSUNG.....So based on these facts what u're infact saying is that "Bada OS is a Samsung Rip-off"...:-|....how stupid....
