While Samsung is subjected to restrictions by MS, Nokia will be able to customize their WP devices and that is a HUGE advantage for Nokia.

Bring on the Sea Ray, Nokia! We're waiting for that game changing device.

I guess there is not much to say about this phone since Windows Ph 7 makes it a standard experience on everyone of them but still I would like to point out the differences from Omnia 7 -
Screen Size reduced (With same battery mAH, the Omnia W should last longer now, Omnia 7 lasts about 1.5 days of moderate usage)
Looks like Omnia W has a front facing camera - most important difference.
Omnia W looks a little curved on top and bottom edges, whereas Omnia 7 is a perfect rectangle from frontal view
More use of plastic on Omnia W. Omnia 7's back is fully metal, except the top and bottom edges (which should be plastic to avoid deathgrip issues)
Front keys - Omnia W retains the traditional of Omnia 7's 1 hardware key + 2 capacitive keys, but the harware key is now rounded rectangle rather than perfect round that was in Omnia 7
Thanks for reading!
