Samsung outs 806MHz T*Omnia

by on25 November 2008


Only in Korea for now

It seems like Samsung didn't want to be outdone by Asus and has launched its own 806MHz Windows Mobile handset, although the T*Omina is only available in Korea. The handset is quite different from the Omnia, which is sold in the rest of the world, despite using a very similar design.

Besides the faster processor, the T*Omnia has a slightly larger 3.3-inch display with a whopping 480x800 resolution, which is the highest we've seen on a Windows Mobile device of this type. Other features include HSDPA up to 7.2Mbps, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, S-GPS, DMB-T mobile TV and a 5Megapixel camera.

The T*Omnia will be available with 4 or 16GB of built-in memory and has a microSD card slot for memory expansion. It's also offers official DivX support and can play back a wide range of other audio and video formats.

The only downside would be a slight increase in weight to 133g compared to 121g for the Omnia, and it's also somewhat larger and thicker at 115.2x58.1x13.65mm. No pricing was announced, but there's a short YouTube video from the launch event with Steve Ballmer attending, which you can find here.
