PhoneArena has published a hands-on review of the Samsung Omnia Lite, Samsungâ€™s cheaper version of the Samsung Omnia 2. The device features a 3 inch 400×240 screen, similar to the original Samsung Omnia, but lacks the massive built-in storage on the Omnia, with only the usual 512 MB ROM, and of course features more low-end looks.
The device is however free of the proprietary ports which turned many people of the original Omnia, featuring microUSB sync and charge and , according to one site, a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The device reviewed by PhoneArena was running Windows Mobile 6.5, and seemed to use this as the default interface, but also had Samsungâ€™s TouchWiz 2.0 interface available as an option, and a legion of touch-optimized apps, including unusually a file explorer.
Just because the device is cheap does not mean its devoid of features, with the quadband GSM/tri-band (non-US) 3G device having a 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, GPS, accelerometer and FM radio.
