Samsung Omnia Pro B7320 reviewed

omnia-screenb7320 WCCFTech.com has reviewed the Windows Mobile Standard Samsung Omnia Pro B7320, Samsung’s play at the Blackberry market.

They seem relatively happy with the device, especially the keyboard, but as a Windows Mobile 6.1 device they were far from impressed with Pocket IE, but were able to address this by downloading Skyfire.

They concluded:

Only a handful of devices from major vendors try to aim at the mainstream business user market segment. This segment is distinctly defined by having strict business requirements including exceptional email and messaging capabilities, along with having a full QWERTY keyboard and a price tag between PKR 22,000 to PKR 32,000. Surprisingly, a couple of BlackBerries and Nokia E Series devices fit these requirements.

The Samsung Omnia Pro B7320 is a nice addition to the mix and would most certainly be the one users would prefer once it gets upgraded to Windows Mobile 6.5 which would solve a ton of its software woes. But even right now, I’ll recommend the Omnia Pro to every business user aged around 25 to 30 who are looking for a great business device in this price range. Of course after the introduction of the Nokia E72 in the local market, competition would most certainly heat up.

Pros

  • Ergonometric Design
  • Good Physical Keyboard
  • Powerful Operating System
  • Upgradable to Windows Mobile 6.5
