PhoneArena modestly calls their details inspection of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard Samsung Omnia Pro B7330 a preview, but I think review is much more in order.
They gave the device a good going over, has has published a review with many photos and screenshots.
The review is also the first of a Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard device in the wild, and predictably does not show much change from the previous WM 6.1 incarnation, with even the honeycomb start menu MIA.
The Omnia Pro B7330 itself however seem to be a pretty nice unit according to PhoneArena:
The body of the Samsung OmniaPRO B7330 is made of glossy plastic and we do like its smoothly gradating colors. The device sports 2.62-inch, square screen with native resolution of 320×320 pixels. The buttons of the hardware QWERTY keyboard are aligned in four rows and their slanting profile reminds us of the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000.
The device features some Samsung customizations:
Samsung has added three home screens and the one that we like best is called â€œSamsung WizProâ€. The personalization pack is reminiscent of the HTC-made TouchFLO 3D, but has been tailored for non touch-sensitive screens. It provides fast access to information about missed and upcoming events, favorite contacts, music player, gallery, a host of shortcuts, social networks and basic settings. We need to congratulate Samsung on the great job and functionality their device comes with.
The Samsung OmniaPRO B7330 looks like an appealing device that, thanks to its personalized interface, will be easy to handle by virtually anyone. We highly doubt it that it will manage to steal the hearts of business customers using BlackBerry handsets, but it will probably attract quite a few people who need QWERTY keyboard and capable organizer. Of course, a rich application catalogue is more than welcome and we hope Windows Marketplace for Mobile will offer one.
