First announced back in November last year, the Omnia W is the first smartphone from Samsung using Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system.

I played with the phone during its launch yesterday together with two other smartphones (GALAXY Nexus and GALAXY W) and two tablets (GALAXY Tab 7.7 and GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus).

The phone was fast and responsive and the interface reminded me of Nokia’s newly launched Lumia 800, which is also based on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.

Samsung’s Omnia W has a sleek design with a metallic finish and a rich 3.7” Super AMOLED display, giving vivid clarity for photos and videos captured with the 5MP camera.

The latest Windows Phone version provides enhanced usability including superior web browsing with integration of Internet Explorer 9 and Bing, as well as Office Hub that provides productivity on-the-go.

The smartphone includes Samsung-exclusive productivity apps including Samsung AllShare that provides seamless content transfer between the smartphone and other DLNA-enabled devices such as HDTVs, monitors and digital cameras.

Here are the main technical specifications of the Omnia W.
