Priced at Rs 16,500, the spec sheet is unimpressive, to say the least. At this price, you're better off with the other decent WP offering from the brand, the Samsung OMNIA W, which boasts of a 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor, Adreno 205 GPU, and 8 GB of internal storage, all for the street price of  Rs 15,000 (as of this writing). Alternatively, the Nokia Lumia 710 is another good option, currently available for Rs 15,000 as well.

On the whole, there isn't too much of a difference between these handsets, and the price difference tilts the balance against the OMNIA W. Check out the gallery below for several hi-res images of the product. Lists Samsung OMNIA M With Windows Phone 7.5 And 4" Screen For Rs 16,500
