The Samsung Omnia W, which was approved by Anatel (Brazil's version of the FCC) earlier this month and was rumored to be heading to TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile), has popped up for sale on Brazil's FNAC. This is an unlocked version that is selling for R$ 1299.00, or about $799.00 US. The price tag seems a little bit steep, even for an unlocked handset. But it's not so bad, considering they are asking R$ 1799.00 for a Blackberry Bold.
The Omnia W is a solid mid-range WP7.5 phone, equipped with:
- Super AMOLED screen of 3.7 "
- 8 GB of storage
- 512 of RAM
- VGA Front Camera
- Rear 5 MP camera with LED Flash and Autofocus
- 1500 mAh battery
- Dimensions of 115.6 x 58.8 x 10.9 mm
- Weight 115 g
- WiFi HotSpot

Hahaha! I see what you did there!
R$ 1300 is actually "cheapy" for recently released phones here in Brazil. We often see phones been released at R$ 1900 ($1170 US) base price.
