Review of Samsung
Omnia Pro B7610 Windows Mobile 6.5 QWERTY phone OCWorkbench 18 Jan 2010
Samsung Omnia Pro B7610
We first saw the Omnia Pro B7610 at CommunicAsia 2009 held in
Singapore last year. Compared to most other QWERTY keyboard based solutions, the Omnia Pro
B7610 can be said to have the larger and spacious layout of the keyboard for
easy test entry.
Complimenting the keyboard is the 3.5" touchscreen display
that has a resolution of 800 x 480 (WVGA) and is of the AMOLED display. It
reproduces very good black and colours. Powered by the Windows Mobile 6.5, it's
central processor runs at an amazing speed of 800MHz, just 200MHz slower than
the SnapDragon variants.
The phone is customised with two user interface, the Work mode or Lifestyle
mode. In Work mode, you will be greeted by the standard Windows interface with
calendar, mails on the main screen. By pressing the side button, the phone
switches to the Lifestyle mode. In Lifestyle mode, Samsung customised the screen
with TouchWiz 2.0 and a 3 page customisable web front where you can drop your
widgets just like you do on the Samsung JET.
Connectivity-wise, the company hasn't skimped by including everything you could
possibly need in a high-end smartphone. These include HSDPA, quad-band GSM,
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS for navigation.
The Omnia Pro B7610 comes with a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and
flash. It delivers pretty decent pictures. It also does video recording at
720x480. As it has a hidden QWERTY keyboard, it makes this phone slightly
thicker than the rest at 16.2mm. Other neat features include Divx playback, DLNA
enabled for multimedia.
