Samsung have just introduced their latest Windows Mobile smartphone - Samsung B7330 OmniaPRO. The announcement is surprising as the original B7320 OmniaPRO was presented only three months ago and the two are not that different.

The new B7330 OmniaPRO shouldn't be considered a successor of the B7320 OmniaPRO but better yet a regional version with few hardware differences "aptly" named to add to the already present OmniaPRO naming confusion.

The looks of the B7330 are quite reminiscent of the highly popular business oriented BlackBerry Curve line as well as some of Nokia's E-series devices (e.g. E71 or the newer E72) and the same goes for the features it packs.

The bar shaped Samsung B7330 sports a QWERTY keyboard and is expected to run Windows Mobile 6.5. It also flaunts a 2.63-inch 320 x 320 pixels display (a 2.4 QVGA one in B7320), GPS receiver, microSD card slot and support for HSDPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

B7330 measures 115 x 59 x 10,8 mm (117 x 61 x 12.7 mm for B7320), which makes it only a tad larger than Nokia E71 but still quite compact and most of all, thin. The similarities to the Finns' smartphone don't end up here. Weighing 101.6g, the Samsung B7330 OmniaPRO will also pack a 3.2-megapixel snapper and a promising 1500 mAh battery.

Samsung B7330 is expected to hit the shelves in Germany some time in October this year while its price is still a mystery. According to our source, B7320 OmniaPRO will never make it to the stores in Germany, replaced by the currently announced B7330.
