Samsung Omnia now in Purple

Samsung are about to release a new colour variant to the i900 Omnia, it’s purple to complement the already existing black and white versions. Also added in is new security and social applications plus new home screen widgets and a TV-out cable. Specs of the phone remain untouched – 3.2-inch WQVGA touch display, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, Wi-Fi, HSDPA and GPS support. The internal storage also stays the same with 8 and 16-gig versions.

The new Omnia also sports several new home screen widgets as well as the SecureRed application (used to perform remote access and remote wipe on the device in case it’s stolen).

The increasing social networking mania left its print on the Omnia too – mySpace, Facebook and Flickr clients are integrated on board.

If that’s not enough for you, then SpaceMe, ExploreMe and PlaceMe come on help. These three new services enable geo-referencing between your friends from the social networks and help share your common points of interest (POIs).

The retail package of the reloaded Samsung Omnia is now expanded with a TV-out cable that was not available in the original pack.

The new Omnia will hit the shelves in Italy (the first European country where it was made available) as early as this month at a price of 469 euro (or 600 US dollars). There is no info about its availability in other countries.
