Verdict: The phone is actually targeting a set of users that was left out because of high price of Samsung Omnia 7. Both Omnia W & the Omnia 7 have nearly identical specs but with Omnia W Samsung is targeting a lower market segment.
But I guess timing is quite wrong for Samsung as Nokia Lumia is stealing the show these days.
