Set to launch three new mobile phones in November, including the 8-megapixel innov8 i8510, the touch-screen Omnia i900 and the F480.
The F480 uses the same TouchWIZ user interface that will be seen in the Omnia, but doesn’t run Windows Mobile. All three handsets will be launched in Australia in November, just in time for Christmas.
Along with the 8-megapixel sensor, the innov8 bundles HSDPA capabilities, Wi-Fi and A-GPS into the package. Like the Omnia, the innov8 will come in 8GB and 16GB models with expansion in the form of a microSD card slot.
The Omnia also boasts 7.2Mbps HSDPA-capabilities, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and a unique widget-style interface dubbed TouchWIZ.
Finally, the F480 is yet another touch-screen handset boasting a 5-megapixel camera. Similar in size and shape to LG’s LG PRADA (KE850), the F480 is a mid-level handset that offers HSDPA-connectivity and A2DP Bluetooth, but not Wi-Fi.
The innov8 i8510 will be the second 8-megapixel camera phone to hit Australian shores following the launch of Sony Ericsson’s C905 this month. In addition to its battle with the C905, the innov8 will also compete directly with Nokia’s recently launched N96.
The Omnia i900 is a Windows Mobile 6.1 handset with a full touch screen and is set to become a direct competitor with the iPhone 3G. The Omnia offers an accelerometer, built-in GPS receiver and, like the iPhone, a choice of 8GB and 16GB models.
