Comparing Android phones is not so uncommon. With the great variety in hardware among handsets, it does offer something to compare. However, this was not the case with WP until recently, since due to the strict restrictions most of them came with the same specs. But with the Tango release Microsoft has eased that restriction a little giving manufacturers room to differentiate their products from one another. So if you are planning to buy a low to mid end Windows Phone you have got quite many options to choose from. A quick comparison of the specs should clear things a little.

Some specs of the Samsung Omnia M are still unavailable and will be updated soon. The prices may vary depending on the region but should be in the order–Omnia W > Lumia 710 > Omnia M > Lumia 610. On the software side there isn’t much to differentiate, with all the phones coming with WP 7.5. However ,a few exclusive Nokia apps (free navigation, Nokia reader and a few more) are really nice to have and can be useful.
