HTC Omega Coming The T-Mobile Way? Why Yes It Is.

Windows Phone 7 fans should pay extra special attention as word is coming down the upcoming HTC event to be held by our friends from HTC across the pond will feature a number of WP7 devices including the HTC Omega. What is the importance of the HTC Omega you ask? Well…it’s coming to T-Mobile. We’ve confirmed with our sources as of this morning a Boy Genius Report report that confirms the existence of the HTC Omega for T-Mobile.

It is believed that the HTC Omega could be the first Windows Phone 7 mango device for a US carrier and will feature a 1.5GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, rear-facing 8 megapixel camera, 3.8″ or 4.5″ touchscreen display. All of these specs are considered unconfirmed but with less than 10 days till the HTC event all should be cleared up for us soon.

      Actually it’s not, have you ever used it? It’s actually quite awesome and Mango makes it even better. It’s smoother and more cohesive than Android is and has many strengths. Try it before you pass judgement.

    I might get one. My T-Mobile G2x is still flopping with the Gingerbread update, & this is the 2nd one. I rooted it before hand, & that didn’t barely make no difference. I don’t get why I should solely have to root my Android just to get it to run properly. I wanted the HTC HD2 when that 1st came out, but by the time I had the money for it, I wanted something else, & the HD7 didn’t seem too much of a upgrade. I also heard Windows Mobile 7 runs buttery smooth, & Mango has got rave reviews. The only thing that held me to Android is the massive amount of apps, it’s like for “me”, my Appbucket subscription & the accessories I invested for my phones, but I think I’m ready to make a switch. I love trying something different anyway.

      I thought the same thing but I think BGR has it wrong cuz I know the Eternity showed up on Craigs with a 4.5″ screen.

      I didn’t know you had a multiple G2x’ man.  WP7 is most definitely buttery smooth like iOS and with more hardware options seemingly becoming available as well that huge Mango update, it shouldn’t be a bad switch.

      I don’t understand why you say not umptessive… 1.5ghz!!! 16gb internal?? My sensation has 1/16th of the memory.. maybe the screen isn’t too sharp but everything else sounds excellent to me.

      • Keepitcoder

        No. your Sensation has 768MB of memory. 1GB of user accessible storage space. This one has 16GB. 

        The memory is the main issue I see here.. new launching phones should have no less than 1GB.

          Who cares how much RAM it has if the OS doesn’t run as smoothly and the games have worse graphics. Android is so fragmented that developers can’t even take advantage of the more powerful hardware. Background apps waste the cpu and ram on Android, as well as OEM skins like Motoblur Touchwiz and Sense, while carriers load up Android phones with bloatware the user can’t remove without hacking their phone. 1.5GHz Windows Phone is going to be blazingly fast.

        • Anonymous

          Not exactly true, ever heard of Tegra Zone? That’s at least one way in which the more powerful hardware is being taken advantage of. Besides that I agree, WP7 doesn’t require the power that Android does. Even with half the power its smoother.

    When you have phones like the Hercules, Ruby, hell, the fucking Sensation and MyTouch Slide 4G: these Omega “specs” aren’t anything new.

    Sounds like a cool ass mid range phone other than the camera and Mango OS.

      specs are really nothing if the software on the phone can’t harness or use the capabilities to the max, so gingerbread and mango is important. look at how many people jumped for the gingerbread update making posts about it , they care.

        I’m speaking about the people who aren’t tech junkie/bloggers.  3 of my close friends have no clue that their EVO’s were running Froyo prior to me telling them that they were about to get updated to Gingerbread (what the hell is Gingerbread?).  They just cared about the hardware and that it is Android.  

        If I was a clueless WP7 fan and MS advertises the Mango update just as poorly as Google does their updates then this phone is just another run in the mill WP7 phone.  

        I hope MS/T-Mobile makes a big deal out of Mango being such a huge new wave of phones because otherwise its just lost in the sauce.  

        I completely agree though about the specs.  Hopefully ICS lets Android catch up with WP7 and iOS on a performance level.

      Why would you need more RAM? The simplicity of WP7 allows for minimal usage of RAM. RAM determines how many things the phone can take going at a time. The way WP7 is designed allows multitasking to not be a RAM hog. When you are talking about Android, something like HTC Sense can take like 400MB of RAM alone. You would obviously need more RAM with Android.
      For WP7 you just need a faster processor ( many apps take too long to load IMO) of course a better GPU… Screen technology should be improved, battery life, and camera quality/performance. 
      Thats just my 2 cents. Correct me if I’m wrong, I welcome disagreements =]

        Wrong. wp7 doesnt need more ram because it doesnt have true multitasking, unlike Android.

          Right! It doesn’t NEED “true” multitasking. It’s form, just like IOS, gets the job done. Only people who complain are power users like us!

  • Chris Johnson

    The thing that people do not understand about WP7 is that 512mb RAM is more than enough to run the OS because of the way it handles multi-tasking. Microsoft designed it to run efficiently with the listed hardware specs and until something about WP7 changes (in regards to how it runs) then having a dual core processor or 1gb of RAM is overkill.

    The 1.5g processor is more than likely to handle the slight improvements and additions with Mango. You can not compare this with Android which in some cases needs dual core and such to run efficiently.

    Case in point, on my HD2 I have to overclock my phone in order to run Android (certain versions like Sense at least) well. With WP7 my phone ran smoother than with Android, and that is without any type of OC’ing. I am just saying that do not discount that phone just because of it’s specs, I can bet that using it will be much smoother than using an Android phone.

      what an ignorant comment Chris Johnson.

    • Anonymous

      “because of the way it handles multi-tasking” 
      Exactly. The key is that wp7 DOESNT have real multitasking. It is more “efficient” because wp takes many shortcuts that make it look like it has competitive features from a parochial perspective, but if in reality, more of the “efficient” and “well designed” features are only superficial. 

      In layman terms, WP7 is merely a cardboard cut out of what Android really is. Good luck with your “smooth” “OS”

      • Anonymous

        I was going to say wp7 multitasking is a joke. yeah it runs smooth because you can do about half of what android,ios and even webos can do. Every wp7 fanboy is excited for mango update that only adds stuff that should have been in wp7 from the start. Not going to catch up to the big 2 with updates like that. And I am no fanboy, have no allegiance. I wanted wp7 to do something to catapult it above or atleast in the same league as ios and android but it seems MS only cares about making money off of android rather than their own os.

    For sales, the specs probably matter less than how the phone looks, and how well it operates.

  • Avatar Roku

    Funny the main spec people are not talking about is the most important one: the GPU upgrade. The Adreno 205 is much better than the Adreno 200. Developers can maximize Windows Phone software because all devices have about the same hardware specs. Its like a game console, you get more bang for your buck because there is no fragmentation or lowest common denominator worry about. How much RAM and CPU cycles does HTC Sense waste not to mention TMobile preinstalled bloatware which you can’t remove from Android without rooting the phone.

      This is another great aspect of WP7, the cohesiveness of the whole OS & it’s related apps. Apps for WP7 flow with the core OS creating a comfortable user experience throughout using it. This is one thing that Android lacks

    Everything sounds good except for the 512mb RAM, they could have at least done 768 which is just fine.  512 is a little bit low now, even if it is Windows phone 7.

    • Chris Johnson

      Another uninformed comment, what are you basing this off of? A pure numbers thing? 512 allows WP7 to run smoother than Android with 768 or 1gb. Try using a handset and you will see how it is.

        • Chris Johnson

          The question is, have you used WP7? Compare any Android phone with this new Mango phone and I can guarantee that it will provide a smoother, more seamless experience. Ram levels can not be compared between Android & WP7 because each OS is designed differently.

          Android is designed for a wide range of devices with different hardware, this requires the OEM to make the adjustments necessary to have that version of Android running on their hardware.

          WP7 is designed for a specific hardware standard and therefore does not run into the quirks and occasional slowdown that Android does.

          And I am not a fanboy in case you were thinking that, I am running Sense 3.0 on my HD2 currently and loving it. I just know after using a modified version of WP7 shoehorned to work on this phone that it will provide an awesome experience with 512mb RAM.

          Unfortunately, you’re incorrect. Ram is not the be all, end all spec.

          It certainly helps to have headroom… But it’s not such an issue with software that stays within its parameters.

    The beauty of Mango is the fact that it works perfectly well with the entry level smartphone user.  What MS never got was their chassis spec often precluded them from selling a sub $100 (natural price point) device.  Android is great for the power user.  I think Omega is a device that will be $99 or less at all times, which falls under T-Mobile’s mantra to sell “Affordable devices” such as the $99 Samsung Sidekick and Exhibit 4G.   Comparing Omega to Ruby is like comparing a Civic Sedan to a BMW 335.  They both excell at their price points, but they are different machines. 

    I would recommend Mango to people who just want their device to work well under moderate use (most new smartphone users) and those who aren’t all about customization.  I find Mango very easy to use (I have an HD2 with Mango), apps integrate well into the general user experience, the web browsing experience is superior and I can communicate better than my HTC Sensation 4G.  And Outlook syncronization is a dream on Mango.

    However, my HD2, just can’t Do As Much as my Sensation.  It doesn’t have Google Navigator (Which I love), I don’t have as many apps (the amount of camera tweaking apps on my Sensation keeps me loving Android) and I actually like Sense. 

    • Gm Aharrington1

      Thats because the hd2 wasn’t designed for mango and it’s not even running the proper mango. They chopped and hacked together the developer software to make it look like mango. They did the same with windows 7. I have an hd2 as well and tried their win 7 frankenstein model and it didn’t compare to the htc hd7.

    You never see a force close on WP7
    And for those complaining about multitasking – on Android its more like rapetasking destroying battery life. I have having a HTC WP7 because all my friends keep asking me for my charger

    I too am disappointed with the specs I have to admit.

      Trolling while calling others trolls. No, haven’t seen that before.

    Does this WP device have a sdcard slot? Does anyone else see this as a problem?
    I had a focus for a week, the sdcard slot didn’t work correctly… sorry microsoft I
    need more storage

    • Gm Aharrington1

      The focus was made by Samsung not Microsoft. So, blame the correct people for the jacked up Samsung made for the jacked up carrier AT&T. Other than that minor problem that Samsung made, can you name a single smartphone without an sdcard slot? No? That’s because there isn’t one. Also read the WHOLE article, these specs are rumored. That means it’s someone’s guess.

        Well, that frickin iPhone doesn’t have one, the Nexus S doesn’t have one and yes that is a big thing for me as well. I do not understand how a smartphone these days can only have 16 GB of storage and not have an sdcard slot. Well, the first Nokia devices are supposed to have 64 GB and I will wait for those. I hope some of those will come out on T-Mobile as well.

          Millions of people have been getting by with Just 16 gigs of storage… Storage is trivial with cloud services.

          Cloud services are trivial with data caps, throttling, and overages (on some carriers). So now storage is more important.

    gsmarena reported that the Omega will have 3.8″ screen while the HTC Eternity, coming to AT&T, will have the spec stated above.

    Everything I’ve seen has stated the Omega will have a 4.5″ screen!  3.8″ is just waaaaaay too small.  Any word on an FFC?  I’ve seen were some store employees have stated that they have signage for 4G Windows Phones…  I’ve been waiting a year and ahalf for a 4G Windows Phone…

    Pretty soon W7 is going to be like WebOS and HP touchpads.

      Pretty soon you’ll be running to wp7 for that sweet mango!

    • William Cron

      You mean the tablet that everyone now has to have? If webOS was truly bad and the Touchpad sucked people wouldn’t be falling over themselves to find them.

    So can’t we get a post witout it turninng into a bashimg of the OS or some name calling? Andriod is different and WP7 is different!!! Please don’t compare it and not everyone needs to like Andriod or vice versa!! I’ve been seeing some uninformed comments here and its just funny. I’ve a HD7 with Mango beta and it run as smooth if not better than my HTC Sensation but guess how much RAM it have? It doesn’t matter and please stop this childish stuff about this OS that and this. I am not going to tell you to buy an Audi A6 because I drive one and I’m not going to bash you because you drive a Honda Civic because for all I know that’s what you like. Please stop this nonsense already!

    What do you think is going to happen if there’s only one OS, lets say Andriod? It’ll turn to some crap because they will know that whatever they put out you don’t have a choice but to buy it. Why would so many of T-Mobile subscribers hate the merger or whatever with AT&T? Because there will be less competition and options!! Enough said to those saying WP7 will be like webOS and what not. I never used webOS but sure hoped it stayed around and I can say that WP7 got their multitasking view and switching from how webOS did it. I guess I have said enough already.
