With its sleek interface and elegant hub-based navigation, Windows Phone 7 is quickly worming its way into our hearts. But operating systems need handsets, and that's where Samsung comes in. This is the Samsung Omnia 7.

We've already published our preview story for the Samsung Omnia 7, but we're sticking this photo story up just so you can whizz through the WP7 goodness from every angle. It's certainly an attractive device, and it feels very square and solid to hold. That said, it's surprisingly light. In fact, this phone would be perfect for skimming across a lake, and that's not an accolade we award lightly.

The Omnia 7's selling point will be that big, beautiful Super AMOLED display. Pictures and colours rendered on this slab look really clear and bright, and with a resolution of 800x480 pixels, we didn't notice too much annoying blurriness either.

There's a 1GHz Qualcomm processor lurking within the Omnia 7's depths, which we hope will make playing games or watching movies a really smooth affair. We can certainly testify that the phone was able to run the WP7 OS very quickly -- we didn't notice any lag during our testing.

Around the back there's a 5-megapixel camera which can also record 720p video. All in all a neat looking phone. Keep it CNET for the full review!
