A mysterious Asus phone dubbed the “Omnia Killer” due to it’s Omnia-like appearance, showed up recently on the Intertubes. Speculation has been running rampant (an 800mhz processor?) about the possible details of the phone. Thanks to wmpoweruser.com, the phone has finally been given a name and some specs to go along with it. From now on it shall be known as Asus Glaxy7 (its’ codename is missing an “a”?) and it shall have the following specs:

  • GSM Connectivity : GPRS/EDGE/3G/HSDPA/HAUPA
  • GSM Frequency : 850/900/1800/1900
  • WCDMA Frequency: 900/1900/2100

All rumor and speculation so far but if true, the Glaxy7 may be another stellar windows mobile device to compete against the Samsung Omnia, HTC Touch Pro HD, et al.
