The Samsung M8800 has the same TouchWiz interface as the Samsung Omnia and Samsung F480 Tocco, however this time they've added a Weather and Google widgets.

Unfortunately, the lack of Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) functionality is a bit of a downer and would create it hard to compete with the rivaling LG KC910 Renoir.
