Verizon Wireless to Launch Samsung Omnia II Next Week

 Verizon Wireless to Launch Samsung Omnia II Next WeekIn the market for a new phone and not satisfied with the current offering of Windows Mobile handsets? The crew over at Samsung and Verizon just may have the ticket for you, because they’re about to set the Samsung Omnia II loose into the American wild as of next week. This is one hot touchscreen phone and Verizon customers should get pretty excited about it.

My friend actually has the GSM version of this phone and he couldn’t be happier with the implementation of the Samsung TouchWiz interface. This user interface is built on top of the Windows Mobile 6.5 frame, but you don’t see much of the WinMo stuff until you really dive into the guts of the phone.

Going through the specs, you get a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, an autofocus 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, GPS navigation, and Wi-Fi connectivity. I wouldn’t quite say that it’s an iPhone killer, but it may be a suitable alternative for the VZW crew.

Look for big red to launch the Samsung Omnia II (i920) on December 2. The pricing is expected to be in the $199.99 range with a two-year contract and a mail-in rebate.

    Good information. Today I just got a Samsung Omnia SCH-i910 from the mail from ebay, and it at present looks that it is at stock settings for the Verizon Network. I plan to make use of this telephone on Metro PCS. I also wish to place Windows Mobile 6.five on right here, but I’m not confident which purchase I need to do this in. Must I carry it to Metro PCS as is and have it activated, after which it afterwards flash the ROM with 6.5? Or must I modify the ROM initial after which it carry it to Metro PCS? I’ve been looking all-around and I’m unable to find the response to this.
