"Bell and Samsung today announced the exclusive availability of the Samsung OMNIA II touchscreen smartphone - the Official Mobile Device of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games - to operate on Bell Mobility's all-new HSPA network in November. The Samsung OMNIA II will be the perfect device for accessing Bell Mobility's upcoming offering of exclusive 2010 Winter Games mobile content. Clients can also personalize their Samsung OMNIA II with an included Samsung Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games decal."

The most interesting part of this news isn't that the Samsung OMNIA II has been made the official phone of the 2010 Winter Olympics - it's that Bell, one of Canada's two CDMA carriers, is launching their HSPA network this month. Telus, the other CDMA carrier, is going to be doing the same - and both are doing so as a step toward an LTE-based 4G network.

"Lenovo brings the Games to your phone. Follow the Olympic athletes on their journey to Beijing. Download free mobile widgets for your Windows Mobile, BlackBerry or iPhone keep up with the athletes as they strive for Olympic Gold! It's totally free, customizable and ready for you to download now!"

I just received word that Lenovo and Intel have created some widgets for Zumobi that will allow you to follow the Olympic athletes on their journey to the Olympic Games in Beijing. The best part is, according to the Zumobi website, this is a completely free download that is customizable and ready for your handset. I haven't had a chance to download this application to give it a try since I have been on the road almost all day but if you are like everyone else and have the Olympics on the brain then I recommend giving this application a download!
