"Samsung's latest Windows Mobile 6.5 phone also runs the TouchWiz 2.0 user interface, meaning it skips most of Microsoft's experience and substitutes Samsung's. If you're looking for a smartphone packed with software and features galore, the Omnia II just might be for you. There are a few drawbacks to consider, however..."

The Official Phone of the 2010 Winter Olympics? The Samsung OMNIA II

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC News" @ 05:00 PM

"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.

Samsung Omnia II Reviewed

"This new Omnia is bigger and badder, with just about everything getting a refresh. The screen has gained half an inch- now up to 3.7" and the resolution has quadrupled to 480x800. AMOLED technology has replaced TFT for improved battery life and more vibrant images. Video capture is now DVD quality, and connection standards such as 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS are all on board, along with 8GB of internal storage."

Thinking of getting one? Want to know what the fuss is about? phoneArena have a fairly full review chock full of photos of the Omnia II, and are fairly complimentary on TouchWiz, battery life, and multimedia capability; so-so on the camera and call quality; and but disappointed on the actual speed of the device. That's really odd with a 800MHz processor on board - or are these fancy new interfaces outrunning the capability of the hardware to keep up?

Samsung B7620 Is The Armani 2

Posted by Nurhisham Hussein in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 10:00 AM

http://www.samsunghub.com/2009/07/1...ort-800mhz-cpu/

"The phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro (which I reckon will get an upgrade to WinMo 6.5 in the near future) and houses a fast 800MHz processor. It will also have an unspecified chip to handle graphics discretely, Stereo FM Radio with RDS, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth, Business card scanner, Pocket Office, Photo/video editor and Work/Life mode that could be something related to the user profile."

No idea when this is going to come out, and only a vague idea what it will eventually look like, save that it will have a slide-out keyboard and the Armani logo in gold accents. Still, the specs indicate a high-end device and no doubt a high end price tag with the Armani branding. The model number suggests it may be a rebranded Omnia 2, in which case we'll also see a 3.7" WVGA AMOLED screen, 5MP camera, and up to 16GB internal storage.

"The recently announced Samsung Omnia II GT-I8000 is Samsung's Windows Mobile successor to the original Samsung Omnia smartphone, one of the best selling Windows Mobile touchscreen phones ever. With the Omnia II, Samsung overhauled the original Omnia by adding the latest technology. While the initial release will run on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, Samsung will offer a free Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade later."

This is a very nice package - quadband GSM, triband HSPA, FM radio, 3.7" AMOLED WVGA screen, up to 16GB internal memory (depending on model), 3.5mm headphone socket, and a 5MP AF camera with LED flash. the::unwired.net thinks it will be released at the end of August or early September - anyone want one?
